How Can Furnace Service Help You Sleep Better?

Sleep is very important to one’s health. A variety of factors can impact the amount and quality of sleep you obtain, but there’s one in particular that Heartland Heating & Cooling can assist you with. The temperature of the location where you sleep has a lot to do with how fast you will fall asleep and the quality of your sleep. According to the National Sleep Foundation, “many sleep experts say that a cool room, somewhere around 65 degrees, makes for the best sleep, and research backs this notion.” If you’re needing furnace service, your sleep may be suffering, especially when the Des Moines weather isn’t ideal or if your furnace is operating too much. That’s why our experts are here for you.

With a tuned-up furnace, you’ll help make sure that your indoor space is at the temperature you want it to be, and you’ll relax easier. All you have to do is call to Heartland Heating & Cooling and we’ll get your furnace service taken care of. We can also help you optimize your sleeping environment by installing a smart thermostat. It can be programmed and can even study your routine, so your home’s temperature will be just where you need it, when you want it there. Most smart thermostats will even tell you when your furnace requires service, which helps prevent sudden breakdowns.

Other Ways to Improve Your Sleep

In addition to keeping your furnace maintained and selecting a thermostat that works for your home, here are several other tips to help you get better sleep:

  • Go to bed and wake up at the same time each day to keep your body in a routine.
  • Try to do something that reduces stress before hitting bed. Read a book, take a bath, listen to soothing music. Do what works for you.
  • Exercise consistently.
  • Keep your bedroom dark and quiet. Avoid using electronics, doing work, or anything else distracting or possibly stressful in your bedroom.
