Indoor air quality matters

People spent more time indoors than ever before: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has estimated that people spent 90 per cent of their time indoors. Therefore, it’s easy to understand why we place so much scrutiny on the air we breathe. One of the biggest questions in recent years has been the effect of indoor air quality in places like workplaces and schools, where people must spend several hours a day. Many workplace-related issues, such as headaches, irritation of the eyes and fatigue, can be related to indoor air quality issues. Concerns over the effects of poor indoor air quality on people’s health, productivity and employee wellbeing have been raised, but the causes of people’s symptoms often remain unclear. As a result, companies and building managers struggle to find and fix indoor air quality issues.

To be able to fix and manage indoor air quality issues, one needs to be able to monitor the conditions. In this guide, we go through the basic principles of indoor air quality monitoring starting from what air quality monitoring means, why it’s beneficial and finally, how indoor air quality monitoring can be done. In this guide, we focus on monitoring indoor air quality in places of work and public places like office buildings, schools, libraries, and hospitals.
