Beat the Heat: Mattresses to Keep You Cool While You Sleep

Spring is around the corner, and while a return to warmer temperatures and higher humidity levels is mostly welcome, cozy winter nights wrapped up in blankets are unfortunately on the way out. The deep sleep of winter months, with dark evenings and mornings, is also facilitated by cool nights. As summer approaches, it can be harder to create the same atmosphere in your bedroom. So if you’re worried about sleeping hot, we’ve got the best mattresses for keeping you cool.

Stay cool with the latest technology from Serta

Serta’s new Arctic mattress line is built to keep you cool all night long. The Artic Plush Memory Foam Mattress offers firm support with plush comfort while the Arctic Premier Firm Memory Foam Mattress offers firm support with firm comfort. Both feature an exclusive, three-part Reactex® System designed to pull heat away from your body and down into the mattress for consistently cool relief. High-density memory foam offers comfortable support, while two layers of gel-infused foam increase airflow with pressure-relieving ease. Serta’s new and improved foam core creates uniform edge-to-edge support for any sleeping position.

Slip into soft, cool sheets

These rayon from bamboo sheets will make sleeping through those summer nights a little bit easier. The porous composition of the rayon from bamboo fibers makes the fabric more breathable and temperature regulating than other fabrics. The pores are ideal for sensitive skin and will keep you cool and dry as the fabric wicks moisture away from your body. These sheets also happen to be antibacterial and resistant to odors.

If you love the feel of 100% cotton sheets, these are soft and breathable and will keep you cool on a hot night.

Use your mattress protector

Summer is definitely not the time to forget your mattress protector. If you do sweat during the night, you’ll want to make sure your mattress is protected and that it stays clean no matter what. It’s much easier to throw a mattress protector into the washing machine than it is to deep clean your mattress.

Drop the temperature in your bedroom as much as you can

Part of getting a good night’s sleep during the summer means making sure you can get your bedroom to a comfortable sleeping temperature. That might mean you need to close your blinds or curtains during the day, use fans, and try to cool down your body temperature before bed. Avoid strenuous workouts late in the evening or extra hot showers before you climb into bed.
