If you want to be happy, healthy, and productive, ensuring you get a good night’s rest is one of the best steps you can take. We spend about a third of our lives sleeping, and there’s a good reason. Sleep provides us with the chance to process the lessons of the day, to relax our muscles, and to recharge. Unfortunately, the lack of comfort can affect how well we sleep.

The more comfortable your bedroom is, the better the rest you can get. When it comes to comfort, your HVAC system plays a big role. Therefore, it is important to know your options so you can get the best sleep possible. To help you do so, B&L Ott near Reading, Pennsylvania is here to help you learn your options and provide tips for maximizing your comfort.


If your bedroom is not a comfortable temperature, you may end up tossing and turning all night. Whether you are shivering or kicking the blankets out, trying to cope with the temperature can leave you sleepless. Then the next day you can’t’ focus and barely feel like moving. If this situation sounds familiar, check out the helpful systems B&L Ott can help you install below.

Programmable Thermostat

Heat rises. This means that if your bedroom is on the second floor, it is likely hotter than the rest of your Berks County home. Some people get around this issue by turning their thermostat down before bed. If you use this method and want to make doing so more convenient, consider having B&L Ott install a programmable thermostat.

With a programmable thermostat, all you have to do is set a schedule once and your system will continue to follow your instructions until you decide to change it again. You can tell your thermostat to automatically make your home cooler before you go to bed and have it warm up again right before you wake up. You can wake up comfortable and rested without having to fiddle with your thermostat.

Home Zoning

If you want to make controlling the temperature of your home even more convenient and save money at the same time, you will also want to consider asking B&L Ott to install a home zoning system. If you have a large home, you are likely paying to cool rooms that you may not even use that often. With a home zoning system, you can send the cool air directly where you want it to go.

A home zoning system uses dampers in your air ducts to divide your home into sections. You can section off your home almost any way you want. You can section it off by floors, by rooms, or by areas. This means if you want to cool off your second-floor bedroom without making the first floor colder and wasting energy, then you can do so. One of B&L Ott’s technicians can even help you determine the best way to section off your Berks County home.


Humidity can also affect how comfortable you feel. For instance, if the air is too humid, your skin will likely feel sticky and gross. On the other hand, when the humidity levels in your home are low, your skin will feel dry and itchy. Lack of humidity can also leave your family more susceptible to colds and the flu. The ideal humidity levels for your home is between 40-45%. If you feel that your home’s humidity levels are too low or too high, talk to B&L Ott about installing a humidifier or a dehumidifier.

Air Flow

Finally, the easier you can breathe, the better sleep you will get. Having good air flow can help you sleep better. To improve the air flow open your windows if it is nice out. If it is too hot or cold, use some fans to move the air around. Fans can also create white noise which many people find can help them fall asleep faster.
