Summer Seasonal Impacts on Your Air Quality

Summer’s longer days and luxurious sunlight make the season a joy for your senses, but it sure is tough on indoor air quality. Summer can make air pollution issues worse, cause ozone warnings or just make the air humid and stifling. Here’s a look at just some of the ways the warmest season of the year is trying to ruin the air inside your home or business.

Dander and More

If your family includes the four-legged type, you’ve already got more to deal with than the non-pet-homeowner. But factor this in – the grass is green, flowers are in bloom, pollen is everywhere, and your indoor-outdoor pets are bringing it all inside. Mosquitoes and other bugs don’t leave dogs alone in summer any more than they do you, and the extra scratching your poor pup or cat is doing means a lot more dander – dead skin cells – in your indoor air as well.

High Humidity

Heat and humidity together can fell the hardiest sort, but that’s not all. Humidity in the home can trigger the growth of mold and dust mites, especially in places that are often moist, like a bathroom or kitchen. Left unchecked, mold can cause respiratory infections and worse, which is why removing the excess moisture indoors should be managed with a dehumidifier system.

Airborne Irritants

Local industrial pollution, indigenous plants and trees and other factors also have a substantial impact on your home’s indoor air quality, but the impact is greatest in summer, when doors and windows are open to catch the breeze. Once you close them up again, however, the irritants are trapped in your home.

All of this pet dander, mold, dust mites, bacteria, pollen, pollutants and more are almost assuredly being passed through your air ducts and circulating throughout your property. This means that the air you’re breathing isn’t what you want to be breathing. Cooler days are coming, and you’ll be breathing your indoor air for many months to come.
