Air conditioning is a device that is still rare in Polish homes. We can meet her much more often in offices and public places. Is it worth investing in the purchase and installation of air conditioning in our moderate climate? What are the advantages and disadvantages of having air conditioning?

Effective air cooling and heating

The main task of the air conditioner is to provide thermal comfort during warm days. The heat is very tiring, which makes it impossible to function freely. At the same time, it should be noted that they can be harmful and even dangerous for people who struggle with problems related to blood pressure or the respiratory system.

Of course, air conditioners are also useful in winter, as most modern devices of this type offer the possibility of heating the air. It is true that air conditioners are rarely bought for heating purposes, but it is worth knowing that they fulfill this task very well.

Air quality

When buying an air conditioner, we mainly focus on cooling it effectively, while the important advantage is that high-quality air conditioning improves air quality. Air conditioners take the air from the outside, thanks to which the air is constantly exchanged, which has a positive effect on health. Moreover, modern air conditioners regulate the level of air humidity. There are also devices that additionally ionize the air, thus removing microbes and viruses.

Are air conditioning only advantages?

Where there are advantages, there must be disadvantages. Some of the disadvantages include troublesome assembly. However, it must be clearly stated that this is done by specialized companies, therefore the problem with assembly is practically not related to the user.

Another disadvantage relates to the effects of air conditioning on health. You have to remember that air conditioning is not harmful as long as it is properly used. You need to clean it from time to time and you cannot overdo it with low temperatures. Keeping the temperature at a safe level of 22-23 degrees should not be harmful. Problems arise. when on a hot day we set an unreasonable temperature, e.g. 16-17 degrees.

To sum up, air conditioning for the office or for home, it is useful not only in summer, but also in winter. It regulates the temperature, humidity level and helps to clean the air in the room. Therefore, even if you do not feel too much of the heat, the investment in air conditioning seems reasonable.
