The hot and humid summertime conditions in Maryville, Tennessee, are pleasant to some and unbearable to others. One thing is true for everyone though: We all like to get a good night’s sleep and feel refreshed in the morning. The summer nights can make that harder than usual. Read on to learn how to improve your sleep on hot summer nights.

Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat for Better Climate Control

Making sure your home feels cool and comfortable at night is easy when you have a smart thermostat. Instead of needing to manually turn down the thermostat every night before bed, a smart thermostat does the job for you. With a smart thermostat, you can program a handful of schedules per day for every day of the week. You can also adjust the thermostat via an app on your smartphone, which eliminates the need to get out of bed to turn it down.

Invest in Indoor Air Quality Products for Better Breathing

In addition to cooler conditions, a good night’s sleep also requires clean and fresh air circulating around you. You also don’t want the air to feel stuffy. To achieve cleaner and less humid air, invest in an air cleaner and a dehumidifier.

A high-quality air cleaner can remove up to 99.98 percent of harmful particles floating around in your home. An energy recovery ventilator, on the other hand, exhausts stale indoor air while bringing in fresh and preconditioned outdoor air. Using these two IAQ solutions will ensure your home has the clean and fresh air you need for sound sleep.

To keep humidity under control in the summer, make sure you:

  • Use the exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathrooms.
  • Take colder and shorter showers – this also helps you sleep better!
  • Place a dehumidifier in your room and aim for 50 percent humidity.
