All About CO2 Detector You Need To Know

Carbon dioxide is the largest contributor to the greenhouse effect, and excessive CO2 concentration hinders our health and productivity, carbon dioxide concentration detection is very important. Mini CO2 detector 2022 version with NDIR senor and warning alarm increase home safety. What does CO2 detector do and how does it work? 

What is CO2 (carbon dioxide) ?

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a naturally occurring compound consisting of one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms joined by a covalent double bond.

Carbon dioxide is the most important long-lasting greenhouse gas in the Earth's atmosphere and a key element of the carbon cycle.

Natural sources of carbon dioxide emissions include decomposition, ocean release, and respiration

How much PPM Indoor Carbon Dioxide Concentration is Harmful To Human Body?

The biggest element of indoor air pollution is not the formaldehyde that everyone is afraid of, nor is it PM2.5. Most people understand the impact of formaldehyde and PM2.5 on the body, but ignore the harm of carbon dioxide. When this gas reaches a certain level, it will seriously endanger our health, and no purifier can effectively filter carbon dioxide.

When carbon dioxide concentration in the air is normal, it is harmless to human body, but it will affect people's respiratory system when it exceeding a certain level, because when carbon dioxide concentration in the blood increases, the acidity increases, and acidosis occurs.

1. 1000PPM

When the concentration of carbon dioxide reaches 1% (1000 PPM), people will feel dull, start to lose concentration, and have heart palpitations.

If carbon dioxide reaches 1000 PPM in an airtight bedroom, and we sleep 8 hours continuously, when we wake up in the morning, we will not feel well rested and will not want to get up.

If CO2 concentration in the air in the office reaches 1000PPM, the work efficiency of employees will decrease.

2. 1500-2000 PPM

When carbon dioxide levels reach 1500-2000 PPM, people experience wheezing, headaches, and dizziness. When two people sleep in a closed bedroom for one night, the concentration of carbon dioxide can easily reach 2000 PPM.

When the concentration of CO2 in the air in the office reaches 2000 PPM, the employees will feel sleepy, unable to concentrate, and mentally fatigued.

3. 5000PPM

When CO2 concentration is above 5000PPM, the function of the human body is seriously confused, causing people to lose consciousness and become unconscious.

LifeBasis 3 in 1 CO2 Monitor

this CO2 detector comes with high precision laser particle sensor and NDIR (infrared) technology, accurately monitor CO2, temperature and humidity at the same time. CO2 range: 0~5000 PPM, Detection temperature: -10°C to 40°C (14°F to 104°F), Relative humidity: 20% - 80% (± 5%) RH.


How To Control Indoor Carbon Dioxide Concentration?

1.  Grow house plant

2. Open windows for ventilation

3. In the case of not opening the window, only the fresh air fan can effectively solve the problem of indoor carbon dioxide.

The fresh air fan can absorb fresh air from the outdoors and filter pollutants, provide it indoors after adjusting the temperature, and then discharge the indoor polluted air by means of extrusion, which can ensure that there is sufficient oxygen in the room and solve the problem of indoor air pollution at the same time.
