While we’re supposed to get an average of 6 to 8 hours of uninterrupted, deep, and restful sleep each night, we have all spent a night or two tossing and turning without being able to put our finger on the exact cause.
Some may blame stress. Maybe a car alarm was blaring down the street. While others simply cannot find a reason.
Whatever the source of our sleeplessness, just one night of tossing and turning is enough to ruin the next day.
When trying to figure out why you are so sleepy — take the temperature of your room into account.
What is the Perfect Temperature?
Studies have shown that temperature may play a role in how well we sleep. And we all know that a lack of sleep is known to cause confusion, illness, and even weight gain.
The average temperature should be between 65 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal and most restful sleep.
However, there are times we believe our thermostat is set to the correct temperature, yet we still have issues in fully resting due to an unknown issue with the HVAC system.
Problems could lie within the thermostat itself reading temperatures incorrectly. Other issues could be with the furnace or AC unit not performing optimally due to broken parts or lack of maintenance. You’ll need a professional HVAC technician to help diagnose the issues.
Proper HVAC maintenance may be part of the solution in keeping your home at the best temperature, so you can get the most out of your sleeping hours.
