Room sensors, operation units and thermostats can provide a healthy and productive indoor climate:
- Avoid dry air in the room. The transmission of viruses, bacteria and allergens are highly dependent on indoor humidity, so make sure to keep a level of 40 to 60% relative humidity.
- Controlled pressure. In rooms with controlled lower air pressure, and where viruses and bacteria exist, the air contamination of neighboring areas can be prevented more effectively.
- Control ventilation levels. With additional fresh air, the relative number of viral particles in the air volume is reduced and contaminated air is removed more efficiently from the area.
Please feel free to have a look at our whitepaper for more information on how your room can help you to be more healthy and productive!
Indoor Air Quality, Data Insights Take Center Stage
With Americans spending more of their time indoors, there is an even brighter spotlight now on building health. New digital technologies are making building operators and engineers smarter and more capable of managing occupant health, safety, and comfort. Read the full article featured in HPAC Engineering.
Achieve Total Indoor Air Quality
Making sure indoor air is clean and healthy throughout buildings is more important now than ever before. Learn how to address Total Indoor Air Quality (TIAQ) which goes beyond measuring temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide. Get the particulars on particulates and discover strategies for optimizing comfort while creating a healthy indoor environment.

Air quality in health and productivity
Sick Building Syndrome
Do you know buildings that give you a headache and/or irritation of eyes and throat? Potentially you are experiencing Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). One major cause of SBS is the out gassing from building materials such as carpets, paints or furniture. These gases are summarized as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Recent laws on energy saving require well insulated and draught-proofed buildings to minimize the need for heating and cooling. The resulting air tightness of buildings, however, also keeps the VOC gasses inside, creating SBS among occupants. Humid air as well can indirectly contribute to SBS by promoting the growth of fungi and mold. Besides devaluing the real estate, exposure to mold spores represents a hazardous health risk. Symptoms range from allergic reactions to poisoning by mycotoxins. The number one measure to prevent SBS is proper ventilation.

Let's get back to in-person learning - where the best learning happens!
We know ventilation and indoor air quality (IAQ) are more important than ever right now. We also know that it’s important to not only have the technology to mitigate COVID, but to have the “behind-the-scenes” know-how of building systems, from ventilation and filtration to control strategies, and how they can be optimized.
Learn how your school or campus can help improve ventilation and IAQ to the recommended standards for students and educators under the eligible use guidelines fully funded – even allowances for smart infrastructure investments now for greater resiliency for the future.
Students do their best learning in school – but only when the building is as safe and healthy as possible. Optimal ventilation, combined with other mitigation efforts, is at the heart of reopening education as safely as possible. Manually implementing controls strategies to align with ASHRAE’s recommendations, however, may be time consuming and difficult – but it’s exactly the type of problem that artificial intelligence and machine learning were intended to solve. Dynamic VAV Optimization applies AI to intelligently harmonize temperature, humidity, and outdoor / fresh air based on building priorities. Better still, it’s an easily deployed solution that schools love. Learn more
Qualified Improvement Property Tax Deduction Opportunities
Within the CARES Act passed in 2020, Section 168 allows for new tax deductions related to HVAC and Building Automation. Qualified interior improvements made by the taxpayer for existing non-residential buildings may be eligible for a tax deduction of the full amount of equipment and labor costs in a single year, without limitation on the size of the project. Use this flyer to ensure your building owners are aware of upgrade opportunities.
