5 Ways Great Air Conditioning Can Improve Your Life
- No more sweat stains!
Ok, we know it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that air conditioning makes you sweat less. Climate control has saved millions of people from embarrassing sweat stains and clingy clothes. Realistically, how annoying can sweat be though? According to deodorant producer Sweat Block, the average human sweats about 278 GALLONS each year and over 360 million people have overactive sweat glands. That’s quite a bit! It makes you wonder how much more sweat there would be without AC … let’s not think about that.
- Clear your skin!
Clear and healthy skin has always been in style. People spend hundreds on creams, serums, and other expensive concoctions, but ignore other factors that could be negatively affecting their skin! By choosing the wrong AC system, you can put yourself at risk of living in a moisture-free environment. This leads to dry skin, which can worsen conditions like eczema, rosacea, or psoriasis. Even if you don’t suffer from any of these conditions, dry air can cause skin to become off balance, causing it to itch and flake. The good news is that even though this problem is hard to detect, it is easy to fix! Using a humidifier will improve the indoor air quality of your home and ultimately improve the quality of your skin!
- Reduce unwanted bugs
Summertime means heat, and with that heat comes bugs. And we don’t like bugs. We’re guessing you don’t either, especially when they are sneaking into your home like James Bond on his tippy toes. Good news is, you can use your AC unit as your own personal bug destroying infantry! Creepy crawlies tend to be attracted to warm and moist climates. Keeping your AC unit set to 77 degrees or below can repel roaches and other pesky insects from your home. In addition, one of the simplest ways to keep bugs out is to keep windows and doors shut. Make sure you are comfortable with your AC so there is no chance of insects creeping in. With these easy tips, you should be well on your way to keeping bugs out of your home… and that’s definitely a good thing!
- Increases productivity
Do you know that feeling when it’s so hot that all you want to do is lie down and not move… at all? Yeah, we know that feeling, too. A study conducted by the Helsinki University of Technology found that productivity increases between the climate controlled temperatures of 69.8 and 71.6 degrees fahrenheit. More so, AC can actually save you MONEY! A Cornell study by professor Alan Hedge found that a more comfortable thermal zone saves employers about $2 per worker, per hour. That’s savings of $800 a week for a company of only 10 employees! Well, there you have it… AC can increase productivity AND save you money!
- Clean air
*Breathe in. Breathe out.* Chances are that if you are reading this in the comfort of your own air-conditioned home you just inhaled some premium, good ‘ol fashioned O₂. Good stuff, right? Well, there’s lots more where that came from – especially if you have an air scrubber with your AC unit. These powerful machines take all the pollen and pollutants out of the air to ensure you are breathing safe, clean air. Temperature is all-important when dealing with an AC system, but indoor air quality can make or break your environment. Nobody wants to breathe in musty air, and nobody should have to! Clean air can help with allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues, so crank the AC and breathe easy!
