Air quality monitors, also known as air pollution monitors, are devices used to monitor and check the quality of the indoor and outdoor air. These compact, handheld machines are able to measure all essential parameters such as humidity, temperature, air volume, air velocity, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and % of outdoor air calculation. Air quality meters are used for health and safety purposes to prevent harmful pollutants such as mould, gas and carbon dioxide (CO2).
Measuring air quality is an essential part of facilities maintenance and HVAC system maintenance. Air quality monitors are ideal for detecting indoor gas leaks and measuring the gas levels such as Volatile Organic Compounds, Formaldehyde, and Freon, Nitrogen Dioxide, Ozone and many more flammable, hazardous or toxic gases.
Some air quality monitors store the measurement scores and allow transferring them to the computer for further analysing and reporting.
