How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a good night’s sleep, you always 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 a lot of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting additional sleep isn’t just about heading 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 hot, your body has a hard time adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation advises a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for ideal sleep. A great way to achieve the best sleeping environment is to utilize 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 de-stress. Better Bedtime Habits We understand how hectic 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 set your body’s internal clock. Establishing your own personal bedtime ritual can 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 activities before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to get in bed and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our priority. We want to help keep you comfy day and night and provide you the peace of mind that comes from offering you the best service and best products.
