Having a good HVAC is important for good health

Did you know that having a/c in your home can improve your overall health? Of course fresh air is the healthiest air to breathe, but it is not always possible to open the windows in the heat and humidity of the summer months.

The first way that a/c can improve your health is by reducing the amount of stress you experience at home. When you get warm, you can become miserable and uncomfortable. Being warm is no fun when you are trying to relax at home, trying to sleep, or trying to eat. When you are tied up from being too hot, your blood pressure can increase which is genuinely not a good feeling. Air conditioning can help by keeping you nice and cool, decreasing your blood pressure, and can make you feel more relaxed in your home! Having a/c in your home can also help prevent you from getting sick. When you have chronic stress in your life, your immune system suffers. This is due to stress hormones being released in your body which are not wonderful for your immune system, but since a/c reduces the amount of stress in your life, it can help your immune system strengthen which will help keep nasty viruses and bacterial infections at bay! Air conditioning can also help depression. When you are warm, you often feel lazy and lethargic which are usual symptoms of depression. When you are comfortable with the temperature in your home, you are more likely to be energized and motivated. One of the most important ways a/c helps your health is sleep. The majority of people sleep way better when their bedroom is air conditioned properly.
