Central Air is a Healthy Choice
Remember what you said the first time your office purchased a fax machine or word processor or desktop computer? “How did we ever live without this,” right?
Well, people still say that right after they have their first central air conditioning system installed. And that’s just because of the cool, comfortable air – with less humidity than what they were used to.
That’s all good, and so are the numerous other benefits of central air. Here are several worth noting:
- Asthma Relief
Your AC filter can remove dust mites, pollutants, allergens, mold and other asthma triggers. But it can’t do it alone. Filters need to be cleaned and replaced regularly, so be sure to put that on your “to-do” list.
- Reduced risk of dehydration & heat stroke
Dehydration is caused by lack of water, as you know. But did you also know that the more you sweat, the more water your body loses? Central air keeps sweat under control and helps protect you from heat stroke and dehydration.
- Keeps insects & parasites at bay
Little known but true – central air helps control the population of insects and parasites. These pesky critters aren’t only annoying to deal with but can transmit diseases. Here’s how AC systems accomplish that task:
- Insects prefer warmer temperatures
- They also like warm bodies
- By removing excess humidity from your home, you’re depriving insects of another atmospheric condition they thrive on
- Stress relief
If you’re active at home and don’t have central air, you’re bound to stress out from the added heat and humidity.
- Count sheep, not minutes
What’s worse than a nightmare? A hot, sweaty sleep. Tossing and turning in your bed, flipping your pillow, and feeling around for any sliver of cool freshness. When you’re not able to achieve REM sleep, the restlessness of the previous night will carry into your day and make you a grouchier version of yourself.
- Keeps your house smelling fresh and clean
Dirty air, excess humidity, expired milk, and a rank garbage disposal are just a few of the unpleasant odors that can assault your senses. Central air helps remove those odors but, once again, only if you keep up with cleaning the filter.
- Home, happier home
It’s not just you who will feel better with central air. That benefit carries over to every member of your family. And if one of you is happy – the happiness becomes contagious.
