How Air Conditioner Service May Help You Sleep Better09/08/2016 Relaxation is extremely 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 people demand anywhere from 60 – 90 minutes more sleep each night. You’re maybe wondering 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 significant 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 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 achieving your perfect sleep environment easy, try using a smart thermostat, like the iComfort® S30. This intuitive thermostat will learn your habits and control 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 recurring bedtime routine will tell your body it’s time to get some shut-eye. Try running a warm bath, listening to relaxing music, or reading a book. Once you’ve made your nighttime habits, your body will do its job and you’ll get quality sleep. We specialize in home comfort.
