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.

  • My aging furnace conked out on a very cold evening. Sent an S.O.S.... in no time dispatched one of his highly qualified technicians. Furnace had to be replaced. Mission accomplished in less than 24hrs. That is what I call professional service.

    Salam
  • Outstanding service all around. (Thanks so very much!) I would highly recommend you to family and friends. All of you were knowledgeable and professional in every way. The technicians were efficient, helped moved a few heavy boxes, and were careful in my house. I especially appreciate that Jack, who gave me good options, helped my choose what was appropriate for my house (to replace my 25 year old furnace) and at a very fair price. Thanks again!

  • We needed a new boiler fast and they were faster than the other places we got quotes from, they were more sincere, less sales-oriented , and they had more technical knowledge and were able to explain things in layman's terms. They were transparent in their pricing and everything came out as estimated after the boiler was replaced. They didn't try to sell us maintenance packages or anything like that, just gave us the service we needed. We feel lucky to have stumbled upon them.

FAQ

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • 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”.

  • 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!

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.
