Your HVAC system plays a huge role in maintaining the comfort levels of your home. This is as true when you’re awake as it is when you’re asleep. In fact, a good HVAC system can greatly impact the quality of your sleep. Uncomfortable temperature and unhealthy humidity levels can lead to tossing and turning at night, causing you to lose some precious REM sleep hours.
Keeping your heating and air conditioning running well is a big factor in getting a good night’s sleep. Let our HVAC experts at All Weather explain the important role your HVAC system plays in sleep quality and offer you tips on how you can optimize your system for better rest.
During deep sleep, your body’s core temperature drops by a couple of degrees so cooler temperatures tend to be more conducive to sleep and rest. Consider adding a programmable thermostat on your furnace inspection checklist to help automatically control temperature levels during night time. Make sure to keep it a few degrees cooler to maximize its effects. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a temperature of about 60 to 67 degrees is best for sleep.
The stuffy feeling you get in summer or the dryness you feel in winter are all a result of poor humidity control. Talk to your HVAC contractor about having a humidifier or dehumidifier unit added to your HVAC system to maintain healthy humidity levels, especially at night.
Sounds, Lights, and General Air Quality
Indoor air quality (IAQ) has been linked to a number of health benefits and keeping your IAQ levels up revolves around understanding the importance of changing air filter in home settings, particularly during sleeping time. In addition, noisy HVAC units and unnecessary indicator lights can also disturb your sleep. Routine maintenance should be able to address these issues promptly.
