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 good sleep not only affects your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that the majority of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep a night. So where does air conditioner service fit in to this? Getting more sleep isn’t just about getting to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the ideal 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 drop by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too toasty, your body has a tough time regulating from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation suggests a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for ideal sleep. A great way to end up with the best sleeping environment is to utilize your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will figure out your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another advantage of this thermostat is that it will let you and your trusted professional know when your system must have attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you de-stress. Better Bedtime Habits We know how hectic life can be, but if possible, stick to a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to head to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help set your body’s internal clock. Making your own individual bedtime ritual will 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.
