How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better

September 08, 2016

Rest is super crucial to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your attitude. That’s why it’s a bummer that, according to research, majority of people need anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re maybe contemplating what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies reflect getting more sleep has a lot to do with your environment, not just your bedtime. A well-maintained 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 struggles 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 perfect sleep environment simple, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This instinctive thermostat will learn your routine and control itself to meet your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs repairs. You’ll rest easy with that kind of peace of mind.

Better Bedtime Habits

Life can be hectic. Even so, when possible, keep a bedtime routine. Going to bed and waking up around the same time each day—even on weekends—can help set your body’s internal clock.

Plus, creating a recurring bedtime routine will tell your body it’s time to get some rest. Try taking a warm bath, listening to calming music, or reading a book. Once you’ve set your evening habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep.
