Note when using misting fans in air-conditioned rooms with children
Why should you be careful to use misting fans in air-conditioned rooms with children?
In fact, when we have installed the air conditioner in the room, we just need to add an electric fan. Because most of today’s habit of using an efficient and energy-saving air conditioner is to turn off the air conditioner after about 4-5 hours of use and turn on the electric cooling fan immediately after.
The habit of choosing to use an additional humidifier – such as a misting fan in a room with the air conditioner on is not good. Because the air conditioner as well as the electric fan have been designed and calculated by the manufacturers accurately about the degree of dispersion of cold air as well as providing appropriate humidity for the entire room.
Therefore, when using a nebulizer – a machine that often sprays tiny mist particles that not only cool but also wet the surrounding objects, we inadvertently accumulate more humid air in the room.
The humid environment will make bacteria “visit” and grow strongly, affecting the resistance of young children. Even we adults sometimes feel uncomfortable in a humid environment.
We just need to use more traditional electric fans in the room or ventilation fans is enough to circulate cold air, limiting the baby’s dry skin.
Besides, it is necessary to supplement the amount of water for children every day. This is a factor that helps children’s nasal tissues work more effectively, avoiding sore throats and rhinitis when lying in air-conditioned rooms.
For the above reasons, please be really careful when using more nebulizers in rooms with air conditioning installed.
Some tips for using the air conditioner in a room with small children you should note:
Turn on the air conditioner 15 minutes before putting the baby to sleep (rest).
Expose the child to outside ambient temperature for about 15 minutes after 2 hours of sitting (lying) in an air-conditioned room. Avoid leaving your baby in a cold room for hours at a time.
Should turn off the air conditioner after 2-3 hours, switch to fan mode for young children.
The best use of air conditioners for children (if during the day) is from 11am – 3pm.
Turn on the fan (to ventilate) and let sunlight into the room, to avoid dust and water vapor remaining after using the air conditioner.
Hopefully, the above tips will help you be more careful when using more nebulizers in rooms with air conditioning installed!
