How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Rest is extremely important to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your disposition. That’s why it’s unfortunate that, according to research, many people 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-managed 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 achieving your perfect sleep environment simple, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This instinctive thermostat will learn your routine and regulate itself to address 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 frantic. Even so, when realistic, 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, keeping a recurring bedtime routine will advise your body it’s time to get some sleep. Try taking a warm bath, listening to calming music, or reading a book. Once you’ve set your nighttime habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
