Airflow management is crucial to maintaining healthy spaces. As this guide explains, improper airflow can draw in moist air from the outside, creating molds that release spores that reduce air quality and cause health problems for people occupying the space. Inadequate airflow can force moist interior air out onto walls, ceilings, and other structural components. This encourages condensation and the growth of molds and other microorganisms that can cause rotting and structural damage to the building.

Pollution is also a considerable problem for occupants. An average adult breathes 15,000 liters of air every single day. Breathing polluted air can allow harmful substances into our lungs, where they enter the bloodstream and get carried to the brain and other vital organs. This can cause health disorders like cancer, asthma, and cardiovascular disease. Vulnerable populations, like the elderly, children, and people suffering from chronic diseases or lung conditions, are especially sensitive to the damage air pollution can cause.

In healthy spaces, including laboratory or industrial environments that require proper ventilation, the occupants’ health and safety depend on reliable airflow measurement. Often, building owners and operators are unaware of improper airflow in their ductwork or other parts of their buildings, and smaller leaks with low flows can go unnoticed for years. NJK Precision products are designed to maintain healthy spaces with proper airflow management. Built for maximum accuracy and reliability, and reading accurately down to extremely low airflows, NJK Precision products are perfect for adding to existing buildings or incorporating into new builds.

This guide explains how NJK Precision measurement technologies can help manage airflow and maintain healthy spaces without breaking the bank or totally restructuring buildings. NJK Precision products are designed for integration with building automation systems and built to be easy to install.
