AC takes a break every night; getting a window unit

I feel like my health is increasing every single day and I couldn’t be more proud of myself.

During this global pandemic I have been taking good care of my physical health, including starting a new exercise regime, reducing my drinking, and quitting smoking.

I’m looking and feeling really good everyday, but recently I have been suffering from low quality sleep. For a few nights, I thought that I was going to need to quit caffeine. Then, I realized that my insomnia was probably linked to poor indoor air quality at night. You see, as this pandemic has stretched on, the outdoor climate has changed drastically. We are experiencing regular summer temperatures as the months float by. As our outdoor air temperature has changed, our indoor air quality controls have also adapted. For the first time, we have been using the central cooling system that came installed in this rental home. It turns out, the AC unit is doing some funky stuff in the middle of the night and these air quality fluctuations have been messing with my sleep schedule. I noticed that no matter how we program the thermostat, our central cooling system seems to take a break from providing cool, fresh indoor air around 3 a.m. every night. I wake up and find that my room is filled with stagnant, muggy air. No matter how many fans are blowing, I can’t get back to sleep when I’m sweating in the humid and smelly air. Due to the quarantine, I haven’t been able to call out a central heating and cooling technician to inspect the AC unit. So I decided to purchase an AC window unit to resolve the problem on my own. Poor air quality be damned, I’m going to enjoy my healthy quarantine.
