The chilipad offers a wide range of temperature options from 55 to 115 degrees, giving people who sleep more accurate control over their sleep temperature. The Chilipad can be adjusted to 55 degrees or 115 degrees. Choosing the right temperature is largely a matter of personal preference, so I suggest gradually experimenting with different temperature settings until you find the right one. The ChiliPad sits flat under the fitted sheet and is reversible, with one mesh side designed for a cooler sleep and a cotton/polyester blend on the other side for those (like me) who prefer a warmer bed.
Sleep as you normally would with a blanket, and the pad promises to keep the temperature around your body constant throughout the night. A remote control allows you to set the temperature between 55 and 115 degrees Fahrenheit from the bed. Looking at those three digits, I had to force myself to remember that this test was for Carter. The temperature settings of the Chilipad are surprisingly responsive.
One person can use the ChiliPad and the other person can get the warmest air temperature they want. For example, I have used my Chilipad half king both on a king size bed in my master bedroom and on a queen size mattress in my guest room. Some of you may already know this, but keeping your body at a cool temperature can help you fall asleep faster and Chilipad definitely did it for me. I could go to the engineer and talk about the use of energy in watts converted into BTUs in cooling, talk about the BTUs in the heat released by the body, the volume of water that flows through the chilipad, the measured temperature of the water entering and the water that comes out, etc.
That means you need two Chilipads (including two controls) units) to cool both sides of the mattress. The Chilipad is an ideal solution for hot sleepers because there aren't many effective ways to keep you cool at night, especially on the surface of the mattress where your body will trap heat. The Cube sleep system consists of a control unit (the cube) and a soft mattress topper (called Chilipad) that features microtubes made of medical grade silicone. It's not necessary, but if you choose to use a mattress protector, be sure to place it under the Chilipad instead of on top of it to maintain the best possible cooling performance.
It's not huge, but if you already have things like a dehumidifier, fan or heater in your room, adding the Chilipad cube could create a messy look. Electric blankets and heated mattresses have been around for decades, but cooling devices such as ChiliPad and BedJet are more recent innovations. Winter also said that he has recommended the ChiliPad to many professional athletes who sweat a lot, and that he doesn't know about a single one who didn't like it. I have the chilipad under my bed and away from my side so that the noise is muffled and not bad at all (for me).
The ChiliPad is manufactured in the United States and is headquartered in Mooresville, North Carolina, just north of Charlotte.
