Your HVAC System Can Enhance Sleep
The sound of a well-maintained heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system is like a lullaby for a good night’s sleep.
If odd sounds, such as banging, squealing, or rattling, from your HVAC system are keeping you up at night, it is time to schedule maintenance and regain a peaceful nighttime environment in your Montana home.
Let our qualified technicians at Monarch Heating and Cooling inspect, clean, and, if necessary, repair your heating and cooling system. Your HVAC equipment will operate at peak efficiency and with minimal sound after a tune-up. You will notice the enhanced comfort and improved bedtime atmosphere in your Bozeman home.
Sleep Helps Maintain Health
Although the U.S Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends adults sleep seven or more hours per night, one in three adults say they log fewer hours.
Insufficient sleep is related to the development of heart disease, obesity, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic conditions. It can affect mental agility and energy level and lead to accidents resulting in injury and possibly death.
What Causes Sleepless Nights?
Some adults seek professional medical help for sleep disorders, such as restless legs syndrome and sleep apnea, that prevent them from getting quality sleep. Lifestyle and environmental conditions also may cause restlessness.
Experts recommend that you stop using electronics, such as cell phones, television, and computers, at least a half-hour before bedtime. Skip the alcoholic or caffeinated beverages when you are preparing for bed and maintain a consistent bedtime schedule. Set your alarm clock for the same time each morning.
Too Hot or Cold
You will sleep better if you feel comfortable. Keep your bedroom dark and slightly cool at night. Try keeping the temperature from 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Because a lower body temperature makes you sleepy, dropping the temperature at bedtime can help to promote sleep.
Consider installing a programmable or smart thermostat to maintain precise temperature control in your Bozeman home. After you program your comfort preferences, the device will change the temperature for you at night and then increase it in the morning.
Improve Air Quality
Improve indoor air quality by having seasonal maintenance on your HVAC systems. Change your furnace filter every three months during the heating season, and consider installing an air filtration system to work in conjunction with your heating and cooling system. You will breathe easier at night.
Regularly cleaning your bedroom will remove dust, pet dander, and other contaminants that can interfere with your comfort at bedtime. Polluted indoor air can cause health problems, including sore throats and congestion, and can interfere with your sleep.
