How Your HVAC System Can Help You Sleep Better

There’s nothing more restful than getting a good night’s sleep in your Manassas, Virginia, home. If the temperature is too hot or too cold, you may not achieve deep sleep. As a result, you’ll wake up feeling groggy. The good news is that you can use your HVAC system to help you sleep. Let’s look at ways to maximize your HVAC system as well as use other products to help you sleep better every night.

Keep the Bedroom Cool

As your body begins to relax, your core temperature begins to drop. To help facilitate the relaxation process, keep the temperature in your bedroom at a comfortable 60 to 67 degrees. A smart thermostat makes maintaining the ideal temperature a breeze.

Manage the Humidity Levels

If your home has a high humidity level, you’ll feel hot and sticky, which is not optimal for a restful sleep. Running your air conditioner can help to pull moisture out of the air, lowering the humidity to a comfortable level. Try to maintain the humidity to be between 40 to 50 percent.

During the winter, the furnace can dry out the air, making your sinuses feel too dry. Consider installing a humidifier to ease dry conditions.

Install an Air Cleaner

Clean indoor air also helps you sleep better. If you’re breathing polluted air or other contaminants floating around the house, you may wake up feeling stuffy or congested. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, poor indoor air quality can trigger an attack. One of the best ways to combat dirty indoor air is by installing an air cleaner. It can trap tiny particulates that can cause respiratory issues.
