Quality sleep protects your mental and physical well-being. If your Danville, KY, home feels pretty uncomfortable while you sleep, you might want to check for HVAC system problems. Here are ways your HVAC system could prevent you from enjoying enough sleep this fall.
Poor Humidity Regulation
Fall nights in Kentucky are quite humid and warm. Your HVAC system should be efficient to regulate the high moisture content in your bedroom and all other rooms.
High humidity creates a musty, sticky feel in the air. Additionally, biological growth and bugs thrive in rooms with high humidity. It’ll help if you purchase a dehumidifier for your bedroom to boost humidity control.
Mild humming from a running HVAC system shouldn’t disrupt your sleep. However, unusual HVAC banging and screeching could easily wake you or make it difficult to sleep. Aside from affecting your sleep, HVAC noises could lead to an unreasonable increase in your utility bills.
If the slight HVAC humming causes you discomfort at night, you could move your system to the basement. Also, get an HVAC technician to fix these annoying noises before they grow louder.
Do you wake up feeling extremely sweaty at night? If so, it’s time you checked the temperature settings. for many people, getting to sleep in a hot and humid room is almost impossible.
Try setting the temperature on your thermostat a little lower than you set it while you’re up and about. Additionally, you could install a fan in the bedroom to help lower the temperatures.
If your home uses a central HVAC system, it could be time you invest in a mini-split system. Ductless mini-split HVAC systems are incredibly efficient, thanks to their improved technology. Mini-split and multi-split systems can also help to ensure better airflow and freshness.
