A good night’s sleep is worth its weight in gold.

With roasting highs and off-the-charts humidity, summer can be an endurance challenge for even the strongest of sleepers. Allergies, noisy air conditioners, and out-of-control temperatures all conspire to steal your precious shut-eye. Let’s face it: Drowning your sorrows in coffee only works for so long. Feeling groggy and unrested isn’t exactly a recipe for a day of summertime fun.

Some Like it Hot—Personalized Climate Zones

According to studies by the National Sleep Foundation, the ideal sleeping temperature for human beings ranges from 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit. That being said, not everybody fits into this prescribed range, which is more of a rough guide than anything. Some like it hot, and some like it a bit cooler.  

One of the great things about a ductless system is that it allows for multiple, independent climate zones. Each indoor unit has its own independent interface. This way, everyone’s happy. With remote control access, you can dial in your preferred temperature without leaving the comfy contours of your bed. 

Sock it to Seasonal Allergies

There are few things worse than not being able to breathe at night. A stuffy nose, swollen throat, and chest congestion make falling asleep a frustrating chore. For some, allergies also aggravate underlying sleep apnea, further reducing sleep time and quality of life. 

Modern cooling and heating solutions, such as Mitsubishi Electric’s ductless-split designs, come with built-in allergen filtration systems. Removing annoying allergens like dust, pet dander, tree and grass pollen, a ductless system can help you take down allergies for good.

Whisper-quiet Operation

If you’re a light sleeper, an ear-splitting cooling and heating solution probably won’t jive with your lifestyle. Traditional systems, such as forced-air units and window-mounted air conditioners, are known to disrupt sleep as they cycle on and off during the night. Sleeping next to a clanging compressor or a blower fan on high isn’t exactly soothing.

Sensitive sleepers are probably best off with a ductless solution, which offloads the compressor outdoors, away from your bedroom. Seamless, whisper-quiet operation is the result—that and more rest, of course!     


If heat, allergies, and noisy air conditioners are keeping you up at night, maybe it’s time to invest in a smarter cooling and heating solution. After all: A good night’s sleep is worth its weight in gold.
