I monitored our indoor #ventilation for the last 7 days using an #aranet to measure CO2 levels. We only have "natural" ventilation (i.e. windows opened partly) in all rooms except the kitchen and bathroom. As you'd expect, ventilation is better on windy days. But overall the CO2 levels are higher than I'd hoped. Are there any solutions to improve ventilation that don't require major remodeling? #airquality
@R Subramanian thanks, this is with just us two in the living room though. My main concern is that it is inadequate ventilation when we have visitors coming over, then it quickly goes above 1400ppm. I'll look into some small fans, thanks for the tip!
You are welcome! The other option is to use portable HEPA air purifiers, which might be more effective especially with guests and in cooler weather.


My colleagues wrote a very nice paper on a collaboration between farmers and their neighbors, in a #citizenscience project to measure #airquality and odour annoyance. They concluded that characterisation of air quality using low-cost methods is possible, but expert guidance is needed. Moreover, education, commitment of participants and involvement of independent parties are crucial. Namely, the insights gained by participants and resulting dialogue were the greatest benefits of this approach. Read the paper here: https://www.mdpi.com/1424-8220/22/20/8053/htm
