I remember consistently feeling uncomfortable in our house when I was growing up.
The two of us lived right on a swamp plus the air was humid inside plus out.
As a kid with a host of odd respiratory allergies, I often struggled to breathe in that house both through our nose plus through our mouth. The two of us didn’t have air conditioner plus only relied on fans plus open windows even when the temperature outside climbed into the 100s. I remember dripping with sweat in our room plus struggling to breathe because the heat plus humidity would cause mold to grow in the house. The air quality inside our family apartment was horrendous in retrospect. Nowadays I go to good lengths to ensure that our air quality is as good as I can make it with our limited financial resources. I not only use our air conditioner year round, but I also have a dehumidifier plus an UV air purifier. This prevents too much humidity from accumulating plus from airborne contaminants from building plus threatening our respiratory health. Beyond that, I get sizzling definitely so I’m using our air conditioner consistently. If I was asked to quantify the number of times I run the air conditioner throughout the year, I would be at a loss for words. It’s such an integral section of our life that I cannot even imagine living without 1 at this point. Needless to say, I’m a huge proponent of most people using indoor climate control, even if it’s just heating or cooling systems that provide air ventilation to an indoor space. That goes a long way towards benefitting respiratory health.
