History of Air Conditioning

Posted by Nishant Batsha on

An AC Air Compressor from the 1939 New York World's Fair   Air conditioning makes modern life livable. Hospitals, data centers, businesses, and homes—it’s hard to imagine any of these without the comforts of climate control. In fact, the Energy Information Administration estimates that 48 percent of energy consumption in the United States is from climate control.

Hello World

Posted by Dan Myers on

Many of you know that Flair builds indoor air quality (IAQ) technology and Internet of Things (IoT) products, but what you don’t know is why we choose to operate in this space and our plans for improving it.  Which is why, in our first blog post, describing our DNA is the most important thing we can do.   What We Believe Within the Internet of Things, there are innumerable standards, vagaries around data ownership, closed consortiums and walled gardens.
