How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Sleep is very important to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your mood. That’s why it’s a bummer that, according to research, majority of humans demand anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re most likely contemplating what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies prove getting better sleep has a lot to do with your environment, not just your bedtime. A well-run air conditioner is key to a comfortable environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature The Wall Street Journal posted an article explaining how important temperature is to sleep quality. To sleep, your body’s core temperature must decrease by two or three degrees. If you are too warm, your body struggles to transition from being awake to being asleep. To help your body get to sleep and stay asleep, The National Sleep Foundation recommends your room temperature be between 60-67 F/15-19 C. To make reaching your optimal sleep environment simple, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your routine and adjust itself to address your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs maintenance. You’ll rest easy with that kind of peace of mind. Better Bedtime Habits Life can be crazy. Even so, when possible, stick to a bedtime procedure. Going to bed and waking up around the same time each day—even on weekends—can help set your body’s internal clock. Plus, keeping a consistent bedtime routine will advise your body it’s time to get some sleep. Try taking a warm bath, listening to calming music, or reading a book. Once you’ve made your bedtime habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
