Can Air Conditioning help your Menopause?

Jan 18, 2023

Cards on the table, many relationships don't survive Menopause, although for years that's been put down to 'mid life crisis' the marriage 'ran out of steam' (the irony!) or 'he ran off with a hot young thing'...

Let me just say there is no hotter woman than one in menopause - it's just an alternative heat reality!

I recently got chatting with Gary Withers of AAC AirConditioning and he confirmed something I'd long suspected - if a couple install Air Con in the bedroom it actively assists the highs and lows of menopausal heat and removes one of the major challenges of sharing a room.

If a couple can find a way to maintain the love and connection through the highs and lows of menopause, the love becomes even more special.

I'm enormously grateful to Gary who kindly agreed to write a blog explaining more about Air Con and those installation questions which need answers. I'm delighted to share it with you here:

Every woman will experience the menopause in some form, with many having to face challenging physical and mental changes along the way. It’s a natural life event that requires ongoing support from the people close to them and there are also some helpful tools that could be used to make life a little easier.

With temperature changes and hot flushes being one of the most common symptoms of the menopause, many women in their 50s are turning to air conditioning systems to help keep them cooler at home. Here we look at some of the ways that air conditioning can be used to ease the symptoms of the menopause. 

More temperature controls

The more control you have over the climate in your home, the easier it can be to cope with the hot flushes and night sweats caused by the menopause. It can prove particularly important during the night, creating a cooler bedroom for a better night’s sleep. Modern air conditioning units can easily be controlled by handheld, infra-red controls, with multiple settings available to help you find the perfect temperature in the room.

Better air quality

Some air conditioning unit can also help to improve the air quality around the home, reducing the transmission of viruses, pollen and other pollutants. Most standard systems also have a dust filter to further improve the air quality, so you can have an all-round better experience in the comfort of your own home.

Easy adaption

Older air conditioning models didn’t have the best reputation when it came to their design, often looking too bulky and standing out like a sore thumb. That image has changed dramatically in recent years, with modern designs being far sleeker and adaptable to almost any interior space. In some cases, the most you will see is a discreet grille, with internal units sometimes concealed inside a wardrobe or in the eaves of a wall. More standard units can be supplied in a huge variety of colours to match the décor of your home

Quiet comfort

Unless the AC unit is turned on at the highest speed (which is a setting rarely needed in a domestic home) then you won’t have to worry about the system making too much noise at night. Modern units are near-silent in operation, so you can relax and enjoy the cooler temperature in the room without being disturbed.
