How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a great night’s sleep, you regularly feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting quality sleep not only plays a role in your mood, but can also play a role in your health. Research has shown that a lot of us could use an additional 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service fit in to this? Getting more sleep isn’t just about getting to bed earlier, it also involves the making the ideal 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 go down by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too high, your body has a hard time adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for optimal sleep. A great way to have the best sleeping environment is to take advantage of your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will learn your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another advantage 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 realize how crazy life can be, but if possible, stick to a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to head to bed and wake up around the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help reset your body’s internal clock. Creating your own personal bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Find a relaxing activity to help you wind down 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. Your home’s comfort is our priority. We want to help keep you cozy day and night and give you the peace of mind that comes from providing you the best service and best products.
