4 reasons why you need to start monitoring indoor air quality now!

Carbon dioxide or CO2 usually is not found at dangerously high concentrations indoors but is usually measured to determine overall indoor air quality. By measuring CO2 levels, it is possible to understand if the ventilation systems are working efficiently enough in respect to the number of residents. If carbon dioxide levels are high (over 1000 ppm), the ventilation system might not be performing well and there is an increased risk of accumulation of other more dangerous pollutants. Therefore, it is essential to monitor indoor air quality to improve the following factors.

 

1.Productivity

Multiple studies have shown the correlation between indoor air quality and productivity. When indoor spaces are being sufficiently ventilated the performance of people increases significantly.

 

Results showed that employees in well-ventilated environment performed 61% better on cognitive tasks than in the standard office conditions. Further, by doubling the ventilation, cognitive performance increased by more than 100%. [1]

 

2.Health

Well-ventilated buildings are vital for people who spend much of their days indoors. Many of us spend up to 90% of our time indoors, therefore indoor air quality has a direct effect on our health and overall well-being.

 

High CO2 levels can leave severe negative health effects on people such as headaches, fatigue, dizziness and general discomfort. By being aware when the CO2 levels have crossed the undesired threshold, such issues can be prevented and overall well-being and comfort level increased.

3.Sleep

Poor indoor air quality can affect such vital processes as sleep. Poor sleep can lead to sleep-distorted breathing, weakened immune system leaving the human body vulnerable to diseases.

 

Struggle with irregular and consistent sleep is a problem that many people face, in a study by American Lung Association, an estimated 12 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders such as apnea.

Even small improvements, such as CO2 monitoring and frequent room ventilation can help decrease the risk of sleep disorders and have better, more restful night’s sleep.

 

4.Savings for businesses

Improving the quality of the indoor environment is an important focus for organizations seeking to improve employee performance and well-being.

 

Working while ill has been shown to cost $150 billion in lost productivity in a US study. However, research has shown that spending just $40 per person per year on indoor air quality resulted in a US$6500 increase in employee productivity. [2]

 

The easiest and fastest way to start monitoring indoor air quality is to install wireless sensor monitoring systems, such as Aranet. They are quick to install, easy to operate and provide an alarm system that notifies when the CO2 levels have crossed thresholds and room needs ventilation. Aranet helps boost productivity levels, the overall well-being of employees and ultimately can even increase revenue!
