Why is it important to measure the indoor climate?

Regularly measuring or monitoring the indoor climate is of great benefit to your health and your physical wellbeing. You can determine, for example, whether the temperature and the relative humidity are at an optimum ratio. The ideal conditions for feeling comfortable are a temperature of 19 °C to 22 °C and a humidity of 40 to 60 percent.

If the humidity is too high, this can lead to a build-up of mould. It is important to know that mould spores are constantly found everywhere in the air indoors. When the air has a high moisture content, it condenses on cold surfaces and creates a perfect breeding ground for mould to spread, which can then have a harmful impact on your health.

However, a balanced indoor climate is not just important for your health – it also has a positive impact on productivity. At optimum levels, a person’s performance can be increased by up to 15 percent. This means that regularly monitoring the indoor climate with a device such as the RM 100 Room climate monitor is particularly useful in offices, schools or universities.
