I received the DualTemp for evaluation purposes; all opinions are my own.
Have you ever woke up in the middle of the night freezing because you tossed all your blankets off? I used to do that all the time. Since I’ve been single I’ve had the luxury of sleeping on my new DualTemp from Sleep Number and can I just say, yay! I thought it would be awful sleeping in the bed alone but when I can roll from a cooler temp to a warmer temp it’s incredible.
Of course it’s great even if you’re not single. Especially for those who have totally opposite temperature preferences from their partner.
I went to the Sleep Number store in Dover, DE in August to check out the DualTemp and learn more about it. As soon as I laid down on it I was happy. They had it set on the coolest temperature and that’s what I normally want while I’m sleeping. I love to huddle under the warm blankets in a chilly room.
The DualTemp changes the atmosphere under the covers. It’s actually kind of fascinating but there’s no way I can relay it as well as the guys I met with did. Basically the box on the floor pulls in the air from your room and heats or cools it, pushes it through the tubes and into the mattress topper. There’s not a drastic temperature difference, it’s more like a 3 – 5 degrees difference.
I checked out some of the reviews before my DualTemp arrived. I was shocked at how many people didn’t like it or said it didn’t work. I started to worry that my in-store experience was a fluke. But then when it came and I started to play with it I began to understand some of the reasons people claimed to not like it, but I don’t think they were properly educated on use.
See, when you turn your DualTemp on it takes time to start noticeably working. I was told to give it at least 30 minutes to notice a difference. Also, during that time the DualTemp needs to be covered. Another thing, I think it really depends on the temperature of your room how hot/cold the DualTemp will get. You can’t expect a huge difference.
To me it sounds like some of these people weren’t as patient or informed. Because once I followed the directions I was amazed. My in-store visit wasn’t a fluke – it actually worked. There are times during the night where I want to be warmer or need to cool off.
The best part of sleeping alone with the DualTemp is I can set one side to warm and the other to cool. I simply roll as needed. Hey, I’m making the best out of the hand I was dealt! And thankfully the DualTemp makes that a lot more enjoyable.
If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a loved one, whether they’re single or not, the DualTemp is perfect. I’d definitely get one for yourself too, you’ll love it as long as you give it time to adjust to the temperature. Sleeping is so comfortable and welcomed now, I can’t imagine not sleeping on my DualTemp! Find your local Sleep Number store and test drive a DualTemp ASAP!
