How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you regularly feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting good sleep not only impacts your mood, but can also impact 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 extra sleep isn’t just about jumping in to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the best environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article about how temperature impacts 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 regulating 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 utilize your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will figure out your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another advantage of this thermostat is that it will let you and your trusted professional know when your system must have attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you de-stress. Better Bedtime Habits We know 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. Creating your own regular bedtime ritual can 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.
