Sleep is super vital to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your attitude. That’s why it’s a bummer that, according to research, many humans require anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re most likely contemplating what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies show getting better sleep has a lot to do with your environment, not just your bedtime. A well-maintained air conditioner is key to a comfortable environment.
Setting the Perfect Temperature
The Wall Street Journal posted an article
clarifying how important temperature is to sleep quality. To sleep, your body’s core temperature must drop by two or three degrees. If you are too warm, your body battles to transition from being awake to being asleep. To help your body get to sleep and stay asleep, The National Sleep Foundation
recommends your room temperature be between 60-67 F/15-19 C.
To make attaining your ideal sleep environment easy, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This instinctive thermostat will learn your habits and control itself to meet your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs updates. You’ll rest serenely with that kind of peace of mind.
Better Bedtime Habits
Life can be frantic. Even so, when realistic, set a bedtime routine. Going to bed and waking up around the same time each day—even on weekends—can help set your body’s internal clock.
Plus, creating a daily bedtime routine will advise your body it’s time to get some sleep. Try having a warm bath, listening to relaxing music, or reading a book. Once you’ve established your nighttime habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep.
