air conditioning reduces indoor air pollution

Imagine being in your home in the heat and humidity with no way to cool yourself off.  Enter air conditioning! Having an air conditioner is a great way to keep your house cool, but there are also many other benefits. Here are a few reasons you need air conditioning in your home:


  • Air Quality– Having an air conditioner can improve the quality of air in your home. It helps filter and circulate air as well as filter out poor-quality air such as allergens and pollutants.  On a day where the outdoor air quality is poor, air conditioning reduces indoor air pollution.
  • Cool Air– Another benefit of having air conditioning in your home is a very obvious one– it helps cool the temperature!  There is nothing more miserable than sweating in your own home, being uncomfortable, not being able to get a good night’s rest and feeling sluggish, all due to the fact that it is too hot for your comfort level.  You can control the temperature and lower it a few degrees or lower it quite a bit on a hot summer day.
     
  • Furniture will Last Longer– Furniture that is built with wood will change with temperature.  When it gets to hot or too cold, the wood expands and retracts and can eventually permanently change its shape, become warped and even start to bow if you don’t regulate the temperature of your home. 
  • Avoid Extreme Temperatures– Whether hot or cold, extreme temperatures are not good for your body, physically or mentally.  Keeping your home at a moderate to cool temperature will increase brain activity, improve your comfort level and improve your job performance.
