Sleep is essential for your health, mood and productivity at work. People in Charlotte, North Carolina, spend about a third of each day sleeping, and getting more rest can even improve your memory. However, an uncomfortable house can wake you up in the middle of the night and keep you from feeling rested in the morning. You can help your family get better sleep by installing a UV air purifier, adding a dehumidifier and maintaining your home’s HVAC system.
Install a UV Air Purifier
UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill microorganisms and keep many pests from reproducing by damaging their DNA. They can prevent allergy or asthma symptoms, sore throats, rashes and other issues that could disrupt your sleep. A UV air purifier can also keep viruses and bacteria that cause colds, the flu, and other illnesses from spreading and making you feel tired. Have an expert install an air sterilization light in your HVAC system’s ductwork or a coil sterilization light for the indoor air handler. As a result, you’ll sleep better.
Add a Dehumidifier
If you often wake up hot in the middle of the night, consider adding a dehumidifier to your home. A dehumidifier will keep your home’s air from feeling hot or stuffy when you try to sleep. It’ll also help you save energy by letting you use your HVAC system less. As a result, you’ll lower your energy bills. Choose a portable model for your bedroom or have a whole-home unit installed in your system’s ductwork.
Maintain Your HVAC System
A problem with your air conditioner could make you and your family too hot. It can also wake you up with annoying noises. You should have your HVAC system checked by a professional at least once per year. That way, you can have any issues repaired before they impact your sleep.
