CO2Meter's K30 CO2 Sensor and Indoor Air Monitoring

Indoor Air Quality and K30 CO2 Sensor

For most individuals, now more than ever, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring has become a vital means towards analyzing too little or too much fresh air. It's important to find the perfect balance between ventilation, energy savings, potential negative health effects and even productivity levels - as it relates to indoor air quality.

All of these attributes are contributors to negative indoor air in a given environment such as residential, commercial, and even office building environments. That being said, individuals often rely on CO2 sensors, meters, or analyzers in order to accurately provide concentrations as they increase/decrease in any given environment.

The team at CO2Meter, is one of those solution providers, whom continues to provide CO2 solutions which can monitor dangerously high concentrations of CO2 that without monitoring, could directly effect our decision-making performance, cognitive thinking skills, and overall health.

One customer that comes to mind when dealing with CO2 sensors and managing indoor air quality, is retired chemist Jerrold Billmeyer who currently uses our K30 1% CO2 Sensor Development Kit to actively monitor indoor air quality anywhere that he travels in order to better understand the indoor air across various applications.

Jerrold takes pride in being able to utilize the development kit which with easy USB plug-in capabilities can instantly display CO2 data within minutes via our free Gaslab® Data Logging Software.

CO2Meter: 1) Tell us a little bit about your industry. How did you get started, and what is your main mission?

Billmeyer: "I am a retired chemist and now live in a retirement community. With the COVID shut down across restaurants and even before the virus the air was "so-so" so I make certain that I can monitor CO2 levels across day-to-day environments for better analysis."

CO2Meter: What are your main environments?

Billmeyer: "Currently I am measuring levels throughout majority of public places such as restaurants, shops, community centers, and even during transporation."

CO2Meter: In your experience what has been the biggest advent/change in your industry recently?

Billmeyer: "Due to the pandemic the closing of many commercial buildings, restaurants, etc. due to the virus."

CO2Meter: Tell us about your experience with CO2Meter products and the overall ease of use in your application?

Billmeyer: "CO2Meter has been a great way to deliver accurate concentrations while on the go. The K30 provides accurate measurements, combined with the software giving a clear display dashboard, change of intervals, and ability to export assigning data and ensuring spot check measurements. I have used also Netatmo and a Chinese unbranded CO2 sensor."

CO2Meter: Why did you choose CO2Meter as a sensor provider?

Billmeyer: "CO2Meter is a very easy to work with company. Having many buildings close ventilation was terrible and with my calibration the outside air was 410PPM! Our committee now has evidence to back our overall arguments. I even verified the General Services tech's statement that our hall was set to input 100% outside air. It is even now even though it is not cooled, at least it is fresh, again".

CO2Meter: Has anyone in your company or those areound you experienced any unfortunate CO2 incidents?

Billmeyer: "No."

CO2Meter: How do you maintain your standards of air quality across such a broad range of applications?

Billmeyer: "I refer to the building codes and indoor air quality standards for commercial buildings which discusses concentration limits, exposure periods, and satisfactory perceived air quality measurements and ventilation rates."

Additionally, many individuals are also trying to combat Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) symptoms due to poor air which can include headaches, drowsiness, and loss of concentration. High levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) specifically can also impair employee productivity, cognitive function, and decision making.

In addition to customers like Jerrold, CO2Meter has several key partnerships whom all have found our fixed wall mounted devices, or desktop solutions to also serve as a huge benefactor when it comes to ensuring optimal indoor air quality (IAQ) for their establishments, customers, and families. 

The best way to deal with carbon dioxide (CO2) indoors, is to ventilate it. And, at CO2Meter, we are proud to provide solutions that can ensure an indicator of ventilation all while maintaining our customers overall well-being. 

As we continue to ensure that we provide the highest quality gas detection devices, education and technological advancements - we would love if you could share your overall experience with us to better assist our customer's and supplier's needs towards the future!
