Pollen season is beginning – which early bloomers are already on their way?

Meteorologists know it and allergy sufferers are feeling it already: pollen is back.

Enough oxygen – more power


Measure the air quality with the BZ25 CO2 air quality meter and the BZ30 CO2 air quality data logger for a pleasant climate

The climate at work must be good. On the one hand you have to get on well with your colleagues. On the other hand the room climate has to be good as well because we easily get distracted and slow when we don’t get enough oxygen. Often sentences are used like “The weather makes me tired”. Sometimes when there is a sudden drop in temperature or a rise in temperature that’s really the problem. Actually, in most cases it is because we don’t ventilate enough.
Not enough oxygen affects our brain power and, thus, our performance. A long-term lack of oxygen and a surplus of carbon dioxide can even harm your health. A CO2 concentration between 1,000 and 2,000 ppm already is conspicuous, a concentration of more than 2,000 ppm is considered unacceptable. Read More

Measure the air quality and breathe deeply!


Do you know how high the CO2 concentration is in your house? Can you breathe freely and deeply when you come home are do you get tired quickly while sitting on the couch?
How much oxygen and CO2 the room air contains verifiably affects our well-being. Especially indoors it is important to know that the more active we are the oxygen content decreases while the CO2 content increases. When your children romp through your apartment the oxygen content decreases pretty fast. When you cook or even when you are just relaxing on the couch the room climate changes. Therefore, you should – especially for staying healthy – always take care of the optimal indoor climate. Read More

Tips To Survive in the Asphalt Jungle and Improve Your Indoor Climate

Plants in the office improve the indoor climateWhat lengths would you as an employer go to, to ensure that your employees are as motivated and as productive as possible? You could reward them with a company car, which would probably break the bank and become extremely expensive depending on how big the size of your company is. Or you could encourage them to come into work and give their best by giving them more time off work, which may sound like a paradox and it isn’t. Or you could create a climate – not just figuratively-speaking, but literally – which will enable them to focus willingly and happily on their job and perform their task to the best of their abilities and enable them to achieve maximum results. How? Quite simple really. By welcoming them to the jungle.

Plants do not only look nice, they have a proven positive effect on both the human body and people’s psyche. Without even really trying, a plant can not only significantly improve the air around your desk and in your office by converting carbon dioxide, which in higher concentrations can make you feel fatigued and bursting with lethargy, into fresh oxygen, sugar and other so-called waste products, it can also significantly improve your mood and change your entire outlook. And in the right mood and with the right motivation, well, to quote two legendary Motown greats, “there ain’t no mountain high enough” and “no river wide enough” to stop you from performing at your best.
