Will Air Conditioning Help My Allergies?

In the modern world, it may be difficult to imagine working and living under the heat of the height of summer, without any proper means to cool you down. Attempts to beat the heat can be traced back to ancient Rome, where wealthy citizens would use an aqueduct system that worked by circulating cold water through the walls of their homes. However, it was in 1902 that Willis Carrier invented the first air conditioning system. In the latest blog post from AC Direct, we discuss if and how air conditioning systems can help with common allergies.

Allergens such as pollen can cause issues all year round, however, some people will only be affected by these symptoms at certain times during the year. Air conditioning systems allow individuals to shut out such allergens, whilst keeping a comfortable indoor environment. However, although it may be tempting to keep your windows shut and the air conditioning up full blast during the warmer months, ensuring a fresh supply of air is equally important for your health.

To ensure that your air conditioning system doesn’t begin to make your allergy worse, you should ensure that it is regularly maintained. Mold, dirt and dust can build up inside the air conditioning system, leading to these issues being spread around the room. For more information on what can happen during your air conditioning service, head over to our previous post.

With proper maintenance and adequate ventilation to the room, there is no reason that air conditioning systems should make your allergies worse, and in most cases, such systems will help you control the temperature of your room, whilst also keeping out allergens from the outside that may cause irritation.

Before investing in air conditioning, you should consider the type and size of air conditioner you require, as well as its associated cost. You can gain helpful information on the most suitable type of system for your requirements by speaking to a professional installer.
