Analysis of indoor air quality in a store with additional gas heater

Languages of publication
The quality of the internal environment is an extremely important issue, because users of rooms spend a significant part of the day inside buildings. The quality of the environment is largely dependent on the quality of the indoor air. The parameters of the air we breathe affect our health and the comfort of use of the rooms. Poor indoor air quality can cause a decrease in human comfort and various illnesses and ailments. Therefore, care should be taken to ensure adequate ventilation in the rooms, especially those that have an additional source of pollutant emissions. The purpose of this work is to examine the effect of heating a commercial premises room with a gas heater on air quality. The following parameters were measured as part of the tests: carbon dioxide concentration, air temperature and relative air humidity. The most important parameter significantly affecting the deterioration of the quality of the interior microclimate is carbon dioxide, the level of which reached high values, well above the hygienic minimum (1000 ppm). In order to compare the values of the tested parameters, the measurements were carried out in two options - for a period of five days with the stove running and another two days without additional heating.
