Scientific research shows there’s a definite link between sleep temperature and sleep quality. The temperature of the bedroom where you sleep will not only influence how quickly you fall asleep, it also has a direct correlation to how soundly you sleep and how refreshed you feel the next morning.

You don’t need scientific research to know how an overly hot or cold bedroom makes sound sleep difficult. But what does the science say about the optimum thermostat setting during sleep in winter? Read on to learn what the experts recommend for a good night’s slumber during the cold season.

Your Body Temperature

Your body temperature follows a predictable curve while you’re asleep. Starting out at 98.6 degrees, the temperature gradually declines after you doze off. As the sleep cycle deepens and your metabolism slows, body temperatures may fluctuate as much as 2 degrees. By the early a.m., body temperature reaches its lowest point.

The Room Temperature

The ideal sleep temperature is generally slightly below the recommended thermostat setting for the whole house during waking hours.
