Why indoor climate management matters?
Maintaining your properties is key to attracting and retaining tenants, but investing in improving the indoor air quality of your buildings can also have significant financial benefits. Poor indoor air quality can cause headaches, joint pain, and fatigue, and it can encourage airborne virus spread and increase susceptibility to colds and respiratory illnesses, for example. Moreover, poor indoor air quality not only affects the health and productivity of your tenants but can also result in increased absenteeism and turnover.
85% of tenants rate indoor air quality as the most important criterion for rental premises. Happy, healthy tenants are more likely to renew their leases and refer others to your properties. Hence, tenant satisfaction is crucial for property owners and managers aiming to maximize the return on investment on their properties and indoor conditions should not be overlooked. Moreover, it is five times cheaper to keep clients than to generate new ones, and this same concept applies to property owners/managers and their tenants. Hence, indoor air quality monitoring is essential part of owning & managing buildings.
Besides ensuring safe and healthy indoor conditions, indoor climate management lowers building maintenance costs by up to 30% and reduces energy consumption. With the current energy crisis and increasing energy prices in Europe, energy efficiency is more important than ever. You can find the right balance between energy efficiency and a healthy indoor environment with indoor climate management.

1. Data collection
There are two options to collect the data from the buildings:
- 1. IoT sensors – With the new technology, indoor air quality data can be measured with IoT sensors inexpensively from any building regardless of the property’s age or the building technology. The most typical variables measured are: Room Temperature (°C), Carbon Dioxide (CO2), Relative humidity (RH), Barometric pressure, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), and Particulate Matter (PM).
2. Building automation system API – In some modern buildings the indoor air quality data can be collected through building automation system. We are able to connect to the majority of building automation systems like Siemens Navigator, Schneider EcoStruxure Building, Fidelix Cloud, Caverion Drive (SmartView), Honeywell Niagara (ARE Sensus, Centraline ArenaNX, Trend Control IQVision), Ouman Ounet, and Granlund Manager (Metrix).
