How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When 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 play a role in your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting extra sleep isn’t just about getting to bed earlier, it also involves the setting the best 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 ideal sleep. A great way to achieve the ideal 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 advantage of this thermostat is that it will let you and your technician know when your system needs attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you de-stress. Better Bedtime Habits We realize how hectic life can be, but if possible, maintain 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 could help your body get ready for bed. Do 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 activities before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to shut down and go to sleep. Your home’s comfort is our specialty. We want to help keep you comfortable day and night and give you the peace of mind that comes from offering you the best service and best products.
