Under normal circumstances, a well-functioning HVAC system should provide you with a nice environment that improves the quality of your sleep. Conversely, a faulty one can have issues maintaining the right temperatures and can sometimes make loud noises that affect your sleep. Here are ways in which your HVAC system in Redfield, AR, is ruining your sleep:
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, you spend about 90% of your time indoors. You don’t want a noisy HVAC system in your home.
Old or poorly maintained HVAC systems can make a loud noise. The noise becomes more pronounced at night when all is quiet. The noise can interfere with your sleep, especially if you enjoy sleeping in a quiet place.
A noisy HVAC system indicates there’s something wrong with it. It could be that the blower motor has bearing issues or there could be loose components in the system. Call your HVAC service tech to inspect the issue.
Most people prefer to sleep under cooler temperatures, but depending on your preferences, you can set the thermostat to your ideal temperature. The problem comes when your HVAC system cannot maintain that temperature, and you lose sleep.
If your HVAC system is having issues keeping the right temperature, there could be a problem with a faulty thermostat, leaky ductwork or lack of maintenance. An HVAC service tech is better placed to assess the problem and restore your system.
