6 Surprising Benefits of Air Conditioning

Here in Gainesville, we know the biggest benefit of air conditioning — a cool home in the sweltering Florida summer! But there are plenty of other benefits you may not have thought of. In today’s blog, we’ll be sharing a few of those unexpected benefits.

Reduce Asthma Attacks

Did you know that a high-quality air conditioning system can help reduce the chances that you or your loved ones will have an asthma attack? Humidity can exacerbate asthma, and AC does a great job of reducing that irritant. Air conditioning also lowers the amount of pollen, mold, mildew, and other outdoor allergens, all of which can lead to asthma symptoms. It also lowers your exposure to indoor allergens as well, such as dust mites. Be sure to schedule regular AC maintenance and air conditioning repair though, because changing the air filters is important to ensuring clean, cool air. 

Increased Security

When you’re running your air conditioner, you need to have your windows and doors closed to keep that cool air in. This makes it much more difficult for someone to break into your home as they’ll need to either open or break the windows rather than just cutting a screen door.

Better Sleep

It’s not only easier to fall asleep in a cool environment, you also get better, deeper sleep. Air conditioning is the perfect way to keep your bedroom cool.

Better Working Environment

With the coronavirus pandemic, many more people are working from home. If you don’t have air conditioning, it can be extremely hard to work comfortably. AC also keeps your mind clear and focused on the task at hand rather than the sweat dripping down your back.

Reduces Dehydration and Risk of Heat Stroke

This is a very important health benefit, especially for seniors. Air conditioning is the number one way to protect against heat-related illness and death. Lower temperatures means less sweating, which means better hydration and less of a risk of overheating and hurting yourself. 

Quieter Home

If you can keep your doors and windows closed, less noise will enter your home. That means you can muffle the sound of the neighbor’s dog barking or the construction happening around the corner. Not only will your space be cool and comfortable, but you’ll also be able to experience peace and quiet!
