Best Temperature For Sleeping

Do you find yourself tossing and turning more at night during the summer? As Texans, we’re no strangers to a hot summer with temperatures seeming to never fall below 80 degrees. A room that is too hot can be a factor in getting poor sleep. Ensuring you’re getting enough restful sleep is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Without enough sleep, you can see adverse effects on your health, like memory problems, irritability, and lack of concentration during the day. In this blog, we’ll discuss how you can maintain the best temperature for sleeping peacefully through the night.

Where Should I Set My Thermostat?

Most people know that a cool room is ideal for sleeping, but there is actually a specific temperature range that is optimal for slumber. According to the National Sleep Foundation, the ideal room temperature for sleep is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Cooler temperatures help to promote deep sleep, while warmer temperatures can lead to restless nights. In addition, the NSF recommends maintaining a consistent room temperature throughout the night, as drastic changes can disrupt sleep patterns. By keeping your room within the recommended temperature range, you can help ensure a restful night's sleep. Finding the temperature that best suits your sleeping needs can take some trial and error. The best way to ensure you’re able to sleep comfortably is to schedule regular maintenance on your home’s HVAC system to ensure it’s working properly. This will help ensure your home stays cool even if temperatures outside continue to rise.
