How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Sleep is very vital to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your disposition. That’s why it’s too bad that, according to research, most people require anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re most likely wondering what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies prove getting additional sleep has a lot to do with your environment, not just your bedtime. A well-maintained air conditioner is key to a comfortable environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature The Wall Street Journal posted an article clarifying how significant temperature is to sleep quality. To sleep, your body’s core temperature must decrease by two or three degrees. If you are too warm, your body fights to transition from being awake to being asleep. To help your body get to sleep and stay asleep, The National Sleep Foundation recommends your room temperature be between 60-67 F/15-19 C. To make achieving your optimal sleep environment effortless, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This instinctive thermostat will learn your habits and regulate itself to meet your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs updates. You’ll rest easy with that kind of peace of mind. Better Bedtime Habits Life can be frantic. Even so, when possible, set a bedtime routine. Going to bed and waking up around the same time each day—even on weekends—can help set your body’s internal clock. Plus, creating a daily bedtime routine will signal your body it’s time to get some sleep. Try running a warm bath, listening to calming music, or reading a book. Once you’ve established your bedtime habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
