How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you regularly feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting enough sleep not only plays a role in your mood, but can also impact your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service fit in to this? Getting more sleep isn’t just about jumping in to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the best 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 go down by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too toasty, your body has a hard time regulating from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for optimal sleep. A great way to end up with the ideal sleeping environment is to take advantage of your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will determine 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 unwind. Better Bedtime Habits We realize how crazy 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. Creating your own regular bedtime ritual could 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.
