Have you been experiencing the hot weather the UK has been blessed with recently?
With the sun set to blaze again on Friday, a lot of us are finding it uncomfortable to sleep at night.
That’s when air con is a Godsend.
If you’re struggling to get a good night’s sleep in the heat, you can wake up grouchy and end up having a less productive day.
But if you’ve got air conditioning, use it to help you get a good night’s sleep and wake up refreshed the next morning.
1. Keep a regular temperature
If it’s been really hot outside, it can be tempting to whack the air con up at night so you get to sleep faster. But you could end up making yourself ill with a summer cold if you suddenly change the temperature.
It’s far better to keep the temperature consistent at night. But if you’re not sure, lower the temperature gradually.
2. Use a timer
This one is more about saving money. Keeping your air con on all night is not only expensive but bad for the environment. Set a timer to be on for about half an hour. That should be long enough for you to get to sleep, and you could save hundreds of pounds a year.
3. Clean your air con filters
The filters in your system get rid of dust particles. But if you don’t clean them, they’ll spray dust everywhere. That’s not nice for when you’re sleeping.
Having air con with dirty filters could causing sneezing and other breathing and skin problems. Make sure you get a qualified professional to carry out a service on your air con every year to make sure everything is clean and working properly.
So if you’re lucky enough to have air con this summer, make sure you follow these 3 tips for a better night’s sleep. And if you don’t, the best solution is opening your windows and a fan.
