We’d love to say that we’ve assembled a list of fun facts and trivia about your home’s air conditioning. But that isn’t entirely true of this article. Even so, there are some things about your AC that aren’t immediately apparent or could surprise you. Although we are deep into September, with the autumn equinox not happening until next week, it is still technically in late summer. Heat, haziness, and humidity continue to make going outside feel like you’re stepping into a soup bowl. Seek some relief as you sit down to read about these neat facts!
Changes Indoor Temperatures As Needed
Resetting the thermostat has an obvious effect on the temperature within your home. That’s why when you feel cold, you turn it up a few degrees, and conversely, when you feel too warm, you’ll take it down a few notches. Sometimes, one degree up or down can make an enormous difference in how comfortable you and your family members are. For the most part, the cooling season is behind us, and the heating season lies ahead.
Greatly Improves Your Home’s IAQ
Something else your air conditioning does (and doesn’t get as much credit for it as it should) is that it boosts your indoor air quality. Clean air reduces the effects of allergies. For example, anyone who is allergic to smoke suffers when there is poor IAQ. Unsafe air can make it hard to breathe. Dirt, dust, and pollen are some contaminants pulled out of the air supply.
Keeps Humidity Reasonable and Not Unbearable
Too much humidity is bad news. While you may not realize, excessively low humidity can be just as unpleasant. HVAC systems and air conditioners, in general, manage humidity within your home. That should help you sleep better at night, especially if you are prone to snoring because your airways dry out too quickly. It’s also a good idea to run humidifiers in your bedroom to add extra moisture, just in case.
Timely Upkeep Makes a Massive Difference
Air conditioning units need regularly scheduled maintenance. Without this upkeep, your systems won’t reach their full potential. As a result, increased load demands could become more burdensome. A catastrophic breakdown causes costly downtime for businesses, so how could it affect your household?
