CO2 in Our Environment: Understanding Levels and Solutions

Vicky Vaughan

A photo of children in a school shows how CO2 levels are monitored in indoor environments.

Why CO2 Monitoring Matters

High CO2 levels in enclosed spaces such as offices and schools can lead to several health concerns, including headaches, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating. ASHRAE, a global society dedicated to advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment, recommends that CO2 levels remain below 1000 ppm in schools and 800 ppm in offices.

Pioneering Sensor Technology: BMS, LoRaWAN, and CO2 Management

Building Management Systems (BMS) integrated with LoRaWAN (Low Power, Long Range Wide Area Network) harness cutting-edge sensor technology to offer real-time, precise monitoring of CO2 levels in indoor environments. At BOSS CONTROLS, our pioneering systems and expertise take monitoring a step further than just energy management. It’s about deciphering data for actionable, tangible benefits, ensuring spaces that are not only safe but also conducive to health, aligning with Global Goal 3, Good Health and Wellbeing.

This is why BMS controls, especially those implemented by BOSS CONTROLS, should matter to more than just the Energy Manager. Human resources and overall employee well-being are deeply influenced by these environmental factors, which in turn affects your Financial Bottom Line. Every company should view BMS controls as an integral component of their corporate responsibility towards staff and occupants.

The Risks of Elevated CO2

Continual exposure to high CO2 levels can result in:

  • Increased heart rate
  • Respiratory issues
  • Challenges in concentration
  • Overwhelming fatigue

The key to combatting these risks lies in effective ventilation, regular air exchange, and continuous CO2 level checks. With our state-of-the-art automation systems, we ensure that indoor spaces are optimal for productivity and well-being.

The LoCASE Grant and How We Used the Funding to Foster Green Innovation

Indoor air quality plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy and productive environment, particularly in offices and public spaces. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are common indoor pollutants that can have adverse effects on human health. In this blog, we will explore the dangers posed by VOCs, where they are typically found, and how the integration of building management control systems (BMCS) and sensor technology can mitigate their presence and improve indoor air quality.
