IAQ impacts building environment
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of the building occupants. IAQ has an impact on the building environment, its energy consumption and how functioning or valuable the building itself is, and will be in the future. Indoor air quality affects relationships between landlords and tenants, but also has either negative or positive impact to workers’ health, productivity or to building structures. Therefore IAQ could also affect, positively or negatively, the value of buildings.
Loop One smart monitoring
Accurate monitoring and understanding air quality improve property value and health of the building. Loop One solution provides smart analysis of the collected data from any building, in real time. Loop One shows the air quality status to the user in easy-to-use and informative dashboard that helps to understand the possible impact.
Loop One solution includes API support that enables transferring measured air quality data and alarm information to relevant stakeholders such as property owners, maintenance or building managers, and other systems, like building management and automation systems. You are able to easily connect Loop One with smartphones, tablets or laptops and to generate reports and notify relevant stakeholders for any corrective actions.
Indoor air pollutants in buildings
Indoor air pollutants consist of any harmful contaminants in the air such as gases and particles that contaminate the air. High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants and have significant negative effects on the building. If the air is too humid, the risks of microbe growth and moisture damage increase. One common reason for this is that the ventilation is not optimal and there is not enough fresh air for lowering the concentrations of indoor air pollutants.
Common pollutant sources
Some air pollutant sources such as building materials, furnishings, and products like air fresheners, can release pollutants continuously. Other pollutant sources that are related to human activities like cooking, smoking, cleaning, interior decoration, or hobbies, can release pollutants intermittently. Health effects from indoor air pollutants may be experienced soon after exposure or, possibly, years later.
Energy efficiency and air quality
Energy efficiency can reduce both indoor and outdoor concentrations of air pollutants. It drives a range of economic, environmental and health benefits associated with indoor air quality. The heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) modules are one of the most energy consuming systems in buildings. The efficient management of HVACs is desirable for both the peoples’ well being and the reduction of the energy consumption.
