How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you regularly 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 play a role in your health. Research has shown that the majority of us could use an additional 60-90 minutes of sleep each night. So where does air conditioner service fit in to this? Getting more sleep isn’t just about jumping in to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the ideal 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 go down by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too toasty, your body has trouble regulating from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for optimal sleep. A great way to achieve the perfect sleeping environment is to set your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will learn your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another bonus of this thermostat is that it will let you and your tech know when your system must have attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you unwind. Better Bedtime Habits We know how busy life can be, but if possible, maintain a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to get to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help reset your body’s internal clock. Establishing your own personal bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Find 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. Your home’s comfort is our priority.
