Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the air quality within and around buildings and structures. IAQ is known to affect the health and well-being of building occupants. Poor indoor air quality has poor building ventilation.
IAQ can be affected by gases, particulates, microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), or any mass or energy stressor that can induce adverse health conditions. Filtration and the use of ventilation to dilute contaminants are the primary methods for improving indoor air quality in most buildings.
Demand for quality indoor air quality instruments continues to increase as we spend more time indoors than ever before. This means achieving a balance between comfort and health safety is increasingly important. Factors such as airflow, temperature, humidity, airborne particles (PM 2.5 and others), gases and odors all have a role to play in an indoor environment’s air quality.
Assessing the air quality in buildings begins with IAQ investigations using professional grade measuring instruments. Acez Instruments provide a diverse line-up of instruments to monitor the indoor air quality.
