It’s summertime, and that means outdoor barbecues, days spent at the pool, and holiday fireworks. It also means cranking up your air conditioning to beat the heat. Staying cool and comfortable no matter how hot it gets outside is the obvious benefit of a central air system, but did you know that it’s also good for your health, especially if you have asthma. Read on to find out how you can improve your home by installing central air conditioning:
Improve Air Quality: The average person spends the majority of their time indoors, where he or she is susceptible to a variety of pollutants including mold and fungus spores, toxic chemical particles, radon and carbon monoxide gas, pollen, and exhaust fumes from combustibles such as wood or oil. Central air conditioning filters out harmful particles in the air and provides ventilation so that pollutants are not allowed to stagnate indoors.
Reduce Mold Growth: Mold growth occurs in your home due to high indoor humidity levels and moisture. Breathing in airborne mold spores will irritate your respiratory system, trigger symptoms in asthma sufferers, and can cause serious illness after prolonged exposure. Central air conditioning dehumidifies the air in your home, removing the moisture that mold needs to grow.
Increase Property Value: If you live in an area of the country that experiences hot and humid summers, having central air installed can be a bonus when it comes time to sell. Not only does it increase the value of your property, but it attracts buyers that will only consider looking at a home with a central air system.
