The optimal temperature in the bedroom to ensure a restful and healthy sleep depends on various factors - such as age. While toddlers and babies should sleep at a room temperature of 18 to 19 degrees Celsius, the room temperature for adults can be 15 to 18 degrees Celsius. A room temperature that is too warm or too cold can affect the quality of sleep. The room should also be dark and quiet. So avoid noise, direct sunlight and too many electronic devices at all costs, as these influences can significantly impair the quality of sleep.
Optimal temperature in the bedroom: why the microclimate is crucial for good sleep
Even when the room temperature is optimal, your bedding ultimately decides whether a feel-good climate is created in bed. One also speaks of microclimate here, i.e. the climate that prevails directly in the vicinity of the skin of the sleeper. It largely determines how restful the night will be.
For an optimal microclimate, it is advisable to choose light and breathable bedding. Bedding that is too thick can heat the body and affect the quality of sleep. Sleep researchers recommend having a temperature gradient by using a thick blanket for your feet and a thinner blanket for your torso. This creates a feeling of warmth and comfort without feeling too hot.
If that is too complicated for you, you can also rely on thermoregulating bedding. They create a balanced microclimate throughout the night because they work like a heat buffer and are able to absorb excess body heat, store it and release it again when needed. Without the sleeper noticing anything, the microclimate is constantly regulated throughout the night. Manufacturers like SleepCOOL promise a sweat reduction of up to 48% if the entire sleeping cave is equipped with these smart textiles.
The ideal sleeping climate
Sleep disorders, sleep sweats and night-time discomfort are hot topics for many people across different age groups. "Up to 15% of all Germans regularly suffer from problems falling asleep and staying asleep, a so-called primary insomnia," says Dieter Riemann, sleep researcher and psychologist at the University of Freiburg. In a study on the health of adults by the Robert Koch Institute, every fourth respondent stated to regularly have problems falling asleep or staying asleep. And the trend is rising. One reason for poor sleep is inadequate sleep systems, consisting of mattress, blanket and pillow. And this is exactly where SleepCOOL. products come in.
Innovative functional materials are used in SleepCOOL. products. For example Outlast® phase change material (PCM) and cuddly TENCEL® fiber fillings used, which have a positive effect on the temperature and humidity in the sleeping cave and thus ensure a pleasant sleeping climate. Completely individual!
It has been proven that SleepCOOL. products not only compensate for temperature fluctuations, they also reduce humidity. Studies show that Outlast® materials can reduce sweat production by between 30% and 50% on average. You sleep drier and better. According to the motto "Less is more" - that means: Less sweating means more healthy sleep.
Unlike other fabrics and insulation that retain heat, the Outlast® materials used in SleepCOOL. products continuously regulate and proactively the temperature. Overheating and the resulting sweating are significantly reduced. Outlast® materials offer a measurable advantage over moisture-wicking technologies because they only react after the body has already started perspiring.
STRICT QUALITY CONTROL
SleepCOOL. is committed to comfort and works with various renowned testing institutes. By the way: All materials used are tested for performance, durability and safety.
We can assure:
SleepCOOL. products are ecologically harmless and free of harmful substances. Numerous certifications (e.g. according to Öko-Tex® Standard 100 or ISO or AIDIMA certificates) provide proof of this.
