What’s The Ideal Sleep Temperature?

For some sleeping is no problem, for others it’s frustrating the arduous. Before you rush to the doctor to get a prescription for sleeping pills consider what your ideal sleep temperature is. Finding your ideal sleep temperature can be one of the best sleep aids out there, so setting the thermostat in your home or bedroom to accommodate that can be a game changer.

Typically, the ideal temperature for sleeping ranges between 68 and 72 degrees, which is a little cooler than you might want throughout the day. In the summer sleeping can be a challenge, especially if you don’t have air conditioning. Essentially, you can always pull up your blankets if you’re too cold, but there are only so many items of clothing you can strip off if you get too hot.

Achieve Your Sleep Temperature With Air Conditioning

The easiest way to get your bedroom the right sleep temperature in the summer is with air conditioning. Whether you have a window unit, a ductless air conditioner, or a central air conditioning system it’s important to adjust the temperature properly.

Proper maintenance of your air conditioning system is also essential for it to accurately achieve your sleep temperature. Regularly changing the filter and having regular maintenance scheduled with a professional HVAC technician are the best way to keep it working efficiently and properly. The best time to take care of your HVAC and air conditioner maintenance is in the spring, before you place heavy usage and loads on your air conditioning system. You filter should be checked at least once a month, especially in the summer when it can be dustier than usual in your home.

 

Fans For Your Sleep Temperature

Ceiling fans can also help keep your bedroom cool. In the summer ensure that they’re rotating in a counterclockwise direction in order to produce a cooling effect. Additionally, floor and desk fans should be rotating and not just pointed directly at one place. This circulates the air in your bedroom even more and evenly distributes cooling throughout.

Overall, a properly maintained air conditioner is the best way to achieve a nice cool sleeping temperature. For more information about air conditioner maintenance, installation or repairs contact Novel Care today: 416-921-0000.
