Are you always too hot or too cold and can’t seem to sleep through the night? The temperature level of the air and the selected bedding you use are also factors in how well you sleep. Take charge and learn the best temperatures for a good night’s sleep.
What is the Best Temperature for Sleeping?
Ideal sleep temperatures in your home can be different due to outside temperatures in your environment. Even though ideal sleep temp is between 60-67 degrees, people in many in an areas, such as Phoenix, cool their homes to about 75-80 degrees to help save energy as well as expenses.
While there certainly is a range for ideal sleep temperatures, it is as much a preference as it is a medical fact. We recommend each individual/couple/family really needs to decide what temperature they are comfortable with, and then adjust or program their thermostat accordingly.
Improve Sleep with a Programmable Thermostat or a Ductless System
There are two options we recommend for maintain comfortable sleep temperatures during the night: a programmable thermostat or a ductless system. Installing a programmable thermostat in your home will allow you to keep a consistent temperature throughout the night. Having a ductless system in your bedroom will allow you to adjust the bedroom temperature only, helping you be more comfortable when you sleep without the cost of cooling your entire home.
