Why do I need a CO2 Monitor?

The modern day home is becoming increasingly airtight as housebuilders strive to improve energy efficiency within the home, driven by building regulation requirements. You require a CO2 monitor to ensure the air quality inside your home or building is safe and healthy for the occupants.

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colourless, odourless gas that is produced by the human body and by the burning of fossil fuels.

Elevated levels of CO2 in indoor spaces can be an indication of poor ventilation and a lack of fresh air. Prolonged exposure to high levels of CO2 can have negative effects on human health and well-being, such as headaches, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating. 

How does the DETA 1142 (CO2) Monitor work?

The DETA 1142 comes with a digital readout, alternating between live CO2 levels and temperature (degC) with CO2 Levels logged over a 24 hour period.

Readings for 8 hour and 24 hour average as well as 24 hour peak are logged along with traffic light style indicators giving occupants a concise indication of CO2 levels and whether to take further action to reduce levels of CO2 within the home.

The DETA 1142 complies with the Scottish Technical Handbook October 2015 requirements for CO2 monitoring within domestic dwellings. CE Approved.

Where should I install the CO2 Monitor?

Easily installed within a 35mm flush backbox with two part assembly. The monitor head is easily clipped onto the mounting plate.

With no setup required, this mains powered CO2 Carbon Dioxide Monitor is generally fitted in the Master Bedroom of airtight, energy efficient homes.

What are typical CO2 levels?

  • 250-350ppm Normal background level in outdoor ambient air.
  • 350-1,000ppm Concentrations typical of occupied indoor spaces with good air exchange.
  • 1,000-2,000ppm Complaints of drowsiness and poor air.
  • 2,000-5,000 ppm Stale, stuffy air. Headaches, sleepiness and stagnant, poor concentration, loss of attention, and slight nausea may also be present
