Debating whether or not to get air conditioning in your property - you're not alone. With a hotter climate, record breaking summers and a desire to regulate temperature more efficiently, more and more people are turning to air conditioning. But why should you consider it for your home? We outline a handful of reasons below...
Reason 1 - Comfort
Our bodies are designed to keep our vital organs regulated to the perfect temperature, adapting as best it can to the hot and cold - but our bodies can only do so much. With air conditioning, you can control the temperature of your home to provide maximise comfort, all year round.
Reason 2 - Improved air quality
Air conditioners don't just cool or hear the air, it filters it too, removing pollutants from the air that you breathe. This is particularly relevant to those who suffer from breathing issues, or allergies, such as asthma. Cleaner air could help reduce these health problems.
Reason 3 - Keep out bugs and insects
We've all been there - it's late at night and you're in bed in the midst of summer, and every insect known to man has decided your open window is the perfect invitation. So you're stuck between an uncomfortable night's sleep, or the risk of being woken by moths, flies, spiders and the like. With air conditioning you can keep your room cool and your windows closed.
Reason 4 - Prevent heat-related deaths
Believe it or not, heat is quickly becoming a contributing factor to the growing number of home-related deaths in the UK. This is often attributed to poor climate control or the lack of a proper air conditioning system.
Reason 5 - Better sleep quality
Sleep is so important - it plays a pivotal role in our health, weight and wellbeing. When people are asked why they struggled to fall asleep or had a restless night, it's fairly common for temperature to come-up, particularly in the warmer summer months. An air conditioning system will help to properly regulate the temperature in your home, giving you a better quality of sleep.
Reason 6 - Increased security
It may sound silly but for some, the solution to an overly warm home is to open a door or crack open a window. Not only does this let in unwanted insects or bugs, and polluted air or allergens, but unwanted people too. More and more burglaries in homes are being conducted by 'chancers' who see an open door and take advantage. With air conditioning you can keep your windows and doors locked at all times.
Reason 7 - Protect furniture and equipment
Believe it or not, air conditioners reduce the humidity of one's home, which can help to prolong the lifespan of woods, preventing distortion and rot, and protect your fabrics from moisture-related mould. It's not just your furniture that can be protected from air conditioning, many electronic devices perform better in cooler climates too.
Reason 8 - Reduce risk of dehydration
When temperatures get too high, our body reacts by sweating to try and cool us down. Sweating too much reduces the amount of water in the body and can lead to dehydration. Keeping your home cool could in turn keep you healthy.
