It’s So Hot!

“People tell me that Tempur-Pedic mattresses sleeps hot.” I often hear this statement from customers who are shopping for a mattress at Olinde’s Mattress Superstore. My response to this statement is generally along the lines that in the past few years most companies have added new technology in certain lines of their mattresses to keep those mattresses cool. Tempur-Pedic’s line with the added technology is called the “Breeze” (see below for image of Tempur-Pedic's "Rhapsody Breeze"). Sealy Posturepedic’s line is called “OptiCool,” and Restonic’s line is called “Outlast.”



For the sake of this blog we will refer to this technology as Outlast, and the world’s greatest minds came up with this technology. Outlast was created and used in NASA’s space suits to regulate temperature for astronauts. Then, somehow, someone came up with the bright idea of making mattresses cooler.

Have you ever woken up in a puddle of sweat? It’s pretty unpleasant. So, the point of Outlast in a mattress is to prevent people from waking up in a puddle of sweat, or from kicking their covers off in the middle of the night, or from putting their thermostats on 64º. To make things even better, this Outlast technology is supposed to keep you cool for about seven hours each night.

If you want to intensify the coolness of your mattress even more, then here are a few additional suggestions. One, consider a latex mattress. Latex mattresses are heat neutral, so the mattress won’t warm up with your body heat nor will it be too cool in a cold room. Two, place a mattress protector on your mattress. Olinde’s Mattress Superstore sells a Dri-Tec mattress protector by Bedgear that is made with a material that actually wicks away moisture and it is a breathable material that will keep your mattress cool. The final suggestion would be to put low thread count sheets on your bed. I know it sounds funny, but the higher quality, higher thread count sheets have a tendency to act almost like a blanket that traps heat in the mattress.

If you would like more information, then please feel free to come into Olinde’s Mattress Superstore’s two locations (4201 Perkins Rd., Baton Rouge, Louisiana or 10218 Sullivan Rd., Central, Louisiana), call me at 225-378-3003 or email me at andrew@olindes.com.

  1. HISTORICAL FACTS BY FAITH BY STEVE FINNELL

    Why do I believe that the Bible is God's truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? Why? Because of the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ! Why do I believe in the resurrection? Why? Because it is a historical fact, recorded in the Bible. There are no living eye witnesses to the resurrection; I accept the historical record in the Bible, by faith.

    CAN HISTORICAL RECORDS BE TRUSTED?

    Most men accept that Hannibal was born in 247 B.C. and was considered the greatest military tactician and strategist in European history. Why do men believe this? There are no living eye witnesses, so the historical record is accepted, by faith.

    George Washington was the first president of the United States of America 1788-1797. Men accept this as fact, by faith, because of the historical record. There are no eye witnesses who are still alive.

    1 Corinthians 15:3-8 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that He appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6 After that He appeared to more than five hundred brethren at one time, most of whom remain until now, but some have fallen asleep; 7 then He appeared to James, then to all the apostles; 8 and at last of all, as to one untimely born, He appeared to me also.

    I believe the Bible to be God's record for mankind. I believe it because of the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. I accept this as accurate historical facts, by faith.

    THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS FROM THE GRAVE PUTS HIM IN A CLASS BY HIMSELF!

    MEN ACCEPT SECULAR HISTORICAL FACT, BY FAITH.

    WHY DO MEN NOT ACCEPT GOD'S BIBLICAL HISTORICAL FACTS, BY FAITH?
