Did you know that air conditioning your home can help reduce the possibility of suffering an asthma attack? According to Mayo Clinic, running an AC not only reduces humidity in your home, but can also lower the amount of pollen, mold, mildew and other airborne outdoor allergens that can potentially lead to asthma symptoms. Air conditioners can also lower your exposure to indoor allergens, like dust mites.
Another important component of avoiding asthma triggers is routinely changing the air filter in heaters and air conditioners, according to Cleveland Clinic.
Other home remedies recommended by Mayo Clinic include replacing carpet with wood or linoleum, frequently cleaning bathrooms and other humid areas of the home that are more likely to collect mold spores, avoiding pets to reduce your contact with pet dander, and wearing a mask while you dust.
Another Benefit of AC
Regular exercise and maintaining a healthy weight were also named by Mayo Clinic as important components of staving off asthma attacks. Air conditioning can help by providing a cool and comfortable environment for indoor exercise. If your home is a comfortable temperature, you are more likely to hit the treadmill or free weights after work instead of vegging out. After all, no one wants to work out in a hot house.
