Carbon dioxide is one of the most plentiful by products of the combustion process used by automobiles, trucks and fuel-fired appliances. For properly operated and maintained equipment CO2 will be produced in quantities 100 times or greater any other combustion byproduct considered harmful, including carbon monoxide, hexane, nitric oxide or nitrogen dioxide. This article shows a breakdown of the by-products of combustion by volume (in ppm) for an automobile at idle.
A simple tool made by a Santa Barbara Company for measuring indoor air quality and ventilation in buildings is now being used to quickly identify if shipping containers are carrying a hidden human cargo.
Ventilation is an important part of maintaining a comfortable, healthy, productive environment for students and faculty. Improper ventilation can have a negative impact on occupant health and performance, increase the risk from litigation and/or waste energy. Numerous organizations now require and/or recommend CO2-based ventilation control in different commercial HVAC applications. The following article give examples and links to these codes, standards, and reports. Also, some utility companies offer rebates to building owners for installing CO2 sensors. Other utility may offer rebates based on the energy savings potential, so check with your local power provider.
