For millions of homes around the country, air conditioning is a welcome
relief from the summertime heat. There is, however, a small percentage
of us that experience an unwanted side effect of climate controlled homes:
a pesky cough.
There are numerous reasons why any one of us could be experiencing a summertime
cough, but most doctors agree that, in some cases, air conditioning can
be contributor to this symptom. The good news is there are a few solutions
for alleviating this issue.
Solution #1: Check and Replace Your Air Conditioning Filter
The most likely culprit to a summertime cough is allergies. Ideally, air
conditioning actually helps clean the air in your home by pushing it through
a filter before circulating throughout the rest of your house.
However, not all filters are created equal—and some filters just
need to be replaced. If your filter isn't working properly, then it
is possible that your air conditioning system is circulating pollen, dust,
and other particles that can contribute to coughing and other allergy
symptoms. If you believe that your filter is to blame for your summertime
cough, contact an experienced Murrieta HVAC professional to assess your
system, recommend a filter replacement, and make any other repairs.
Solution #2: Consider a Humidifier
In order to maintain the lower temperatures, the air quality that is produced
by your air conditioning system is dry. While this is cool and comfortable
to our exteriors, our airways may be made less comfortable by chronic
exposure to this dry air. These airways can become irritated causing a
Humidifiers could help with this problem. These units reintroduce moisture
back into the air and can be particularly effective in bedrooms when we sleep.
