How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you regularly feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting enough sleep not only plays a role in your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that a lot of us could use an additional 60-90 minutes of sleep a night. So where does air conditioner service fit in to this? Getting additional sleep isn’t just about getting to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the best 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 high, your body has a hard time adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation suggests a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for ideal sleep. A great way to end up with the best 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 perk of this thermostat is that it will let you and your tech know when your system must have attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you unwind. Better Bedtime Habits We know how crazy life can be, but if possible, maintain a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to head to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help determine your body’s internal clock. Making your own regular 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 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 specialty.
