Beat the Heat: A Comprehensive Guide to Selecting a Cooling Mattress - Part 2

When the summer heat comes, getting a good night's sleep can be a challenge. Sweating, tossing, and turning can disrupt your rest, leaving you feeling groggy and exhausted the next day. Thankfully, temperature regulating mattresses offer a solution to prevent overheating and provide you with a refreshing and comfortable sleep environment. In continuation to our comprehensive guide to a restful Summer sleep, today we explore different options to help you select the perfect mattress for your needs. 

What are the main types of cooling features?

a.Airflow and Breathability: 

Mattresses with enhanced airflow and breathability features allow for better ventilation, preventing heat from being trapped with you under the blankets. This can be achieved through specialized fabric covers and/or strategic airflow channels within the mattress layer.

b.Open-Cell Foam or Ventilated Foam: 

Mattresses constructed with open-cell foam allow better airflow and heat dissipation. The structure of the material helps passively dissipate body heat, ensuring a cooler sleep on hotter nights.

c.Gel-Infused Foam: 

Gel-infused foam mattresses incorporate cooling gel particles into the foam layers. This technology helps absorb excess body heat preventing overheating under the covers. 

d.Phase Change Materials (PCM): 

PCM technology utilizes materials that can absorb, store, and release heat as the temperature changes. This proactive approach helps maintain a consistent, comfortable sleeping temperature.

What mattresses offer these cooling features?

Airflow and Breathability is a main feature in Stearns and Foster spring coil mattresses.  Their motto, “175 years of comfort, perfected,” holds true with their newest line of mattresses.  These mattresses are luxurious comfort from the moment you lay down.  And with carefully selected materials and built in airflow vents, a Stearns and Foster mattress will keep you comfortable through the night all year long. 

Utilizing a combination of specialized features, Tempur-Pedic ProBreeze and Luxe Breeze mattresses take temperature regulation very seriously. These mattresses help dissipate heat and maintain a refreshing temperature throughout the night. 

It starts at the top with their SmartClimate® Dual Cover System, an innovative design to promote breathability, wick away moisture, and create a cooler sleep surface. 

Deeper inside the mattress, Tempur-Pedic utilizes a ventilated material for one of a kind pressure relief with increased air flow.  Their Breeze line mattresses provide temperature regulation all night long for a deep, undisturbed sleep.  The Luxe Breeze line features that it feels up to 10°F cooler all night long!
