Abstract


The present paper is a multidisciplinary investigation of the indoor air quality inside the Multipurpose Hall of the University of Oradea, based both on specific monitoring and questionnaire-based survey to identify people s perception in this regard. The monitoring, carried out during October-November 2016 when the heating did not work, was focused on: relative air temperature and humidity (Thermohygrometer data logger Klimalogg Pro), carbon dioxide (CO2) (Extech Instruments CO250 model automatic gas analyzer), air microflora investigation (Koch sedimentation method in accordance with applicable standards). Monitoring results showed: an optimal level of temperature and humidity, so that sports competitions can be carried out at a good level, and a small to medium level of microbial contamination. The sociological survey showed that only a small percentage of respondents identified negative aspects of indoor air quality or had negative physical symptoms related to poor indoor air exposure.
