How To Breathe Easier With Indoor Air Quality Monitoring Instruments

May 13/2023 HVAC &R

There is no way to overestimate the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ). Testo is aware that you don't want to think about the air quality in your facilities on a frequent basis. Despite being silent, air pollution may have a harmful effect on your employees and products. You can keep track of interior temperature, humidity, and carbon dioxide concentration levels with the use of an accurate and dependable indoor air quality monitor.

The importance of good indoor air quality

IAQ affects projects, experiments, testing, and other indoor operations in addition to having an adverse effect on the staff and personnel that operate in those conditions.

Pollutants are harmful to health

Carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, other hazardous gases, VOCs, and particulate matter are examples of indoor air pollution. All of these things have the potential to be harmful to the health of any workers who may be present in your facility. These levels can be continuously monitored by Testo’s IAQ monitors, which can also record the data. For instance, CO2 levels shouldn’t rise above 1,000 parts per million (ppm). The monitor’s sensors can measure the ppm in any interior environment and provide complete readouts to alert to the danger level of CO2 in the air.

The most frequent side effects include fatigue and a lack of attention. Additionally, it can cause the progression of heart problems and other potentially fatal ailments including lung conditions. In order to adequately aerate indoor spaces, ventilation systems are installed, but they need to be regularly maintained in order to function properly. Air monitoring is made easy with Testo’s IAQ monitors, which are able to detect any inconsistencies so that maintenance may be done before the air becomes hazardous.

Good air quality will improve breathing

Monitoring the indoor air quality in workplaces, workshops, classrooms, and public spaces can have an effect on how personnel or visitors breathe. The National Health and Medical Research Council’s (NHMRC) definition of indoor air specifies that it is any air in a “building occupied for at least one hour by people of varying states of health.” For individuals who work indoors or in offices all day, indoor air pollution is a major concern.

Due to this definition, experts in a variety of industries are required to keep an eye out for bad air quality at their workplaces. Poor air quality will eventually have an impact on the lungs and respiration in general. The inverse is also accurate. Potential health risks to workers, students, and customers will also be minimised by maintaining a certain standard of air in working facilities, even if it is not absolutely necessary for the sake of the work being done.

How an indoor air quality monitor can help

A building’s breathing air quality may now be measured and recorded using an IAQ monitoring system. With its superior measuring technology, clear measurement assistants, and innovative documentation techniques, Testo’s equipment can analyse and record IAQ and comfort level characteristics. A handful of the key analysis findings provided by the IAQ monitors are listed below:

  • CO2
  • HVAC and air conditioning grid measurement
  • Differential pressure
  • Relative humidity
  • Air temperature
  • Turbulence

Although each of these elements can be examined separately, Testo’s accurate and user-friendly solutions enable simultaneous measurement. As a result, it is simpler to avoid bad indoor air quality. What’s even better is that the testo DataControl measurement data management and analysis software makes it possible to do additional analysis with the testo 400 IAQ and comfort kit with tripod. With the use of these measurement equipment, it is simple to monitor the air quality at a given location over time and to monitor the outcomes directly. You will be able to quickly rectify a broken HVAC system or allow for increased ventilation thanks to Testo’s monitoring systems’ precision.
