Sleeping Hot: The Primary Cause Of A Poor Night's Sleep

Posted by Lauren Juarez on




Do you sleep hot?  According to research, sleeping “too hot” is one of the primary causes of a lousy night's sleep.  And according to Consumer Trends “Exclusive Better Sleep Council Research” in March 2017’s edition of “Sleep Savvy”, comfort and support are the most important features in a mattress; with a whopping 60% of consumers surveyed listing a mattress that ‘stays cool’ as an important factor when it comes to the overall quality of sleep (“What moves consumers to replace their mattress?”, pg. 42).  A survey done by the National Sleep Foundation asked respondents to rate the importance of several elements of their sleep experience in getting a good night’s sleep (“Bedroom Poll Report”, pg. 24) and found that 79% of those surveyed (about two-thirds or more!) rated room temperature as an important factor.  And yet another survey by “The National Sleep Research Project” cited something similar:  “To drop off we must cool off; body temperature and the brain's sleep-wake cycle are closely linked.  That's why hot summer nights can cause a restless sleep. The blood flow mechanism that transfers core body heat to the skin works best between 18 and 30 degrees. But later in life, the comfort zone shrinks to between 23 an 25 degrees - one reason why older people have more sleep disorders.” ( “40 facts about sleep you probably didn’t know…” )

With all the research that has been done, finding the cooling mattress of your dreams is now easy and breezy.

Do you prefer a traditional feeling mattress?   Mattresses constructed with innersprings or individually wrapped coils allow for outstanding heat dispersion.   Innersprings and coils offer more airflow throughout the mattress to provide better cooling.  If you prefer a bouncier mattress option, latex might be the way to go.  Not only are latex mattresses known for their durability, they’re also not known for conducting heat.  What does that mean? That means that they have more holes or other types of aeration which makes them more breathable than other mattresses.

With so many options to choose from, you’re sure to find a cooling mattress to meet your needs.  At Mattress By Appointment we possess the knowledge to answer some of your most difficult mattress buying inquiries, as well as provide you with an abundance of cooling mattresses to test drive and choose from.  And we offer our selection at 50-80% retail pricing!  So, take some time to delve into the plethora of information about the coolest of the cool in cooling mattress technologies and then give us a call, we know you'll be happy you did.
