How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Relaxation is extremely important to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your attitude. That’s why it’s unfortunate that, according to research, many people demand anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re most likely contemplating what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies show getting better 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 explaining how significant 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 achieving your optimal sleep environment easy, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your habits and adjust itself to meet your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs repairs. You’ll rest serenely with that kind of peace of mind. Better Bedtime Habits Life can be hectic. Even so, when reasonable, stick to 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, creating a consistent bedtime routine will signal your body it’s time to get some shut-eye. Try running a warm bath, listening to calming music, or reading a book. Once you’ve established your nighttime habits, your body will do its job and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
