There is nothing that bothers myself and others more than super loud thunderstorms! Especially when they happen as I am trying to sleep.
Having thunderstorms with all the crash & bang sounds they make is almost just as poor as trying to sleep with construction going on outside.
However, I finally figured out a fantastic solution to this; And that was to turn on our central heating & air conditioning equipment to the fan setting & let it run all night. The sound of the fan & air coming out of the air vents of the central heating & air conditioning equipment can dull down the sound of the thunder just enough for myself and others to be able to sleep & not let it keep myself and others up or jolt myself and others awake! In the event the thunderstorm happens while extreme heat is going on in our un-even temperatures, & the central air conditioning is already running, I will pop on the floor fan in our study room on low to mix it with the air flow sound of the central heating & air conditioning equipment to drown out the noiseâ€¦ Because the air conditioning is not consistent prefer the fan blow setting on the temperature control is. But either way, this program & the floor fan are the ways I figured out to drown out the thunder when it storms so I can particularly get some sleep without it bothering me.I just thought I would share this little piece of information because it may be helpful to someone else having the same sleeping issues during thunderstorms.
