Last night, I fell asleep on the sofa in the living room after watching a movie.
I guess I was exhausted because I slept through the entire night.
Usually, when I fall asleep in the living room, I would eventually make my way to my bedroom, but that didn’t happen last night. Anyway, as part of my nightly routine, I adjust the temperature on my thermostat to my ideal sleep temperature, which is 74 degrees. If I am not sleeping, the thermostat is set to 78 degrees, which might sound a bit high, but it’s surprisingly pretty comfortable during the day. Well, because I skipped my nightly routine, my thermostat was still set to 78 degrees. So, this morning I woke up and I was drenched in sweat. I assume that the air conditioner did not cycle on during the night because the thermostat was set so high. While this was a random happening, it made me consider getting a programmable thermostat. With a programmable thermostat, I wouldn’t have to manually adjust it every night because it would already be programmed that way. The set it and forget it feature of a programmable thermostat makes all the difference. It’s one less thing that I would need to consider when going to bed or when I wake up in the morning. And if I fell asleep on the couch, I wouldn’t wake up in a complete sweat because my house was so warm. There are more benefits to having a programmable thermostat, but I believe the set it and forget it feature is perhaps the best one.
