Why the Design of Your Mattress Matters
At the end of the day, if you’re worried about sleeping hot, it’s important to remember that our bodies are the heat source. Ultimately we sleep hot because the heat from our bodies is absorbed into the surface of the mattress that we are laying on all night. This means that if our mattress is designed with limited airflow, chances are we’ll wake up sweaty and tired. We have several components that help promote a cooler sleep. To read more about components that will offer you a better sleep please view this article.
Components to Avoid:
- Memory foam
- Mattresses made entirely of foam
Components to Look For:
- Pocketed coils
- Comfort coils
- Open-cell foam
- High resiliency foam
Unfortunately, there’s no magic resource that keeps you cold as ice at night – at least not yet anyway. But there are multiple components you can utilize (and stay away from – looking at you 100 % memory foam beds…) to help keep you cooler at night. If you have any questions about a mattress or its components, our experts are happy to help whether you buy from us or not.
