A good night’s sleep is essential for your health and overall wellbeing. Unfortunately, your HVAC system can be one of the reasons you’re having poor quality sleep. These are some of the issues in your HVAC system that may be inhibiting a good night’s sleep in Midland, MD, this spring:
Poor Indoor Air Quality
Failure to change the HVAC system’s air filters degrades the air quality inside your home. Changing air filters should be done periodically — at least every three months or monthly if you have pets. Poor air quality can lead to health and respiratory problems resulting in poor sleep.
Specks of dust and toxic elements from cleaning products that circulate in unfiltered air can damage your respiratory system once inhaled. To curb this, we offer filtration systems that require minimum maintenance but don’t compromise your air quality.
High Noise Levels
Your system can make a little harmless noise as it runs. However, if your system is loud enough to keep you up at night, it may be time to call a service technician. High noise levels can signify an old system or one that’s about to break down.
Low or High Humidity Levels
Do you wake up in the middle of the night due to irritation in your nose or throat? This could be a consequence of low humidity in your home.
On the other hand, high humidity levels may result in difficulty when breathing. HVAC experts recommend keeping relative humidity between 30% and 50%.
Get the Sleep You Deserve
Satisfying sleep can be your everyday experience with a sound HVAC system. All your system may need is adjustments or additional equipment to run smoothly. We recommend performing periodic maintenance checks to keep your HVAC system running optimally.
Some challenges in your system may require the expertise of an HVAC professional, though. The skilled service technician will go through the whole system to make sure every component works perfectly.
