Can My HVAC System Impact Sleep Quality?
A poorly maintained HVAC system can negatively affect your body. One of the ways you’ll notice this impact is a poor quality of sleep. If you’re having trouble getting a peaceful night’s sleep, check for these issues in the HVAC system in your home.
Your Home Has Too Little Humdity
If you have too little humidity in your home, you could suffer from dry skin and a dry throat. Look to maintain your humidity between 30% and 50%. If there’s too little humidity or too much, our technicians can inspect your HVAC system.
A Noisy HVAC System
If your system makes a little noise as it runs, this is normal. An unusually noisy heating and cooling system, on the other hand, is a warning sign that something is amiss.
It could be that your system is simply old, or it could be that it’s about to break down. If the noise is loud enough to disrupt your sleep, call our technicians to inspect it to see what’s wrong and how to fix it.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
If you haven’t changed your HVAC’s air filters, you’re going to suffer from poor indoor air quality. Make sure you change your air filters at least every three months to maintain fresh air. If you have pets, think about changing your air filters monthly.
Poor indoor air quality can affect your respiratory system, which can lead to poor sleep. Dust, toxic chemicals and residue from cleaning supplies can have adverse effects on your health. Swapping out your air filters and maintaining your HVAC system will help improve the air quality in your home.
When it’s time to maintain your HVAC system, our technicians can do a professional job. Contact us at Sun City Plumbing & Heating, so we can schedule an HVAC maintenance appointment.
