Cooling Comfort

Learn how a quality air conditioning system can help you sleep. 

Air conditioning is essential to the home for a number of reasons, including comfort. In the summer months, temperatures rise, leaving us sweating and feeling miserable in our homes if the air conditioner isn’t working well or the home doesn’t have one.  Thankfully, we have the ability to install quality air conditioning units in the home to provide the comfort we need to keep cool in the summer heat. For many homeowners, the air conditioning system of the home may need to be replaced or maintained in order to provide quality comfort. A simple way to assess your comfort is how you feel at night. Do you find that you get hot once you hit the sheets? If so, it might be time to have your air conditioner looked at by an experienced technician or a new unit installed in your home.

The Importance of Cooling Comfort and Sleep

Sleep and staying cool go hand in hand, especially during the summer months. One can be completely miserable if the temperatures continue to rise and the air conditioning system cannot keep up, especially at night when trying to sleep. When going to bed, you want to be comfortable and not feel sticky or sweaty. When you get too hot, you may have difficulty sleeping. Staying cool actually helps to regulate your sleep. If you find that you are not staying cool and are constantly tossing and turning due to too much heat in your home, it’s time to have your air conditioning system evaluated.

A New Air Conditioning Unit

An air conditioning system has an average life span of 10 to 20 years, depending on the unit type and how well the system is maintained. If you care for a unit with proper maintenance and check-ups, then you can use the same system year after year, keeping your home cool in the hot summer months. However, once a unit reaches a certain age, it may not have the ability to cool the home like it did in the past. Over time, an air conditioning system loses its energy efficiency and can no longer keep up with rising temperatures. A new air conditioner can easily provide cooling comfort, with less energy used in the process.

Have your existing air conditioning system evaluated by the experts to see just how your system is functioning. Recommendations can be made as to what unit type will work best in your home and an estimate provided by the technician inspecting the system. Once you make a decision on a new unit, you will find that your home is cooler and you are spending less money each month to stay comfortable. Be sure and schedule regular maintenance for your new unit so that it will stay in top condition year after year.
