Abstract

The indoor and outdoor air quality at four residential buildings in Shah Alam, Selangor was investigated. The concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), and particulate matters (PM10) in outdoor and indoor of the houses were determined for 8 hour period. The mean concentration of CO, CO2 and PM10 indoor was in the range 0.24 - 0.31 ppm, 437.18 - 549.57 ppm and 94.00 - 124.00 μg/m3 respectively. The results indicated that all of the average indoor concentrations of CO, CO2, and PM10 were below the limit of Malaysian guideline standards. The indoor/outdoor concentration ratios of all air pollutants were found to be below one, except for CO2 which seems to be affected by outdoor sources of origin.
