Temperature is an important aspect to getting great sleep in Modesto, CA. However, there are many things about your HVAC system that may disrupt that sleep, leaving you feeling lethargic. Look into the most common ways your HVAC system may impact your sleep and what you can do about it.
Unregulated humidity is a significant cause of poor sleep quality. If your air is too dry, you may experience itchy skin, a sore throat and more.
The solution is to monitor your indoor humidity level and adjust it as needed. You may benefit from a whole-house dehumidifier in the summer, or you might need extra moisture over the winter.
If you’ve neglected HVAC maintenance, you may experience fluctuating temperatures. Everything from reduced airflow to faulty components may cause these fluctuations. Whatever the cause, this may prevent your bedroom from reaching your ideal sleeping temperature.
If your air conditioner or heat pump unit sits outside your bedroom window, you may hear it as it runs. However, many other problems within your system may cause loud noises that could disrupt your sleep. It’s time to call a repair service technician if you lie in bed awake because your system rattles, bangs or squeals.
Poor Air Quality
Allergens and pollutants floating through your air may trigger an allergic response, worsen asthma or even contribute to sleep apnea. The standard HVAC system may remove some airborne contaminants. However, your home may need an extra boost by adding an air cleaner or air scrubber.
There are individual room models for improving air quality. However, you’ll treat your entire home more effectively using a component added to your HVAC system.
