A good night’s sleep is essential to set the tone for a productive day ahead and finding the ideal sleep temperature is crucial to ensure this. As we’re approaching the cold winter months those thick blankets and fuzzy socks might not always cut it, and that’s where your A/C comes to the rescue.
Sleeping in a cold room makes it harder to fall and stay asleep, disrupting your sleep cycle and leaving you fatigued throughout the day. So, what’s the ideal temperature for a good night’s sleep? And how can you keep your bedroom warm to feel the full effect of your A/C?
The Importance of Finding the Right Temperature
Finding the right temperature during the winter months is ideal for several reasons. Numerous health consequences can arise from sleeping in a room that is too cold, such as sleeping problems and vulnerability to viruses. Moreover, cold temperatures can lead to muscle pain, overeating and trouble focusing.
In order to ensure that your sleeping temperatures are optimal, experts suggest a temperature between 18-20°C. It is also suggested to keep A/C fan speeds at medium or low. This is because at these levels, warm air can be circulated around the room without creating a draft.
