I remember always feeling uncomfortable in our house when I was growing up.
Both of us lived right on a swamp and the air was humid inside and out.
As a kid with a host of different respiratory flu symptoms, I often struggled to breathe in that house both through my nose and through my mouth. Both of us didn’t have air conditioning and only relied on fans and open windows even when the temperature outside climbed into the 100s. I remember dripping with sweat in my room and struggling to breathe because the heat and humidity would cause mold to grow in the house. The air quality inside my family home was horrendous in retrospect. Nowadays I go to great lengths to ensure that my air quality is as nice as I can make it with my limited financial resources. I not only use my air conditioning year round, although I also have a dehumidifier and an air purification system. This prevents too much humidity from accumulating and from airborne contaminants from building and threatening my respiratory health. Beyond that, I get sizzling unquestionably so I’m using my air conditioning always. If I was asked to quantify the number of times I run the air conditioning throughout the year, I would be at a loss for words. It’s such an integral section of my life that I cannot even imagine residing without 1 at this point. Needless to say, I’m a immense proponent of everyone using indoor weather conditions control, even if it’s just heating or cooling systems that supply air ventilation to an indoor space. That goes a long way towards benefitting respiratory health.
