Achieve WELL Certification with Kaiterra IAQ Monitoring

Our RESET-Certified Grade B air quality monitors are part of the Works with WELL Catalog and designed to help you achieve WELL Certification.

Kaiterra IAQ Solutions for Building certification

Through the continuous monitoring pathway, you can earn a maximum of 8 points by implementing Kaiterra air quality monitoring solutions

Air Concept
Air Quality
Kaiterra monitors help you measure a portion of the key IAQ parameters required by WELL, including PM2.5, PM10, and TVOC. By monitoring and ensuring thresholds are maintained at acceptable levels, you can partially meet this pre-condition.
Pre-condition (Partial)
Ventilation Design
Meet this precondition by using Kaiterra monitors to measure CO2 continuously and ensure levels remain under 900 ppm, or not more than 500 ppm above outdoor levels.
Enhanced Air Quality
Use Kaiterra monitors to measure PM2.5 and PM10, ensuring levels remain below the enhanced thresholds to earn partial points for this feature.
2 Points (Partial)
Enhanced Ventilation Design
Like A03, continuously monitor CO2 with Kaiterra devices and maintain levels below 750 ppm, or not more than 350 ppm above outdoor levels to achieve this feature.
2 Points
Air Quality Monitoring and Awareness
Kaiterra monitors measure PM2.5, PM10, CO2, TVOC, and are also RESET-Certified Grade B devices, satisfying WELL criteria for approved IAQ monitors. Use Kaiterra devices along with our Web App to display real-time readings to building occupants, earning full points.

Thermal Comfort Concept
Thermal Comfort
Use Kaiterra monitors to continuously meausure dry-bulb temperature, maintaining levels between 70-77 °F during all occupiable hours to meet this pre-condition.
Thermal Comfort Monitoring
Kaiterra monitors measure both dry-bulb temperature and relative humidity in accordance with WELL device requirements. Continuously monitor dry-bulb temperature and relative humidity, using the Kaiterra Web App to display readings to building occupants to earn full points.
1 Point
Humidity Control
Use Kaiterra monitors to measure relative humidity in regularly occupied areas, ensuring levels remain between 30-60%.

The Kaiterra Web App provides an easier path to WELL Certification

The WELL Compliance Checker — found within the Kaiterra Web App — lets you see whether your indoor air quality complies with WELL Certification in one click, and export formatted data for easy evidence submission.

Kaiterra IAQ solutions for Building Certification

We use the Kaiterra Sensedge for our WELL Certified IWBI headquarters. The screens display color-coded metrics that staff can easily access; the dashboard has customizable time intervals for data reporting; and the monitors are seamless to calibrate.

Frequently asked questions

Do Kaiterra devices meet WELL technical requirements?

All of Kaiterra’s monitors are RESET-Certified Grade B devices and meet all the technical requirements for pursuing WELL Certification through continuous monitoring pathways.

Additionally, the Sensedge Mini is a part of the Works with Well Catalog, having demonstrated alignment with four strategies within the WELL Building Standard.

How often are sensor modules replaced, and are certificates of calibration provided?
WELL typically requires annual sensor recalibration, which means that you will need to change your sensor modules every 12 months to meet the requirements. With an innovative modular design, Kaiterra IAQ monitors can be easily recalibrated by swapping out old sensors for new ones. New sensors come with a certificate of calibration, which you can submit to WELL online.
How many monitors do I need for WELL Certification?

The number of air quality monitors you need will, of course, depend on the specific requirements of your project. For projects to meet certification requirements, WELL monitor density guidelines are broken down into the following tiers, and must be met according to occupiable space:

  • Projects with occupiable space of < 3250 m²: 1 monitor per 325 m² [3,500 ft² ] in occupiable spaces (minimum 2)
  • Projects with occupiable space of 3250-25,000 m²: 1 monitor per 500 m² [5,400 ft²] in occupiable spaces (minimum 10)
  • Projects with occupiable space of > 25,000 m²: 1 monitor per 1000 m² [10,800 ft² ] in
  • occupiable spaces (minimum 50)
Where should I place monitors?

Monitor placement should reflect the occupants’ experience of indoor air quality, typically mounted on a wall within the “breathing zone,” 3 to 6 feet above the floor.

It’s often recommended to install air quality monitors in open spaces and rooms that are regularly occupied. Monitors must be placed throughout the project and should be representative of all HVAC zones, building faces, and frequently used areas like lobbies, open and private office areas, and conference rooms.
