How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a great night’s sleep, you routinely 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 play a role in your health. Research has shown that the majority of us could use an extra 60-90 minutes of sleep each night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting extra sleep isn’t just about jumping in to bed earlier, it also involves the making the best 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 hard time regulating 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 have the ideal sleeping environment is to utilize 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 technician know when your system needs attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you rest easy. Better Bedtime Habits We understand how busy life can be, but if possible, maintain a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to go to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help determine your body’s internal clock. Establishing your own regular bedtime ritual could 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 shut down and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our specialty.
