Our ProClean blog is created to provide our customers with news and updates not only for our company ProClean NJ Inc, but overall air duct cleaning and dryer vent cleaning industry. So today we wanted briefly touch some new in residential air filtration industry.
New startup company Woosh appeared on famous TV Show "Shark Tank" and the concept of their product is to remind people to change their air filter on a regular basis. So the product is a new and innovative air filter which is connected to wi-fi and has its own app on your phone, so you can always monitor the condition of your air filter
We do not want to advertise this product, we are just informing you that there is a new innovation on the market and it might be worth it to check it out. Here are several reasons why we consider this product to be useful and beneficial for our customers
#1: First Air Filter that is connected to wi-fi
When we clean air ducts, we alway check the condition of the air filter at the end of the cleaning. And pretty often we found the filter neglected for a long time, which might cause leakage of the dust inside of your furnace and motor blower and gradually going back to the vents and back into the house. People just forget about it, it is common. But when you not only have an air filter, but the 2 in 1 gadget that connects to internet and notifies you that it is time to change it, this fact alone may change the whole culture of changing the air filter, it might make it autonomous and worry free and soon you might see other companies on the market offering similar product
#2: Refill Subscription
Woosh as any other startup company is looking for the ways to make money not only by selling you their only product, but they want to have a subscriber who will buy refills from them every 2-3 months. This idea is mutually beneficial, as you as a customer get your refills on time and in the mail, without the need to go to Home Depot or Lowe's.
This is how filter replacement works: These air filters are made of two separate parts, the frame with the wi-fi sensor and the filtration part which is inserted into the frame and this filtration part is foldable and easy to dispose as well as when you get it the mail, it is not some bulky box 20X20
#3: App on you phone
Even though that many might say the the app on the phone for the product such as an air filter is a gimmick, we would not agree with. Their app is very informative and shows the life of the filter and it's condition, when it is time to replace it and we guess that Woosh would probably add some other useful features that we do not know about yet.
Anyway, it gives you control and it gives you a possibility to integrate your air filtration into the entire concept of "Smart Home", for example it could be integrated with your thermostat app or display. We do not know if this feature exists with Woosh air filter, but it definitely opens the door for it
#4: Air Quality Monitor
Woosh also offers Air Quality Monitor along with the air filter. We do not know if it is good or not, but once again, the idea of an Air Quality Monitor which is connected to your air filter and app on your phone is great.
We hope that everything that Woosh shows us on their website https://wooshair.com/ works and will be available soon for everybody (now pre-orders only). We really want them to succeed and create a great not expensive product. We know that this or similar product will help us and our customers to improve the air quality in their houses. We did not test the product and can not recommend it yet, but we will keep you updated. If you tried this product, please let us know, we would be glad to share your feedback
