With the summer heat beating down on Texas, locals are relying on their air conditioners to stay cool. But did you know there are other benefits to central air conditioning than just maintaining a comfortable temperature in your home? Check out the 3 reasons a new HVAC system is good for your health!
A new HVAC system can make a major difference in your health. It creates a clean and healthy environment, especially when it comes to dealing with issues like allergies and other respiratory conditions! Even those in good health can be susceptible to invisible airborne germs and toxins. A well-maintained central air conditioner can play an important role in helping you achieve the following health benefits:
There are always particles in the air, but in an enclosed space like your home, these particles become more concentrated – causing problems for individuals with asthma or other respiratory conditions. To improve the air quality, replace your air filters regularly, making sure that you are using the correct filter for your system. A fully functioning HVAC system will efficiently remove contaminants and pollutants that may cause flare-ups in those with respiratory conditions.
A bad smell is unpleasant enough, but it’s often a sign of a more serious problem or generally poor air quality. Stagnant air and other gases can have a negative effect on your health if they’re not removed from your home. An efficient air conditioning system should eliminate the vast majority of fumes/odors as long as it’s running at full capacity!
Your system helps you do more than just cool off after a hot Texas day! By setting your air conditioner at night between 70-74º F you are more likely to get a better night’s sleep. Sleeping at a temperature within this range eliminates the need for your body to regulate its own temperature as the air in the room is already cool. Keeping the room too hot or too cold will force your body to stay partially awake trying to adjust itself. Sleep soundly with the right temperature!
