In months when there is no respite from a lot of heat, air conditioners make us a good save. Despite their help during these seasons, they are not as good as you may think because they have a lot of side effects when it comes to your health and the environment. The side effects are because most people do not know how to use the devices or what location they should be kept when in use.
What are the exact effects of these devices? Below are some of the effects and how you can avoid them:
- Annual care and maintenance
Because the AC is always exposed to all weather conditions, dust from the environment, and other particles like dye can make the AC jam. This may lead to the development of respiratory diseases. Therefore, make sure that your AC is serviced often to ensure it is in good working condition and, if not so, then be prepared to wake in the middle of the night coughing like a maniac. Keep in mind that if you have allergies and are using an AC, then the allergy will worsen throughout the whole summer.
- Be exposed to fresh air.
When you are used to an air conditioner, temperatures outside your house may be a bit hot. Do not be overexposed to the AC in the name of luxury. It’s also a little bit better to spend some little time outside your house to enable the body to adapt to the normal temperatures and be active.
- Get the room well ventilated.
In case your house has a lot of contaminants, then letting enough air into the house will save you the headache. Cold air produced by your AC is heavy and makes your breathing process difficult. You are also advised to make sure that your room is well ventilated to enable better and normal breathing processes.
The best way to control the effects caused by air conditioners is to utilize the device. It is good to enjoy the hot sun while under your AC, but you should also be informed of its side effects on your health and environment. You should, therefore, prevent the effects by following the precautions and use of knowledge.
