How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you always feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting quality sleep not only plays a role in your mood, but can also play a role in your health. Research has shown that a lot of us could use an extra 60-90 minutes of sleep a night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting additional sleep isn’t just about heading 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 plays a role in 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 a hard time changing from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation advises a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for best sleep. A great way to achieve the ideal 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 trusted professional know when your system requires attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you rest easy. Better Bedtime Habits We understand how hectic life can be, but if possible, keep a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to get to bed and wake up around the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help reset your body’s internal clock. Creating your own personal bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Find a relaxing activity to help you wind down such as a warm bath, reading a book or listening to relaxing music. After you get in the habit of doing these things 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.
