Is Air Conditioning Simply a Luxury – or a Wise Investment?

In San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area, temperatures aren’t typically scorching during summer months as they are in many other areas of the country; still, the weather can be unpredictable! One day it may be 70 degrees, fairly comfortable for most people, the next day it may be 88. Windy days can stir up dust, pollen, and other allergens, leaving those with allergies miserable. If you’re a Contra Costa homeowner who tends to think air conditioning is just a luxury, think again – it can not only make you comfortable on those occasional stifling hot days, but improve your health as well.

There are numerous advantages to having air conditioning in your home, including:

Today’s highly efficient air conditioners clean the air by filtering out dust, pet dander, pollen, and other allergens, which can improve symptoms for those with respiratory issues.

Most air conditioners today also work to heat your home in winter months, which helps for those who feel extremely hot or cold during summer or winter months, particularly the elderly.

With an air conditioner, you don’t have to open up windows to cool your home. This means less pollen, dust, and even insects inside your home, and improved indoor air quality.

High efficiency HVAC systems help control the moisture level in your home, helping to resolve mold and mildew issues which can be hazardous to your family’s health. Most systems work to de-humidify the air, which means it will feel more comfortable to your skin as well.

Even on hot summer nights, you can sleep like a dream without noisy box or pedestal fans.

Why not enjoy a home that’s truly comfortable? Even when it’s 78 degrees outside, temperatures inside can get uncomfortably warm when you’re cooking, running a clothes dryer, or using other appliances that produce heat. Ultimately, a quality air conditioning system will improve your quality of life and your family’s health.
