Why You Should Cheat On Your AC This Summer

Summer AC budget

Summer’s right around the corner, and you’re probably ready to crank up that air conditioner at night when you sleep. Before you bump that AC down to a crisp temperature, consider how much money you could save by simply cooling your bed, not your entire room.

Underneath the covers, your body heats up, while your AC may cool only your face. This can cause night sweats, which can’t be fun during the summer. Choosing sleepme sleep systems will not only cool your bed at night and provide you with better sleep, but it will also help put some money back in your pocket.

Energy Costs and Savings by State

According to weatherspark.com, Palm Springs, California, reaches 106 degrees in July, while Austin, Texas, witnesses temps of 96 degrees in August. This can lead to someone lowering AC temps inside the bedroom at night.

Electricity rates by state from Energybot.com show the average American household consumes 14,600 kilowatt-hours during eight hours of sleep per year. What is a kilowatt-hour you may be wondering? Basically, a kilowatt-hour “equals the amount of energy you would use by keeping a 1,000-watt appliance running for one hour,” according to electricityplans.com.

In a nutshell, assuming a 5000-watt air-conditioning unit is running at full blast at 72 degrees for eight hours each night for 365 days, the average American spends $1,521 a year on air conditioning.

That’s roughly $760 over six months of warm weather.

A California resident might dish out $3,390 annually and nearly $1700 from May to October, while a Hawaiian household will spend over $5,000 in one year in energy costs.

When using a Dock Pro WE (queen bed) cooling mattress pad rather than the AC to lower house temperature, the average US home saves over $200 per year.

Don’t Let Temperature Affect Your Sleep

Falling into a deep sleep is linked with cooling your body temperature, and being hot can reduce the likelihood of falling asleep and staying asleep—cool your body with one of our sleep system, the Dock Pro, OOLER or Cube.

Benefits of Using sleepme Product & Not Running the AC

Falling into a deep sleep is linked to cooling your body, not your house. Though your AC is pumping cold air throughout the room, your body must be at the right temperature to receive quality sleep this summer. With a temperature range from 55 to 115 degrees, sleepme systems ensure that whatever your ideal sleep temperature is, you will fall asleep and stay asleep.

In scientific terms, your circadian rhythm is essentially how your body knows when to fall asleep. Your melatonin secretion affects your body’s sleep-wake cycle and changes in your core body temperature. Sleeping too hot, especially in the summer, can disrupt your sleep quality and throw your body’s natural cycle out of alignment.
