I'm John Harbud and I set up Green Air Monitoring 17 years ago where we undertake indoor air quality assessments and surveys for businesses. This makes us a natural go-to when it comes to understanding indoor air quality.
Although mainly dealing with larger businesses, I often receive enquiries from home owners and small business users wanting to find out and measure their air quality.
It may be that they find themselves unable to concentrate, have symptoms such as coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, fatigue, dizziness and headaches that are relieved when they move into another room or leave the home. Something which indicates being able to regularly monitor their air quality in their home or small business would be a benefit.
The unfortunate thing is that costs can be prohibitive to this market as to run a formal indoor air quality survey requires using a range of equipment that can cost upwards of £10,000. The equipment also needs to be run and operated by highly experienced and qualified air quality assessors.
And what's more, the results are only applicable when the test was carried out. You don't get to have on-going results which makes paying out around £750–£1,000 per survey impractical. It's just not realistic for most home owners and small businesses.
Another thing I find is that accuracy is a big issue. Many low cost devices on the market measure one element accurately (i.e. aerosols or carbon dioxide levels) then use this information to infer other elements. Trying to mitigate or improve poor air quality in your home or small business using poor information won't be effective and can prove to be a waste of time, effort and money.
This indoor air quality sensor will be...
