AirScore – the Global Benchmark for Indoor Air Quality
A simple and reliable certification for indoor air quality.
We use the latest air quality sensors to monitor five key parameters for indoor air quality: humidity, temperature, PM2.5, VOCs and carbon dioxide.
The sensors are in place for a three-week monitoring period, then an AirScore is determined to give an industry-leading analysis of your building’s indoor health.
Five Fundamental Parameters
Humidity directly affects occupant health and comfort.
Low humidity causes eyes and skin to become irritated and increases the risk of developing common colds, flu and viruses. High humidity can impact feelings of lethargy and exacerbate allergies.
Poor thermal comfort can contribute to Sick
Building Syndrome (SBS) symptoms, which include headaches, itchy skin, dry or sore eyes, blocked or runny noses and rashes.
Particulate Matter 2.5 (PM2.5) is defined as fine particulate matter with a diameter less than 2.5 μm.
High levels of short term exposure can cause irritation of the airways, coughing and cardiovascular problems. Long term exposure can have more serious effects.
VOCs comprise a wide range of chemicals, which may be emitted over periods of weeks or years from construction and furnishing products. There is association between higher concentrations of VOCs in indoor air with allergies, asthma, and poor respiratory health.
Indoor CO2 sources are human and animal respiration and combustion. Occupied indoor concentrations of
CO2 are significantly higher than outdoor.
Elevated levels of CO2 can cause up to 11%
reduction in productivity. Studies show this is a result of impaired cognitive function with decision making ability and information usage being most significantly
