Sleep is highly regulated by temperature. Temperature change can disrupt our night´s rest and create other issues, a study claims. DAIKIN air conditioning helps avoid these problems by securing the optimal bedroom climate.
Vienna, August 4th 2017 – “Whoever drinks beer, he is quick to sleep; whoever sleeps long does not sin; whoever does not sin, enters Heaven! Thus, let us drink beer!” Martin Luther may have a point here. Yet the question remains: what does it really take to ensure a relaxing and healthy night’s sleep?
Science knows the answer. First and foremost, it is all about temperature. Even members of hunter-gatherer societies in Tanzania and the remotest parts of the Amazon go to bed not when the sun sets, but when temperatures drop at night. When it gets cool, sleep comes easily. Science and conventional wisdom both tell us that temperatures in bedrooms should range from 16 to 22°C.
Tropical nights on the rise
U.S. scientist Nick Obradovich warns that “Too little sleep increases susceptibility to disease and chronic illness and harms psychological and cognitive functioning”. Obradovich conducted a major study on the effects of climate and temperature at night on sleep.1 His findings – that increases in night-time temperatures exacerbate sleeping problems – come as no surprise. Yet they urge us to get prepared to withstand the expected increase in tropical nights (i.e. nights when temperatures never drop below 20° centigrade)
DAIKIN – cool, quiet and purifying
DAIKIN Air Conditioning meets this challenge easily and provides the best solutions to create optimal indoor climate – especially in bedrooms. DAIKIN’s Emura range offers not only constant temperatures, it is also whisper quiet, comes with a silver allergen removal and air purifying filter2, as well as a captivating, iconic design.
These are features which do not only apply perfectly in the home, but also hotels – even more so because the quality of sleep in a hotel is key to turning guests into regulars, and then ambassadors.
“Of all the factors affecting sleep, temperature plays an integral role”, says Alexander Dalinger, General Manager – Marketing & Corporate Communications at DAIKIN Central Europe. “Especially for elderly people and children, a good night´s sleep is invaluable. But the same applies to everybody else. DAIKIN’s solutions and products lower the negative effects of tropical nights, both in homes and in hotels.”
