How Do I Know If My Indoor Air Is Fresh?
Its very hard for us as humans to feel what is good or bad air quality. We can, to a degree, feel if a room is uncomfortable or stuffy but it is hard to quantify.
Most rooms however rely on windows for ventilation (manual) and that requires us to manage them and react to changes in the forces (weather) that drives how much air comes in, by adjusting how open or closed windows are.
What might be enough one day might not the next because of wind or temperature. Other rooms and buildings have automated systems (mechanical ventilation).
But how do we know we are opening them enough or that we haven’t closed them too much because its cold?
That’s where Air Monitors can help. We really want to aim for levels of CO2
• Ideally below 800ppm to 1000ppm.
• We should start to react by increasing the window opening as CO2 climbs above 1000ppm
• And if CO2 is consistently above 1500ppm despite your best efforts then it indicates that the room is under ventilated, and we might need to do something else.
Enniskerry Montessori – Ventilation Review
Working with Aisling, Qualair ran a three week Air Quality Audit in the Childcare areas and looked at all ventilation patterns. We reviewed over time when C02 levels would rise, when TVOC levels from cleaning were higher.
Result ! We were delighted to report to Aisling and her staff that her IAQ was really good and that a well placed C02 monitor would help manage the infrequent peaks that occurred.
