Utilizing Your HVAC System for a Good Sleep

utilizing hvac system sleepWith proper HVAC technology and maintenance services, like the kind provided by our technicians with At Your Service Plumbing, Heating & Air, you can control the air quality and comfort levels of your home or business to the full extent. Modern systems allow for complete grasp over everything from basic temperatures to several other HVAC areas, allowing you to make life more comfortable without running up a huge energy bill.

One particular area where your ability to control your comfort levels comes in handy? Sleep. You may not realize it, but there are several HVAC areas that relate directly to your body’s consistent ability to get a good night of sleep – let’s look at a few of these areas and how you can optimize them while still keeping your utility bill low.

Proper Temperature Range

The simplest task of your HVAC system is maintaining your desired temperature, and the range you should be in here is more specific than you might think when it comes to sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends all humans sleep with the temperature somewhere between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit.

If your room is significantly colder or warmer than this, it could lead to restlessness and the disruption of REM sleep, a vital bodily cycle. You should be on the higher end of this range if a baby or toddler sleeps in the room with you, but never exceed 70 for any reason.

Humidity Concerns

Beyond just the temperature, the humidity of your room is also very important. Too much can lead to a damp, muggy feeling that’s both unhealthy and can risk the wood in your home. If humidity is too low, on the other hand, the room – and possibly your skin, throat, hair and nasal passages – will feel very dry.

The optimal range for humidity is between 40 and 45 percent in general, and humidity level detectors are cheaply purchased at any home improvement store. If your home has consistent low humidity issues, speak to our pros about a whole-home humidifier.

Thermostat Options

The thermostat controls much of the above, and which option you choose will play a big role in how tight your grip is. Most homes today have at least a programmable thermostat, which allows you to set a schedule that includes sleep hours – you can have the temperature drop into the proper range if you prefer it higher than 67 during the day, for instance.

There are additional options out there as well, however. A zoned HVAC system includes multiple thermostats that are each responsible for their own area, allowing you to adjust bedroom temperatures only if you want. There are also smart thermostat options that can be controlled from anywhere using your smartphone.

Utilizing Fans

If you’re looking for a low-cost way to cool your room down at night, consider your ceiling fans. These not only can lower the temperature by a degree or two, they circulate air and keep it fresh all night.
