“Baby, it’s cold outside” is on everyone’s mind with Old Man Winter breathing down our necks. Everyone is getting out their winter pajamas and heavy blankets. Everyone that is, except for you. It doesn’t matter how cold it gets outside, you can’t sleep without the window open and a fan on. Meanwhile, your significant other is on the other side of the bed buried under a mountain of covers with the electric blanket on high, and still shivering. If this sounds like your world at night, buying a mattress that is designed to help you stay cool at night from our Knoxville mattress store might be in your future.

Old-Fashioned Ideas, Better Cooling

If you want to sleep cooler at night, you need a mattress that is designed to allow for proper airflow, which, in turn, provides better cooling. Oddly enough, good old-fashioned innerspring mattresses are among those that offer the best cooling. The rows of coil springs leave wide open spaces for air to flow through the mattress, wicking away the heat and ensuring you enjoy a much cooler night’s sleep.

Latex Mattresses

Many people tend to overlook both natural and synthetic latex when buying a mattress because of tales that these materials sleep “hot” rather than “cool.” In our Knoxville mattress store, we carry the latest in latex mattresses that have been redesigned using new cellular technology that creates holes (among other methods of ventilation) throughout the mattress to help improve airflow and cooling at night.

Gel Mattresses

During the last few years, mattress manufacturers like Tempur-Pedic, Stearns & Foster, Bed’r Mattress, and Sealy have been working with gel foam and gel foam combinations to develop cool beds. The gel used has the ability to wick away large amounts of heat before the surface starts to feel warm to the touch. By adding substances such as graphite, copper, other types of gel, it is possible to extend the “cool” feeling for many hours.

Memory Foam

The original memory foam was developed for NASA to provide the astronauts with couches that would conform to their bodies and provide superior support during liftoff and their time in space. Today, many mattress manufacturers such as Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Bed’r Mattress, and Scott Living incorporate a layer of memory foam into their mattress designs. The use of open cell construction and infusion of numerous gels into design helps to create a mattress that is sure to help keep you cooler at night, ensuring more restful sleep. The good news is that just because buying a mattress like one of these will help you enjoy a much cooler night’s sleep, they will not make your loved one colder than they already are.
