The pros and cons of air conditioners

The pros and cons of air conditioners

As the summer heats up, air conditioners will be cranking up to full blast in office buildings and homes to keep people cool. They provide welcome relief from sweltering weather and an obvious solution to prevent heat-related illnesses and deaths. But AC systems themselves can lead to health problems if not cleaned and maintained properly.

Here’s what you need to know about the health pros and cons of air conditioners and how to use them safely:

Pro: Reducing heat stroke

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “air-conditioning is the number one protective factor against heat-related illness and death,” a problem that claims hundreds of lives in the U.S. each year. People who are most vulnerable to heat-related illness are children under the age of 4, adults over the age of 65, people who are overweight and those who are sick or on certain medications.

To help reduce the risk, doctors recommended drinking lots of water during the summer and staying in air conditioned areas during the hottest part of the day.

Con: Bacteria, mold and fungus

Air conditioners can be a breeding ground for the growth of bacteria and fungus. Moisture can accumulate in the coils and fan blades from condensation that forms when cold air circulates through the appliance. If left unchecked, things like mold and fungus can build up and get blown out into the air.

These microorganisms can lead to a number of breathing problems including pneumonia and Legionnaire’s disease, a severe inflammation of the lungs caused by bacteria known as legionella.

To keep airborne mold particles to a minimum, keep humidity in the home between 35 and 50 percent (in hot, humid climates, an air conditioner or dehumidifier might be necessary). Fix water leaks. They can promote the growth of mold behind walls and under floors.
Pro: Easing allergies and asthma

For people with allergies or asthma, research shows that air conditioning can help ward off attacks. According to the Mayo Clinic, air conditioning can help filter out airborne pollen from trees, grasses and weeds to keep it from circulating indoors. Air conditioners also lower indoor humidity, which decreases the growth of dust mites and mold.

Con: Sick building syndrome

Air conditioners can contribute to sick building syndrome, a variety of conditions that are brought on by time spent in certain indoor environments. Symptoms may include dizziness, dry throat, itchy eyes and nausea. A study in the journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine found that “air conditioned buildings generally have a higher prevalence of symptomatic workers than naturally ventilated buildings.” One small study found that HEPA and carbon air filtration systems may help reduce symptoms and improve productivity.

Clean air advice

To ensure that your air conditioner keeps you cool and healthy this summer, make sure you regularly clean or change your air filter. Check that exhaust fans are working properly. And never store paints, cleaners, or other chemicals near your air conditioning, heating or ventilation system, as it can spread dangerous fumes throughout the house.

“When Tomorrow Starts Without Me” from book Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander

“When Tomorrow Starts Without Me” from book Proof of Heaven by Eben Alexander

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I’m not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above
And that I’d have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye
For all my life, I’d always thought,
I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
The thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday
Just even for a while,
I’d say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through heaven’s gates
I felt so much at home
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,
He said, “This is eternity,
And all I’ve promised you.
Today your life on earth is past
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day’s the same way,
There’s no longing for the past.
You have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times
You did some things
You knew you shouldn’t do.
But you have been forgiven
And now at last you’re free.
So won’t you come and take my hand
And share my life with me?”
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I’m right here, in your heart.
