Having an air conditioner is a must-have if you live in a hot place. I live in Manhattan, and let me tell you, summers here are like being in the pits of hell. It is so hot here that even the rats are too tired to do anything. So buying an air conditioner was one of the best things my roommate and I could do, and I’m so grateful to have one.
I grew up poor, and we didn’t have air conditioning at home, and now that I know what it’s like to have air conditioning, I could never go back. Without further ado, let’s dive into this blog and learn some of the advantages of owning an air conditioner in your home/apartment.
1. The air conditioner regulates the temperature
Having cool air constantly is the main function of the air conditioner. This appliance has long been known to keep room temperature in a home. During the summer, having an air conditioner becomes almost necessary when the heat is on. To promote a consistently pleasant atmosphere in the summer, the air conditioner conducts the excess heat inside a room outside. It then transports the fresh air drawn from the outside back inside. It is thanks to this air exchange system that air conditioning takes place.
2. The air conditioner optimizes the temperature
Air conditioners allow you to set the temperature of your choice in a room. However, experts suggest keeping a certain temperature difference between inside and outside, between 5°C and 8°C. This is to avoid the risk of thermal shock. Nowadays, you can find a reversible air conditioning system that sets an ideal temperature in summer and winter. This will allow you to save money during the coldest periods because you will not have to invest in a heater. There is also the multi-split system to equip all the rooms of a house. This last technology ensures the unification of the temperature inside a building.
3. The air conditioner improves air quality
The air conditioner has a hygrometric function. Indeed, it can determine the degree of humidity of the air in the sense that it can dehumidify it. An air too humid favors sanitary risks (diseases, virus propagation). An air conditioning system also ameliorates air flow throughout a room and your home.
It happens that when the human body feels too hot, it sweats to lower the temperature. Sweating is, therefore, a normal reaction of the human body to balance the temperature of its body during hot weather. However, air that is too humid would prevent this natural reaction. This is where the need for an air conditioner comes in, as the air conditioner will reduce the humidity level in the air.
4. Air conditioning keeps you healthy
The air conditioner offers a better quality of air. It removes dust and particles harmful to health through the filtration method. But be careful, for this function to be always possible, you must take care to maintain your air conditioner. I need my AC to have a proper night of sleep, especially in the summer, because the temperature in New York can be suffocating at times.
For this, do not hesitate to contact a specialist who is a leader in your area’s production, maintenance, and repair of air conditioners. Allergy sufferers and sensitive people will find it easy to install an air conditioner in their home, especially since newborns will be able to breathe fresh air in a room at room temperature at all times.
5. Optimal humidity in the home
In addition to the right temperature in the home, the right humidity is also important for indoor comfort. The ideal relative humidity is between 40% and 60%. Low relative humidity results in dry air in the house, which causes physical discomfort and can damage wooden furniture, for example. High relative humidity makes the house feel moist and warm. A humid environment also increases the risk of mold.
Air conditioning allows you to control your home’s temperature and relative humidity. The constant air temperature from an air conditioner makes staying in a room comfortable. Many people don’t know that humidity is at least as important. Our bodies dissipate heat by sweating. The air absorbs moisture particles in the room you are in.
Air conditioning prevents the feeling of lack of air. Without air conditioning, the air in the room quickly becomes saturated, and the body has difficulty dissipating heat. Air conditioning not only cools the air on hot days but also removes moisture from the air, creating a pleasant indoor climate.
