What are the advantages of air conditioning?

Wherever you live, but especially in Spain, you will already be aware of the comfort that air conditioning can bring to your indoor space. But did you know that – contrary to popular belief – it can also significantly improve indoor air quality and create a much healthier atmosphere?

This is because your air conditioning unit is capable of filtering out pollen, dust, and other allergens present in the environment.

Some other benefits include:

Reduced Possibility of Asthma Attacks…

A/C not only reduces humidity in your home, but can also lower the amount of pollen, mould, mildew and other airborne outdoor allergens that can potentially lead to asthma symptoms.

Less Insects and Parasites…

Air conditioning filters are certainly more effective in keeping bugs out than an open window. This not only protects you (and your pets) but it keeps your house cleaner.

Better Sleep…

This is one of the top benefits for many people. There are a number of tips to help you sleep better, one of which is keeping your bedroom cool.

Reduces the Risk of Dehydration…

Many people don’t realise that when we sweat, we are actually losing a large percentage of our water intake. It is important to stay hydrated and lower air-conditioned temperatures mean less sweating.

Prevents Electronics From Overheating…

Heat can do serious damage on electronics such as shortening their lifespan to losing data.

Improves Work Performance…

Work or jobs at home always seem to drag on when it’s hot and uncomfortable. The comfort provided by air conditioning can actually help keep your mind clearer, alert, and ready to tackle the tasks of the day.

Cool Place to Exercise…

It’s often recommended that we don’t work out in Spanish summer temperatures and we often won’t feel like doing so anyway. Air conditioning can help by providing a cool and comfortable environment for indoor exercise.

A More Secure Home…

Generally when we air condition our homes we keep our windows and doors closed, meaning added security.

Reduces The Risk Of Heat Stroke…

Hundreds of people have died from heat stroke. The Centre for Disease Control and Prevention note that air conditioning is a significant protective factor against heat-related illness and death.
