Comfort level and indoor air quality


headerbanner comfort and indoor air quality

Regular measurement of indoor air quality and comfort levels in workplaces enables the exact setting of the indoor climate and reduces the risk of staff shortages due to illness. Indoor air quality and comfort level measurement therefore also leads to fostering better staff performance.

Measuring and monitoring indoor air quality

The CO2 content of the area is used as a measure of the air quality. With Testo measuring instruments, you can assess the indoor air quality and the climatic conditions , e.g. in an office building, on the basis of the combined measurement of the CO2 content, temperature and air humidity via spot or long-term measurements.

Thermal comfort level measurement

People's sense of well-being in a room, their comfort level, depends on a series of particular external influencing factors. These measurement parameters can be determined by comfort level measurement and influenced appropriately: Air temperature, air humidity, air movement and thermal radiation.

Monitoring light conditions in the workplace

The indoor climate is also determined by the prevailing light conditions in the area. Monitoring these light conditions and measuring the lux level are therefore an important part of comfort level measurement in the workplace.

Measuring noise pollution in workplaces

Almost everybody has come across this: background noises which easily prevent you from working and from concentrating on something. If the noise level is high at work, staff efficiency is reduced - no matter whether the noise pollution is caused by equipment or colleagues.

Our portable sound level meters are ideally suited for measuring the sound in workplaces.

WBGT measurement in workplaces exposed to heat

Extreme conditions in workplaces often specifically lead to more arduous work loads. The people who are most affected are those who work in so-called workplaces exposed to heat. Standard-compliant measurement of the WBGT index (Wet Bulb Globe Temperature) is used to evaluate workplaces which are affected by thermal radiation, as well as to determine the maximum permissible exposure time.

With the testo 480 multi-function measuring instrument and its WBGT probe, you can measure and monitor this heat stress, e.g. in the steel industry according to DIN 33403 and ISO 7243.
