Optimize Your HVAC System For a Good Sleep
A good night’s sleep is very important for your overall health and can make a huge difference in the way you behave. Keeping your heating and air conditioning running well is a big factor in getting quality sleep. It’s easy to improve the quality and extend the duration of your sleep by simply adjusting your HVAC system.
Here are some tips on how to make the best use of your HVAC system and enjoy a better night’s sleep:
Temperature and humidity
Our body temperature naturally drops when we prepare to go to sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, your bedroom temperature should be set between 60 degrees to 67 degrees and 7 to 8 hours of sleep should be enough for a good rest.
Factors such as temperature and humidity in your bedroom can significantly affect your sleep, try to control it as much as you can. Noise also affects sleep quality, so if you hear any noises coming from your AC unit, call your HVAC technician to fix the problem.
Remember to clean filters as the fungi and bacteria tend to accumulate here. You don’t want to breathe unhealthy air!
Set the timer
Finally, before you go to bed, set the timer for the conditioner’s automatic shutdown. As you fall asleep, your body will naturally cool down a few degrees.
Sleeping without any problems is guaranteed by following all the previous steps!
