Electric blankets and heated mattresses have been around for decades, but cooling devices such as the Chilipad and the BedJet are more recent innovations. The Chilipad is a mattress with an integrated temperature regulation system that provides heating and cooling, and can be adjusted in one degree increments from 55° to 110° Fahrenheit (13° to 43° Celsius). To ensure that your Chilipad remains in good condition, it is important to know how to properly clean and maintain it. The mattress protectors of the Chilipad are machine washable in a front-loading washing machine.
To minimize the risk of shaking in the spin cycle, secure the extension with an elastic band or other means. We recommend washing the pad as often as the control unit. Do not bleach, iron or dry clean the pad. Make sure the pad is completely dry before reconnecting it to a power source.
To wash the OOLER hydronic pad, use a front-loading washing machine (one without a shaker). Hold the tubes of the pad with a thick rubber, string, etc. Wash them with cold water on a delicate cycle. To dry the pad, keep the tubes secured and dry on a delicate cycle without heat.
The cover and pad can be washed in cold water on the gentle cycle and air dried.Chili Technology offers a 30-day free sleep test so that you can try out their ChiliPad without committing. If you decide to take advantage of this offer, make sure you carefully follow the specific conditions so that you can return the ChiliPad without problems. Neurologist Chris Winter, president of Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine in Virginia and author of two books on how to sleep better, is not financially compensated by ChiliPad but should probably be by the amount of praise he gives him. A public relations representative from ChiliSleep confirmed his suspicions and said that it is a common experience for many ChiliPad users.ChiliSleep also manufactures another system, the Ooler, which is essentially a ChiliPad with extras, such as an application that allows you to pre-cool the bed.
Chilipad owners add hot or cold water, which circulates through the tubes before reaching the Cube. To drain the bucket, use an H-shaped tool that comes with the Chilipad pad; the cross-shaped end is used to drain the bucket and the hollow end is used to drain the mattress.Factors such as the sleeping person's body weight and temperature in their room can prevent the Chilipad from reaching its preset temperature. To ensure that your Chilipad works optimally, it is important to keep it clean and well maintained. The mattress protectors are machine washable in a front-loading washing machine; secure any extensions with an elastic band or other means to minimize shaking in the spin cycle.
The cover and pad can be washed in cold water on a gentle cycle and air dried. By following these simple steps for cleaning your Chilipad mattress protector and OOLER hydronic pad, you can ensure that your device remains in good condition for years to come.
