*Correct use of AC*
As hot summer has started and we use Air conditioners regularly ,
let us follow the correct method.
Most people have a habit of running their ACs at 20-22 degrees and when they feel cold , they
cover their bodies with blankets . This leads to double loss . HOW ???
Do you know that the temperature of our body is 35 degrees Celsius ? The body can tolerate
temperature ranging from 23 degrees to 39 degrees easily . It is called human body temperature
When the Room temperature is lower or higher , the body reacts , by sneezing , shivering , etc.
When you run the AC at 19-20-21 degrees , room temperature is much lower than the normal
body temperature and it starts the process called hypothermia in the body which affect s blood
circulation , whereby , blood supply in some parts of the body is not adequate . There are many
disadvantages in long term such as arthritis etc .
Most of the time there is no sweating when AC is ON , so the toxins of the body can not come
out and in the long term , cause risk of many more diseases , such as skin allergy or itching, high
blood pressure etc .
When you run AC at such low temperatures , it’s compressor continuously works on full energy,even
if it is 5 stars , excessive power is consumed & it blows money from your pocket .
What is the best way to run AC ??
Set up Temperatures for 25 Degrees .
You don’t get any benefit by first setting Temperature of AC to 20 – 21 and then wrap the sheet /
thin Quilt around you .
It is always better to run AC at 25+ degrees and put the fan on at slow speed .
This will cost less electricity and your body temperature will also be in the range and there will
be no ill effect on your health .
Another advantage of this is that the AC will consume less electricity , the blood pressure on the
brain will also decrease and Saving will ultimately help reduce the effects of global warming. How ??
Suppose you save about 5 units per AC per night by running AC on 26 Degree and othe r 10 lakh
houses also do like you then we save 5 million units of electricity per day .
At the regional level this savings can be crores of units per day .
Please consider the above and do not run your AC at all below 25 degrees . Keep your body and environment healthy .
