Opposites Can Get a Restful Night's Sleep with #SleepNumber #DualTemp Layer

I love to travel and see new places, but the one thing that always makes me happy is coming home to my own bed.  But even when we are home, there is always a "battle" between me and my husband about the temperature in our home, especially in our bedroom.  My husband is always hot, he likes the air on super cold, and he also turns on a fan next to his side of the bed.  Sometimes he still wakes up complaining that its too hot.  I, on the other hand, am ALWAYS cold.  ALWAYS.  It can be 100 degrees outside and I will still sleep covered up to my chin with a pile of blankets.  I was so excited to find out that there was a product out there that fixed our little dilemma, Sleep Number's DualTemp layer.

What DualTemp is, is a layer that goes on top of your mattress.  It uses ActiveAir technology to balance the temperature of your bed.  Air circulates through the layer and evenly distributes the warm or cool temperature.  Each side of the DualTemp can be set to heat or cool via individual remotes and there are three settings for cool and three settings for warm.  If you would like to see just how opposite me and my husband are, here is a picture of our remotes...

Guess who's is the one set to super warm... and his of course is set to super cool.  I have to say, I love the DualTemp and use it everyday.  It takes like 15 to 20 minutes to warm up (or cool down) to your desired temperature so I like to turn it on before my shower, then get into my nice warm bed.  It instantly relaxes me.  Its not hot like a heating pad, it is just warm and cozy.  The cool setting really cools, my husband stays comfortable all night and does not wake up sweating.  There is also a fan setting, in between the warm and cool, which circulates room temperature air.  I really like that you can set the timer on each controller for up to 9 hours, then it automatically shuts off.

The DualTemp layer is very comfortable to sleep on, there are no wires or cords like an electric blanket.
There is a very quiet sound, much like a fan, that is actually very soothing and calming.  I was a little worried about the additional thickness that it was going to add to our pillow top mattress, I thought that our fitted sheets would not fit over it, but they fit just fine.  The top of the outer cover can be zipped off and washed in the washing machine on gentle cycle in cold water.  I would probably not risk putting it in the dryer, although I have not tried it, I would not want it to shrink.  My suggestion would be to hang it up to dry.  You can also purchase replacement filters for the DualTemp layer right on their website for only $19.99, these should be washed or replaced every six months.

I cannot say enough good things about this product, it is one of my favorite things in my home.  Not only can my husband and I stop arguing over the temperature in the bedroom, but we can also both get a restful nights sleep.  I really missed my DualTemp when we were in Tennessee, I know I sound spoiled, but I really did.

If you want to check out more details about DualTemp of Sleep Number products, you can visit their website by clicking HERE.  The DualTemp comes in three sizes, twin extra long, queen and king and it also comes with a three year limited warranty, which should make you sleep even better.

I will be staying in Chicago this weekend for BlogHer at a very nice hotel, but I will be dreaming of my bed at home with the DualTemp on it, so warm and cozy.
