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 quality sleep not only affects your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an extra 60-90 minutes of sleep a night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting more sleep isn’t just about jumping in 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 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 perfect sleeping environment is to set your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will determine your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another advantage of this thermostat is that it will let you and your technician know when your system requires attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you rest easy. Better Bedtime Habits We understand how busy life can be, but if possible, keep a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to go to bed and wake up around the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help set your body’s internal clock. Establishing your own regular 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 get in bed and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our priority.
