How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you routinely feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting quality sleep not only impacts your mood, but can also impact your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an additional 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting extra sleep isn’t just about heading to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the ideal environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article about how temperature plays a role in sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to be reduced by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too hot, your body has a hard time changing from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for best sleep. A great way to end up with the ideal sleeping environment is to utilize your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will learn your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another bonus of this thermostat is that it will let you and your tech know when your system requires attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you de-stress. Better Bedtime Habits We understand how busy life can be, but if possible, maintain 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. Creating your own regular bedtime ritual could help your body get ready for bed. Find a relaxing activity to help you unwind such as a warm bath, reading a book or listening to relaxing music. After you get in the habit of doing these rituals before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to head to bed and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our priority.
