When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you always 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 impact your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an extra 60-90 minutes of sleep a night. So where does air conditioner service fit in to this? Getting extra sleep isn’t just about heading to bed earlier, it also involves the setting the right 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 hot, your body has a hard time 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 achieve the perfect sleeping environment is to set your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will determine your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another perk of this thermostat is that it will let you and your technician know when your system requires attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you unwind.
Better Bedtime Habits
We understand how hectic life can be, but if possible, keep a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to head to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help determine your body’s internal clock.
Establishing your own regular bedtime ritual can help your body get ready for bed. Find a relaxing activity to help you unwind such as a warm bath, reading a book or listening to relaxing music. After you get in the habit of doing these rituals before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to get in bed and go to sleep.
