While we are currently experiencing the coldest weather of the year, summer is right around the corner and it is important to make sure you are ready for it!
With our climates changing and weather extremes becoming more common here in the PNW, now is the perfect time to invest in an air conditioning system to avoid being stuck in extreme heat this summer. Here are five reasons why air conditioning is a good investment for your home.
Improve Your Air Quality with AC
Air conditioning (AC) systems effectively filter the air in your home, helping to minimize pollutants and allergens such as mold from the air. To get the best air quality possible, it is important to keep your AC filters clean and in working order.
As smoke from forest fires become an increasing reality in the summer, a good AC system is a necessity, even in the temperate climate of Washington. By adding AC, you can help make your home a refuge from the poor air quality outside.
Creating a Calm Environment
When our bodies experience high temperatures, this can cause our heart rate and blood pressure to rise, leading to higher stress levels and more aggressive behavior. By staying in a cool environment, you and your family are able to remain in a calm, more relaxed state.
It’s just all-around easier to be comfortable and relaxed when the temperature is at a comfortable level.
AC systems help minimize humidity within your home, which is important for your overall health. Excess humidity can have lasting negative effects on our bodies, homes, and belongings. The excess moisture in the air can cause toxic chemicals from your furniture and belongings to seep into the air, causing damage to your items and potentially being harmful to your health.
Additionally, high levels of humidity can lead to an increase in dirt and allergens in the air, compromising your immune system and aggravating respiratory issues.
Better Sleep Quality
It’s no secret that it can be hard to get a good night’s sleep when you’re in a warm, stuffy room.
Your core body temperature is an important factor in your sleep quality, and being in too warm of an environment can have a large negative impact on your ability to sleep. Having a temperature controlled space thanks to well-functioning air conditioning can create the optimal environment to help you sleep.
Better Home Security
During the warm weather months, break-ins and other home security concerns are on the rise because homes are often left more vulnerable due to open windows and doors for ventilation. With well-functioning air conditioning, you can keep cool with your doors and windows closed, making your home feel more secure.
