How Can Furnace Service Help You Sleep Better?

September 22, 2017

Sleep is so important to one’s health. A variety of factors can impact the amount and quality of sleep you acquire, but there’s one in particular that Three Rivers Heating & Cooling can help support. 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 rest. 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 in need of furnace service, your sleep may be suffering, especially when the Portland weather isn’t ideal or if your furnace is working too often. That’s why our experts are here for you.

With a tuned-up furnace, you’ll help be sure that your home is at the temperature you want it to be, and you’ll rest easy. All you have to do is call to Three Rivers Heating & Cooling and we’ll get your furnace service taken care of. We can also help you maximize your sleeping atmosphere by installing a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat can be programmed and can even absorb your routine, so your temperature will be precisely where you need it, when you want it there. Most smart thermostats will even alert you when your furnace requires service, which helps prevent unexpected breakdowns.

Other Ways to Improve Your Sleep

In addition to keeping your furnace maintained and finding a thermostat that works for you, 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 regularly.
  • Keep your bedroom dark and quiet. Avoid using electronics, doing work, or anything else distracting or possibly stressful in your bedroom.
