Air Conditioning Can Help Stop Sleeplessness

With the current societal pressures in today’s down economy, more and more of us find ourselves with sleep problems. Stresses cause us to be restless and toss and turn in our beds. Our daily lives give us enough to sweat about. It doesn’t help that the summer heat is rolling in and making our living spaces uncomfortably hot. Nobody wants to be tired, cranky and hot all of the time.

The good news is that Air Conditioing has a direct effect on our level of sleep. The cooler we are at night, the deeper we will sleep, and the better rested we will be!

Getting Back Healthy Sleeping Habits Requires Us To Balance Our Behavior, And Our Environment.

There are a couple of things you can do before bed to increase your chance of a sound sleep.

Behavior: 
1. Avoid Caffine
2. Drink Warm Milk
3. Do not eat a big meal for at least 3 hours before bed
4. Nibble a small snack
5. Follow routine
6. Stick to same night hour for sleeping
7. Do not work out for at least 3 hours before bed
8. Do not drink alcohol
9. Do not smoke nicotine

Environment:
1. Sleep between 60-68 degrees Fahrenheit
2. Keep your core body cool right before bed
3. Keep your hands and feet warm under the covers
4. Have a comfortable mattress
5. Avoid light and noise
6. Try a hot water bottle at your toes

The best way to keep our core bodies chilled before bed is simply to louge around in the cool air of our A/C units. If we keep the unit going all night then our bodies through the night.

  • Air Quality In Your HomeThe majority of people do not know that indoor air pollution can often have much higher levels than outside. This is not good for people who suffer from allergies or asthma as these pollutants are the direct cause.Indoor Air PollutantsYour home could be harboring any number of common indoor allergens such as:

                Mold

                Pet dander (skin flakes), saliva, and urine

                Dust mites

                Cockroach droppings

                Pollen

    Once airborne, these particles enter your body through breath and cause a reaction internally, which results in sneezing, coughing, runny nose, or worse symptoms.

    How Your Home Harbors Pollutants

    The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system in your home can both harbor and spread mold and other allergens. Old HVAC units circulate indoor air. With the old units, you can be breathing in the same mold over and over again while your body continues to react to it. The modern day solution is to purchase HVAC systems that bring outside air in that is constantly filtered.

    Always Use Fresh HVAC Filters

    There are multiple different types of filters you should be aware of when replacing your old used ones.

             Flat panel filters- Are designed to protect the furnace, not improve indoor air quality.

             Medium efficiency filters. -Have a higher surface area so they filter more particles out of the air.

             High efficiency filters.-Remove even smaller particles than pleated filters.

             HEPA filters. High-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters use high energy

    Since higher efficiency and HEPA filters tend to put so much stress on your HVAC system, you may want to use a medium efficiency filters since they still work really well and they are cheaper.

    The experts at AirTech can help you pick out which filter fits your needs and install it for you any time

  • Use Air Conditioning to Control Your Asthma
  •   
    Here in California it gets too hot in some locations to be without air conditioning. Not only does air conditioning make your body more comfortable, but it also helps with your breathing. This is especially important for people with asthma.          

    What Air Conditioning and Asthma Have in Common

    Asthma is most commonly triggered by mold, pollen, and animal dander. For most of us, breathing in these particles is unavoidable, but the good news is that air conditioning units all contain filters that keep our particle intake to minimum. Air conditioning also helps eliminate humidity. Humidity feeds mold and algae to grow much more rapidly then it could if it were living in dry air.

    Air conditioners work by:

    1. pulling air into the unit
    2. which gets forced through filters, blowers, compressors, condensers, coolers and evaporators
    3. then blasted back at the temperature of your choice.
    This cycle keeps the air circulating in your environment and eventually through your lungs. If the air is not pure, and still contains heavy mold, pollen, and animal dander then the problem lies in the upkeep of the unit, and you might be at risk of an asthma attack.
