How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Rest is very vital to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your attitude. That’s why it’s unfortunate that, according to research, most humans need anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re maybe thinking what this has to do with air conditioner service. Studies prove getting additional sleep has a lot to do with your environment, not just your bedtime. A well-run air conditioner is key to a comfortable environment. Setting the Perfect Temperature The Wall Street Journal posted an article supporting how important temperature is to sleep quality. To sleep, your body’s core temperature must decrease by two or three degrees. If you are too warm, your body battles 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 reaching your perfect sleep environment simple, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your practices and regulate itself to address your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs repairs. You’ll rest serenely with that kind of peace of mind. Better Bedtime Habits Life can be frantic. Even so, when possible, keep a bedtime schedule. Going to bed and waking up around the same time each day—even on weekends—can help set your body’s internal clock. Plus, keeping a recurring bedtime routine will tell your body it’s time to get some rest. Try having a warm bath, listening to peaceful music, or reading a book. Once you’ve established your evening habits, your body will do its thing and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
