Tapa’s indoor air quality monitoring solution can help make a safer return to any building

2020 November 19

Pre-pandemic, few businesses and commercial properties put monitoring indoor air quality (IAQ) on the top of their list of must-haves to help boost sales and drive foot traffic. But after months of shutdowns around the world to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, many schools, restaurants, places of worship, public buildings, and commercial properties are now focused on improving the indoor air we breathe.

alpscontrols.com helps businesses easily find, compare, and purchase HVAC and building automation control parts online to create more efficient and safer building environments — and it’s never been more important to address our customers’ very real and growing concerns around the health and safety of re-entering public buildings, which is going to be vital to our country’s long-term economic recovery.

We’ve seen an increased interest throughout our industry in improving the quality and safety of indoor air with air filtration, UV-C lighting products, and air monitoring tools, which is why we’re proud to announce that we’ve partnered with Tapa to include its Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Monitoring Solution in our online marketplace.

The country’s economic recovery and the long-term resiliency of commercial real estate buildings and many local, small businesses are found in the ability of owners and operators to address consumers’ very real and growing concerns around the health and safety of re-entering public buildings – specifically with real-time, data-driven insights to inform occupants that the indoor air is clean and contaminant-free.

A recent survey of 1,000+ U.S. consumers revealed that a vast 91% majority of consumers believe that IAQ is important in the prevention of COVID-19 spread — and consumers are taking this into account when considering re-entering public buildings. Additionally, 76% said that a ‘rating system’ on the IAQ of a building — similar to the rating a restaurant might have — would help them feel better about entering that building, school, place of worship, or restaurant.

By partnering with Tapa, we can work to get you the right air quality monitoring solution to help you visualize the quality of your indoor air at any time, from anywhere, via a mobile application.

Recent changes to industry and government indoor air quality regulations and standards (including ASHRAE, The CDC, and WELL) have been implemented to reduce flu, virus, COVID-19, and other contaminants. Thresholds have been established around five critical environmental factors: temperature, humidity, particle matter, CO2, and Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOCs). Tapa’s solution stands out with real-time, data-driven insights to inform occupants that the indoor air meets these requirements and is being continuously measured to deliver the Tapa IAQ Score ™ — an at-a-glance assessment of the building’s air quality on a simple 0-100 scale. When these five environmental factors deviate outside the recommended ranges, the score decreases, signaling that an adjustment should be made.

It’s not about getting back to normal, it’s about our new normal in a post-pandemic society and how we and our partners can do our part to help give piece of mind and ensure clean, safer and healthy buildings for those going back to the office, sending their kids to school, or simply wanting to dine out at a favorite restaurant.

And we’ll be sharing more about Tapa and their smart building management and tenant experience solutions that unify legacy building systems with new controls, sensors and IoT devices into a single platform for seamless access, management and optimization.
