We are all striving for a safe and healthy lifestyle, especially during times of pandemic viruses and flu seasons. One way to provide for a healthy life is to ensure your home’s air is clean. There are many great health benefits of clean air in your home, keeping it free of pollutants and germs that will live happily in your system but are not healthy for you or your family.
Here are just a few of the health benefits obtained from a well-maintained air conditioner.
1. Reduce Humidity
Living in a house with air conditioning prevents high humidity and creates a less damp home by keeping the air clean, as well as keeping you healthy. High humidity is the perfect environment for dust mites, mould, heatstroke and dehydration.
2. Reduce Asthma Attacks
For those who have asthma, did you know that air conditioning reduces the chances of asthma attacks? It does this by filtering dirty air that may contain pollen, mould, mildew and other airborne allergens that can lead to asthma symptoms.
Neglecting to change air filters to keep your home’s air clean means that dirt is cycling through your air conditioner back into your home. This means more dust that can be a trigger for asthmatics.
3. Better Air Quality
Air quality is vital for good health. Dust and bacteria can become a hazard to your health, thanks to improper ventilation and overheating. You can develop coughs, colds, headaches and fatigue.
Breathe easy knowing that an air-conditioner with a sound filter system will improve the quality of your air.
4. Reduce the Risk of Dehydration & Heat Stroke
Air-conditioning is a lifesaver during our hot Perth summers. Excessive sweat removes water from your body, and if you are not keeping cool and hydrated, you become more likely to suffer from dehydration.
Having lower temperatures indoors also reduces the risk of heat stroke, which occurs when your body begins to overheat.
5. Stop Insects & Parasites
Keep the mosquitos, flies, ants and fleas out with your air conditioner.
Air conditioning filters are more effective in keeping bugs out than an open window. A few ways to stop insects and parasites are:
- Create an atmosphere that isn’t desirable to insects.
- Cool your body temperature to make you less desirable for mosquitos, who enjoy warm bodies.
- Keep your doors and windows closed with air conditioning and keep the bugs out.
6. Decrease Stress
When you’re not able to achieve REM sleep, the restlessness of the previous night will carry into your day and cause you to be more tired, extended periods of sleepless nights can cause significant stress.
A common cause is a bedroom that is too hot or too cold and stops you from getting the sleep you need. The best way to maintain good sleep is by owning an air conditioner.
7. Odours & Fumes
Whether it’s cooking fumes, cleaning chemicals, or expired food, air conditioning helps keep those odours and fumes at bay. By cycling out the stinky air with clean air, you’re destroying any smells or chemicals that can affect your health.
8. A More Secure and Quieter Home
Typically when we air condition our homes, we keep our windows and doors closed, adding security and less noise. It is much harder for someone to break in your home with your doors and windows closed and locked than having them open to cool your home.
Our prescribed remedy for a healthier house is a well-maintained air conditioner. The benefits of having your air conditioner serviced regularly will give you peace of mind and wellness.
