How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Sleep is super important to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your disposition. That’s why it’s unfortunate that, according to research, majority of individuals need anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re most likely thinking what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies prove getting more sleep has a lot to do with your environment, not just your bedtime. A well-maintained air conditioner is key to a comfortable environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature The Wall Street Journal posted an article supporting how imperative temperature is to sleep quality. To sleep, your body’s core temperature must drop by two or three degrees. If you are too warm, your body fights to transition from being awake to being asleep. To help your body get to sleep and stay asleep, The National Sleep Foundation recommends your room temperature be between 60-67 F/15-19 C. To make achieving your optimal sleep environment easy, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your routine and regulate itself to satisfy your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs maintenance. You’ll rest calmly with that kind of peace of mind. Better Bedtime Habits Life can be crazy. Even so, when realistic, set a bedtime procedure. Going to bed and waking up around the same time each day—even on weekends—can help set your body’s internal clock. Plus, creating a daily bedtime routine will tell your body it’s time to get some rest. Try having a warm bath, listening to calming music, or reading a book. Once you’ve established your nighttime habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
