Inadequate Ventilation and High CO2 Levels

Inadequate ventilation can lead to the build-up of small amounts of contaminants which are difficult to identify and test, so carbon dioxide (CO2) levels are used as an indicator of adequate ventilation in a room. Carbon dioxide is released by combustion of fuels and every time we breathe. It is normally measured at 300-350 ppm (parts per million) in the atmosphere. The legal exposure limit is a
