The Importance of Blinds For A Good Sleep

Sleep, Heat Gain, Blinds, Sun, Morning, Sleeping

Although we are still officially in Spring it really is starting to feel like Summer this week. During the week most of us have experienced the common issues that come with the intense suns rays – this weeks warm up is a chance to see and solve those problems before the real heat sets in.

Sleep is a vital part of our lives and we need a sufficient number of hours to ensure a productive day. This is is why it is important to create the perfect atmosphere; this includes maintaining the right room temperature. As the night draws in the external temperature drops and the internal space is just perfect. When we sleep our body heat decreases to initiate sleep, which is why a lowered room temperature helps to maintain this.

If however you are in an east facing room then sleep may be frustrating at times. As the night sets in you may be very quick to doze off, as the internal environment is ideal to fall into a dream state. When the sun starts to rise you may find your sleep cut short due to the room being affected by unwanted solar heat gain. This will cause the room to increase in heat and cause you to sweat and wake up on the wrong side of the bed thus affecting the rest of your day.

You have probably thought that opening up the windows will help with this situation? Yes, this will circulate the air slightly but this will not completely solve the issue as the solar rays are still filtering through. You may also be considering internal blinds to deflect those rays, but these blinds do not directly deter heat as the rays are still penetrating the glass windows. Glass magnifies the heat greatly, so unless you prevent the heat from the outside you will not be getting the nicest wake up call you deserve.
