CREATING THE PERFECT CLIMATE FOR SLEEP
Hot summer months force many to either sleep with the window open or keep their AC running throughout the night. But it’s hard to fine-tune your microclimate when you don’t even know what the optimal sleep conditions are.

If you’re a hot sleeper, you probably dread summertime. With record-setting heat waves on the horizon, you don’t want to spend all those warm summer nights sweaty and sleepless in bed. It feels impossible to control the climate and keep cool when the ambient air is like a sauna. You wake up feeling like a dried out old sponge, but that’s not even the worst of it. Overheating at night can lead to a variety of health problems and completely throw your circadian rhythms out of whack.
