We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. Despite the magnitude of this time, quality sleep often goes unnoticed as a critical part of our overall health and wellness. One surprising contributor to restful sleep is our home’s HVAC system.


Research shows that the conditions in which we sleep significantly impact sleep quality, and temperature is a crucial factor. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a room temperature of about 15-20 degrees Celsius for optimal sleep. At A1 Kelowna Heating and Cooling, we recommend WIFI-enabled thermostats that allow you to easily adjust the temperature that your furnace, heat pump or air conditioner reacts to, even when you are travelling!


Humidity is another sleep influencer that can be regulated by your home HVAC system. A too-humid environment can encourage mould growth and allergens, and possibly disrupt your sleep by complicated respiratory issues or allergic reactions. Conversely, excessively dry air can cause throat and nasal irritation. Modern HVAC systems balance this, maintaining indoor humidity levels around the ideal 30-60%.

Inadequate ventilation could also disturb your sleep. It can lead to a buildup of indoor pollutants, which may negatively affect air quality and can cause allergies or breathing difficulties, thereby disrupting sleep. An efficient HVAC system brings in clean air from outside and moves it throughout your home for good ventilation, ensuring fresh air and a good night’s sleep.
