Despite the first day of fall technically being back on September 22nd, now that the first day of October has passed, I think that we’re all finally welcoming the season.
Sixty-five degrees; it’s not too hot, not too cold. How many of you get too warm or too chilly while you’re sleeping? I’m a blanket girl. Regardless of the weather or room temperature, I have to have a blanket on. Of course, this often leaves me hot during the night. Come summer time, I’m a fan of having the air conditioning on but I’m not exactly a fan of the electric bill that coincides. Hubby on the other hand, he usually gets on me about the air conditioning and rightfully so. He’d prefer to open a window and enjoy the fresh air. Now, while that sounds like a good idea, it’s not all that practical since we have cats. One bug or squirrel outside that window means a broken screen and a missing pet. On that, I’ll pass. Alas, taking everything into account, we’ve been unable to settle our hot and cold while sleeping differences… until now.
Sleep Number has always been a favorite of mine. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stopped in and tested out their mattresses when passing by their stores. Having been on my one-day wish list for ages now, I can finally check off that task. Sleep Number recently launched their latest product and this revolutionary new technology is, in one word, AMAZING!
The Sleep Number DualTemp Layer is not the classic, everyday product you’d expect to see from them. This is different; incredibly different, yet still quite similar. Instead of the usual mattresses that you’re used to seeing from Sleep Number, this is a mattress layer. While I’d, of course, recommend its use with a Sleep Number mattress, the Sleep Number DualTemp Layer can be used atop any mattress, new or old.
The Sleep Number DualTemp Layer allows users to individualize their own custom temperature settings for their respective sides of the bed. Genius, right? With the simple touch of a button, you can create a snuggly, warm sleep space or one that is cool and comfy. The separation is what’s great about it. Prior to its release, we could only choose one or the other – warm or cool. And nine times out of ten, someone wasn’t happy with that scenario. With the new Sleep Number DualTemp Layer, you can still cuddle up together in an entire bed of warmth or coolness if you choose to do so, but having the option to control your own side is where the brilliance comes in.
For every Sleep Number product (with the exception of pillows and bedding), users receive a specialized remote for control. These snazzy little things even know you by name and help you to get a better night’s sleep. Now, with a classic Sleep Number mattress, these remotes would guide you through and help you decide on your own Sleep Number. With the Sleep Number DualTemp Layer, however, these remotes allow you to go back and forth between warm and cool options. Additionally, it has a mid-ground “Fan” option but I’ll get to that in a bit.
The Sleep Number DualTemp Layer features active air technology that, unlike many products, allows for air to flow evenly throughout the layer. This allows the air, warm or cool, to completely and equally surround you as you sleep. There are no “cool spots” or “hot spots” neither centered nor scattered throughout but, rather, one uniform temperature across your entire area. Whether you’re a back sleeper, a side sleeper, a tummy sleeper, or (like my kids) some wild combination of the three, no matter which ways you toss and turn through the night, you will always be wrapped in your own little, special space of cool air or warmth. Scratch that. With the Sleep Number DualTemp Layer you won’t have any reason for midnight tossing and turning.
I first tried out the new Sleep Number DualTemp Layer in-store and – holy wow! – I swear I could’ve fallen asleep right in that store! The DualTemp Layer coupled with the classic Sleep Number mattress was like laying on a cloud of air. Heck! I was lying on a cloud of air, a Sleep Number bed of air! When we got it home, it was incredible. Easily the best night’s sleep we have EVER had! No need for any fans, air conditioners, heaters, electric blankets, anything; just our amazingly, incredible Sleep Number DualTemp Layer.
Now, the Sleep Number DualTemp Layer obviously offers the choice between warm versus cool but there is a midgrade temperature. Let me ask you this. Have you ever flipped over the pillow to the “cool” side of the pillow only to realize that it’s not exactly “cool” but only seemingly “cooler?” That somewhat cooler side of the pillow is, in reality, usually only the same temperature as the air within the room. It just hasn’t been slept on… yet. Now, how many of you use a fan at night? Did you know that the constant blowing air on your face can, sometimes, lead to sickness? With the new Sleep Number DualTemp Layer and its fan midgrade feature, you can get that same “cool side of the pillow” sleep with a nice, sort-of-kind-of breeze.
With all options available (warm, cool, and fan), the Sleep Number DualTemp Layer is certainly one heck of an investment. We are absolutely beyond thrilled with our own DualTemp Layer and I think I’ve mentioned it to just about everyone I know and then some. I have FINALLY figured out a way to keep the blankets on and still stay cool all while allowing hubby to keep warm and save money on our electric costs. I, truly, cannot tell you enough about how much we love this product. At the end of the day, though, I highly recommend it to everyone! It will, without a doubt, allow you the absolute best night’s sleep that you’ll ever get.
