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 quality sleep not only affects your mood, but can also impact your health. Research has shown that the majority of us could use an extra 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 right environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article about how temperature impacts sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to drop by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too toasty, your body has a hard 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 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 tech know when your system must have attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you unwind. Better Bedtime Habits We realize how hectic life can be, but if possible, keep a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to head to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help determine your body’s internal clock. Creating your own regular bedtime ritual could 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 shut down and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our business.
