The importance of ventilating, in the news

You can feel cool air, but clean air should be measured. A CO2 monitor, just like a thermostat, should be standard in every home and building. Besides a pleasant indoor climate, a healthy indoor climate is also very important. It has now been scientifically proven that exposure to excessively high CO2 concentrations in buildings is harmful. It’s time for action. More information about air quality in schools, ventilation and CO2 measurement can be found here:
