Air conditioning: The Maniac Killer
It is already summer, aren’t you seriously fed up of the hot climate? Some love summer, whereas some of us don’t! Well, sometimes the hot climate could be a really frustrating thing to bear.
Most of us can’t survive the climate without an air conditioner or a fan if I’m right? Although the air conditioner saves us from the heat, making us feel like being in heaven, not all of us realize that air conditioning could be a real threat to our life.
Nevertheless, are you aware of this luxury equipment? Do you know the typical bad health consequences that an air conditioner could do? Take a look down below.
I have been sitting for prolonged hours in the air conditioner for the past 5 months and guess what all that was gifted to me was dry skin and less oxygen in my body.
Nevertheless, currently I’m suffering from lack of oxygen and I’m seriously trying my best to avoid sitting in air conditioners.
These are some of the facts you should really be concerned about air conditioners.
1) Respiratory Diseases:
Are you an asthma patient? Well, then this is something you really should worry about. Patients with asthma have experienced an even worse case after being exposed to air conditioning for quite a while.
Cold can be the symptoms of getting triggered to asthma, coughing and shortness of breath. In addition, too much exposure to air conditioning can lead to severe respiratory damage. This even leads to dry sore throats, loss of voice, headaches and more on.
2) Skin problems:
Getting your skin exposed to too much of air conditioner can make them dry. Long hours spent in it will make you lose moisture, if you don’t apply a sufficient amount of moisturizer to your skin then you will have to suffer from severe skin dryness.
This can even make your skin itchy. If you have normal skin then once you go outside you won’t have a problem since your skin will bounce back to normal, but if you are that person already with dry skin then that would be a real hectic thing to deal with as dry skin will stay longer than.
3) Dehydrated skin:
Sitting in an air-conditioned room will make your body go dehydrated, this happens because the air conditioner sucks in all the humidity around your atmosphere leaving the room frozen and dry.
If your body is used to the cold it will refrain you from drinking water which means you will literally end up dehydrated.
In case if your air conditioner is set at a very low temperature and you are feeling too cold this will make you drink more water.
4) Headaches and fatigue:
Since sitting under air conditioner’s can make you go dehydrated, leading to headaches and migraines.
If you don’t maintain a good hygienic air conditioner the contaminated air will tend to increase your migraine to the highest peak.
People working under extreme air conditioning have complained about severe headaches and migraine over the past years. People have also experienced irritations in the mucous membrane in addition with a cough, and flu.
5) Dry eyes and allergy:
An unclean air conditioner could lead to the growing age of bacteria and dust in the air. All the gathered dust in the air will circulate in the atmosphere leading to skin allergies, redness and itchiness.
A dry eye situation can cause irritations and redness in the eyes. Even though this is not the main reason for eye dryness however people over the past years have complained serious discomfort while sitting on air conditioners for prolonged hours.
