How Can Furnace Service Help You Sleep Better?

Sleep is extremely important to our health. A variety of factors can impact the amount and quality of sleep you get, but there’s one in particular that Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can assist you with. The temperature of the space where you sleep has a lot to do with how fast you manage to 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 behind on furnace service, your sleep may be suffering, especially when the Greater Richmond weather isn’t ideal or if your furnace is running too frequently. That’s why we’re 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 rest easy. All it takes is a call to Herman Allen Plumbing, Heating & Cooling and we’ll get your furnace service taken care of. We can also help you optimize your sleeping situation by installing a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat can be programmed and can even study your routine, so your temperature will be precisely where you like it, when you want it there. Most smart thermostats will even alert you when your furnace should be serviced, which helps prevent surprising breakdowns.

Other Ways to Improve Your Sleep

In addition to keeping your furnace maintained and getting a thermostat that works for your home, here are some other tips to help you improve your sleep:

  • Go to bed and wake up at the same time consistently 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 frequently.
  • Keep your bedroom dark and quiet. Avoid using electronics, doing work, or anything else distracting or possibly stressful in your bedroom.
