According to a study published by the National Institutes of Health, sleep quality is strongly influenced by the temperature of your home. Are you among the over 35% of adult Americans suffering from insomnia? Using zone climate control to isolate the bedroom area will balance an ideal home temperature with energy efficiency.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
What if learning to set your home thermostat to the ideal temperature could cure your insomnia? Zone heating permits the homeowner to concentrate cooling to the bedroom zone of the house. The next piece of the indoor climate control puzzle is programmable devices.
Programming your device for the ideal indoor temperature based on area and time of day will improve your comfort level, leading to better sleep. Many programmable thermostats will allow for multiple settings based on time of day and zones. To guarantee optimal indoor temperature, use a digital device that will allow precise temperature and time settings.
