How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a good night’s sleep, you regularly 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 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 heading to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the right 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 drop by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too high, your body has trouble adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for optimal sleep. A great way to end up with the best sleeping environment is to set your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will figure out your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another perk 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 de-stress. Better Bedtime Habits We know how crazy life can be, but if possible, stick to a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to head to bed and wake up close to the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help determine your body’s internal clock. Establishing your own personal bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Discover 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 specialty.
