I love sleeping with the room really cold. Is this bad for me?

The only way it is easy for me to sleep is when the room temperature is very low (about 60 degrees). Besides running up my electric bill in the summer, should I be concerned that it is bad for my health?

Hi Lindsay,

In most cases, temperatures above 75 degrees Fahrenheit and below 54 degrees will disrupt sleep, but even sleep researchers fail to agree on the deal temperature for sleep. The point at which sleep is interrupted due to temperature or climate conditions varies from person to person and can be affected by bed clothing.
