Adjust Bedroom Temperature For Better Sleep

How Bedroom Temperature Affects Your Zs

If you live in an old, drafty house, Winter can mean bone-chilling, shivering evenings. Meanwhile, inhabitants of radiator-heated apartments experience almost stiflingly hot nights. Believe it or not, room temperature has a significant impact on your sleep. To get proper sleep, the body has an internal temperature level that it needs to reach; and, the ideal room temperature to help the body achieve this is between 65 to 72 degrees F. While those with central AC and heat can quickly program the temperature to their liking, here are some other ways to control your bedroom temperature and lead to better, deeper Winter slumber.

Keep reading for temperature tips.

  • Keep your radiator on, but leave a window wide open and a rotating fan on. The fan will help circulate the air, creating a more comfortable bedroom temperature.
  • For cold, drafty houses, consider purchasing a stand alone radiator rather than a space heater, because they are safer to leave on during the night when you are asleep. Or, plug in an electric blanket to help warm up your bed prior to jumping in it.
  • If you sleep with a partner who prefers a different temperature, be sure the temperature does not fall below 65 degrees. If you are the colder partner, be sure to load up on the fuzzy socks and sweatshirts.

I have terrible sleep troubles. Specifically temp. related... Keeping my room at a comfortable 58 degrees in the middle of a southeast summer is very expensive, not to mention too cold for the rest of my family. The best discovery I have ever made was a temp. controlled mattress pad called the ChiliPad. I keep my side of the bed at 58 degrees all year, my husband keeps his much warmer and the house can stay at 80 and everyone else is fine! Saved us THOUSANDS on energy bills and I sleep better than I ever have. I just had to share.
