Why monitor indoor air quality?
High levels of CO2 reduce cognitive function making it more difficult for people to learn, perform tasks and make decisions.
Poor indoor air quality increases the likelihood people are unwell leading to higher levels of absence and reduced wellbeing.
Optimising HVAC systems using live air quality data can significantly improve energy efficiency and increase equipment lifecycles.
Virus transmission risks are far greater in indoor spaces as microscopic airborne droplets remain in the air for long periods of time and can quickly spread throughout a building.
Future public health pandemics, workplace biosecurity and employee wellbeing litigation are just a few of the emerging challenges employers face in the post Covid-19 world.
Why does air quality matter and how does it affect you?
Legislators are preparing to get tougher on indoor air quality, as science proves it has a real impact on our health, productivity and wellbeing

Radon is a naturally occurring invisible radioactive gas that comes from the ground. It is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers in the UK, but can be managed with continuous monitoring
Carbon dioxide is an invisible gas that comes from human breathe that can cause headaches, restlessness and drowsiness. High levels are correlated to reduced cognitive function and the increased transmission of infectious diseases
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are odours and chemicals emitted by many everyday products like cleaning materials, paints, furniture and plastics. They can cause eye, nose and throat infections and even liver and lung damage in serious cases
Maintaining the ideal temperature within indoor spaces is essential for occupant comfort and wellbeing, as excessive heat can cause dehydration and fatigue, and prolonged exposure to the cold can cause numbness and white finger
Too much or too little humidity can affect allergies, asthma and cold/flu symptoms. When humidity is too high mould and damp will occur, and when too low, humidity causes dry skin and increased susceptibility to colds and respiratory illnesses
Controlling air pressure is essential in keeping buildings comfortable, as a slight positive pressure in the summer will help keep the hot outside air from penetrating the building, and a negative pressure during the winter will allow outside air in, to maintain humidity
Ensuring the correct light levels in the workplace is essential to occupant wellbeing, as poor lighting can cause eyestrain, fatigue and headaches, and lighting unoccupied areas impacts your building's energy efficiency
