How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Relaxation is extremely crucial to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your attitude. That’s why it’s too bad that, according to research, many humans demand anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re maybe wondering what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies show getting additional sleep has a lot to do with your environment, not just your bedtime. A well-run air conditioner is key to a comfortable environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature The Wall Street Journal posted an article clarifying how imperative temperature is to sleep quality. To sleep, your body’s core temperature must drop by two or three degrees. If you are too warm, your body fights to transition from being awake to being asleep. To help your body get to sleep and stay asleep, The National Sleep Foundation recommends your room temperature be between 60-67 F/15-19 C. To make reaching your optimal sleep environment effortless, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your habits and control itself to address your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs updates. You’ll rest calmly with that kind of peace of mind. Better Bedtime Habits Life can be hectic. Even so, when possible, set a bedtime schedule. Going to bed and waking up around the same time each day—even on weekends—can help set your body’s internal clock. Plus, keeping a daily bedtime routine will tell your body it’s time to get some sleep. Try having a warm bath, listening to relaxing music, or reading a book. Once you’ve set your nighttime habits, your body will do its job and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
