CO₂ metres

Looking for the best CO₂ meter for indoors?

CO₂ measurement is more important than ever. Indeed, CO₂ levels reflect 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 from the Covid-19 virus - to spread more easily. Now that ventilation has become a basic rule, in addition to keeping your distance and washing your hands, CO₂ measurement is unthinkable in your home, restaurant, café, barber shop, office, etc.

The best CO₂ meter for the home 

A good CO₂ meter for the home 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 various CO₂ measurement instruments that reliably and accurately measure the CO₂ ppm value of your room. We offer the best consumer CO₂/°C/RV meter.

Looking for the best meter for:

  • CO₂ measuring at the office.
  • CO₂ measurement in the greenhouse or in a nursery.
  • CO₂ measuring in a classroom.
  • CO₂ measurement 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 it is possible to measure everywhere in the room whether or not ventilation is needed.

How long should I ventilate my home?

The answer to this question is actually simple: until the air quality returns to the right level. We recommend aiming for a 'ppm' of 400 to 800. It is very important to place a CO₂ meter in a room, after all, that's how you know whether the indoor air is at the right values. In most cases, it is necessary to open doors and windows facing each other 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 room in question are CO₂ and whether or not the composition of the air is healthy. If the composition of the air in the room contains too much CO₂, and is therefore unhealthy, the meter will issue a warning. The ppm value is then too high, which means you need to ventilate or air your room.

Ppm CO₂ guidelines for indoor areas:

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 the outside air level).
  • Okay: 800 to 1200 is still okay, but it's good to open a window or door or increase the ventilation system now.
  • Bad: 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 level 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 CO₂ levels, you know exactly when ventilation is needed. This way, you create a pleasant and safe situation for guests, but also for you and your family. Nieuwkoop offers various models of CO₂ meters that always provide accurate and reliable measurements.

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, event venues. However, this is just a selection of the sectors that now reliably measure CO₂ with a Nieuwkoop measuring instrument. With the GT2500, CO₂ can actually be measured in a reprehensible way anywhere, whether fixed or portable.
