How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better

September 08, 2016

When 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 good sleep not only impacts your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an extra 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting extra sleep isn’t just about heading to bed earlier, it also involves the making the ideal 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 go down by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too toasty, your body has trouble adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation suggests a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for best sleep.

A great way to end up with 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 perk 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 understand how crazy life can be, but if possible, maintain a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to head to bed and wake up close to the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help reset your body’s internal clock.

Making your own regular bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Discover 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 activities before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to shut down and go to sleep.
