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 good sleep not only affects your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that the majority of us could use an extra 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting extra sleep isn’t just about getting to bed earlier, it also involves the setting the ideal environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article about how temperature plays a role in sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to be reduced by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too high, your body has a tough time changing from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation suggests a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for ideal sleep. A great way to end up with the perfect sleeping environment is to take advantage of your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will determine 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 requires attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you de-stress. Better Bedtime Habits We realize how crazy life can be, but if possible, stick to 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 determine your body’s internal clock. Creating your own individual bedtime ritual can help your body get ready for bed. Discover a relaxing activity to help you take it easy 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 specialty. We want to help keep you cozy day and night and give you the peace of mind that comes from offering you the best service and best products.
