Notes

Abstract: The focus of this research project was to investigate Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) monitoring technologies, government regulations and policies, and best practices to improve IAQ. The goal was to minimize the adverse effect of poor IAQ in direct relation to CO₂, by designing and testing demand controlled ventilation applications. The investigation involved: development of a cost effective indoor air quality prototype sensor unit for CO₂ levels; the testing of the unit in a simulated room environment; and collection of the data from testing. The data from the simulations was then compiled and analyzed. Additionally, literature review was instrumental in determining testing parameters and conducting experiments. This provided valuable experiences which will be shared with the educational community.
