Disclaimer: I received a complimentary DualTemp Layer in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are honest and my own.
When they say that opposites attract, they aren’t lying! I’ve been married to my husband for over 13 years and while I love him to pieces there are several things that we just don’t agree on. For instance I am the type of person who gets cold very easily and he is the type that is hot all the time. When it comes to personal comfort, there have been a few arguments over our bedroom temperature throughout the years. A few weeks ago Sleep Number asked me if I would like to review their DualTemp Layer and of course I said yes. I’ll try anything that makes both a happy husband and a happy wife.
Before our DualTemp Layer arrived my husband and I (along with the kids) headed to our local Sleep Number store to see first hand how this amazing product works. If you have never been to a Sleep Number store, you have got to go! You can test out their newest mattresses, pillows, bedding and of course the DualTemp Layer with no obligation to buy. The Sleep Number folks will even test you out to see what your personal Sleep Number is. My number is a 30 just in case you were wondering.
The DualTemp Layer is a temperature balancing layer with ActiveAir technology that can be added to any bed. The ActiveAir Technology heats or cools each side of the layer and allows you to select what temperature level you would like with just the push of a button. The temperature of the air, whether it’s hot or cold is evenly distributed throughout the layer so you can have head to toe comfort.
The DualTemp Layer is delivered right to your door. Everything comes inside one large box and its easy enough for one person to handle. In fact I was so excited to set the DualTemp Layer up that I did everything by myself in under 20 minutes. The layers each come with their own smaller box which contains a remote, batteries and fan.
The layer itself is just few inches thick and just lays on top of your mattress. There are two tubes at the top each connecting to their own fan. The fan makes a slight buzzing sound but it’s very minimal. In fact after the first night, I don’t even notice it anymore.
As you can probably notice from the picture above we don’t own a Sleep Number Mattress (that’s on the Christmas wish list). That’s no problem though, when it comes to the DualTemp Layer because it will fit on top of any mattress. We actually have a pretty large king size bed and it fits snuggly over the top. I will also mention that the layer stays put during the night. My husband tosses and turns all night long and I was a little worried whether it would slide off the bed, but it doesn’t.
Each side of the layer is controlled by a remote. When you set up the layer you can program the remote for the specific person who will be sleeping on that side. Programing is easy and you can recognize who’s remote is who’s by the name on the front. The great thing about these remotes is that it remembers what you had the setting on the last time you slept. So as soon as you turn it on, it automatically goes back to that temperature.
There is also a timer on the remote which automatically turns off the layer. The timer ranges from 1-9 hours and shuts off automatically after 10 hours. I use this setting often because I like to set my layer on the warmest setting but I don’t want to get too hot while I sleep, so I just set the timer for 1 hour and I’m good to go. Before having the DualTemp Layer my husband would get so hot at night that he would wake up drenched in sweat, even with a fan blowing directly on him. After sleeping on the layer for the past 2 weeks he hasn’t noticed any perspiration at all because he stays cool throughout the night.
We have had the DualTemp Layer for a little over two weeks now and I can honestly say that I don’t think I have slept this good in years. When I get into bed my side is nice and warm and my husband’s is cool and cozy. No more bedroom arguments about who’s cold and who’s hot because we are able to adjust our own individual sides to fit our comfort level. In addition to the temperature the layer adds just enough extra comfort to feel like I am sleeping on a different mattress. It’s really soft and reminds me of sleeping on a marshmallow cloud.
My kids also LOVE the Dual Layer and in fact they spend a lot more time on my bed reading their books, watching TV and snuggling with me and my husband. The only downfall is I have a hard time keeping my bed made with everyone wanting to take a turn laying on it.
