More Comfort, Better Health, No Bugs!
Alaska is not immune to the effects of climate change. We’re seeing record temperatures and stronger, more frequent wildfires in Southcentral Alaska. It’s no wonder that customers are asking us for permanent air conditioning and air purification solutions. Check out these benefits of air conditioning in your home:
Heat can be hard on the human body. When the weather is hot, our heart rate and blood pressure increase and our body begins to sweat to try to regulate our internal temperature. This can be dangerous for the elderly and other vulnerable Alaskans as it increases the risk of stroke, dehydration, and other heat-related health issues. High temps also harm everyone’s ability to think clearly and act quickly, raising tempers and decreasing workplace productivity. Finally, hot weather makes it difficult for us to sleep at night, which only amplifies these issues during the day. Air conditioning keeps home and workspaces cool, helping us stay healthy and function properly.
In hot weather, we Alaskans typically open our windows and doors, allowing more pollen, dust, and common allergens into our homes. For those affected by Alaska cottonwood that “snows” in spring, for example, this can be a miserable time of year. But it doesn’t have to be! With an air conditioner, you can keep windows closed and stay cool and at the same time filter out many other common allergens circulating throughout your home.

Bugs Be Gone!
Mosquitos and no-see-ums are ornery little critters that seem to make it indoors despite our best efforts. Opening windows and doors to cool down in hot weather does not help – even if we have screens. With an air conditioner, you don’t have to open your house to those creepy crawlies!
Protection For Electronics and More
Just as heat can be hard on you, it can be hard on your things. High temperatures can fry electronics, leave permanent sweat marks on your clothing, and spoil your food. Air conditioning creates an optimal environment for everyone and everything – not too hot, not too cold.
Last but not least, air conditioning can help you maintain your privacy – and security. When we open our windows and doors, we may let in more than just bugs. Open passages into our homes increase our risk for unauthorized visitors. Air conditioners cool our homes without increasing the security threat.
