Better Sleep with HVAC Service in Birmingham

Improve your sleep experience when you hire Douglas Cooling & Heating to perform your HVAC service in Birmingham! Whether your home is too warm, too dry, too humid or has poor air circulation, HVAC service helps.

Stop tossing and turning all night and wake up refreshed in the morning. Try any of these HVAC services and solutions designed to help you maximize comfort levels and get a peaceful night’s sleep.

Use HVAC Service & Products to Control Humidity

Optimize your home’s humidity level for ideal sleep conditions. Too little humidity leads to itchy, dry skin, which wakes you up. Too much leaves you uncomfortable and clammy. You won’t be able to relax, and you may not be able to breathe well.

Besides, thick, sticky air attracts insects and promotes mold and dust mite growth. That’s truly a nightmare for anyone in your home who suffers from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory issues.

Eliminate this problem when you install a whole-home humidifier or dehumidifier. In Birmingham, we have unique challenges with humidity at different times of the year. Ask your Douglas Cooling & Heating consultant for a customized plan based on your needs.

Wi-Fi Thermostats

As you approach sleep, your body temperature decreases. You need your bedroom’s temperature to do the same. For this reason, the National Sleep Foundation recommends setting your room’s overnight temperature to between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Set it warmer or cooler and potentially negatively affect the quality of your REM sleep.

Install a programmable thermostat to make temperature control an automatic part of your bedtime routine. A programmable thermostat allows you to set the temperature to fall automatically every night just before bedtime.

Fans and Zoned Air Conditioning Systems

Ceiling fans are a great solution to help combat the higher energy costs of turning down the temperature a few degrees to promote restful sleep in the summer. The continuous air circulation they offer results in a cool and comfortable night’s sleep with a downdraft.

The hidden benefit is the soothing white noise helps many fall asleep. Zoned air conditioning systems are another option. They allow you to set different temperatures in different rooms or sections of the house.

This promotes targeted air circulation and temperature regulation in your home. By dropping the temperature in just your bedroom, you have the option of keeping it comfortable without spending money to cool the rest of the house at night.

Basic HVAC Service: Air Conditioning Tune-Up

No matter your home’s heating and cooling system setup, your HVAC system should function as efficiently as possible to help you get high-quality rest each night. It starts when you hire a licensed expert for HVAC services such as a heat pump or an air conditioner tune-up.

We recommend one every spring before temperatures climb. This makes it easier for your system to maintain your preferred temperature, humidity levels and air circulation. It also helps reduce your energy bills — great peace of mind as you drift off to sleep!
