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? Here we will compare Chili's Cube to Sleep Number’s DualTemp Layer mattress pad.
Cube is a dual-heating and bed cooling pad that is made to fit mattress sizes ranging from a Twin to a California King.
The customer is able to operate their system from 55 to 115 degrees Fahrenheit.
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.
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 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.
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 Cube appear to be a better financial investment than the DualTemp Layer, but it also allows the user to have more specific control over their sleep temperature. Additionally, Cube’s water-circulation system allows it to maintain these specific temperatures for longer amounts of time.
