How Can Furnace Service Help You Sleep Better? 09/22/2017Sleep is so important to our health. Several factors can impact the amount and quality of sleep you obtain, but there’s one in particular that Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. can assist you with. The temperature of the room where you sleep has a lot to do with how fast you will fall asleep and the quality of your slumber. Noted by the National Sleep Foundation, “many sleep experts say that a cool room, somewhere around 65 degrees, makes for the best sleep, and research backs this notion.” If you’re needing furnace service, your sleep could be suffering, especially when the Scottsboro weather isn’t ideal or if your furnace is operating too often. That’s why our experts are here for you. With a tuned-up furnace, you’ll help ensure that your home is at the temperature you want it to be, and you’ll be able to rest. All you have to do is call to Southern Heating & Cooling Inc. and we’ll get your furnace service taken care of. We can also help you maximize your sleeping situation by installing a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat can be programmed and can even absorb your routine, so the temperature will be precisely where you like it, when you want it there. Most smart thermostats will even alert you when your furnace should be serviced, which helps prevent sudden breakdowns. Other Ways to Improve Your Sleep In addition to keeping your furnace maintained and finding a thermostat that works for your needs, here are a few other tips to help you get better sleep: Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day to keep your body in a routine. Try to do something that lowers stress before hitting bed. Read a book, take a bath, listen to soothing music. Do what works for you. Exercise frequently. Keep your bedroom dark and quiet. Avoid using electronics, doing work, or anything else distracting or likely stressful in your bedroom.
