What Is Indoor Air Conditioning
The purpose of an air conditioning unit is to remove heat and humidity from the air inside your house or enclosed space in order to provide cold air within. As a result, the cooled air returns to the indoor space, and the unwanted heat and humidity is transferred to the outdoor space.
The Benefits Of Indoor Air Conditioning
Indoor air conditioning is a must-have for any modern home. It provides comfort during hot summer days, helps reduce allergens and pollutants from the air, and can even improve your family’s health. Investing in an indoor air conditioning system is a wise choice that will pay off in the long run.
Here are some benefits of indoor air conditioning:
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Allergies and respiratory conditions are particularly affected by the quality of the air we breathe. Air filtration reduces the damaging effects of airborne particulates by removing pollutants from the air.
For example, hay fever sufferers. During the summer months, when pollen counts are high, it’s impractical to open windows – but with an AC system installed they can get relief from the heat.
- Both your property and the health of your inhabitants can be affected by high humidity. Moisture in the air constantly exceeds a threshold, encouraging mould growth and rot. Your belongings and the fabric of your building can be damaged as well in worst case scenarios. Health-wise, damp and mould caused by high humidity can trigger asthma attacks, cause allergic reactions, and introduce harmful bacteria. Low humidity levels can also cause skin irritation. Home humidity can be controlled most effectively with air conditioning.
Less Noise & Fewer Pests
- There are a number of benefits to throwing our windows open in summer, such as hearing the birds singing or smelling the fresh cut grass, for example. There is also traffic noise, as well as a constant influx of bugs, which is not so pleasant. There may seem to be a minor inconvenience, but it can actually prove to be a big disruption, especially for those who work from home. When you have an AC system installed, there is one less thing you have to worry about.
- Security is perhaps the most important reason to choose an AC system over having windows and doors open at night. Your family and personal belongings are as safe as they can be with access to your property tightly blocked.
In most HVAC systems, humidity can be controlled in order to maintain a comfortable environment. Your HVAC System’s evaporator coil condenses water vapor, or the water vapor that evaporates from a room, in a process akin to the condensation on the outside of a cold beverage glass in the summer. When your home’s hot, humid air comes into contact with the cold evaporator coil, this can lead to a situation in which condensation occurs. It is then the liquid in the air that condenses out, making your home less humid as a result. As a result of the evaporator coil collecting moisture, it is sent to a drain which is then sent outside, away from your home or office building, where it can be drained.
