The key to getting a good night’s sleep might be as simple as adjusting your thermostat. According to WebMD, “If insomnia is a problem, maybe your bedroom is too hot or too cold. Both can affect sleep.” We at Rusk Heating & Cooling want you to be as comfortable as possible, even when you’re in bed. Here’s how to find the best temperature for sleep:

If your bedroom is uncomfortably warm or cold, it can lead to an unwelcome wake-up call. However, there’s no one temperature range that’s ideal for everyone. Generally speaking, keeping your room between 65 and 72 degrees should do the trick.Man Having Trouble Sleeping
However, if you’re not getting enough shut-eye with the thermostat set somewhere in this range, you’ll need to experiment. Pay attention to what temperature your thermostat is programmed at, and make a note of how you slept. Do this until you’ve found the best temperature for sleep!
