I heard that if we use air conditioner often, it is not very good for our health. However, I forgot what is the reason. I think air conditioner is really a good invention, and people are so clever, I love that invention. However, if is not good for health, I think I will control myself when I use it .

I have never heard anything about air conditioners causing any sort of health problems but it wouldn't surprise me if someday someone said that air conditioners do cause health problems since it seems like everything is a health hazard now of these days so nothing really surprises me anymore.

If you don't clean the filters regularly, microbes grow in the moist filters that are blown in to the room along with the cool air... You breathe the cool air, inhaling the bacteria that's trapped in the water droplets... The next thing you know, you have legionnaire's disease!

In my own opinion, yes, it can be bad not only to your heath but in our eco system as well. Air conditioners produces high amounts of CFC that contaminates our ozone layer. It's best to use air conditioners only when needed, this way, not only you can conserve energy, you also help prevent CFC from reaching our ozone layer. Which is good since CFC causes our ozone layer deteriorate which causes global warming.
