The Truth About Aircons in Medical/Doctor’s Offices

We have all heard the myths and stories about how an aircon can make you sick and affect your health immensely. So, it is easy to understand why patients can become hesitant when a doctor’s room is equipped with air conditioning. However, are aircon units truly bad for your health and if so, why do doctors still choose to have them in their offices? In this blog, we take a look into the truths and myths.

Busting The Myths of Air Conditioning Like A Ghostbusters Movie!

While cold weather in general can make you more vulnerable to getting sick, cold temperatures will not cause sickness. The only contributing factor to the common cold is bacteria, viruses and germs. Top-quality aircons can actually be beneficial to those who suffer from asthma and allergens as pollen and dust are filtered out of the air through the aircon unit. Using an aircon with a high-quality filter designed to capture dust, contaminants and allergens eliminates harmful bacteria and viruses from the air, assisting with your health and wellbeing throughout any season.

The Fact of The Matter

With all of this being said, any aircon unit with an inefficient design, poor maintenance, damage or incorrect installation can become a breeding ground for fungi and bacteria – a quick move to sickness and illness. An air conditioning unit that is neglected, and has not been cleaned for a while, can become contaminated quickly and cause potential harm whether it is in your office, home or your vehicle, causing mould, bacteria, sick building syndrome and other diseases, read more about mould in your air conditioners here.

In conclusion, good quality, well maintained and routinely serviced aircon units, which are normally placed in doctor’s and medical rooms, are firmly linked to various health benefits. As long as your doctor is maintaining his/her aircon unit on a regular basis, and has installed a top quality one, there is no reason to fear any contamination due to air conditioning and it can even help relieve some of your symptoms while you wait in the doctor’s room.
