Getting the best sleep possible every night is an important part of maintaining your overall health and well-being. One of the best ways to ensure restful sleep is to choose the right settings for your HVAC system. In today’s blog post, The Ice-Man, a leading AC repair company in our local area, explains how your HVAC system can help you get a better night’s sleep.
Your body’s core temperature naturally lowers as you fall asleep. If your thermostat is set too high, then you might not have restful sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends setting your thermostat between 60-67 degrees around the time you go to sleep. If you feel cold, then use blankets instead of increasing the heat. You should also consider keeping a fan running in your bedroom to improve airflow.
As an experienced AC contractor, we also recommend controlling your bedroom’s humidity levels. Excess moisture can affect how well you sleep. Signs of excess moisture in the air include condensation on your windows and a muggy feeling in the air. If the humidity level is too high in your bedroom, then consider using a dehumidifier to remove the moisture.
A small amount of noise from your HVAC system is normal. However, if you hear any grinding, squealing, banging or thumping, then you need to give us a call. These noises can indicate that there’s a problem with your HVAC system. These noises can also interfere with your sleep.
