How Air Conditioning Affects the Health of People and Pets

Central air conditioners can have some interesting effects on the health of living beings in Fort Pierce, FL. Read on to learn about some of the ways central air conditioning could affect the health of both people and pets.

Too Much Air Conditioning Can Make You Fatigued

Research shows that an overly air-conditioned office can actually make you tired. If your commercial building constantly has the air cranked up to the max, you might start to get ill or seriously fatigued. This is because you might have constant irritation of your mucous membranes. You also could develop breathing difficulties. If that’s the case, you can contract the flu, a cold, or other illnesses. We recommend commercial HVAC services to fix the problem.

Dirty Air Conditioner Filters Can Make Allergies Worse

The reason an air conditioner can make your allergies worse is because it pushes around dust and dander in the house. While you’re not allergic to the central air conditioner, you could be allergic to the airborne dander and dust. If you notice that using an air conditioner makes your allergies worse, check the filter. If it’s dirty, replace it with a clean filter.

Why Some Pets Benefit From Air Conditioning

Breeds like Persian, British Shorthair and Selkirk Rex cats as well as Pugs, Pekingese, bulldogs and other pets with short muzzles can easily overheat because they cannot pant as effectively as other animals. Therefore, it’s important to run your air conditioner often on hot days to keep your furry friends cool and comfortable.
