Indoor air quality (IAQ) is receiving more and more attention because people are becoming aware of the impact of air quality on health, creativity and productivity. Major associations and departments around the world have listed IAQ as the top five key health indicators. Therefore, global enterprises, governments, schools, building owners and managers are paying more and more attention to how to achieve and maintain good indoor air quality.
There are many factors affecting indoor environment changes. HVAC system failures, construction plans or new carpets, office equipment, and other building materials can all cause changes in indoor ambient air quality. In the past, only when obvious problems or complaints occurred, people would measure indoor air quality, investigate the problem, determine the cause, and formulate improvement measures to improve the air quality.
Now, people usually continuously and actively monitor indoor air quality to maintain good indoor air quality to ensure that building users can get a healthy, safe and comfortable working and living environment.
IAQ monitoring solution
Indoor air quality measurement parameters generally include temperature, humidity, air changes, particulate matter (PM2.5), and gases such as CO and CO2. TSI’s indoor air quality monitor can help you quickly and accurately evaluate basic indoor air quality parameters. Maintaining air quality and comfort can significantly improve building user satisfaction (and thus increase concentration and productivity) and reduce absenteeism.
Health and safety issues are also items of increasing concern in air quality assessment. Building designs that reduce energy consumption have resulted in an almost airtight structure of the building, which makes proper ventilation more important than ever. Gas, vapor, and particulate matter have a certain degree of adverse effects on certain groups of people due to the different sensitivity of individuals. These “always existing”, harmful pollutants may cause poisoning, infection, allergies, irritation or other hazards. Recent studies have shown that at least one-third of buildings in the United States have air quality problems.
It has become increasingly important to quickly respond to IAQ complaints and proactively identify and solve potential problems before they occur. TSI’s indoor air quality monitoring instruments have extremely high performance, which can help IAQ experts identify problems in various indoor environments, formulate improvement measures and maintain air quality standards.
