Although beneficial to the Earth’s upper atmosphere, ozone gas (O3) is a highly reactive and toxic gas when found at ground level. Within the lower atmosphere, it’s considered a major pollutant that can negatively impact the health of those who breathe it in. Airsset offers a system that includes ozone gas monitors, so you can track O3 levels in your air – in real-time.

Why is it important to monitor ozone gas levels?

Only 20% to 80% of outdoor ozone levels should be found inside. However, your indoor space could have a higher concentration of ozone if you don’t have proper ventilation.

Too much ozone at ground level can lead to minor respiratory issues, such as coughing, pain in the throat and chest, as well as shortness of breath. In more serious cases, people who consistently breathe too much ozone can experience severe respiratory or lung illnesses and hospitalization.

Ozone gas is often man-made for uses like industrial oxidation, food processing, deodorizing, and medicinal practices. It can also be a dangerous by-product of UV filtration systems and certain air purifiers. If your company uses any of these applications or your building is located near a business that does, it’s important to understand your indoor ozone levels. You may also want to learn how much ozone is present outside in your area. 

If your building is in a location highly affected by O3, evaluating how much ozone is in your space can be critical. Without a system that includes an ozone gas monitor, your occupants may be at risk of exposure to dangerous levels of O3 that could lead to serious health issues.

Common effects of O3

Includes mild to moderate respiratory symptoms like coughing, chest tightness, and asthma.

Severe symptoms of ozone gas

Exposure includes more serious respiratory illnesses and hospitalization.
