Air conditioning in Nowra is a great investment and something you’ll truly come to rely on when it heats up during the summertime.

However, there are some things to consider when you choose air conditioning for your home from
Jervis Bay Air Conditioning.

In some cases, it has been linked to illness. Fortunately, this is something you can avoid by maintaining your unit well and following the manufacturer's directions for care and repairs.

Here’s what you need to know.



Germ Exposure



Keeping your windows closed and turning on the air conditioner should keep the germs outside, right? That’s not always the case.

When you don’t give air a way to get out of your home, germs that are present inside simply circulate through the air over and over again.

That can make you and your family sick. You can cut down on this risk by making sure your air conditioner is serviced regularly and that the filter is changed as recommended. 



Mould and Bacteria



Moisture can lead to both mould growth and bacteria reproduction in your home.

While an air conditioner is a great idea for many people, it can also collect the germs and allergens from mould and bacteria and blow it throughout your entire house, even as it may also be helping dry the moisture.

This can lead to a stuffy nose, store throat and congestion. 


Properly maintaining your air conditioner keeps mould and bacteria from growing inside.

If you have moisture problems elsewhere in your home, have a professional take a look and give you some solutions for fixing the issue. 



Running it Too Cold



Cold feels great when the temperatures outside soar but keeping your home too cool can lead to illness, the common cold being the biggest threat since it tends to thrive in cold air.

When it’s too cold, your arteries might also constrict, which decreases blood flow and white cell production, something that can interfere with your immune system and cause you to get sick. 



Dry Air



For many people, the dry air won’t be a problem, but some people are sensitive to it.

Your air conditioner can cause the air to get too dry, which can cause the moisture in your nasal passages to dry up, increasing your risk of infection.

You could also end up with a headache and soreness in the muscles and joints. 


All these health reasons may sound alarming, but through proper care your air conditioner can keep you comfortable and healthy for years to come.
