The Key to a Good Night’s Sleep? Your Thermostat!

06.21.18

You toss and turn, throwing blankets off, feeling sweaty – you just can’t get comfortable and you get up, once again, to adjust the thermostat. Sound familiar? Did you know it’s actually been proven that you sleep better at night in a cool room?

Studies have shown that sleeping in a cold room can help with insomnia and helps increase metabolism.

But what is the optimal temp for a good night’s rest? According to the National Sleep Foundation, 65 degrees is optimal. Other sources say between 60 and 68 degrees will help ensure your body cools down properly – which is good news for those of us with spouses who run warmer or colder. Find a temp between 60 and 68 you can agree on and set the thermostat.

If you still wake up hot and sweaty, though, or notice your thermostat is set on 67 but the temperature is actually reading 73 (yikes!), give us a call. We are available 24/7 and can help you get back to a good night’s sleep!
