Your health depends on quality rest night after night and your mattress is an integral part of the equation. In addition to a peaceful sleep environment and healthy habits, you need a bed that provides support and comfort. At Bedding Plus, our goal is to help you find a mattress you love. With so many options to choose from, the decision can be overwhelming, but our team is always here to help. If you’re searching for premium options, adjustable air mattresses like the Instant Comfort number bed system may be exactly what you need. Here’s what you should know about this advanced sleep technology.

What Is an Adjustable Air Mattress?

While there are benefits to going with a traditional mattress, there is no option for customized comfort. What you buy is what you get, for years to come.

On the other hand, an adjustable air mattress allows you to change how your mattress feels every single time you hop into bed. Do you need extra firmness for back pain on some nights? Are you more likely to want a plush softness after a tough workout? Perhaps you and your partner have different preferences when it comes to the feel of your mattress and wants your own sleeping zones?

With an adjustable air mattress, you have the power to upgrade your mattress with the push of a button, resulting in perfect comfort every night. These adjustable air mattresses, or airbeds as they’re also called, contain individual air chambers that can be inflated or deflated to customize the feel of your mattress. By adding or taking away air, you have complete control over the firmness of your bed across different pressure points.

These are nothing like the blow-up mattresses you may use on trips away from home or host temporary guests. These are premium, long-term mattress technology with the same layers of comfort foam found in traditional mattresses. From there, you can choose from a variety of advanced features like:

  • A customizable top cover with a warm winter side and a summer side enhanced with smart fabric to keep you cool
  • A zippered pillow-top mattress cover that you can remove to clean or access the interchangeable comfort components of your mattress
  • Expertly designed layers, such as gel-infused visco-elastic foam, multiple layers of memory foam for support, and contoured foam above the air chambers

Ideal Sleepers for Adjustable Air Mattresses

With the technology of adjustable air beds, you take control of your sleep. Adjustable air chamber mattresses allow for the ultimate sleep experience because you can pinpoint areas that need more or less support.

This type of mattress is ideal for individuals prone to back pain or other muscle aches due to sleep issues, as well as couples with different firmness needs.

At Bedding Plus, our adjustable air mattresses are available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, California King, and Split California King sizes. This means sleepers of all ages can enjoy the benefits of adjustable comfort.

What Are Adjustable Air Mattress Benefits?

Perhaps the greatest benefit of an adjustable air mattress is the unique opportunity to meet your individual needs while sleeping with a partner. Because we all have different preferences when it comes to a mattress, it can be difficult to strike a balance.

An adjustable air chamber mattress gives each person control over their own side of the bed. Depending on the model you choose, you can even opt for split-foam dual adjustability bedframes.

This is ideal for those who like to read, work, or even watch television while lying in bed. Incline the headboard or prop your feet with the click of a button. With these types of mattresses, you can sit up while your partner is fully reclined. Your partner can raise their knees to relieve pressure on their back, while you lay flat.

It’s also worth mentioning that most air chamber mattresses do not trap heat. This is ideal for sleepers who tend to get warm throughout the night. Look for comfort layers that don’t include overly dense memory foam in order to maximize cooling properties.

Adjustable air mattresses benefits include the following.

  • Customization: Provide smart, premium adjustable comfort that can easily be customized for each sleeper
  • Reduce sleep issues: Target sleep-related issues such as snoring, sleep apnea, heartburn, or even back pain
  • Sleep support: Offer optimal support for every area of your body by adjusting different parts of the mattress
  • Decrease motion transfer: Effectively cut down on motion transfer when sleepers shift positions or get in and out of bed

Drawbacks of Adjustable Airbeds

Like most purchases, there are always pros and cons to every mattress type. For starters, premium adjustable airbeds tend to be one of the more expensive types of mattresses on the market due to their use of cutting-edge technology.

Before you invest in adjustable air beds, you should know that:

  • Routine maintenance may be necessary to keep adjustability mechanisms in working order
  • Not great with technology? It may be difficult for some to use the remote technology or smartphone apps to make adjustments
  • Noise may be noticeable in lower-quality models when making adjustments due to the electric motor

How Do Adjustable Air Mattresses Work?

Most air mattresses contain internal air chambers that you can adjust by adding or taking away air. Depending on the mattress, there may be as many as ten different air chambers throughout the bed. Generally speaking, more chambers usually allow for better customization on each side of the mattress. This gives you and your partner the comfort of a bed that is tailored to your own preferences.

How many options are available then when you sleep on adjustable air mattresses? You will typically have anywhere between 20 to 100 different settings that can be calibrated to provide firmness or softness in different areas. You can easily change these settings with a provided remote control or a convenient app on your phone.

It’s important to remember that the construction of each mattress is unique, so these are just general attributes. Components can vary depending on the specific model you choose. Remember, added comfort layers will also change the various parts and feel of your bed.
