When you live in hot country, such as Singapore, you may need to use air con inside your room. This unit can help you stay in your comfortable room for long period of time. There are many people who turn on their air conditioning unit all day long. It is not recommended to leave aircon on during the night because it can make you ill. There are several reasons why this action can make you ill after you wake up. Here are some of those common reasons why you can get ill after leaving aircon on all day long.
a. Your body temperature can go too low
The first reason why you should not turn on your aircon unit for the whole night. When you are sleeping, your body temperature usually falls down. This is a natural process of your body. That is the reason why your body temperature may go too low when turning on your aircon unit for long period of time. It is recommended that you setup your aircon unit to reach normal room temperature. Do not setup the temperature of your air conditioning unit too low. When your body temperature is low, you may lose some functions of your immune system.
b. It can dry your body
Many people ask, “Can aircon make you ill?”. The answer is yes, especially if you leave it on for long period of time. The air conditioning unit usually blows cold and dry air to your room. This cold air can dry your body parts, including your skin, throat, mouth, and many other parts of your body. There are many health problems that can be caused by this condition. You may have sore throat after sleeping in very cold room temperature. You can also have some skin problems when leaving this aircon unit for long period of time.
c. Cold temperature can reduce your body’s ability to produce natural hormone
This is also why you should not leave your aircon unit on during the night. Many studies show that cold temperature can reduce your ability to produce natural hormone inside your body. When you are sleeping, your body normally produces some important hormones. These hormones are very useful to improve your immune system naturally. If you sleep in a very cold room, your body may lose some functions to produce enough immune system for your body. As the result, you can get sick easily when you wake up in the morning.
They are some good reasons why you should not leave your aircon unit on during the night. It is recommended to setup the air conditioning unit so it can turn off automatically in the night. You should sleep in a room with normal room temperature to maximize your body function. When sleeping in a room with normal temperature, you are going to enjoy your sleep. You also need to clean your air conditioning unit regularly to prevent any problems that may cause by the dirty unit.
