Asthma is a common chronic lung disease that can make it difficult to breathe.The best way to control asthma is to know what your asthma triggers are and how to avoid them. Though these asthma triggers vary with people, some of the most common are dust particles, pests, chemical odors, smoke, pet dander, bacteria and mold. Exposure to these irritants and allergens that are in your indoor air can make your asthma symptoms worse by irritating your airways. This is the reason it is important to keep the indoor air quality clean and healthy.
Air conditioners contribute to a great extent in keeping the indoor air healthy for asthma patients by removing the dust particles and several other asthma triggers from the indoor air. Air conditioners control the level of humidity in your home and thus prevent the growth of mold and algae. So keeping your air conditioner clean and optimizing it with regular maintenance can help reduce your exposure to harmful asthma triggers.
