Building and IAQ
Precise measurement of air quality.
The carbon dioxide content of room air gives a measure of the air quality, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of the people occupying the building.
Air quality can be adversely affected by increased levels of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulates, or bacteria. Increased ventilation reduces the level of all of these unwanted contaminants. Measuring the CO2 concentration provides an economical way of ensuring that there is sufficient air circulation and prevents over-ventilation which can add unnecessary heating or cooling costs.
