“You have to be a bit of a detective and look at all the parameters because there are lots of things that contribute to healthy indoor air,” says Dr. McKeon. While winter brings its own host of indoor air quality issues, summer indoor air quality issues may be impacting your well-being. “Anything from the environment you live in, to your air conditioner could be making your air dry.”
Cooling the air inside your home isn’t the only thing you should consider this summer. As you turn on your fans and blast your air conditioners, you’ll need to keep your summer indoor air quality top of mind, says John McKeon, MD, CEO of Allergy Standards, a company that certifies home goods and appliances as allergy and asthma friendly for the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).
