Find yourself tossing and turning at night? Waking up just as tired as you were when you went to bed? The changing of the seasons can often contribute to poor sleep quality, but it’s not the air outside that’s the problem – it’s the temperature inside your own home.
Believe it or not, better quality sleep can often be attributed to cooler indoor air temperatures. Of course, everyone has their own preferences so the answer is not a one-size-fits-all solution. We recommend toying with your thermostat the next couple of nights to see if that helps you get the sleep you truly deserve.
In the meantime, there are a few things to keep in mind that will help you achieve the perfect temperature for sleeping:
Your HVAC System Must Be Working At Peak Performance
One way to make sure your house remains at the perfect temperature is to make sure that your HVAC system is working perfectly. As we change seasons, it is well worth your time and money to double check the system.
Keep a close eye out for things that may be restricting airflow or causing you to breathe in air that is dirty and dusty. It’s always interesting to note that the smallest blockage can really mean the difference between a perfect night’s sleep and one where you are fumbling around with your sheets all night.
Consider A Programmable Thermostat
This small piece of equipment can make all the difference in the world. Of course, you’ll need to try a few different settings before you find the one that’s just right, but once you do, all of the hard work is already done.
A programmable thermostat will allow you to set it and forget it. You’ll know that the house is plenty cool when you are trying to sleep and perhaps a bit warmer when you are up and active.
Don’t risk another restless night. Get started testing cooler temperatures tonight and if you notice any issues with your HVAC system during the process, give Tri-City a call. We’ll do whatever it takes to keep your system running effectively and efficiently and give you back the hours you’ve been losing tossing and turning.
