Many of us spend most of the day in air conditioned rooms or workspaces. Often, your air conditioner can be the culprit that is making you sick. Here is how to find out and what to do about it.
|Cool air can make you sick, and you don't even know it!|
1. You feel weak and exhausted
|Don't stuck yourself. Walk around!|
Another aspect to consider is the age of the air conditioner which is being used. An older air conditioner may not work as efficiently as a newer one, resulting in poor air circulation. Also, the older the air conditioner, the greater the likelihood of the presence of contaminants like fungus and bacteria. The best remedy would be to have old, inefficient air conditioners replaced with the best air conditioner you can afford.
2. You develop respiratory issues
|Have your unit cleaned.|
3. Your nose bleeds regularly
|Your nose becomes a bleeder.|
4. You experience muscle and joint pains
|Being in the cold could hurt your muscles|
5. You get sick when someone else in the office gets sick
|How sad! You've got their sickness too!|
Whether you are at home or at the office, there is likely more than one person in the room. The metabolism of the body works in such a way, that pure, dry air is inhaled and moist air with carbon dioxide is exhaled. This results in a build-up of humidity within the room, which can result in proliferation of germs. The best remedy for this is to get the best dehumidifier, which will make the air within the room more breathable.
In general, it is not necessary for you to run your air conditioner 24 hours a day. When nights are cool, or during the winter months, you could try getting by without air conditioning, by leaving windows open to allow circulation of fresh, cool and healthy air.
