Does your staff complain about being cold in the office or have you felt a draft coming through the window frames?

High-quality indoor climate has a significant effect on the comfort and health of the users of a building, and therefore, the productivity of employees. Contemporary sustainable and energy-efficient technologies help to make the indoor climate and environment in a building comfortable for its users and increase their well-being. Indoor climate testing provides a quick insight into the quality of the working environment.

If you would like to improve the comfort of your working environment and indoor climate, you have come to the right place. At Forus, we analyse the quality of the indoor climate in your building. For this purpose, we measure various parameters during the heating and cooling periods.

Which parameters do we measure?

  • Temperature ºC
  • Noise
  • Lighting
  • Air quality and flow
  • Air humidity

We install loggers on the premises to measure indoor climate parameters. Our tools include data loggers for temperature, relative air humidity, and CO2. They provide an excellent understanding of the efficiency of ventilation systems.

In addition, we interview the users of the building about their level of satisfaction and ask what they think of the temperature, cooling, and other such parameters as well as what they feel is lacking.

Quality of the indoor climate – how can it be improved?


Fresh air

You should start with ventilation and using that to bring some fresh air into the building to ensure great air quality indoors.

Natural light

On work premises, natural light should be used as much as possible. It would help to cut the costs of lighting.


Acoustics and proper sound insulation are important for focus, recovery, and ensuring productivity.

Selection of materials

In the exterior and interior finish of a building and its daily maintenance, you should avoid materials and chemicals that cause harmful or toxic waste that could have a negative impact on human health.
