How To Find Your Optimal Sleep Temperature

 

How To Find Your Optimal Sleep Temperature

 

There’s nothing worse than struggling to fall asleep or having a restless night. The next day you feel exhausted and it’s much harder to get anything done. If you struggle to fall asleep at night, the temperature of your room could be making it more difficult. When trying to fall asleep, no one wants to be freezing cold or hot and sweaty. Everyone has their own optimal sleep temperature. Figuring out what yours is will positively impact your sleep.

Age does not typically have an impact on the ideal sleep temperature. However, babies generally prefer slightly warmer temperatures to sleep. If your optimal sleep temperature is quite cool, consider raising it slightly if you have a baby in the home. 

A common preferred sleep temperature is around 18 degrees Celsius. However, this is not the case for everyone. To find your optimal sleeping temperature, try adjusting the temperature slightly each night and monitor how you sleep. To conduct the most accurate temperature tests, try not to change any other factors.

How to know if you’ve found your optimal sleep temperature.

Depending on your internal thermostat, your optimal sleep temperature may be different from others. To recognize if you have found the right temperature for you, look for signs that your body responds well. This includes falling asleep faster, sleeping throughout the night, and feeling well rested the next day. An improved sleeping pattern and ability to fall asleep easily will indicate that you have found your ideal sleeping temperature.

How to maintain that temperature every night.

Once you have found your optimal sleep temperature, you will want to maintain it every night. Installing a smart thermostat is a great way to maintain your sleeping pattern. It allows you to easily adjust the temperature in your home to achieve your optimal sleep temperature. You can also program your thermostat to automatically set your ideal temperature at a certain hour. Have the Ignite team install the thermostat that best suits your needs. With options including wifi and voice activated remote thermostats and basic user-friendly non-programmable options, we have something for everyone.

If you like it cool when you sleep, you may not be able to achieve your optimal sleeping temperature in the summer months. To maintain your optimal sleep temperature year round, consider investing in an air conditioner to keep your home cool on hot summer nights. The Ignite team can install a high efficiency AC unit to keep your house cool. We will plan before installing the AC to ensure the unit is properly sized for your house and will keep each room cool. This will allow the entire family to maintain an optimal sleeping temperature. 

Contact your local Ignite team to install an AC or thermostat to help you maintain your optimal sleep temperature every night.

5 Tips and Tricks For Running Your A/C Unit

A/C unit maintenance tips

Properly maintaining your AC will allow it to last longer and work more efficiently, protecting your investment.

Getting an air conditioning unit is an investment. Properly maintaining your AC will allow it to last longer and work more efficiently, protecting your investment. We understand that not everyone is an HVAC technician, however, we all deserve to know how to get the most out of our air conditioners.

Here are 5 Tips and Tricks For Running Your A/C Unit.

1. Clear the area around your outdoor unit

When you have the Ignite team install air conditioning in your house you will notice a shiny new unit outside. This is the condenser, and it needs room to breathe to operate correctly. Make sure that the area around the condenser is well maintained year-round. Cutting the grass, trimming the shrubs, and other seasonal maintenance surrounding the unit is necessary for optimal AC performance. This will also allow easy access for the Ignite technician who performs the annual tune up.

 2. Change air filters

 Like your furnace, AC units have air filters to maintain good indoor air quality. These filters keep debris out of your home and also contribute to the air conditioning unit’s performance. If the filter has a lot of dust and debris build up, it will make it difficult for cold air to be properly distributed and may cause your AC to be overworked. To maintain the AC’s efficiency and keep the air in your home clean, check and replace your air filter monthly.  

 3. Annual tune ups

 Scheduling annual tune ups are necessary to ensure your air conditioner is in good condition and allows any potential issues to be recognized early. Catching potential problems before they become significant will allow the technician to take care of the issue early, which will lessen the chance of failure later on. Schedule your annual tune up with Ignite to or join our AC Comfort Club today.

 4. Consider the location of your thermostats

 Heat generating appliances like lamps and televisions can cause the thermostat to misread the actual temperature in the home if they are too close. This will cause your thermostat to think your home is warmer than it is, and your AC will work harder to cool your home more than is actually needed. The location of your thermostat is important for accurate reading and maintaining a desired temperature in your home. Keep your thermostat away from hot areas in your home where there may be sun shining in or appliances that emit significant heat.

5. Update older models

If you have an older AC unit, update it with a new Napoleon unit installed by Ignite technicians. Older models use more energy which can cause your monthly utility bills to be higher. Replacing these with new, high efficiency air conditioners will save you money over time and increase cooling efficiency.

 

Now that you know the Top 5 Tips and Tricks For Running Your A/C Unit and how to have it last a long time, use these tips and tricks. Contact us in Edmonton and Sherwood Park for all your AC installation and maintenance needs.

Ductless Heat Pumps & Air Conditioners

Napoleon ductless heat pumps and air conditioners are able to heat or cool your home without a duct system. These ductless systems can be ideal in a variety of applications including whole-house heating and cooling. Ductless systems have two key components, an indoor wall mount unit and an outdoor unit. Both units work together to manage comfort levels. Air conditioner models offer cooling, while heat pump models offer both heating and cooling. There are some unique situations in which going ductless has definite advantages:

1. Condos, additions, garage apartments, bonus rooms and sunrooms

Getting a properly sized ductless unit in one of these spaces won’t steal air from other rooms or overload your main HVAC system. Or maybe there isn’t ducting to the new space, so a ductless unit would be perfect for adding heating and cooling to that particular room. These small convenient units are perfect for condos and apartments where space is limited or ducting is impossible.

2. Downsizing in a large home

Many people don’t need to heat or cool their entire house. The main benefit of ductless is that you can heat and cool only the rooms you choose. For maximum efficiency you can install a ductless system in the master bedroom and set the house’s main thermostat to run minimally. This will not only help save money but also lengthen the lifespan of your main HVAC system.

3. Create multi-zones

Does your family constantly fight over the perfect thermostat settings? Ductless is ideal for creating independent temperature zones in different rooms. If your space is too large for one ductless system, Napoleon’s multi-zone ductless system is the perfect fit. The multi-zone offers up to 4 indoor units that operate from one, powerful outdoor air condenser. The indoor units can be distributed throughout the home and set to individual temperatures. Indoor options include wall mount units or cassettes. With a multi-zone system, everyone can enjoy custom temperatures throughout the home all year long.

4. Your specific needs

Maybe you have one room with a large south-facing window? Could that room use an extra boost with a ductless air conditioner? Without installing extra ductwork or adding a whole home A/C unit you could cool that one warm room to make it more comfortable all summer long.

More Control

Napoleon’s ductless heat pumps and air conditioners include a remote control for the indoor unit. The remote control allows you to conveniently monitor and adjust the temperature settings of your home.

The Napoleon ductless heat pump and air conditioner outdoor unit is stylish.

How do they work?

Simply defined, ductless heat pumps and air conditioners (also known as mini-splits) link individual room units to an outdoor compressor. As an alternative to central HVAC systems that are connected by long lengths of ductwork transporting warm and cool air back and forth, a mini-split system places small ductless units directly in each room. These less intrusive units blend in and are very energy efficient. Ductless split systems don’t lose air through leaks in ducts. With traditional HVAC systems, 20-30% of energy is lost through ductwork.

What is the best size?

Deciding on the best size ductless unit for your needs is simple. Calculate the room’s square footage including additional spaces such as closets, then use these measurements to determine the BTUs required for that space. Here is an example of typical spaces and sizes necessary:

Space to be cooled: 150 to 250 square feet; Capacity (in BTUs per hour): 6,000

Space to be cooled: 250 to 300 square feet; Capacity (in BTUs per hour): 7,000

Space to be cooled: 300 to 350 square feet; Capacity (in BTUs per hour): 8,000

A ductless heat pump and/or air conditioner is also a great option if your existing system can’t handle the addition of a new space and you’re not prepared to replace your current HVAC system. Or maybe your current HVAC system is reaching the end of it’s life and you can’t afford to do a complete replacement. You may be able to postpone an upgrade if you put in a split system to heat and cool additional spaces.

So if you’re looking for an option to add heating and cooling to a new space or a specific room in your home, consider a ductless heat pump and/or air conditioner.
