Temperatures to Sleep: Hot vs. Cold

Finding the right temperature when you sleep is one of the most important things you can do to get the best sleep. In this article, we will discuss the differences between sleep quality in both hotter temperatures and colder temperatures.

Hot - The definition of hot can vary for many people, it can be as low as 75 degrees fahrenheit and as high as 90 degrees. Hopefully no one sleeps in 90 degree heat in air conditioning, but something that can be overlooked when thinking about temperature is not just temperature. It is also about humidity. A high humidity can make a bedroom uncomfortable, easily interrupting your sleep.

Cold - Science even supports sleeping in a cold room, with the suggested temperature to be 60 to 68 degrees fahrenheit the optimal temperature for getting a good night's rest. With air conditioning costs raising, here are some ways to keep a room cool without paying double:

- Create a cross breeze: This can be done with a window or a fan, as long as the air is

constantly moving throughout your home and ends where you sleep.

- Add a fan: While this does run electricity, it keeps one room cool without cooling the

entire house.

- Keep all the doors open: this can allow for the air to naturally flow instead of closed

doors stopping it.
