How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Sleep is extremely important to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your mood. That’s why it’s too bad that, according to research, most people demand anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re most likely thinking 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-run 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 fall by two or three degrees. If you are too warm, your body battles 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 effortless, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your habits and control itself to satisfy your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs updates. You’ll rest serenely with that kind of peace of mind. Better Bedtime Habits Life can be hectic. Even so, when possible, keep a bedtime procedure. Going to bed and waking up around the same time each day—even on weekends—can help set your body’s internal clock. Plus, establishing a recurring bedtime routine will tell your body it’s time to get some sleep. Try running a warm bath, listening to calming music, or reading a book. Once you’ve established your bedtime habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
