Is Breathing In Freon Dangerous?
Morning .. I was a child like inhaling deeply in the freezer freezer. In addition to the refrigerator freezer, I also like car / vehicle air conditioners, as well as room air conditioners. Anyway, every time I met the same cooler, it felt like to get closer to the air source and breathe deeply. It feels instantly calm / stress goes away if you breathe in the cooling air. Is that normal? Or is there something wrong with me? My friend said, that thing / freon is not good to breathe, is that true? Thank you..
Hello Syamel88, Thank you for the question.
Do you always have to do this habit and if not done will have a negative impact or you feel disturbed? If habits do not cause you any distractions, then for the time being there is nothing you need to worry about. You need to worry about this condition if it has caused interference, for example if you do not do it you will feel weak, headaches, anxiety, or unable to move as usual, or disorders in the form of health problems such as coughing, runny nose, sore throat, fever.
The air in the freezer or from air conditioner does not contain freon. Freon is a trade name for halocarbon products, one of which is chloroflurocarbon (CFC). Halocarbon products can be in the form of gases or liquids that act as coolants for cooling or refrigerating. In short, this product helps convert hot air to cold through a process and the result is that cold air is released in the refrigerator or air conditioner. However, the cold air produced from the refrigerator or air conditioner does not contain freon. If the installation of freon on the refrigerator or air conditioner has a leak, then this is what can cause poisoning and has certain health hazards. Some of the symptoms that can be caused by freon leakage are shortness of breath, headache, nausea, vomiting, coughing, dizziness, irritation to the eyes, ears, and clashes. If you have certain health symptoms, please consult your doctor immediately for further examination and treatment.
