5 Tips for a good nights sleep - Solenco South Africa

5 Tips for a good nights sleep

We all enjoy the sunshine and a bit of heat, but not when it becomes unbearably hot and humid. Uncomfortable conditions can adversely effect levels of concentration, with discomfort at night being a major concern for many.

So how can you stay cool in the heatwave? With decades of experience in the air humidity industry, Meaco offer some top tips:

1. Prepare rooms in advance of daylight 

Keep windows, curtains and blinds closed throughout the day to stop the heat from the sun warming up the room.

2. Think before opening a window

Only open the window when the outside air temperature is cooler than the room temperature.  Allowing in hotter, more humid air is only going to make the problem worse.

3. Pre-Cool the Room

If you have a fan or air conditioner, switch this on a few hours before you go to bed.  Keep the bedroom door closed and the blinds and curtains closed to enable the appliance to effectively cool the room. Use an eco-mode if the appliance has one, so that it works as economically as possible.

4. As summer goes on you may need more pre-cooling

As we get further into summer you will have to run the fan or air conditioner for longer each night to get the room temperature down.  This is because the walls in the rooms warm up and act as a heat battery holding more and more heat within them, so the room takes longer to cool down.

5. Choose the right cooling fan or air conditioner


Meaco now have three cooling fans, the 360650  and 1056, to suit varying room sizes. The MeacoFan range is very low on energy consumption and extremely low on noise levels, partly down to its advanced DC technology, making them a popular choice for use in the bedroom. This also ensures lower running costs, and a better quality of fan.  All have been awarded a QuietMark in recognition of being amongst the quietest cooling fans tested to date. They have an Off Timer so the fans will turn off after a period of time, ensuring you don’t wake up feeling cold in the night, particularly useful in a child’s room. Attention to detail means that the fan does not bleep when the Off Timer turns it off, ensuring a cool and peaceful night’s sleep.
