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 affects your mood, but can also play a role in 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 more sleep isn’t just about getting to bed earlier, it also involves the creating 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 high, your body has a hard time regulating from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation advises a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for best sleep. A great way to end up with the ideal sleeping environment is to set your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will determine your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another advantage of this thermostat is that it will let you and your tech know when your system needs attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you de-stress. Better Bedtime Habits We understand how busy 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 determine your body’s internal clock. Establishing your own regular bedtime ritual could help your body get ready for bed. Find 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 rituals before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to head to bed and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our specialty.
