The average American will spend 90% of their time indoors which means indoor air quality matters more than ever for the health of yourself and your employees. Luckily, air quality monitoring makes it easy to ensure the air in your office is safe and clean. FMS Integration is a specialist in air quality monitoring and will make sure that you are breathing the purest indoor air that you can.
What is Indoor Air Quality Monitoring?
In order to understand how an air quality monitor can benefit your office, you must first ask yourself “what is air quality monitoring?” First off, Air quality monitoring is something that every business can benefit from. Air quality monitoring solutions give important diagnostic information about indoor air quality. Air quality monitors use sensors to report pollutants in the air such as carbon dioxide, TVOC, and pm2.5. Air quality monitoring also measures humidity levels and temperature in an office.
Air quality in an enclosed space is measured based on how many of the harmful items below are present. Feedback is then provided on how to reduce the amount of these toxins in the air.
- Ground-level ozone
- Particulate matter (pm2.5)
- Carbon monoxide
- Sulfur dioxide
- Nitrogen dioxide
- TVOC (total volatile organic compound)
Can I monitor my indoor air quality remotely?
You can monitor air quality remotely with FMS Integration and a real-time air quality monitoring system. You’ll be able to improve the quality of air to optimize employee health and equipment performance. FMS Integration makes it easy to protect your employees and your investments while completely remote.
The importance of indoor air quality monitoring for businesses
In addition to providing vital diagnostic information about the purity of the air, air quality monitoring can determine if indoor air pollution is negatively impacting your company. Air quality monitoring provides an easy way to track and quantify air quality improvement efforts over time.
Air pollutants can be harmful to employee cognition, drain productivity and be harmful to your business. In fact, workers are 5-6% more productive when air pollution levels are low in the office. High levels of carbon monoxide in an office have been found to cause:
- increased drowsiness
- 23% impairment in decision making.
- loss of concentration and impaired attention spans
- 11% reduction in productivity
Without air quality monitoring, equipment is also at risk for failure. Equipment can fail due to particles clogging or building up inside of it. This can result in a leak, temperature/power failure, and ultimately a costly outage.
The benefits of air quality monitoring
Air quality monitoring can save you money by uncovering inefficiencies in your office specifically in HVAC systems. These discoveries can lead to saving money on power, reduction in carbon dioxide emissions, and having a positive impact on the environment.
