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 good 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 the importance of temperature in sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to be reduced by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too hot, your body has a tough time adjusting 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 have the perfect sleeping environment is to take advantage of your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will learn your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another bonus of this thermostat is that it will let you and your trusted professional know when your system must have attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you unwind. Better Bedtime Habits We realize how crazy life can be, but if possible, stick to a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to get to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help reset your body’s internal clock. Creating your own individual bedtime ritual could help your body get ready for bed. Do 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 get in bed and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our priority.
