Studies have shown that the ideal bedroom sleeping temperature is between 60 and 67 degrees, therefore it’s important to keep that temperature up no matter the season. Doing this via your air conditioning will cost a pretty penny, however you can rely on fans to helps regulate the temperature. In addition to regulating temperature, fans help keep air fresh and provide white noise that has been found to help you relax.

If the air in your bedroom becomes too thick due to humidity, you run the risk of an irritated respiratory system and lack of sleep because of it. Purchasing a simple dehumidifier for your bedroom can help push the air quality to where it should be for that perfect night’s sleep.
