I woke up in the middle of the night, completely drenched in sweat and felt a bit nauseous. I know that this has to do with the terrible heat that we have been experiencing of late and I am over it!. This would be the second time this week, in case you were wondering, that my sleep was completely disrupted and ruined by house being hot and stuffy. I’m so tired from lack of sleep that I think it is actually making me sick. I can’t see straight, I can’t get any work done with my stomach lurching all day long. I desperately need my HVAC system to work more effectively and I need it to do that now! You see, it is August, and we expect to have hot days but we have usually had it cool down in the evening. I understand that I live in the south, and we have a need to run the air conditioning twenty four hours a day, however, I do enjoy when we get a break in the overnight temperatures and I can simply open the windows. We have central air conditioning that seems to work well enough on most days, but at night, I swear it feels like it goes to sleep too somedays. We have tried having the system professionally tested, the HVAC ducts cleaned, and even replaced the thermostat so I could change the air temperature from bed. Nothing has worked. I think the system in our home is just not powerful enough to deal with the excessive heat we have been having of late. We decided to supplement it with a window unit to try and make sleeping more tolerable. I really hope it helps!
