Demand for quality indoor air quality instruments continues to increase as we spend more time indoors than ever before. This means achieving a balance between comfort and health safety is increasingly important. however, indoor air quality (IAQ) issues can be complex due to the diversity of indoor environments. Factors such as airflow, temperature, humidity, airborne particles (PM 2.5 and others), gases and odors all have a role to play in an indoor environment’s air quality. Every one of these factors relate to an environment’s potential for toxicity or harm from bacteria, allergens, irritants, and more.
To address these IAQ concerns, national and local governments have developed guidelines and standards for acceptable indoor air quality. This is to ensure that critical spaces such as government buildings, schools, hospitals, hotels and more are safe to inhabit.
Assessing the air quality in buildings begins with IAQ investigations using professional grade measuring instruments. Kanomax has a diverse line-up of instruments to help with the most important IAQ tests. These instruments include our Indoor Air Quality Meter – Model 2212, Gas Monitors – 2700 Series, Handheld Odor Meters – OMX Series, Digital Dust Monitor – Model 3443, and Handheld Particle Counters – Models 3888/3889.
