If your HVAC system in Wellington, FL, doesn’t maintain consistent temperatures, you may not enjoy good sleep quality. Factors such as a faulty thermostat, leaky ductwork, inadequate maintenance and wrong HVAC sizing can lead to an inefficient system. Here are several reasons your HVAC system might be to blame for your poor sleep quality:
Bad Humidity Levels
Your HVAC system maintains the humidity levels in your home, but it won’t efficiently do so if you don’t maintain it regularly. If your home is too humid, you may turn and toss all night as the air gets stuffy and sticky. Extremely low humidity levels, on the other hand, make you feel dry and itchy, further affecting your sleep.
A single-speed or poorly maintained HVAC system can lead to humidity issues. HVAC service technicians can help you size an HVAC system for optimal performance and can also install a humidifier or dehumidifier if the humidity issue is severe.
Poor Indoor Air Quality
If the air filter or air purification unit of your HVAC system doesn’t perform optimally, it might recirculate pollutants such as dust, pollen and pet dander. These pollutants can cause sneezing, coughing, sore throat, runny nose and eye irritation, among other problems.
Noises from the HVAC system can disrupt your sleep. If there are bangs and booms from the system, you might wake up in the middle of the night, and it may take a long time before you fall asleep again. A service technician can help determine what the problem is depending on the nature of the sound from the system.
