Face masks, social distancing and hand sanitiser, the three things we never thought we would rely on as much as we would in 2020 and 2021, we have all also stayed home more than we could have ever thought imaginable. 

While we have become accustomed to masks and distancing and queuing in a socially distant way, we are also acutely aware of air quality in a way we might never have been before. Much has been reported about the quality of air in retail environments and restaurants and the need to keep fresh air coming in and going out of a building. But this shouldn’t just be an issue we consider in retail or schools or the workplace, we need to consider air quality of our living environment too.

Management of internal air quality is paramount.  A humid and carbon dioxide rich internal environment for example is a breeding ground for viruses increasing the internal viral load and greatly increasing the risk of infection for tenants and for those visiting the tenant. 

We are currently working with a number of social housing landlords to help improve the air quality in their tenant’s home. We are doing this with our smart goldeni technology which supports clean air initiatives by delivering insights into internal air quality.  goldeni’s suite of IoT (internet of things) enabled sensors and systems can monitor temperature, carbon dioxide, monoxide and humidity that provide the property services teams with further insights on the internal air quality of the home.  

High carbon monoxide levels are hazardous to human health, but other indoor air quality issues include high humidity which can be as a result of damp in the home and facilitates a breeding ground for known pathogens and viruses. High carbon dioxide levels demonstrate poor air flow in the property, simply advising the tenant to open a window will immediately improve the internal air quality and, in accordance with the Covid-19 guidance keep viral load levels in the home to a minimum and reduce the risk of contamination for those in the home. 

goldeni delivers real-time air quality data to property services teams to identify and advise of poor internal air quality – looking after the tenant with health and wellbeing in mind. 

Poorly maintained buildings can have far-reaching economic and social implications for tenants and local communities. By taking a proactive approach to facilities management that involves collecting and analysing property data, goldeni is a state-of-the-art technology that predicts faults before they occur.
