Instead of tossing and turning all night long, take control of your nightly routine to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. One way to achieve this is to fine-tune your HVAC system to the proper settings. Our experts at OK Heating and Air Conditioning share the top tips you need to know here.
- Adjust the temperature. There’s no doubt that the temperature in your bedroom affects the quality of your sleep. Because your body temperature drops as you fall asleep, it’s crucial that the temperature of the room does the same. Set the thermostat from 60-67 degrees F. By upgrading to a programmable thermostat, you can make this process automatic.
- Control humidity. When set to the right level, relative indoor humidity can make your bedroom more comfortable for sleeping. When set too high, it will make the air feel thick and muggy, especially during the summer months. In the winter, the air can become too dry as humidity levels dip. To balance the humidity levels inside your home, consider installing a dehumidifier.
- Turn on your ceiling fan. Your ceiling fan will not only help you keep cool at night, it will also reduce the cooling effort required from your air conditioner. Fans also produce white noise, which many people find soothing, and the sooner you adapt to it, the better your sleep will be.
- Promote airflow. Good airflow also improves sleep quality. If it’s nice out and you want to improve the free flow of air inside your room, consider opening your windows. If it’s too hot or too cold, the ceiling fan will move the air around and help even things out.
