(Newswire.net — November 8, 2021) — The Florida-based heating, cooling, and air conditioning company is pleased to issue a short, handy guide answering some frequently asked questions about how bedroom temperature affects sleep.

Orlando, Florida — 11/8/21According to sleep experts, the optimal temperature for a human being to sleep in lies somewhere between either 60 – 72 degrees Fahrenheit or 15 – 22 degrees Celsius. However, that still leaves a fairly expansive range of 12 degrees Fahrenheit and 7 degrees Celsius within which an individual must find their own personal optimal sleep temperature. So, how does a person determine their optimal sleep temperature? What are the problems that can occur when someone doesn’t sleep in a bedroom set at their optimal sleep temperature? And what can be done if a person has a bedmate whose optimal sleep temperature is higher or lower than their own? As a part of its ongoing campaign to better educate the general public about all matters relating to heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, Orlando Air Conditioning Experts presents a short, handy guide answering some frequently asked questions about how bedroom temperature affects sleep.

Determining Optimal Sleep Temperature

Although every individual must ultimately trust their own bodies and sensibilities when it comes to determining their optimal sleep temperature, there are some useful guidelines that tend to apply to everyone. For starters, age is a factor. Babies and toddlers tend to be most comfortable sleeping within a slimmer range, usually favoring higher temperatures, as do the elderly. For these groups, anything between 65 – 70 degrees Fahrenheit or 18 – 21 degrees Celsius is likely the sweet spot. On the other hand, adults under 65 years old can run the gamut, favoring conditions between 60 – 72 degrees Fahrenheit or 15 – 22 degrees Celsius, with a certain percentage finding the extreme ends most conducive to restful sleep. Beyond these general guidelines, though, optimal sleep temperature is simply whatever is most comfortable to an individual person.

Problems That Can Arise From Sleeping in a Suboptimal Temperature

The human body has an internal regulatory mechanism that sets its own temperature a few degrees lower than normal when sleeping through the release of certain hormones. As such, a slight drop in bedroom temperature before bedtime usually provides assistance in falling asleep, but if it’s too hot or too cold, the body may react poorly, prompting sleep-related problems. The most common problems to arise from sleeping in a suboptimal temperature are garden-variety insomnia and fatigue.

How to Address Sleep Temperature Conflicts Between Bedmates

As with many important aspects of life, finding a compromise is the key to resolving sleep temperature conflicts between bedmates. One effective resolution to this age-old problem is to set the bedroom thermostat to the precise middle between the optimal sleep temperatures of the two people involved, and then have each person add or remove clothing and blankets accordingly. For instance, if Person A prefers a sleep temperature of 64 degrees Fahrenheit and Person B prefers a sleep temperature of 68 degrees Fahrenheit, they can compromise by setting their thermostat to 66 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, whereas Person A might find it too hot, they can remove bedclothes and pyjamas, while Person B can add layers of bedclothes and sleepwear to keep from becoming too cold. Should these or similar actions not resolve the conflict, however, some thought ought to be given to sleeping in separate rooms, as the health and wellness of one or both people could be negatively affected.
