Volatile Organic Compounds
VOCs, volatile organic compounds, are cancer-causing chemicals released by cleaning agents.
As more people occupy a space, carbon dioxide levels spike, increasing the likelihood of sleepiness, distraction, lethargy and affecting productivity, concentration, and work performance.
Formaldehyde is a naturally occurring organic compound with the formula CH2O (H-CHO). The dangerous gas is commonly emitted by wooden painted surfaces, fabrics, carpets, adhesives & glues in furniture, and building materials like pressed wood & particle board.
Exposure to hazardous conditions resulting from building decay, water damage, poor plumbing, and legacy pollutants are exacerbated by high levels of humidity. Spikes in humidity may result in mold growth on any substance which can happen within 48 hours of contact with a surface, triggering asthma, respiratory symptoms, irritation of the eyes, nose & mouth.
Dust, fungi, bacteria, pollen, & diesel exhaust are common examples of Particulate Matter. The smaller these particles are, the worse they are for your health, especially because they are invisible. The smallest of the Particulates, linger in the atmosphere for weeks at a time, are freely transported by air currents, and are most likely to cause infection by bacteria released by just a single cough or sneeze.
Differences in barometric pressure can increase the flow of infectious particles. Certain rooms within a healthcare building or industrial space should be positively or negatively pressurized with respect to surrounding areas. Positively pressurized rooms are usually designed to protect a patient, clean supplies, or equipment within the room. Negative pressure is used to contain airborne contaminants within a room.
Optimal temperature conditions range between 68 and 74 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything over can result in mental fatigue causing diminished reaction times and delayed information processing.
Air Quality Index
Real-time air quality score is determined by the data acquired by the Airthinx IAQ device and advanced algorithms, providing users with a quick overview of the their indoor air quality score.
This is a pretty amazing new product. I saw it first-hand several months ago, and knew that its monitoring capability, functionality and ease-of-implementation could really make it stand out in our Awards program.Tim Hermes, Publisher of Business Sector Media
Real-time indoor air quality data provides value to customers, especially considering the potential health risks of waiting for a monitoring device to arrive or waiting for the results of a test. This is a cost-effective solution.Environmental Leader Committee
It’s relatively inexpensive instruments are installed within a business or home that gather data associated with air quality, all in real time. That information is then stored in the company’s cloud software, which it monitors for a monthly fee. At the appropriate times, managers or consumers are notified to shift their usage patterns. That not only cuts down on electricity bills and pollutant levels but it can also improve the performance of existing equipment.Ken Silverstein, Forbes
Langan has partnered with Airthinx to leverage the use of the devices in corporate buildings to help create a healthier and more productive environment while creating significant cost savings from maintenance and energy optimization.Gary Bacon, EHS Management and Compliance, Langan Engineering, USA
As a consulting design engineer, I am aware that the best intentions and latest technology often fail when needed maintenance and constant monitoring are neglected. In that regard, the Airthinx is a significant development and improvement. It’s low cost, easy installation, ability to monitor multiple potential contaminants and ease of integration with BMS and specialized monitoring/alarm centers allows for an unprecedented number of devices to be installed, and the original design intent to be fully maintained, assuring high IAQ.Valentine Lehr, CEO, Lehr Engineering
