    How Does Summer Affect Indoor Air Quality?

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Summertime in Maryland is associated with high temperatures and high humidity. Increased indoor humidity can lead to the prevalence of mold, mildew, dust mites, and many other health concerns. Turning on your air conditioning and using an indoor air quality appliance during the summer months can help keep your home cooler, more comfortable, and healthier for your family. 

    Pollen

    Spring and summer are often considered “allergy season” because many plants are blooming, causing the release of pollen into the air. Pollen can enter your home in a variety of ways, either through open doors or windows or when it is tracked inside on clothing, shoes, or pets. You can reduce the levels of pollen in your home by keeping your windows and doors closed and using your air conditioning instead, especially on days when the pollen count is high.

    Dust Mites

    Dust mites love conditions that are hot and humid. These tiny insects cause allergies and asthma symptoms in up to 10% of the population, making them a significant summertime indoor air concern. Vacuuming regularly to remove dust from your home can reduce the numbers of dust mites present. Use allergy-proof covers on mattresses and pillows to further improve indoor comfort. Changing your furnace filter regularly with a high-quality HVAC filter will also reduce the amount of dust—and dust mites—in your home.

    Indoor Chemicals

    The prevalence of insects during the summer oftentimes means more pests are found in the home. However, the use of many insecticides and chemicals to kill insects can contribute to poor indoor air quality. Many insecticides contain chemicals called pyrethrins, which may cause headaches, nausea, and even asthma attacks. Handle insects without the use of chemicals to maintain cleaner indoor air.  

    At SMO Energy, we are dedicated to providing service with a smile. If you’d like to learn more about improving your indoor air quality, call (888) 222-3720 to speak with a representative about the indoor air quality products we offer, including air purification systems, UV lights, media filters, and more. You can find out more about heating, cooling, and air filtration on our blog.

    Signs of Dust Mite Allergies

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Dust mites are microscopic insects that frequently cause allergic reactions in humans. These insects thrive in warm, humid conditions and are most prevalent in the environment during Maryland summers.

    This video discusses the signs and symptoms of dust mite allergies. Symptoms include sneezing, congestion, and itchy skin. If you suffer from asthma, you may also experience a worsening of asthma symptoms or increase in asthma attacks due to dust mites. 

    Dust mite allergy symptoms can be prevented during the summer by closing your windows and running your air conditioner to cool and dehumidify your home. Whole-home dehumidifiers can help you maintain the perfect level of moisture; one in which dust mites are unable to survive. Also, air purifiers can remove up to 94% of respirable dust.

    SMO Energy offers a variety of comfort systems and indoor air quality solutions, including air conditioner installation and air conditioner maintenance in Maryland. Please visit us on the web or call (888) 222-3720 to learn more about how our services can improve your comfort all year long.

    A Closer Look at SMO's Service Agreements
