Sleep is very important to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your attitude. That’s why it’s a bummer that, according to research, many people need anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re most likely wondering what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies prove getting additional sleep has a lot to do with your environment, not just your bedtime. A well-maintained air conditioner is key to a comfortable environment.
Setting the Perfect Temperature
The Wall Street Journal posted an article
clarifying how imperative 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 fights 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 achieving your optimal sleep environment easy, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your routine and regulate itself to meet your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs repairs. You’ll rest serenely with that kind of peace of mind.
Better Bedtime Habits
Life can be crazy. Even so, when reasonable, set a bedtime schedule. 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 daily bedtime routine will signal your body it’s time to get some sleep. Try having a warm bath, listening to relaxing music, or reading a book. Once you’ve made your bedtime habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep.
