How Your HVAC Affects Your Sleep Quality

Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial for overall health and well-being, and the environment we sleep in plays a significant role. One often overlooked factor is the HVAC system in our homes. From temperature control to air quality, these integral home components can profoundly affect sleep quality. Efficient Systems, Inc. explains more below.

HVAC Affects

Ideal Temperatures

Uncomfortable temperatures can sabotage sleep quality faster than one might realize. According to studies by the National Sleep Foundation, a bedroom temperature between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit is recommended for optimal sleep. This range is cooler than what most people prefer during the day, but it aligns with the body’s natural drop in internal thermostat at bedtime.

Temperature Variations

The perfect sleeping conditions can be achieved, but certain aspects must be considered. For instance, most upstairs rooms tend to be warmer, so you’ll need to adjust temperatures accordingly. The personal needs of occupants also matter — babies and the elderly require slightly warmer conditions, while most people prefer their rooms a bit colder. Zoned HVAC systems might come in handy here, as they allow different temperatures to be set for different areas of the house to accommodate everyone’s needs and preferences.

Silence and Your HVAC

Another often-overlooked aspect of sleep quality is noise; specifically, the noise emanating from your HVAC unit. A loud and clanging unit can disrupt sleep with excessive noise, but this often happens only with older units. Modern HVACs are typically quieter, most notably inverter units that are extremely quiet and suitable for restful sleep.

Humidity Controls

Too much humidity can make the air feel sticky, while too little can dry your nose and throat. The ideal humidity level in a room for sleep is generally between 30% and 50%. Aside from your HVAC, you might need humidifiers in the winter and dehumidifiers during the humid summers to improve your sleep as you adjust your unit’s settings.

Ensuring Clean Indoor Air for Uninterrupted Sleep

Allergens, dust, and other pollutants circulating in your home can trigger respiratory issues, allergies and discomfort that disrupts sleep. Regularly replacing HVAC filters, sealing ductwork and possibly investing in whole-home air purifiers can significantly enhance indoor air quality and put your sleep back on track.

Let Efficient Systems, Inc. help you improve your indoor temperatures with a well-installed or maintained HVAC that will help you sleep without any worries.
