Having a clean, functional, and efficient air conditioning system makes the quality of living better due to better comfort levels, but did you know an air conditioner is good for your health? Here are a few health benefits of having a good quality air conditioner in your home or business:
Those with respiratory diseases such as asthma can benefit from the cool clean air coming from an air conditioner because it reduces dusts, pollen, and dust mites. Allergens in the home or workplace can trigger an asthma flare up or asthma attack resulting in problems breathing or if severe a trip to the hospital. Asthma isn’t the only respiratory disease that will benefit from a clean and efficient air conditioning system. Those who have emphysema, lung cancer, or COPD can greatly benefit from the clean cool air circulating in their home. Hot, humid, damp, and moldy air will just negatively effect those with respiratory conditions, from having a harder time breathing to making their health condition worst. The key is to make sure the AC filters are often cleaned to reduce allergens and the system is regularly checked and maintained.
Mold and Bacteria
Mold and bacteria tend to grow more in damp humid environments, which is why you see a lot of mold in older homes where there is little air circulation. Whether your home is older or new, maintaining your home’s air temperature is imperative to keep mold growth at bay. Exposure to mold can cause stuffiness, throat irritation, skin irritation, wheezing, and skin irritation. Here is how to keep mold out of your home:
- Good air circulation
- Good ventilation
- Low humidity
- Clean Cool Air
- Dry up any drips, leaks, or spills
Having a good cooling system is essential to reduce bacteria and mold growth.
A low body temperature will not only drain you of your energy, but it can also cause dehydration and trigger a heat stroke. Your immune system can be affected negatively if your body temperature is constantly changing which can put you at a higher risk of coming down with an illness.
Your quality of living is influenced by your environment. If you feel comfortable in your home or work you will tend to be more positive, productive, and healthier. You are able to do what you enjoy more comfortably like watching television, reading a book, cooking, online shopping, watching Netflix, and spending time with your loved ones. Having a good air conditioning system in your home will help positively affect you from the inside out.
