How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a great night’s sleep, you routinely feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting good sleep not only plays a role in your mood, but can also play a role in your health. Research has shown that a lot of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep each night. So where does air conditioner service come in to this? Getting additional sleep isn’t just about getting to bed earlier, it also involves the making the ideal environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article about how temperature impacts sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to go down by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too hot, your body has trouble regulating from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation advises a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for optimal sleep. A great way to achieve the ideal sleeping environment is to take advantage of your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will figure out your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another advantage of this thermostat is that it will let you and your trusted professional know when your system needs attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you unwind. Better Bedtime Habits We know how busy life can be, but if possible, stick to a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to go to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help set your body’s internal clock. Making your own personal bedtime ritual can help your body get ready for bed. Find a relaxing activity to help you take it easy such as a warm bath, reading a book or listening to relaxing music. After you get in the habit of doing these activities before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to shut down and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our business.
