How Does Temperature Affect Your Sleep?, Brooklyn, New York

When people have trouble sleeping, the culprit is often a temperature that is either too hot or cold. The more you understand about the relationship between temperature and sleep, the easier it is to optimize your HVAC system with the right equipment and configuration. Here’s what you should know. 

What’s the Relationship Between Temperature & Sleep?

There is an ideal temperature your body seeks during sleep time. While the exact number differs for every person, the recommended range, according to the National Sleep Foundation, is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit. Your body will start shivering to generate warmth when it’s cooler than this range, and if it’s warmer, you’ll start sweating. Both of these actions disrupt sleep.

In addition to keeping you awake, temperatures outside this range will affect your quality of sleep. Too much heat, for example, will keep you from entering REM sleep, which is believed to play a role in storing memories and balancing mood. Symptoms of lack of REM sleep include migraines and weight gain.

How Can a Smart HVAC System Help?

HVAC systemOptimal sleep temperatures are specific and personal, so it can be helpful if you have a modern HVAC system in your home. With a ductless heating and cooling system, you can control the exact temperature in any given room, allowing you to experiment until you find your perfect temperature. It’s also perfect for families. With traditional HVAC systems, residents often argue over control of the thermostat, since different people have different temperature preferences. Ductless units solve that problem, allowing everyone to find their own equilibrium.
