How does our mattress work for warming or cooling? Chili Technology uses water to generate a wide range of temperature control in the bed on our cooling mattress. Similar to the semiconductor technology that cools the computer, water passes through the chip and, depending on the direction of the electron flow, the water cools or heats up. Water flows through soft coils on the mattress, actively adjusting the temperature of the bed surface. There is nothing but water flowing through the mattress; all temperature changes occur in the control unit conveniently located next to the bed.
This makes it easy to change from an alternative warm electric blanket to a comfortable cooling mattress pad. Although there are bed heating and cooling systems that use dry air, the chilipad uses water because of its efficiency. For effective cooling, the water inside the tubes helps it to take effect quickly and the same applies to heating. Also, if you have ever wondered about the possibility of comfort while sleeping on a pad filled with water, remember that it is very thin and the tubes are very small, so they do not affect your sleeping comfort at all.
You can rest assured that it will feel like sleeping on your normal comfortable mattress. The Chilipad is a mattress protector that will warm and cool your bed through the use of water. The pad has tubes that circulate everywhere that circulate hot or cold water depending on your temperature preferences. The Chilipad pad is an ideal solution for warm 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 Chilipad Sleep System is a mattress that connects, through a long, flat tube, to a cube that regulates temperature. To use it, pour water into the bucket (more details about it in a moment) and adjust the temperature from a dial on the cube or a remote control that comes with it. The cube's temperature range is 55 to 110 degrees Fahrenheit (or 13 to 43 degrees Celsius), so you can make it colder or warmer while you sleep. The cube is where the magic happens, heating and cooling the water (depending on what the user wants when he sleeps), before pumping the temperature-controlled water through the tube into the pad, which is filled with smaller silicone tubes.
You should also clean the control unit once a month by emptying it, filling it with distilled water and Chilipad cleaning solution, letting it run at high temperature for 1 hour and draining it afterwards. Chilipade recommends using a blanket or comforter to help insulate the bed for best results. The Chilipad is ideal for people who are tired of sleeping warm and want to experience maximum comfort during sleep. ChiliSleep, the company that sells the ChiliPad and the Cube system, manufactures another system, the Ooler, which is essentially a ChiliPad with extras, such as an application that allows you to pre-cool the bed.
A positive side of the Chilipad is that it automatically shuts off when the water is not enough or has been reduced too much, so you don't have to worry that the Chilipad will break down because it ran out of water. A public relations representative from ChiliSleep confirmed his suspicions and said that it is a common experience for many ChiliPad users. I don't want to be too technical, but you can see that you will save a lot of energy and money with the use of a Chilipad. This device heats a mattress easily, but the real benefit of the Chilipad is its ability to cool a mattress.
I test the chilipad for an hour in these settings before taking a temperature reading with my thermal camera. You can also regulate the temperature with the Chilipad control unit, but you may never have to use it since you have the remote control. With the Chilipad cube by your side, you worry less about how the overall climate affects your sleep. You must ensure that Chilipad is set up correctly; avoid operating the control unit if there is no water inside.
In this section, I'll tell you what I liked about the Chilipad, what I didn't like, and give you an overview of how to configure it. Your skin isn't meant to come into direct contact with the Chilipad, but it's made of a cotton-polyester blend that seems to add a little more cushion to my mattress. That's why the Chilipad comes in a “US” option for couples, and a “ME” model for those who sleep alone. .
