Staying Cool With Your Air Conditioner in Your Bedroom

Summer can make the air humid and uncomfortable, but that doesn’t mean you have to swelter at home. Your HVAC system is designed to ensure your comfort in every room, including your bedroom. However, you can maximize this to get the best sleep by using these tips to keep it cooler.

Close Your Blinds, Drapes, or Shades

Heat seeps into your bedroom through the windows, even at nighttime. Regardless of whether you use blinds, drapes, shades, or curtains, you should keep them closed or down to keep outside light from getting into the room. Even if the temperature drops a few degrees, keeping the area dark while running your air conditioner can help keep you cooler.

Check Your Windows and Seal Air Leaks

When our HVAC technicians perform air conditioning installation services, they ensure the proper fit. However, you must also do your part. Check your windows to make sure they’re fully closed and look for air leaks around them. Even the tiniest crack can lead to cool air escaping and hot air coming into your bedroom. If you have air leaks, they can be sealed with caulk and weather stripping.

Keep the Door Closed

Keeping your bedroom door closed while running your air conditioning can help you stay cooler. This can help mitigate any temperature variations that can disrupt the air in your space. If you have any unused rooms, close those doors as well.

Combine Your AC With Fans

Running a fan along with your air conditioner can help your bedroom feel comfortably cool. If the vents are across the room from your bed, this combination can push the air from your AC toward you. A ceiling fan running counterclockwise is best, but an oscillating device or box fan set up in front of your bed can also work.

Turn Down Your Thermostat

Turning down your thermostat can help you cool your bedroom faster with your air conditioner. Once you’ve achieved the temperature you want or when you’re about to turn in for the night, turn it back up a few degrees to save energy. You can also get a programmable thermostat that can automatically adjust the temperature while you’re asleep.

Unplug Unused Electronics

Electricity generates heat, so if you have many devices plugged in during the summer, it can make your bedroom feel warmer, even when the AC is on. Unplug anything not being used to get the most out of your air conditioning unit.
