Air Monitoring

A simple and reliable solution to monitoring indoor air quality

Feb 03 2022

Substandard indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause both immediate and long-term adverse effects on health. Accurately monitoring air quality enables you to take action to reduce health problems caused by poor IAQ.

Poor IAQ causes immediate symptoms such as eye, nose, and throat irritation, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue, although these effects are usually short-term and easily treatable. The only treatment needed is often to simply reduce exposure to the source of pollution.  However, some serious health problems, such as respiratory diseases, heart disease, and cancers can occur years after exposure, so it is crucial to attempt to improve indoor air quality, even when nobody seems to be experiencing any health issues.

To improve IAQ, you initially need to measure the quality of the air that you breathe indoors. The Honeywell Air Quality Monitor (HAQ), sold in the UK by Solent Gas Consultants, offers a reliable way to find out what is in the air you breathe. This user-friendly and compact instrument accurately measures the air around you for the most common pollutants and allergens, including carbon dioxide, particulate matter (PM2.5), formaldehyde, and total volatile organic compounds, as well as temperature and humidity. 

When operated with the connected mobile phone app, end-users can use it to check ambient air quality around the clock from anywhere, and respond decisively to protect people in the contaminated area of the building being monitored.

The instrument’s “Intelligence Quotient percentage” (IQ%) displays, in real time, how air quality impacts people’s cognitive abilities. The IQ% app screen will tell the operator how well people can function in their current environment. The tracking screens enables operators to track results over time, allowing them to make any necessary changes.
