While in the middle of a Twitch live stream game I was a part of, I found that the temperature of my room was getting hotter and more uncomfortable. It was then that I realized how hot my computer was running, so immediately shut down to see what was going on. It turns out, my A/C stopped working, no warm air, no clanking sound, nothing. With the temperature steadily rising, I tried to see about getting an air conditioning installation jacksonville fl specialist out asap, and luckily, I was able to find the company, Air Source America. Having a reliable A/C repairman in Jacksonville is something that everyone here needs, especially if it is Air Source America, as they had my A/C up and running in no time.
With this significant issue taken care of, I was able to resume my gaming once again. With all of this happening, I realized how much quicker my computer room got compared to the rest of my place. My gaming room is usually a comfortable temperature, but this last event made me examine a few things when it comes to computers and air conditioning, specifically how important these two are together.
Overheating- You and Your Computer
As is the case with all electrical devices, energy is needed for it to work. From that energy the computer takes in, it is only natural that from that heat is generated. Now, this excess heat is usually pretty easily regulated with the cooling system, aka its fan. This is to make sure that the excess heat does not damage the computer. Now, this may seem all well and good, but the fan can only do so much, and with the surrounding environment being excessively warm as well means that the cooling system is working against more than it can handle. This is where the threat of permanent damage to your PC comes into play.
To add to the idea of overheating, you can be in some grave danger while inhabiting such a room as well. As described earlier, the excess heat in the room means you are occupying an area that can negatively affect you as well, with dehydration and heatstroke becoming increasingly more realistic threats.
All in all, you want to make sure your A/C unit is healthy, and properly maintained by a company like Air Source America, as it can save you the headache of having to replace your computer or save you a hospital visit.
