Tossing and turning through the night can leave you cranky and tired in the morning. Finding ways to sleep soundly can be tough. You have probably tried warm milk and soothing, white noise. You may have even tried some over-the-counter medications to help induce sleep. When you have tried numerous ways to help you sleep at night, you may be overlooking the obvious – temperature. The temperature of your sleeping environment can have a direct impact on your ability to get a good night’s rest.
The ideal temperature for sleeping is between 60 and 68 degrees. While this may seem a bit chilly, it will keep your body from getting too warm as you sleep. When you are too warm while you sleep, you toss, turn, sweat, and generally have an uncomfortable night. If you are waking up drenched in sweat and feeling exhausted, you should try lowering the temperature of your bedroom. Air conditioning is the easiest way to keep your bedroom cool.

Summer is approaching and this means that temperatures will be rising. And because Colorado has been experiencing unseasonably warm weather, we may be in for a real scorcher this year. The last thing you need is your air conditioning unit to fail on the warmest day of the year. It is important to catch problems before they start – which is why regular maintenance on your unit is essential.
However, even with regular maintenance, air conditioners can fail.
One of the main components of your air conditioner is the compressor. This vital piece of machinery is necessary for your unit to cool your home.

So, the question remains – does the compressor in your air conditioner need replacing? To find that answer, you need to know the signs of a failing compressor: Continue reading →
As summer approaches, if you do not have a cooling system for your home, it is time to examine your options. Air conditioning systems make the hot, summer weather more comfortable. Gone are the days when you would be forced to swelter in 100-degree weather. Today, you have a variety of options to choose from when it comes to air conditioning systems.
Central air conditioning – this type of cooling is one of the most popular systems available. It is also one of the most efficient, in terms of cooling capacity and energy costs. You can choose from a single-package system or a split system. Single-package systems are found mainly in the industrial market – in other words, warehouses, factories and other industrial locations. These “all-in-one” systems are usually mounted on the roof. Split systems are normally found in homes. These systems place the noisy part of the AC unit outside of the home and provide even cooling throughout the home by way of duct work.
Ductless air conditioning – these units are great for those homes that do not have duct work. Again, the noisy part is kept outside and the cooling area is centralized around the inside AC unit. These systems are usually not able to cool an entire home, but they can certainly cool specific areas. Its great for bedrooms and other living areas where you spend a great deal of your time.
