Health Benefits of Air Conditioning Your Home

Health Benefits of Air Conditioning Your Home

 

Of course, you know that air conditioning makes your home much more comfortable on hot summer days. Many people are surprised to learn, however, that it also provides several health benefits. Here are just a few compelling health benefits of air conditioning your home. 

Improved Air Quality
Air conditioning reduces the humidity levels in your home. Less humidity means less likelihood of mold or mildew problems that can trigger illness and allergies. Your HVAC system also filters the air, helping to remove dust, pollen, pet dander and other allergy triggers. Many of these allergy triggers also fuel asthma attacks, so trapping them in your air conditioner's filter may help you breathe better.

Avoid Dehydration and Heat Stroke
As the temperature climbs, so does your risk for heatstroke and dehydration. Both of these issues are caused by excessive heat and sweating, and both can prove lethal if not corrected. Taking a break in an air conditioned room can greatly reduce your risk of both these ailments.

Reduce Insect Exposure
Most insects like warm damp places. Luckily, A-Plus Quality, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, can make sure your home isn't one. Lowering the air temperature in your home while reducing humidity makes your living space less attractive to insects. This includes insects who can carry diseases to you and your pets, such as fleas and mosquitoes. Keeping your house cool and windows and doors closed means you'll have far fewer unwanted insect guests.

Better Sleep and Exercise
Getting some exercise and sleeping well are both keys to maintaining your overall health. Unfortunately, it's almost impossible to sleep well on hot sticky nights without air conditioning. It's also quite difficult to find the motivation to exercise when you're breaking a sweat just sitting still. Air conditioning creates a much more hospitable climate for both sleeping and hitting the treadmill, hopefully allowing you to do both so you can stay healthy during heat waves.

At A-Plus Qaulity, HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area, we focus on keeping your home comfortable to live in, but also strive to help make your home a healthy one. Take a moment today to check your air conditioner filter and call for service if your air conditioning isn't working the way it should be. Doing so could improve your family's health.

Client Testimonials

  • First experience was on New Year's Day, 2020, when furnace stopped. Called A-Plus and they had a rep (Jack) out quickly. He did some troubleshooting. He wasn't giving BS. Gave me options on repairing or replacing. Non-biased, no pressure. I chose replace and it was done the next day. Good experience all around. Second experience was early March, 2021 when a harsh chemical smell emanating from the furnace room, and pushed through the HVAC venting, permeated the house. Very concerning. Was late night, called A-Plus, immediately answered and suggested some safety moves for the evening. Booked a visit for the morning. Jack again came and assessed the issue and advised where the smell came from (outside). Again, very professional, quick, no BS, good guy. Completely satisfied with the service after often being given the BS treatment from other service providers for the house. Would definitely recommend.

FAQ

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • How do I know what size unit I need?
    If you have any problems with your system, you should contact the contractor who installed the units. All our systems are covered by a 5 year parts, 7 year compressor limited warranty
     
  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
