It’s been an odd start to autumn in some parts of the U.S. For many, summer temperature stuck around long after they were welcome, and then drought set in for the east. Meanwhile, in the west, early snows surprised many. But, the fall is settled in now and temperatures are starting to get cooler and cooler at night. There may be a temptation on those cooler nights to crank up the heat. Our advice is to avoid that temptation.
Research shows that temperatures above 75 degrees or below 54 degrees can disrupt sleep. For most people, the best setting for your thermostat at night is between 60 and 68 degrees. Anything more than that, and you could be too hot to sleep well. Anything less than that could leave you cold.
