Getting a good night’s rest can help your well-being and productivity throughout your day. However, if the temperature in your room isn’t comfortable, you can end up tossing and turning all night. Fortunately, some ideal HVAC settings can help to improve your quality of sleep in your Lake City, Georgia, home.
Set the Humidity Level
When it’s humid outside and you feel sticky, you could have the same humidity issue in your bedroom. Besides making you feel uncomfortable, high humidity causes respiratory issues, thus interrupting your sleep. Low humidity, however, causes another set of problems, such as dry and itchy skin or sore throat.
The humidity in your home should be between 50 and 60 percent for a good night’s sleep. Installing a home humidifier will bring your humidity level into balance.
Control the Temperature
When you sleep, your body temperature drops. For a good night’s sleep, you need the temperature in your bedroom to drop. Ideally, your bedroom temperature should fall between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit at night. With a programmable thermostat, you can set it to lower the temperature automatically every night right before bedtime.
Alternatively, consider installing home zoning. If you have a different sleep pattern from the rest of your family, you can have the various zones set according to everyone’s needs.
Turn On Your Fans
Fans are a great tool for optimal comfort while you sleep. During a hot summer evening, fans can help your bedroom feel cooler without having to crank up your AC and use loads of energy in the process. A fan also circulates the air, preventing it from getting too stale, resulting in improved indoor air quality. Additionally, a fan produces white noise, which can assist sleep.
