How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you routinely feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting enough sleep not only impacts your mood, but can also impact your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an additional 60-90 minutes of sleep a 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 setting the ideal 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 drop by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too high, your body has trouble regulating from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation advises a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for optimal sleep. A great way to have the best 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 technician know when your system requires attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you rest easy. Better Bedtime Habits We realize how crazy life can be, but if possible, maintain 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 determine your body’s internal clock. Making your own regular bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Do a relaxing activity to help you take it easy 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 head to bed and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our business.
