Historically, three variables have been used to define indoor air quality; temperature, humidity and CO2.
It is becoming more widely accepted that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as smoke, cooking odours and outdoor pollutants impact the air quality. VOCs can also be emitted from building materials, furnishing and operational equipment such as photocopiers.
The indoor air we breath every day has a paramount effect on our health and our productivity. It has been established that VOCs are harmful to human health. “Indoor air quality has a major influence on the health, comfort and well-being of occupants. Poor air quality has been linked to sick Building Syndrome, reduced productivity in offices and impaired learning in schools”.
Cars, trucks, buses, hospitals, schools, offices and industrial plants are areas most likely in need of air quality monitoring and control. This is where occupants are subjected to the same environment for many hours a day.
Our cost effective indoor air quality sensor system (IAQ) allows automatic control of ventilation to ensure the best air quality with the lowest waste of energy.
