While the summer may be over and the need for a cooler space out of the hot sun may not feel as necessary, the benefits of air conditioning stretch far beyond just cooling down a space. Air conditioning units have a large number of benefits, with cooling being just one! For starters, an air conditioning unit will also provide heat, so it may be ideal for this time of year when it’s not quite cold enough to turn on the central heating but still too chilly not to have some warmth. In fact, an increasing number of people are using their air conditioning units all year round – to meet both their heating and cooling needs. But what are the other benefits of having an air-conditioned home or office space? We explore them in a little more depth this month.
For best performance from an air conditioner you need to have doors and windows closed. This gives you an automatic layer of added security when they are locked, preventing anyone from trying to break into your home or office.
Keeping doors and windows closed and utilising your air conditioning unit will ensure that the filters keep out any dust, mites, pollen and other allergens. In turn, this reduces the effects for hay fever sufferers and can reduce the number of asthma attacks. With regular checks and cleaning of your unit’s filters you can create a much cleaner environment at an affordable cost.
Fewer insects and parasites
Your unit’s filters don’t only make life easier for you. They work just as well for your pets too, by keeping out insects and parasites that can otherwise make them miserable and even carry disease.
Closed doors and windows will also keep noise levels down – making life better whether you are working, relaxing or trying to get a good night’s sleep.
Improves sleep and performance
Whether you are working or sleeping, there is an optimum temperature and humidity level that will bring out the best in your performance or allow you to sleep peacefully. A comfortable temperature in a work environment has been shown to improve performance as you are less focused on looking for ways to cool down or stay warm and can concentrate on the task at hand instead. If you use lots of electronics in your home or office they are vulnerable to overheating, and air conditioning can help to reduce that risk significantly.
Similarly, when it comes to a good night’s sleep, a cool room is better to help you nod off, and stay asleep, than a hot or cold one.
More likely to exercise
We all know that daily exercise is good for us, but not everyone has the time or money to join a gym. If it’s too hot you don’t feel like working out at home and if it’s too cold you just want to curl up under the duvet with a hot drink – neither of which are helping you to stay fit.
