The heat is on at long last after two months of terrible weather the sun is now shining and all is well with the world.
This extreme heat can affect especially children, and the elderly, so care should be taken to make sure they feel comfortable in this heat. Older people feel the heat more as the human body usually cools itself down by sweating, but it is a fact the elderly have less sweat glands so as a result they sweat less.
A great danger indoors as well as outdoors for the vulnerable is the body heats up much more rapidly and of course can cause heat induced illnesses when the body’s temperature is overwhelmed by extreme heat. A portable air conditioner for the home could help to keep the elderly cool and safe.
Portable air conditioning units can cool down a room in seconds and this will help to reduce body temperature quite dramatically. This is crucial for the older generation during the summer months, as they can be prone to suffer from heat induced illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Many others who can be at risk are infants, overweight people and of course those who have ill health on certain medications.
In the hot summer months humidity is another element that impacts on how the body manages to cool itself, and humidity is impossible to escape without portable air conditioning, it is a medical fact that when the humidity is high sweat will not evaporate as quickly this of course prevents the body from releasing heat, thus there is a higher risk of heat stroke.
When the sun shines we forget how deadly it can be to certain human beings, and portable air conditioners can be the answer to the safety of certain people, people who suffer from obesity, heart disease, poor circulation, dehydration, and of course old age, these conditions are all factors that limit the body’s ability to regulate temperature.
These elements of high humidity and intense heat make a dangerous combination, as very high body temperatures can in fact damage the brain or other vital organs; of course portable units offer a cheaper alternative to fully installed systems, also being very cost-effective for maybe an elderly person’s budget.
A portable unit is efficient to run, easy to use and requires no installation, also can be used in any room in the house and more importantly can rapidly cool down the atmosphere within seconds, and a spokesman for Climachill air conditioning specialists located on the South coast of the UK said, “we are often asked about noise, and it is true to say you simply cannot find a silent portable air conditioner, having said that, our portable units have a top quality Hitachi compressor which maximises output and minimises noise, a compressor is the main working part of an air conditioning system, and cheaper units will not have an established branded compressor such as Hitachi and are therefore likely to be less efficient and noisier with a shorter lifespan. We can help the customer to choose the right unit that is ‘fit for purpose’ and at a price to suit all budgets”.
The heat is on and likely to last for some time, check out portable units NOW.
