Will Sleeping with a Fan On Help Me Sleep Better?

Read Transcript

Hi, I'm Dr. Micheal Bruise, the sleep doctor. A lot of my patients ask me this question, will sleeping with the fan on let me sleep better? And the answer is probably so. Having a fan on will do several different things. Number one, it keeps the air circulating which is definitely good for overall respiration.

Number two, it may also have a cooling effect, remember most people sleep better in the cooler environment. And number three, the fan provides a light noise which will drown out other noisy sounds which could waken you throughout the evening.
