Sleep Better With a Whole House Humidifier

Monday, December 17th, 2018

woman-sitting-in-front-of-windowIf you find yourself counting sheep every night, it might be time to consider adding a whole house humidifier in your home. That’s right, a whole house humidifier can actually give you a better night’s sleep! We always recommend speaking with a qualified HVAC technician before making any final decisions. They can help you select the right humidifier for your home’s specific needs. Mack Morris Heating & Air Conditioning offers indoor air quality services in Palmyra, VA. 

Maintaining the proper humidity levels in your home is just as important to your overall comfort as setting the appropriate temperature. We know it can be easy to overlook the importance of humidity levels, but it can actually have a huge impact on the quality of sleep we receive. In our last blog, we talked about the implications of dry winter weather and the overall impacts it can have on our body, but today we wanted to talk more in-depth about humidity and its effects on your sleep.

Sleep Healthier

It’s simple. When you are healthy, you will sleep better. Because humidifiers protect against illness, you nor your family will be bothered by things like runny noses, sore throats, and coughing, all of which are things that can keep you up at night.

Sleep Quieter

If you or your partner snore, you know just how hard it can be to fall and stay asleep. The snoring that keeps you awake for hours on end might be due to the level of moisture in your air. Dry throats tend to cause louder and more frequent snoring. Homeowners seem to find that they snore less when their humidity levels are well balanced since their respiratory systems aren’t so dried out.

Sleep Soundly

When your home maintains a proper humidity level throughout the winter, your home may actually feel warmer and more comfortable overall. When you aren’t awoken by that annoying midnight chill, you just might get a solid 8 hours of rest.

Sure, we know that there a lot of portable humidifiers on the market, but consider a whole house humidifier this winter season. They perform better, they’re more efficient, and they are simply more convenient. Plus, you’ll sleep better knowing you have a system that you can trust for many years to come.

Mack Morris Heating & Air Conditioning offers whole home humidifier installation and repair. For your humidifier to run as efficiently and effectively as possible, they must be properly integrated into your existing HVAC system. Only an experienced HVAC technician possesses the skills necessary to get this job done right. Each home is different and needs can vary, but luckily our technicians have seen it all! Plus, our comprehensive repair services mean that your system will never be out of commission for too long. You can trust our team to fix any problem that may occur with your humidifier.

If you want to sleep better this winter season, don’t hesitate to speak with one of our friendly technicians. We know there are many things that may keep you awake at night, but don’t let dry air be one of them.
