Getting a good night’s sleep is important to starting the day right and maintaining your health. Healthy indoor air quality and the right temperature conditions can help you enjoy a peaceful and deep slumber. Here are three tips that will help you sleep better in your Stafford, Texas, home:
Lower the Temperature
Your body temperature will need to lower itself to properly allow you to relax. This doesn’t mean lowering the thermostat so that you feel cold at night. Instead, you should lower the thermostat to below your normal comfortable temperature during the day when you’re more active. For those who keep the temperature in their home at 78 during the day, lower it to 68 degrees at night. As a result, you’ll also save energy.
Manage Humidity Levels
Having the proper humidity level in your bedroom can provide an environment that’ll help you fall asleep. If humidity levels are too high, the air becomes thick, which can make it harder to breathe. When breathing is inhibited, it’s harder for the body to relax. That can make it difficult to fall or stay asleep. When the humidity levels are too low and the air becomes dry, it can cause your nasal passages and throat to feel dry and cracked, making it uncomfortable to sleep.
Stagnant air can seem thick and heavy. The use of a fan in the room to create a slight breeze can not only improve breathing but aid in relaxation. A fan can also help you get your room to a lower temperature on particularly hot nights. As a result, you’ll reduce your reliance on the AC system.
Follow the tips above to sleep better and feel more alive during the day. If you need more tips on how to use your HVAC system to improve your living and sleeping environment, contact Conditioned Air at (281) 561-6911 today.
