Spring is in the air and temperatures are on the rise. For many people this warming trend is a welcomed sign of the season. For others, it magnifies a bigger issue… Sleeping Hot.
Temperature control is the number one unmet consumer need in regard to a mattress. In fact, 62% of American bedrooms have at least one hot sleeper. The problem of sleeping hot has drastic impact on the quality of sleep an individual gets throughout the night. Those who have trouble finding a temperature balance at night also report tossing and turning, waking up feeling tired, or hitting that proverbial wall mid-day. The reason? Science.
Our body temperature has a major impact on sleep. During the day, our core body temperature fluctuates depending on our activities and the external environment. At night, our core body temperature drops and balances as an important initial step that helps our brain trigger our natural sleep cycle. This “brain thermostat” is a crucial aspect of sleep, but that control mechanism actually turns off when we reach our REM sleep cycle and the body’s temperature then becomes very dependent on the external environment to maintain stability. If your mattress, pillows, or sheets retain heat your body temperature will begin to rise. Then, your brain is likely to kick back on its thermostat role, and in doing so you exit your REM sleep cycle. The result is you are not getting sustained REM sleep which is vital to a restorative and healthy slumber. See the problem?
This creates an entire segment of consumers that need more in a mattress than just comfort and pressure relief. A consumer problem needs a solution—and as advanced technologies make their way to the bedroom, we find the new Tempur Pedic Breeze Collection.
Tempur Pedic Breeze is designed to accomplish three important goals for a sleeper:
1. Sleep cool when you first lie down
When you touch a Tempur Pedic Breeze mattress you instantly notice the difference. The mattress has a SmartClimate Dual Cover System that works like a thermostat to control temperature on the sleep surface for the initial 20 minutes of contact. At initial contact, our body transfers heat onto any surface. Depending on that surface, the heat will either build up and warm the environment or dissipate and maintain coolness. The SmartClimate Dual Cover System has the ability to regulate that heat to help your body progress into a natural sleep cycle and begin the path towards restorative sleep.
2. Sleep cool while you fall asleep
Most mattresses have no problem maintain coolness and balanced temperature for a short period of time, but the Tempur Pedic Breeze mattress is designed to prevent heat buildup for a sustained period so that you aren’t interrupted in the early stages of sleep.
3. Sleep cool throughout the night
Two ingredients ensure an eight-hour sleep cycle will be met with temperature control. The first is the PureCool + Phase Change Material found beneath the cover. This layer works consistently throughout the night to take body heat and dissipate it throughout the mattress so that it is not reflected into the sleeper. The second layer is called Tempur-CM+ which does its part to cycle out heat and humidity trapped in the mattress. Both layers deliver a balanced sleep environment where heat buildup can be dealt with for an extended period of time.
The result? The Tempur Pedic Breeze mattress collection sleeps up to eight degrees cooler than any other mattress in the Tempur Pedic collection. The problem of heat build-up in a mattress now has a permanent solution that scientifically delivers a cooler, deeper sleep environment that has the power to positively impact quality of sleep and in turn the quality of life.
The Mattress Hub now introduces the newest innovation in sleep, Tempur Pedic Breeze. If sleeping hot is an issue then we encourage you to feel the breeze and change the way you sleep… forever.
