Is Your A/C Affecting Your Sleep?

According to a recent Economic Times article, your a/c can affect your sleeping more than you think, and perhaps not how you think.  In a recent study by the Journal of Energy and Buildings, participants had significantly greater physical movements, increased heart rates and a higher frequency of wake-ups when the velocity was set at a certain rate.  These results increased even more on participants with lower body strength and / or a greater sensitivity to cold.  In a similar study, researchers at Toyohashi University of Technology in Japan found that the airflow from a standard central a/c system stimulates the human body while sleeping and impacts sleeping conditions even at low airflow levels.  For a further breakdown and more information, please click on the link below to go straight to the article.  A very interesting read to say the least.
