How to use air conditioning to sleep well at night
Maintaining a moderate temperature, preventing the wind from blowing directly on the body, choosing a silent mode of operation… help users sleep soundly and wake up refreshed.
Deep and sufficient sleep helps boost immunity, improve memory, creative thinking, and work efficiency. The environment around the bedroom is very important for a restful sleep. Aside from proper mattresses, blankets, and pillows, many people cannot sleep without air conditioning. dr Truong Huu Khanh, former Head of Department of Infections – Neurology, Children’s Hospital 1, Ho Chi Minh City, shared a lecture on VnExpress fan page on how to use air conditioning for health in March, saying: In the heat . weather, many children can sleep well if the bedroom is well air-conditioned.
According to Mr. Nguyen Quoc Anh, Senior Manager – Technical Support Department – Daikin Vietnam, the 4 factors to consider when choosing and using an air conditioner for comfort and good sleep are products that do not make noise, products that do not dry cause skin . Throat dry skin, the room air should be fresh and the temperature stable.
Here are some tips on using your air conditioner for a good night’s sleep, as recommended by refrigeration experts:
Silent mode settings
One factor that contributes to a good night’s sleep is rest. In fact, many people find it difficult to fall asleep due to the noise from household appliances. In order for the air conditioner to work well, users should pay attention to the installation location of the machine. If the outdoor unit or indoor unit is mounted on a wall that is too thin or the wall is made of materials susceptible to vibration such as plaster or corrugated iron, loud noise will be generated while the machine is running. To avoid this, a rubber gasket can be placed under the feet of the outdoor unit to prevent vibration. The outdoor unit and the indoor unit should not be installed too close to each other (pipe length is less than 2.5m), so that the two units do not resonate and generate noise.
The fan is the part that makes a lot of noise when the air conditioning is running, especially on older machines. However, you can override this noise by pressing the fan button on the remote control and selecting the lowest or automatic fan mode, the noise will be significantly reduced. Consumers can find information on the noise level of the machine in the product data sheet. When the air conditioner is running, the outdoor unit usually makes more noise than the indoor unit. If the room is well soundproofed, with the door closed we will not hear the sounds of the outdoor unit in the room. The noise from outdoor units is usually around 40 – 50dBA, the noise from indoor units is lower and can be as high as 18dBA, such as: B. Daikin FTKY25VVMV 1HP air conditioner.
Choose the right temperature
Many sleepers wake up in the middle of the night feeling too hot or too cold. A stable temperature is also an important factor in deep sleep. You should choose an inverter air conditioner to keep the room temperature stable. In particular, after the set temperature is reached, the inverter technology allows the machine to continue working with small capacity to maintain the room temperature, and the air conditioner without this technology will turn off automatically and will not start again until the actual room temperature has risen. 2 – 3◦C. Therefore, the operating mechanism of the mono-machine causes the room temperature to rise and fall unevenly, causing discomfort. In addition, users can opt for inverter air conditioners with Swing compressor technology, which helps reduce operating noise and ensure a restful sleep.
You can also activate sleep mode to adjust your body temperature to room temperature while you sleep. Normally, the air conditioner will rise 2◦C from the preset temperature in one hour, which helps users avoid cold. and save electricity. In sleep mode, the device works progressively quieter, allowing users to get a good night’s sleep.
In the climate of Vietnam, air conditioning experts recommend operating the machine at a temperature between 25 and 27 °C for comfort and energy saving.
Prevent the wind and cold from blowing directly on you.
according to dr Truong Huu Khanh, turning on the air conditioner and fan should not hit the person directly to maintain health, especially around the nose and throat to avoid respiratory inflammation and dry skin.
In addition to the remote swing button to reverse the wind direction and blow cold air up and down, many air conditioners have improved the indoor unit mask so that the cold air does not hit the user directly. For example, in Daikin air conditioners, the Coanda mask design helps direct airflow across the ceiling, distributing it evenly throughout the room and cooling every corner of the room. This makes the user feel comfortable and calm while the airways are protected.
Choose products that integrate health protection technologies
Health protection technologies will bring convenience to users. In comfortable conditions, users also fall asleep easily and sleep better.
Vietnam has a tropical climate, the humidity is mostly above 80%, which makes the skin greasy, scaly and moldy. Turning on the air conditioning can help “suck” moisture out of the air, but this can lead to dry skin and throat and possibly even respiratory infections. Many consumers have overcome this situation by putting a container with water in the room or using a nebulizer. Recently, air conditioner manufacturers have added humidity balancing modes. For example, the Daikin brand with hybrid cooling technology. Consequently, the machine is integrated with a sensor to monitor the humidity in the room to simultaneously regulate the temperature and humidity and maintain the ideal humidity level with the user’s health at 55% – 65% and protect the nose. It’s not the neck. dry and non-greasy skin and helps maintain optimal moisture levels.
Fresh air also contributes to a more comfortable sleep. With air pollution on the rise, most brands have added air filtering features to their products, such as: B. Dust filter, PM2.5 filter, biological filter, which can deodorize and remove many allergens such as pollen, dust mite, etc. Dust, pet hair, mold… and inhibit some bacteria in the indoor unit. Last year, Daikin introduced the most unique Streamer technology that destroys viruses, bacteria and molds in the indoor unit, based on the plasma discharge mechanism, which is 1,000 times faster than traditional discharge and generates 1,000 times more energy than glow discharge. According to tests conducted between 2004 and 2018 at the Japan Food Research Institute and Okayama University of Science, the bactericidal effectiveness of Streamer technology is 99.9%. The company also applies Mold Proof technology to prevent mold from sticking to the inside of the device.
Clean the air conditioner regularly
During operation, the air conditioner is often filled with dust, which reduces cooling capacity and air freshness. Refrigeration experts recommend users to remove the dust filter from the indoor unit every 2 weeks. An intensive cleaning of the machine must be carried out every 6 months to ensure fresh air.
Daikin Vietnam mobile app allows consumers across the country to easily order air conditioning maintenance services from real Daikin technicians. The prices of the service packages are displayed transparently in the application. All maintenance cleaning packages spray hot water to kill bacteria that build up on the indoor unit and provide users with fresh air.
