When you’re not getting a great night’s sleep, you routinely feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting enough sleep not only affects your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that a lot of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep each night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting additional sleep isn’t just about heading to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the right environment.
Setting the Perfect Temperature
A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article
about how temperature impacts sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to drop by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too high, your body has a hard time adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation
suggests a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for best sleep.
A great way to end up with the perfect sleeping environment is to set your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will figure out your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another bonus of this thermostat is that it will let you and your technician know when your system needs attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you de-stress.
Better Bedtime Habits
We understand how hectic life can be, but if possible, keep a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to get to bed and wake up close to the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help determine your body’s internal clock.
Creating your own personal bedtime ritual can help your body get ready for bed. Do a relaxing activity to help you wind down such as a warm bath, reading a book or listening to relaxing music. After you get in the habit of doing these activities before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to head to bed and go to sleep.
