Once summer is in full swing, cooling system repairs and maintenance will become a major inconvenience, not to mention costly. Cleaning and repairing your system before it breaks will save you money and give you peace of mind. Here are the six (6) importance of air conditioning service before summer.
- It’s a life saver
Many more deaths have heat as a contributing factor, but not the main cause. Warm temperature extremes have direct impact on health by compromising the body’s ability to regulate its internal temperature. Loss of internal temperature control can result in a cascade of health effects, including heat cramps, heat exhaustion, heatstroke, hyperthermia, respiratory problems, or mortality. The impacts of extreme heat events disproportionately affect the health of certain sub-populations. Keeping cool with an efficient air conditioner is the best means of preventing heat-related deaths and illnesses, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
- Better air quality
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Poor IAQ can have serious repercussions on an individual’s health. Children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are particularly susceptible to pollutant exposure. Air conditioners circulate and filter air, removing pollutants and mold from the air. This is especially important for people who suffer from allergies and asthma because it minimizes the irritants that trigger an attack. This only hold true, however, if your system’s filters are regularly changed. Otherwise, the AC can actually contribute to indoor air pollution.
- Consistent Cooling
It’s always irritating during summer when your home is cool one moment and heating up the next or if one room is like an icebox, but another room is like a sauna. Uneven cooling is one of the unpleasant side effects of a poorly maintained AC. When functioning well, your air conditioner should be able to reliably maintain the ideal temperature in all of the rooms in your house. Air conditioning before summer will keep your home cool all summer.
- Better Sleep
When the summer season begins, also begins the time of rest and enjoyment. However, on these dates, it may be difficult to sleep at night due to high temperatures, which can cause fatigue and prevent you from resting properly. We actually sleep better in colder conditions and air conditioning is the perfect answer to that! We’ve learned previously that there are many tips to sleep better, one of which is keeping your bedroom cool.
- Better Living
Maintaining a room with cool air makes for a happier home. Instead of complaining about how hot it is, you can take time to appreciate whatever you’re doing indoors and enjoy quality time with your family.
