The importance of monitoring indoor CO2 levels in schools
CO2 monitoring in schools is critical to the well-being, productivity, and comfort of students, offering a multitude of benefits, including improved indoor air quality, energy efficiency, cost savings, regulatory compliance, and occupant comfort. Room sensors are used to monitor indoor CO2 concentration, a primary indicator of indoor air quality (IAQ) that is used by the HVAC system to facilitate optimal temperature, humidity, and air quality conditions. By adjusting ventilation rates according to actual occupancy levels, HVAC systems with CO2 sensors can optimise energy use, reducing consumption and decreasing costs. Additionally, CO2 sensors help public and commercial facilities ensure compliance with all building code requirements and regulatory standards for indoor air quality.
