If your home doesn’t have air conditioning, and you’ve been on the fence about it, this year is a great year to treat yourself to a cooler home, especially if someone will be working from home. An air conditioner will create a comfortable, cool, comfortable oasis when you need a break from the summer heat. It also brings other benefits.
Acclaimed! Heating, Cooling, & Furnace Cleaning in Edmonton shares reasons why you should install an air conditioner this season:
Improved home comfort
The first and most obvious reason is to improve your home’s comfort during those blistering hot days. There are a few reasons why a cooler home is beneficial.
Productive home offices: More of us are working from home offices this year, which means we are at home during the hottest parts of the day. If you’re overheating, it can be distracting and uncomfortable. A cool and comfortable workspace can improve mood, productivity, and decision-making.
Improve sleep: A hot summer night without air conditioning can make falling asleep nearly impossible. A properly working air conditioner will help regulate the temperature in your home at night. You can adjust the thermostat to your preferred temperature for optimal sleep. Read how room temperature impacts sleep quality.
Improve indoor air quality and ventilation
An air conditioner can improve indoor air quality because it circulates and filters the air. If you keep your windows closed and curtains drawn to stay cool on the hottest days, no fresh air is coming into the house. Once you have an AC, make sure to keep it clean and to change the filter regularly. Air conditioner maintenance will ensure better performance and cleaner air.
A better alternative to keeping the windows open
Without air conditioning, the best way to cool down your home after a hot day is to keep the windows open at night. While we welcome fresh outdoor air, open windows when you’re sleeping can decrease the security of your home. Open windows will also let in noise from the outside, which could be a problem if you live on a busy street. Allergens like pollen and dust can also enter the home with the windows open. That could cause problems for people who have allergies.
Replacing your old AC will improve efficiency
If you already have an air conditioner, but it’s old and worn out, consider a replacement this year. New air conditioners are highly efficient. They require less electricity to run, cool your home more effectively and can help reduce your monthly energy costs. If you’re not sure how efficient your older AC is, connect with Acclaimed! One of their technicians can give it an inspection. From there, they can suggest a tune-up to get it running more efficiently or a replacement.
