RESET Air is a sensor based and performance-driven indoor air quality standard and certification programme that aims to make indoor environmental health measurable, deliverable, and accessible.
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is continuously changing and not obviously detected by human senses. IAQ changes throughout the life of a building on a daily and hourly basis through the HVAC system, occupant activity and a changing environment. And even though the impacts of indoor air quality on health, wellbeing and productivity are understood and can be significant, a deterioration of IAQ is often undetected.
RESET collects data via constant monitoring and cloud technology and requires the measured data to be displayed to the occupants. It therefore provides actionable data and helps protect the health of the occupants in real time.
RESET Air certification provides a tangible return on investment for offices and property owners. For offices, RESET Air not only enables healthier spaces, but also more productive spaces. For property owners, RESET Air empowers the communication of healthier, more productive buildings to prospective tenants.
IAQ sensors are not new but RESET sets a new standard. In very broad terms, a standard is an agreed way of doing something. It provides a set of rules and framework to ensure that minimum safety and/or performance requirements are met.
In the context of indoor air quality, it ensures that the collected data is relevant and robust and reliable. This allows building mangers to compare spaces within a building or whole buildings. Tenants can use the data to compare different offices and monitor trends over time.
The standard takes care of the IAQ monitors installation, calibration as well the reporting methodology such as how the data is collected and saved in the cloud. It then gets processed and made available via an API. RESET therefore provides an independent quality control of the effectiveness of the passive or mechanical HVAC system in terms of fresh air management and filtration. The collected data can be used by other systems, like a HVAC controller, but the control methodology itself is not part of the RESET.
