Understanding the Wifi radio spectrum and having visbility into underlying signalling can assist greatly in maintaining cleaner air and identifying sources of interference.

Network Computing discusses how Wifi spectrum analysis can be used to help maximize the performance of wireless networking infrastructure.

One of the key steps that a WLAN engineer can take to improve WiFi performance is to conduct spectrum analysis, which is a method for visualizing the radio frequency in a surveyed area and determining the strength of a signal. In addition to seeing that strength, a spectrum analyzer can find interference that would negatively impact wireless performance.
