When you think of reasons to purchase air conditioning, you probably think of cooling your home, but Air Conditioner Calgary wants you to understand the many benefits, which range from a healthier home to a healthier you. Installing central air conditioning improves humidity conditions, productivity, sleep and filters allergens and dirt from the air.
A Less Humid Interior
As temperatures rise outdoors, they do so indoors as well. Indoors though, we run the oven, kitchen sink, dishwasher, washing machine, and shower or take a bath. All of this throws off the humidity inside. Installing air conditioning helps control the humidity in your home. Most HVAC systems come with a humidity setting, so you can keep your home at an optimal 30 and 50 percent relative humidity. At 55 percent humidity and above, conditions become optimal for mold growth, causing a health danger.
Productivity Improves as Temperatures Cool
While many offices try to set their thermostats at a frigid 68 degrees Fahrenheit, the ideal temperature for productivity ranges between 72 and 76 degrees Fahrenheit. A Cornell University study found that employees in an air-conditioned office of 68 degrees only typed 54 percent of the time with a 25 percent error rate, but at 77 degrees, the employees typed 100 percent of the time with only a 10 percent error rate.
You Can Sleep Better
Similar to improving productivity, a comfortable temperature also improves sleep. Despite how drowsy we typically get on hot days, a more moderate temperature provides a better sleep environment. You’re less likely to wake up in a room that maintains a constant comfortable temperature.
AC Vents Filter Allergens
When the air conditioning unit pulls air in from outside, it travels through a filter that captures small particles from pollen, pollution, etc. When you open your home’s windows to allow in a breeze, you don’t obtain this filtering. The allergens blow right into your home with cooler air. Setting a box fan in a window also fails to filter air. Only an air conditioning unit can provide the filtering needed.
AC Vents Stop Dirt from Entering the Home
The same air filtering that keeps your home free of allergens also helps you keep it cleaner. Since you no longer need to open your windows, you can enjoy the cool air without the wind blowing dirt and grime into your home. Try this experiment to see what we mean. Clean the window sills in your room facing the direction the wind comes from that day. Open the windows after the sill cleaning. Come back to close them before going to bed that night and observe how dirty the sill became. That’s the dirt getting into your home every time you use the windows to ventilate instead of the air conditioning. That dirt damages your carpeting, flooring, furniture, bedding, etc.
