How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you routinely feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting quality sleep not only affects your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep a night. So where does air conditioner service fit in to this? Getting additional sleep isn’t just about heading to bed earlier, it also involves the setting the best environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article about the importance of temperature in 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 trouble regulating from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation advises a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for best sleep. A great way to have the best 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 advantage of this thermostat is that it will let you and your trusted professional know when your system needs attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you rest easy. Better Bedtime Habits We know how crazy life can be, but if possible, keep a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to get to bed and wake up around the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help reset your body’s internal clock. Establishing your own individual bedtime ritual could 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 things before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to get in bed and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our priority. We want to help keep you cozy day and night and offer you the peace of mind that comes from providing you the best service and best products.
