As part of our quest to find out the cause for Bobby’s cough, the kind folk at Taida Vet Hospital gave me an air quality monitor to set up at home. I have to take some readings in several parts of the house, plus a 24 hour one. I set it up in our bedroom, as it is the place the pets spend most of the time in winter.
This monitor seems focused on the pm 2.5 and the readings have me a bit worried. Earlier today it was OKish, a low number and a blue light. I just woke up as a red light is flashing and I notice the number doubled up.
I do not want to turn on the air filter as I do not want to alter the readings in any way. But I am curious as to whether we have found something with this.
After some Internet search, I discovered that the red light means the air is harmful to anyone around it. That we have this reading in my bedroom is quite worrisome. What puzzles me is what can cause such readings at 6am.
