How to relieve the body's extrinsic load from heat in the interior

High air pressure, temperatures over thirty or intense sunlight. These are just some of the obstacles in the summer that puts in the way of optimal conditions for the human body. You will rarely encounter each other in a natural environment, but the ideal situation can be achieved with the help of several tips we have prepared for you.

The temperature in the room can cool the shutters in front of the room

The average body temperature of a healthy human is around 36 to 37 ° C. It is only in this value that all the organs and functions of the organism function properly. At a lower temperature there is a subcooling, and on the contrary a higher overheating. Both cases have a negative impact on the vital processes that take place in the body. The optimum body temperature is influenced not only by our own internal heat production but also by the environment in which we move. Ideal is the feeling of so-called thermal comfort, in which one does not feel in a given environment a feeling of unpleasant cold or too much heat.

In the summer, it is often intense sunlight that fills the air and flows into the rooms where we are. With a dazzling environment, excessive heat and overheating of the body, we can easily bring down the fever that accompanies fever, headache, difficulty breathing and nausea. Optimum interior temperatures can be achieved by appropriate shading techniques. "For example, outdoor blinds act as a thermal insulator that regulates the ideal room temperature. Closed outdoor blinds retain up to 94% of thermal energy and are nearly ten times more efficient than internal blinds. Front-window blinds are also equipped with sensors that respond to the sun, and the interior cools or heats as needed, " says Lubomir Valenta (Lomax).

High humidity is eliminated by ventilation, with low humidifiers

Why does it hurt us in hot summer, cough and suffer from airway inflammation? There is low air humidity. An optimum relative humidity is considered to be between 45 and 60%. However, it is not too friendly to the body, and it is often a matter of self-help - a normal family, when it is cooking, drying clothes or showering, releases an average of 12 liters of water daily.

Decreased or increased humidity causes inaccurate perception of air temperature, which may reflect on mood or concentration, and in the long run it is directly harmful to health. It causes allergies, asthma, rheumatic and skin diseases and also promotes the accumulation of bacteria and mites in the home. The solution is therefore regular and sufficient ventilation in the summer to relieve the room of excess water vapor and change the air. Windows, fans and / or ventilation systems can be used. On hot days when air humidity exceeds the acceptable rate, extra dehumidifiers or air dryers or air purifiers can also be taken to help. At low humidity, air humidifiers serve.

Changes in air pressure need to be adapted to daily activities

In the summer we also often hear about fluctuating air pressure. While one day is normal, the second day already poses an increased risk, especially for people with some types of health restrictions. According to Meteopress, the weather in the Czech Republic changes on average every four days and its fluctuations need to be adjusted. It is precisely the atmospheric pressure and its changes that affect the body most clearly in the summer.

The optimal air pressure is considered to be between 1,000 and 1,030 hectopascals, which is accompanied by variable weather. During sunny days the pressure is noticeably rising, rainy weather then results in a significant decline. These changes can then be manifested by headaches or cavity pressures. Low air pressure increases blood density and changes blood sugar levels, unpleasantly signifies also on respiratory diseases and the mental state of people. Increasing pressure in turn increases heartbeat, burdening the heart and bringing the risk of heart attacks and other cardiovascular diseases. It is therefore ideal to make changes to pressure, to meet meteorologists' recommendations, to adapt to daytime activities and weather conditions, or not to go out at all.

Intense sunlight is sometimes necessary to lose

The human organism also affects natural light. Sufficient income signifies psychic and physical health, performance and overall quality of life. Natural sunlight has an intensity of between 100 and 10,000 lux, the intensity of interior lighting should ideally be around 100 to 500 lux. A typical summer day, however, can reach an intensity of up to 200 times higher than normal and leave noticeable signs of human stress in the form of stress, headaches or insomnia.

In addition, the human organism functions on the basis of the innate biorhythm, which is governed by the intensity of light. Therefore, especially during sleep, it is necessary to darken the room and prevent the light flow. In the dark, an important hormone melatonin is formed, which regulates body temperature properly and regenerates the organism so well. "Protection against outdoor lighting is an outdoor blind that responds with the help of a solar sensor and regulates the intensity of the room lighting. Some blinds are also equipped with electronic switching clocks and respond according to the time of day. They can also reduce the ambient noise level by as much as 16 decibels, which also contributes to quality sleep, " concludes Lubomir Valenta.
