Tossing and turning all night is sure to have you searching for how to get a better night’s sleep. A new thermostat could be just the solution. An old, manual thermostat stays set where it is, and a too-warm temperature at night can contribute to a night of restlessness. Dynamic temperature control with a programmable thermostat can help you sleep better by automatically cooling your home before bedtime.
According to the National Sleep Foundation, the ideal sleeping temperature falls anywhere between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Throughout the day and as you sleep, your body temperature falls naturally, following a process called thermoregulation.
Programming a smart thermostat to lower the temperature before bedtime helps you get to sleep at a lower ambient temperature. This helps you fall asleep faster and allows you to cycle naturally through the sleep stages. A programmable thermostat can also help you wake up easier in the morning, as warmer temperatures signal the body to move into a state of alertness.
