Air conditioners are known to help you regulate room temperature inside a building. They are also great at maintaining humidity levels and can help reduce airborne pollutants and allergens. Indoor air quality can directly impact your health, especially if you suffer from allergies or have other underlying respiratory conditions. That is why it is important to look after your indoor air quality, whether at home or place of work. Air conditioning can help with allergies caused by indoor pollutants and is one of the most effective ways to improve your indoor air quality.
Common Indoor Allergens
The type and number of indoor allergens in your home or place of business will depend on a few factors. This includes the humidity levels, whether there is adequate ventilation, whether you own any pets, and how often the space gets cleaned. Some common indoor allergens include:
- Dust mites
- Pet hairs
- Household chemicals
Signs and Symptoms of Allergens In Your Indoor Air
These allergens are common in indoor spaces and are harmless to anyone who is not allergic. Some common symptoms of an allergic reaction include:
- Runny or blocked nose
- Red and/or watery eyes
- Itchy rash
How Air Conditioning Help Allergies
Air conditioners are great at improving indoor air quality. They remove pollutants and allergens such as dust and pollen from the air through their filtering system. The addition of cool air will also help soothe your sinuses, alleviating your allergy symptoms. Additionally, high humidity levels can increase the risk of dust mites and mold growth. Keeping humidity levels below 50% can drastically help reduce allergy triggers.
The Importance Of Air Conditioning Maintenance
Regular air conditioning maintenance is highly recommended in order to keep your unit running at maximum capacity. It is important that the unit is cleaned and the filters are replaced on a regular basis. Neglecting to do so will cause the filters to get blocked and will therefore circulate the dust, hair, and other allergens back into the air.
