CO₂ meters

Looking for the best indoor co2 meter?

CO₂ measurement is more important than ever. This is because the CO₂ content reflects the air quality and the degree of ventilation. It is essential not to let the CO₂ ppm level rise, because a high CO₂ ppm value means poor ventilation and that allows virus particles-such as the Covid-19 virus-to spread more easily. Now that ventilation, in addition to keeping one’s distance and hand washing, has become a basic rule, CO₂ measurement is indispensable in homes, restaurants, cafes, barber stores, offices, etc.

The best CO₂ meter for at home

A good home CO₂ meter will ensure that it accurately measures the CO₂ ppm value of the room. Poor air quality can lead to lethargy, difficulty concentrating, reduced productivity and headaches. This does not help when working from home. At Nieuwkoop, we offer several CO₂ measuring instruments that reliably and accurately measure the CO₂ ppm value of your space. We offer the best consumer CO₂/°C/RV meter.

Looking for the best meter for:

  • CO₂ measuring in the office.
  • CO₂ measurement in the greenhouse
  • CO₂ measuring in a classroom.
  • CO₂ measure in a restaurant or other catering establishment.

It depends on the size of the room, but we recommend installing a CO₂ meter at several points, so that you can measure the air quality in different areas of a building or room.

How long do I have to ventilate my house?

The answer to this question is actually simple: until the air quality is back to the right level. We recommend that you aim for a ‘ppm’ of 400 to 800. It is very important to set up a CO₂ meter in a room, so you know whether the indoor air is at the right values. In most cases it is necessary to open doors and windows for 15 to 30 minutes.

CO₂ ppm value

The abbreviation “ppm” stands for parts per million. Our CO₂ meter indicates how many particles in the air in the relevant room are CO₂ and whether the composition of the air is healthy or not. If the composition of the air in the room contains too much CO₂, and is therefore unhealthy, the meter will give a warning. The ppm value is then too high and that means that you should ventilate or air your room.

Ppm CO₂ guidelines for indoor spaces in the Netherlands:

In line with the guidelines, as formulated by the GGD, CO₂ monitors use the following measures to reflect the CO₂ level:

  • Good: 400 to 800 ppm (±400 is outdoor air level).
  • Acceptable: 800 to 1200 is still okay, but it’s a good idea to open a window or door or increase the ventilation system right now.
  • Poor: 1200+, a ppm of 1200 is really the limit for indoor air, at a ppm of 1200 ventilation is necessary.

CO₂ and virus spread

A high CO₂ content in a room means that there is little oxygen in the air and therefore poor ventilation. Poor ventilation is a perfect situation for a virus to spread among those present. By measuring and monitoring the CO₂ content you know exactly when to ventilate. In this way you create a pleasant and safe situation for guests, but also for yourself and your family. Nieuwkoop offers various models of CO₂ meters that always carry out an accurate and reliable measurement.

Fixed and portable CO₂ meters

An accurate portable CO₂ meter that can also be used as a fixed measuring point? The Nieuwkoop GT2500 was developed especially for this purpose and is already being used in various sectors such as offices, homes, restaurants, hotels, schools, canteens and event locations. However, this is only a selection of the sectors that now reliably measure CO₂ with a Nieuwkoop measuring instrument. With the GT2500, CO₂ can be reliably measured anywhere, both fixed and portable.
