How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a good night’s sleep, you regularly feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting quality sleep not only plays a role in your mood, but can also impact your health. Research has shown that a lot of us could use an additional 60-90 minutes of sleep each night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting more sleep isn’t just about heading to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the ideal environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article about how temperature plays a role in sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to go down by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too high, your body has a tough time adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation suggests 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 take advantage of your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will figure out your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another advantage 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 know how busy life can be, but if possible, maintain a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to head to bed and wake up around the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help determine your body’s internal clock. Making your own individual bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Discover 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 activities 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.
