Many people believe they’ll sleep better in a warm, cozy room — in fall and winter, at least. And this would seem to make sense. But, according to the experts, this is simply not the case. If you have trouble relaxing and feeling comfortable enough to fall asleep — or stay asleep — at night, your thermostat settings could be the culprit. You may be setting the nighttime temperature of your bedroom too high for optimal rest and relaxation. Here are some ways the right HVAC control can help you achieve a better, more restful night’s sleep.
Sleep experts place the most comfortable temperature range for sleep somewhere between 60 degrees F and 67 degrees F. You’ll need to experiment to find your optimal range, but, fortunately, once you’ve found it, modern HVAC technology is here to help you maintain it. When heating and cooling your Sarasota home, you can pre-program your preferred nighttime temperature by using one of today’s convenient programmable temperature-control technologies. Some models even take advantage of smart HVAC technology to let you adjust the setting remotely — from on or off the premises — helping you make sure the temperature is just right for maximum comfort.
According to the U.S. Dept. of Energy, turning your thermostat back just 7 to 10 degrees for 8 hours each day can actually help you save up to 10 percent per year on cooling and heating your home. And that’s another good way today’s technology can help you sleep easier at night. Just knowing you’re saving money while providing a physical environment that’s more conducive to relaxation will free your mind from the worry that can also lead to insomnia.
