Most of the time, you don’t realize just how bad your sleep quality is until someone describes the symptoms. If you’re constantly waking up throughout the night or feeling overly tired in the morning, you’re likely not getting enough sleep. While you may try to change your pillow or bedtime, you shouldn’t leave out the possibility that your Rancho Mirage, CA, home’s HVAC system may be to blame.
While some HVAC noises can come on quickly, like loud banging, that’s not always the case. These noises can often develop over a long period of time and get louder as the weeks go by. If you actively listen to your HVAC system and hear a humming, clicking, or another similar noise, there’s a problem that needs fixing so that the noise doesn’t keep you up at night.
Ideally, your HVAC system should run multiple times a day to remove excess humidity from the air. If it doesn’t run enough, it will make your skin dry and itchy. This can make it super difficult to get a good night’s rest because you’re so itchy.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
If your HVAC system isn’t working optimally, it could allow unwanted allergens like pollen and dust to circulate throughout your home. This can cause your allergies to flare up, which can lead to a bad night’s rest. Upgrading your indoor air quality can help eliminate allergy flareups inside your home, which can lead to a more peaceful night’s sleep.
Wrong Temperature Setting
While you’re likely concerned with your energy bills, you may struggle to find a temperature that keeps your home cool enough to sleep comfortably. If you’re constantly tossing and turning due to being too hot, it could be an indication that you need to turn your thermostat down. Upgrading to a zone HVAC system can allow you to set different desired temperatures for your bedroom and the rest of your home.
Losing sleep because of your HVAC system isn’t something you should live with any longer. If you need help enhancing your heating system for better sleep, it’s time to call Palm Desert Air Conditioning and Heating Co.
