How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better

September 08, 2016

When 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 enough sleep not only impacts your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that a lot of us could use an additional 60-90 minutes of sleep a night. So where does air conditioner service fit in to this? Getting more 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 how temperature plays a role 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 trouble adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation suggests a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for best sleep.

A great way to have the ideal 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 bonus of this thermostat is that it will let you and your technician know when your system must have attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you rest easy.

Better Bedtime Habits

We understand how busy life can be, but if possible, stick to a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to go to bed and wake up close to the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help determine your body’s internal clock.

Establishing your own personal bedtime ritual could help your body get ready for bed. Do 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 shut down and go to sleep.
