Transparent air quality

Air quality is a sensitive issue, especially when many people come together in one room. With indoor air measurement technology, sensors can contribute to the transparency of air quality. We will show you more positive aspects of this technology in this blog.


Sensoren und Luftqualität II


Good or bad air quality is crucial for how effectively we work and learn, furthermore determines our job satisfaction. Good air quality monitoring also makes sense for energy reasons: it gives facility management another control option for their heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) strategy and can thus optimize energy costs. The installation and operation of a technology for indoor air measurement is simple, robust, and efficient in operation.


In our blog «Indoor Air Quality» we have already listed some reasons for the use of indoor air measurement technology. We now outline further points of how plug-and-play sensors and indoor air measurement can contribute to improved indoor air quality:

  • Reduce energy costs: A recurring topic of contention during the winter months: Heating and ventilating at the same time. Heating air is a major contributor to deteriorated indoor air quality. Thanks to room air measurement, the indoor air quality can be quantified independently of the subjective feeling of warmth and fresh air. The sensors can not only detect temperature values, but also CO2 content and humidity. This allows ventilation in a much more targeted and efficient manner. This is good for the wallet especially in times of drastically rising energy prices, where higher energy efficiency is achieved, and thus energy costs reduced.
  • Making facility management more efficient: Room air measurements are the basis for an efficient HVAC strategy. With the help of indoor air measurement technology, facility management can use the measured air quality values for efficient control of the HVAC equipment. This allows buildings to be heated sensibly and cost-effectively and thus increasing energy efficiency. Demand-based control of ventilation and heating technology also helps to reduce operating costs. The room sensors can also be connected to the alarm system. In this way, air pressure differences between the rooms can provide information about air flow in the building.

Transparent indoor air quality is not only highly useful but can save energy costs and contribute to efficient building operations.
