HVAC Pro’s Know the best Tools for a Comfortable Home
Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best things you can ever do both for your happiness and health. However, if this is not something easy for you to do, or you just want to improve your sleeping experience a wee bit, there are several HVAC solutions which can help you get closer to this goal.
We talked to Matt @ Max Comfort Heating and Cooling
Here were some of his tips!
It’s All About Humidity
If your bedroom’s humidity is excessively high, the air will feel muggy and thick, making it more difficult to relax and breathe. This is not to mention that humid rooms can attract pesky insects and promote the growth of mold that can cause irritation to your respiratory system, thus affecting your sleep as a result.
Meanwhile, a very dry room can make your nasal passages and throat scratchy and cracked, which is also not a great recipe to have a sound sleep. This is why it is a must to ensure that your humidity level is set just right.
With the use of an inexpensive digital hygrometer, you will be able to measure your bedroom’s humidity level. You are looking for something between or near 40% to 50%. If you are way off, you can use a small and standalone dehumidifier or humidifier to push the figures toward a sweet sleep level.
Try to Be Cool
As you get ready to fall asleep, it is natural for the temperature of your body to drop for you to feel more relaxed. If your bedroom is also cool, you will get more benefits from this process. Experts say that the ideal temperature in bedrooms for optimal sleep is around 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit.
It is easy to maintain this temperature during winter, and can even help you save money on your heating expenses. However, it isn’t cheap to achieve this low temperature with your AC. To keep yourself cool during hot nights of summer, fans could be your best option.
Another alternative is to consider zone-control AC systems that let you set varied temperatures in every room. If you can lower the temperature in your bedroom alone without cooling the rest of your home, you can enjoy a cooler sleep every night without spiking your energy expenses.
Enjoy the Breeze
Fans provider lots of benefits for bedtime routine. A ceiling fan’ downdraft creates a cooling effect on the skin all through the night that keeps you comfortable and nearer the ideal range of temperature. This also circulates the air to keep this fresh, making it easier for you to breathe. An added benefit is that steady white noise hum produced by most fans. Its effect is also soothing that you could even opt for a noisy box fan if you have a very quiet ceiling fan. White noise not just helps you fall asleep as this can also keep you asleep through muffling noises in the middle of the night which can wake you up otherwise.
