How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better

September 08, 2016

Sleep is very crucial to your overall well-being. It affects everything from your health to your attitude. That’s why it’s too bad that, according to research, most individuals require 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 additional 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 important 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 ideal sleep environment easy, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your practices and adjust itself to address your home comfort needs. It will also notify you—and your technician—when your system needs maintenance. You’ll rest serenely with that kind of peace of mind.

Better Bedtime Habits

Life can be crazy. Even so, when realistic, set a bedtime routine. 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 recurring bedtime routine will signal your body it’s time to get some rest. Try running a warm bath, listening to calming music, or reading a book. Once you’ve established your evening habits, your body will do its duty and you’ll get quality sleep.
