Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the condition of air within an enclosed workplace. IAQ is a function of a number of parameters including outdoor air quality, the design of enclosed workspaces, the design, operation and maintenance of ventilation systems, the number of occupants in a room or building, occupant activities and the presence of contaminant sources.

With respect to assessing the quality of the indoor environment as it relates general parameters such as temperature, relative humidity and carbon dioxide, Humber follows the guidelines set out by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) standards.
