Probably thats what youre breathing in because of air conditioning.

Your Health
Air conditioners aren't just bad for the environment, they're also bad for your health. Unless you're one of those Martha Stewart types who is really good about doing things like dusting the top of your kitchen cabinets, then you are probably not the kind of person who remembers to thoroughly clean your air conditioner filters. And those things are bacteria breeding grounds. Gross! DNAInfo spoke with one woman who said, “I always seem to get sick with an air conditioner on.” And in fact, it turns out that, "bacteria and mold can build up on the filters if they are not cleaned often enough, which can affect allergies and lead to possible longer-term respiratory ailments." Gross. You don't want that, do you? No.
