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 affects your mood, but can also play a role in your health. Research has shown that a lot of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting additional sleep isn’t just about jumping in to bed earlier, it also involves the making the right 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 toasty, your body has a tough time adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for ideal sleep. A great way to have the perfect 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 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 understand how hectic life can be, but if possible, keep a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to get to bed and wake up close to the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help set your body’s internal clock. Establishing your own regular bedtime ritual can help your body get ready for bed. Do a relaxing activity to help you wind down such as a warm bath, reading a book or listening to relaxing music. After you get in the habit of doing these things before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to get in bed and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our specialty.
