A high-quality HVAC system in your Fairplay, MD, home can work wonders for your energy levels while you’re awake. It can also have a positive impact on your sleep. Here are three ways your existing HVAC setup might be compromising your sleep quality:
Doesn’t Cool Your Bedroom Enough
Since high temperatures can make you drowsy, you might think that a warm bedroom is great for your sleep. You’ll probably get tired faster in a stuffy bedroom, but you’ll also be more likely to wake up throughout the night and get out of bed feeling groggy the next morning. If your AC system isn’t able to keep your bedroom cool, it’s probably costing you sleep.
HVAC Lights in Your Room Keep You Awake
Did you know that exposure to even a single photon of blue light after dark can compromise your melatonin levels? If you have an air purifier or a thermostat in your bedroom, it’s probably using LEDs to save energy. To keep the lights out while you’re snoozing, cover all these LEDs with dark electrical tape.
Your HVAC System is Too Loud
It’s normal for your HVAC system to dial itself up and down throughout the night as it regulates your home’s temperature. If the HVAC system maintains a constant noise volume, you probably won’t notice. Loud, sudden and jarring noises coming from your air conditioner late at night can certainly interrupt your sleep. Schedule an AC repair to resolve the issue.
