Real-Time IAQ Optimization

Intelligent IAQ monitoring and autonomous optimization ​

Poor indoor air quality in a business setting can occur for various reasons. Insufficient ventilation may prevent fresh outside air from circulating within the facility and keep dirty inside air from escaping. Problems controlling the temperature, low or high humidity or excessive dust can also be contributing factors. Some businesses use chemicals and other substances that cause pollution and may create hazardous working conditions.
Healthy indoor air quality (IAQ) can return up to a $6,500 increase in productivity, per employee1 and up to a 35% decrease in absenteeism2.

Cohesion’s IAQ optimization continually measures indoor air quality and increases the flow of fresh air into affected spaces to reduce pollutant levels in real time.

Breathe easy,
we’ll take care of everything 

Cohesion has the tools, knowledge and expertise to monitor indoor air quality throughout your facility. Our technology takes a holistic approach to optimize conditions using the industries most widely used IAQ sensors and scalable automations, removing the guesswork and burden from your shoulders.


Following building certification guidelines, we plan IAQ sensor locations and map their location to the corresponding mechanical systems.


Get continually monitored TVOC, PM2.5, PM10.0, and CO2 pollutants and alert permissioned operators to high levels (based on ASHRAE guidelines).


Our IAQ dashboards provide critical insights into how pollutants move through HVAC zones and building and spaces over time, providing a window into current air quality and allowing a deep dive into IAQ trends.


Automatically optimize building conditions through autonomous remote BAS control that increases airflow in the affected zones and spaces and notifies management of adjustments. Deliver air where it’s needed most, when it’s needed most; increasing effectiveness and decreasing energy compared to other solutions.

What are the benefits of implementing indoor air quality solutions?

Indoor air quality monitoring is crucial for maintaining a healthy environment for employees, visitors, vendors and anyone else entering your facility. Cohesion provides reliable, cost-effective solutions you can implement throughout your building to experience significant improvements

Improve transparency

Implementing indoor air quality monitoring systems will provide all occupants with visibility into indoor environmental conditions. They'll gain more peace of mind knowing you're doing everything possible to create a healthier workplace.

Boost confidence

The COVID-19 pandemic caused many businesses to require employees to work from home. When continuously monitor indoor air quality, you will offer reassurance to tenants returning to the office environment.

Improve productivity and health

You will be able to create a healthier and more productive environment for all occupants. Your staff should experience fewer illness-related absences, allowing you to maintain productivity and gain a competitive edge.

Cohesion can send automated commands to remotely increase air flow via the HVAC System.

Grow your knowledge

Expert advice, industry tips, and highlights


Improve transparency—provide all occupants with visibility into indoor environmental conditions.

Improve confidence—among tenants returning to the office environment.

Improve productivity and health for all occupants

Connected IAQ Sensors – most Well, ASHRAE and UL certified sensors will provide real-time IAQ data Cohesion can integrate into our system.

Cohesion optimizes IAQ when elevated levels are consistent for more than 10 minutes. Optimization begins virtually instantaneously and can successfully return IAQ to safe levels, usually in just a few minutes.

In our research, during  IAQ optimization events, the overall energy utilization actually dropped.

The type and number of sensors you need will depend on you project goals. We are sensor agnostic and will work with your team to select the appropriate quantity and type of sensor to meet your objectives.

Our IAQ Program and Data Platform can help you achieve points toward most industry-recognized certifications such as WELL, RESET, and LEED.

Absolutely! Our IAQ Program is built specifically with this in mind, allowing you to welcome Tenants back to the office safely.

Yes, we can integrate with your BAS Systems. 

We integrate alongside your BAS System, temporarily overriding the system to increase airflow and returning full control back to the automation system. Engineers can see our commands natively in their BAS workstations and by default can manual override any of our optimizations. We never take control away from Engineers in a building.
