The ability to control one’s sleep temperature can benefit a person in a variety of ways. Whether it’s needed to alleviate pain or simply create a more comfortable sleep environment, there are more than a few options on the market that allow consumers to control their temperature at night. So, how do you know which product is right for you?
What is the Best Cooling Mattress Topper?
Here we will compare ChiliSleep's Cube Sleep System to Sleep Number’s DualTemp Layer cooling mattress pads.
The Cube Sleep System with Chilipad™ Cool Mesh™ is the pioneer sleep system and bed cooling pad. The Chilipad Cool Mesh fits any bed size, featuring personalized sleep climate for one or both sides of the bed! Couples love the ability to set their specific temperature for their side of the bed, so they both can have the deep sleep they dreamed of.
The customer is able to operate their system from 55 to 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Cube houses a water circulation system that moves through a network of microtubes. When it comes to maintaining the desired temperature throughout the night, the water circulation system is key, as it is shown to retain temperature longer and more safely than an air or electrical system. This is due to the fact that water is able to sustain specific temperatures for longer periods of time than other substances.
The Cube only uses the same amount of energy as one light bulb, so you won’t have to worry about outrageous cooling or heating bills while you try to find your perfect temperature. The Cube has a small profile for a minimalist look.
The Sleep Number DualTemp Layer
The DualTemp Layer is built to fit any mattress or Sleep Number adjustable bed from an Extra Long Twin to a California King.
The consumer can choose from three specific levels- low, medium or high for both hot and cool settings for the sleep number cooling pad.
The DualTemp Layer maintains its temperature with a one-way air-circulation system, which may affect its ability to maintain temperature for prolonged amounts of time.
According to their website, a King or Queen DualTemp Layer will use approximately 200W depending on the user settings. This is comparable to a 40” LCD TV or standard desktop.
In comparison, not only does the Cube appear to be a better financial investment than sleep number dual temp layer, but it also allows the user to have more specific control over their sleep temperature.
Additionally, the Cube’s water-circulation system allows it to maintain these specific temperatures (warm or cooling) for longer amounts of time.
