Your home comfort system has done a lot for you. Your A/C keeps you cool in the summer, and your furnace keeps you warm in winter. Those aren’t the only ways HVAC has improved your life, though. Here are a few HVAC benefits you probably don’t even think about.
Your A/C doesn’t just cool the air. It also filters it. Dust, pollen, mold, mildew, pet dander, and a host of other contaminants are caught by your HVAC air filter and removed, allowing clean air to circulate through your home. This is particularly helpful for allergy and asthma sufferers, who can breathe easier with fewer irritants in the air.
Going to see the latest summer blockbuster is always fun, and sitting in the cool theater on a hot day is an added bonus. In 1925, when film was a new thing, movie theaters were the first public establishments to get air conditioning. For years, people who couldn’t afford A/C in their own homes would catch a movie to beat the heat. The novelty of air conditioning is one of the things that made early cinema so popular, paving the way for the film industry we know today.
Have you ever thought how amazing it is that apples and pineapples are sold side by side in stores? Pineapples thrive in warm, tropical climates, while apples do best at more moderate temperatures that would stunt a pineapple’s growth. However, thanks to refrigeration and HVAC benefits, fruits grown all over the world can be shipped in climate controlled environments, keeping them fresh when they arrive in your local produce section.
In hospitals, patients with different afflictions need different air and temperature conditions to recover. Some need to be kept cool, while others must remain warm. The climate control in most hospitals is state-of-the-art, allowing different patients to be kept in different conditions, as well as keeping clean air circulating, creating ideal recovery conditions for everyone.
