Correct Use of AC or Side Effect of AC – may be leads to ARTHRITIS


Correct Use of AC
As very hot summer has started & we use AC (Air Conditioners) regularly, Let us follow correct use method.
Most of people have a habit of running their Air Conditioners at 18-22 degrees and when they feel cold, they cover their bodies with blankets. This leads to double loss.. HOW ..?????
Do U 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 tolerance.
When the Room temperature is lower or higher, the body reacts, by sneezing, shivering etc.
When U run the AC at 18-19-20-21 degrees, room temperature is much lower than the normal body temperature & it starts the process called hypothermia in the body which affects 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’t come out & in the long term, Cause risk of many more diseased, such as skin allergy or itching, high BP etc.
When your AC run at such low temperatures, its compressor continuously works on full energy, even if its 5 stars, Excessive power is consumed and it blow 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 5-6 units per AC per night by running AC on 26 Degree and other 10 lakh houses also do like you then we save 5-6 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.
