As the weather gets warmer and Summer approaches, your sleep quality may worsen due to the high temperatures. Sleeping in a hot room can mess with your circadian rhythm, causing sleeplessness, fatigue, and low productivity the following day. Still, sleeping in a cold room can also disrupt your deep sleep.
Here are some tips for using your air conditioner at night for perfect rest.
The Best Temperature for Sleeping
If you find yourself tossing and turning because it’s too hot to sleep comfortably, set your thermostat to between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit. These are good temps for AC at night, making it easier to fall asleep. Comfortable temperatures vary per person, so this range allows you to find the ideal AC temperature for sleeping without feeling too chilled.
Benefits of Sleeping with Nighttime AC
Cold temperatures are not just beneficial for Summertime sleep. No matter the season, sleeping in colder climates is better for your health. The colder temperatures regulate your internal body temperature and deep REM sleep cycles. Additionally, sleeping with the AC helps prevent heat-related conditions like dehydration, heat stroke, or heat exhaustion.
Another benefit to setting your room temperature lower is it’s more energy efficient. Compared to electric or ceiling fans, air conditioning systems ensure stable temperature control throughout the night. There is less fluctuation in energy costs while supporting optimal sleep comfort for a restful night.
