Frederick, MD Heating Tip: Maintain Indoor Air Quality This Winter

Would you like to know more about how to maintain indoor air quality in your Frederick, MD area home this winter? The indoor air quality experts at Larry & Sons are here to help. Whether you are interested in a whole-home humidifier or an air cleaner, we can help maintain moisture control and reduce the symptoms related to dry air and allergies.

One of the advantages to installing a whole-home humidifier is that it can be installed to work with your heating system to provide much better results than simply installing a few room humidifiers. In addition to dry skin and sinus issues, air that is too dry can also damage home furnishings and wood flooring inside your home.

Another added benefit of a whole-house humidifier is that it won’t add too much moisture to the air. Room humidifiers are not equipped to do this and may add too much moisture, which can encourage mold growth and other issues.

If you are interested in an air cleaner, call us any time. We can go over the different types of mechanical and electronic air cleaners and the pollutants that each type can target. Most heating systems are not designed to work with a true HEPA filter, so installing an air cleaner is the only way to get the benefit of a high-efficiency filter.

Call the Frederick, MD heating experts at Larry & Sons to learn more about how to maintain indoor air quality with a whole-house humidifier or an air cleaner installation.

Frederick Air Quality Tip: Humidity Levels and Asthma and Allergies

Do you have terrible seasonal allergies or suffer from asthma in Frederick? While these reactions can often not be helped and are caused by seasonal changes, there are some things that you can do in your home to reduce the symptoms. In this blog post we’re going to explore the relationship between humidity levels in your home and asthma and allergies.

Benefits Dry Air

Drying out the air in your home has a number of benefits for people with allergies. However, air that is too dry can also have a negative impact on people who suffer from allergies and asthma. Here are some of the benefits of dry air:

  • Dry air can reduce the amount of dust mites and cockroaches (both common allergy triggers)
  • Dry air reduces mold growth. Mold breeds by releasing spores into the air. When the spores land on something that is wet, they start to grow more mold. These spores are so small that they can actually be inhaled by humans. Some people have reactions to these mold spores.

Benefits of Moist Air

On the flip side of humidity in your home, adding more moisture to the air actually does have some benefits. Here are a few of them:

  • When the air gets too dry, it can dry out your nasal passages and throat. This can cause irritation in some people who have asthma or allergies.
  • In dry conditions, the droppings from dust mites and cockroaches can dry out and become airborne. These are obviously huge irritants for people with allergies.
  • Because dust is primarily made of dead skin, pet dander is much more common in dry conditions that cause skin  to dry out and flake.

Too Much Moisture

But if you add too much moisture, you can risk encouraging the growth of molds. That’s why a humidity control system is a great idea to help control the moisture levels in your home’s air.
