Carbon dioxide, or CO2, is a very common, naturally occurring molecule. In everyday conditions on Earth, carbon dioxide is a commonly occurring gas that is all around us. It is colourless, odourless, is naturally present in Earth's atmosphere and is an important part of Earth's carbon cycle. It does however, in spite of its natural presence, have a negative effect on indoor air quality.

What should I do now?

Outdoor air has around 400 ppm of CO2 and if possible, indoor air should never rise above 1000 ppm. For every increase of 400 ppm, cognitive scores like critical thinking, problem solving and decision making decrease by 21%.

This is why the Airthings Wave Plus allows you to monitor the CO2 level of your professional or personal environment.
