With the continual changes in weather conditions, an effective and reliable air conditioning system becomes more of a necessity than a luxury item for homeowners and businesses alike. The system benefits far surpass the initial cost of installation.
Here are some of the key highlights.
Benefits for Homeowners
Below are some key benefits of a normally functioning residential air conditioning system:
Improves Indoor Air Quality
Common outdoor allergens include pollen, dust, mould, pest droppings and much more. Indoor allergens include pet dander, dust mites and dust. Such airborne agents increase the risks of allergies. The risks are heightened if there is an asthma sufferer in the building.
An air conditioning system's air filter catches these allergens from your indoor air. However, effective elimination of these allergens requires frequent and scheduled air filter replacement by a qualified AC technician.
Helps to Save Life
In areas with extremely hot temperatures, air conditioning systems are literal lifesavers, owing to the fact that death from heat is rampant. Air conditioning systems maintain an ambient indoor temperature and humidity, regardless of the state outdoors.
During the hot summer months, the system fan draws in cool air from the outdoors. To be on the safe side, consult a trained technician to ensure that the system is in optimum working condition.
Protects Interior Furnishings and Electronics
Heat and high humidity wreak havoc to the interior features and fixtures, especially furniture and electronics. Examples include wood warping from loss and gain of moisture. This is extremely destructive to furniture and wooden floors, and it can lead to leather rotting due to high humidity and metal rusting and cracks due to moisture and uncontrolled temperature changes.
Electronic overheating results in frequent breakdowns and shorter life spans. An effective and reliable air conditioning system saves you from the costs associated with these incidents such as replacements and repair.
Benefits in the Workplace
Nothing slows down a workday more than a hot, sweaty afternoon or a freezing indoor environment, especially in the workplace. A comfortable working environment increases productivity and efficiency. A well-maintained air conditioning system responds to the indoor environment and optimises the temperature for comfort and improved air quality.
In the same vein, unfavourable working conditions, especially heat, has been linked to fiery tempers. The body responds to high temperature via increased heart rates and higher blood pressure. This leads to aggressive behaviour and poor decision making. Invest in the right air conditioning system and a specialist AC technician to get the most out of your workforce.
