The Right Temperature for an Ideal Night’s Sleep

Do you crave a deep sleep that helps you to wake up feeling rested and refreshed first thing in the morning? Even if you aren’t a morning person, a full night of sound slumber can help to improve your mood in the morning. Unfortunately, many of us wake up at night because our thermostat is making us uncomfortable.

You might need to throw off those blankets and flip on the fan or you could be craving an extra comforter. It seems that finding a balance between these two extremes can be a challenge. Many people wonder if there’s an ideal temperature they should set their thermostat to in order to find a restful night’s sleep.

What is the right temperature for bedtime?

Experts usually recommend setting your thermostat a little lower than you usually would during the daytime. It turns out that light plays a much smaller role in helping you to fall asleep and stay asleep than the overall temperature in your home. In fact, it’s the temperature of your body that first cues your brain in that bedtime is rapidly approaching. A lower core body temperature is a signal to the brain that it’s almost time to wind down for the night.

If your body isn’t naturally lowering its core temperature in time to make you feel drowsy, the thermostat can help to facilitate this change. You might find that you start to feel much calmer in the evenings after you start to cool down your home.

The question is, how cool does your home need to be in order for these benefits to kick in? The exact number is sometimes debated, but many experts are pointing to numbers between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Settling for a number close to 65 should help you to see all of the restful benefits of this technique.

You might feel like that’s way too cold for you to be able to sleep comfortably through the night. However, you can take some steps to make yourself more comfortable while your body adjusts. For example, you may want to wear a thick pair of socks to bed or add an extra blanket just in case you’re too cold. Chances are that you won’t even notice once you’re blissfully asleep for the night.

Don’t go to extremes though. If you put the thermostat significantly lower than this, you won’t see any additional benefits. You’re more likely to have restless sleep when pushing your body into temperature ranges that aren’t comfortable or natural.

You can help your home to initiate this change all on its own each evening with a programmable thermostat that automatically switches the temperature at bedtime.

Impeccable Quality and Professionalism…

Had them install our system when building and multiple other contractors commented on the impeccable quality and professionalism of their work and staff. Worked with them on another building project and had equally great service and quality. Used them on a service call and Mitchell was very timely, efficient, and professional. Provided explanation in detail of what had happened and fixed it quickly. VERY impressed with this company and would recommend to ANYONE in need of a system install or repair service.

I Knew I Made the Right Choice from the Word Go

Kurtis Hall dealt square and honest every step of the way. His knowledge of our dated system, new product information, project scheduling and communication allowed for a seamless installation at our vacation property without my having to interrupt my work schedule to accommodate the project. And living over 5 hours away that was a huge help to me. I knew I made the right choice from the word go. Excellent job Mr Hall! Will recommend your company to others!
