The Benefits of Air Conditioning Systems

Air conditioning is what makes the summer months in Texas tolerable. We rely on air conditioners to cool the air and reduce the humidity to make our homes, offices, and schools a comfortable environment to work in. Although some people worry that air conditioners use a lot of energy, there are many benefits of air conditioning systems that make this appliance a necessity in Texas. If your air conditioner isn’t providing the relief you need this summer, call Radiant Plumbing and Air right away to stay cool and comfortable.

The Benefits of Air Conditioning

It’s hard to find a building in Texas that doesn’t have an air conditioning system. The benefits of a central air conditioning system range from improving our health to improving our productivity. Air conditioning isn’t just beneficial for people either.

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Air conditioners don’t just cool the air; they also filter it. The outside air is filled with allergens and pollutants that could enter your home if you leave your doors and windows open. With an A/C unit running, these pollutants will be filtered out through your HVAC system before the cool air blows out of your registers. This creates better air quality and a healthier environment, especially for those who suffer from asthma attacks and allergies. The Environmental Protection Agency recommends that schools should use air conditioning systems to improve indoor air quality.

Reduced Asthma and Allergy Symptoms

An A/C system helps filter out the air we breathe. The best benefit of a good air conditioning system is that it removes allergens like dust and pollen from the air. Air conditioners also remove humidity from the air, which prevents the growth of mold and mildew. Paired with an air cleaner, your air conditioning system could remove viruses and bacteria too.

Dehydration and Heatstroke Prevention

When your body gets too hot for a long period of time, you could experience heat stroke. This commonly happens when you perform a strenuous activity in a hot environment for a long period of time. The very old and the very young are more susceptible to heatstroke. That’s why it’s very important that preschools, nursing homes, churches, and hospitals are equipped with AC systems.

Improves Job Performance

past study found that productivity dropped by 2-4% when the temperature rose above 78° because people tire faster when it’s hot. It doesn’t matter if your work is physically strenuous or mentally strenuous; when it’s hot, you’re less likely to maintain focus and tire easily.

Creates a Comfortable Climate for Exercising

In the summer months, the warm weather and cloudless skies make it tempting to go outside and exercise. But because we tire so fast in the heat, exercising in the heat can cause heatstroke. Air conditioning in homes and gyms is great because you can still improve your health without being exposed to high temperatures.

Fewer Insects and Parasites

Opening doors and windows to let in a cool breeze might feel nice, but you’re also opening your home to bugs and pests from outside. Parasites like fleas are more likely to enter your home if you don’t have air conditioning.
