Your Air Conditioner is Making You Sick...
Breathing recycled air can be harmful to your mental & physical health
Ever wake up in the morning with an inexplainable head cold and suffer through your day with a range of symptoms like headache, running nose and a sore throat?
Well it may be your AC that is making you sick. What many do not realize is that your AC does not bring in fresh air, rather it recycles your existing indoor air, cools it and pushes it back out at a lower temperature. The result of breathing this recycled air can be harmful.
Indoor Air Pollution & Air Conditioning
You may be wondering how this recycled air can be so harmful, I mean your AC does have a filter... but what may surprise many people is that indoor air quality can be up to 5x worse than outdoor pollution. This is because our homes are designed to be airtight, keeping the temperature comfortable while protecting us from the elements. The unintended consequence of this is that we end up breathing in a cocktail of indoor pollutants that can cause effects detrimental to our health.
Health Hazards of Breathing Indoor Air Pollution
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) estimates that as of 2017 there were 1.6 million premature deaths caused by complications related to indoor air pollution. This is a serious public health issue that more and more people are becoming aware of. While for most people breathing in constant pollution activates an immune response in the form of a recurring cold with all of the standard symptoms such as a runny nose, headaches, chills, and a constant cough. Air pollution has also shown to cause sever headaches and has had negative effect on cognitive ability and focus.
Common Causes of Indoor Air Pollution
Everyday sources of dangerous home pollutants
Many common household activities result in the production of particulate matter and pollutes the air we breathe. Here is a list of some of the biggest air quality polluters at home.
Cooking Gasses 🍳
Cooking has been shown to be a huge indoor air polluter. Particularly when frying with oil, experts suggest cooking only in well ventilated areas when fresh air can remove the carbon monoxide, formaldehyde and other harmful pollutants that are created from natural gas stoves.
Tobacco Smoke 🚬
We know that smoking is dangerous to our health, but studies have found that second hand smoke can be just as harmful. Not only that but tobacco smoke has a way of sticking to walls, carpets and other fabrics leaving your home with a nasty smell.
Pet Hair 🐾
Yes pets are awesome and they provide us with loads of unconditional love. But they tend to track in outdoor dirt and are constantly shedding dander and hair that can cause allergic reactions.
Dust Particles 💨
Dust particles are created everyday from sources such as dead skin cells being shed, organic matter that gets tracked into your home from outside and can be even spread throughout your home by running an unclean air conditioner.
Plant Pollen 🌼
Many people suffer from seasonal allergies cased by plant pollen primarily in the springtime. These microscopic particles can cause a range of symptoms from runny noses, to coughs, sneezes and itchy eyes.
Mold Spores 🍄
Molds tend to grow in damp and dark spaces in our home such as bathrooms and air conditioners. While most mold will only cause mild irritation for humans, some molds, such as black mold can be extremely harmful to human health.
Airborne Bacteria & Viruses 🦠
While totally invisible to the naked eye, we come in contact with thousands of airborne viruses and bacteria everyday. While many are not harmful to humans, there are some that can cause illnesses from a minor flu or cold to SARS-COV-2 infections.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)
VOC's are present in a wide number of household products from cleaning supplies and paints to carpets, upholstered furniture and even humans contribute the most indoor VOC pollution.
