Are you looking for the best cooling mattress after waking up in a sweat night after night, tossing and turning because you are too hot to sleep? If this answer is yes, you are not alone! Many memory foam mattress owners complain about this, and it is an issue inherent in all memory foam. The reason that memory foam “sleeps hot” is:
- The viscoelastic chemicals used to create the “memory” in memory foam absorbs your body heat in order to soften and conform to your curves.
- Once your body heat is absorbed and you sink into the mattress, it cradles you all night long in your own body heat as the heat is trapped with you rather than dissipating.
Many memory foam companies have tried to combat this issue in their mattresses with cooling gels to help dissipate the heat, but there is no proven evidence that this actually works. It is just a gimmick used by these companies to camouflage the heating issues.
How Is Nolah AirFoam™ Different?
So what is the best mattress for hot sleepers? The answer is the Nolah AirFoam™. And what exactly is Nolah AirFoam™ and how is it better than traditional memory foam at being the coolest mattress? Essentially, we use a special compression process that produces BILLIONS of microscopic air bubbles within the foam itself. This creates an incredible pressure relief system that can’t be matched by other mattresses, including the $5,000 ultra high-end memory foam you find in traditional mattress stores.No Heat Sensitive Viscoelastic Chemicals Used
Because we don't use the heat-sensitive viscoelastic chemicals in AirFoam™, your body heat is not stored within the mattress and trapped next to you all night long, meaning you sleep cooler and thus, more comfortably.
CertiPUR-US® Certified Foam - Foam That's Good for You
Nolah’s AirFoam™ is made from CertiPUR-US certified foams that are 100% free from harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, ozone depleters, heavy metals and chemicals flame retardants.
Superior Heat Dissipation
Traditional memory foam mattress reacts to your body heat in order to conform to the contours of your body, which is what you pay all the big bucks for, but that means that memory foam does the exact opposite of dissipating heat; it traps it next to you.
In comparison, Nolah AirFoam™ doesn’t retain body heat due to the fact that it’s produced without using any heat-sensitive chemicals, but also dissipates heat 20% faster than ultra high-end memory foam. The natural viscose cover on the mattress also helps to wick away moisture, also helping to keep you cool all night long.
No Seasonal Changes in Firmness
For anyone that has owned a memory foam mattress, particularly in regions that experience a lot of temperature fluctuations from season to season, you have probably noticed that your memory foam gets harder and softer, depending on the temperature of the air. This is, again, do to the viscoelastic chemicals in memory foam and so it absorbs the warmth in the air, making your bed softer in summer and harder in winter. This can make your quality of sleep fluctuate with the seasons and an inconsistent sleep is not a restorative sleep.
Since Nolah AirFoam™ is 100% temperature neutral, it will not get harder and softer with the changing of the seasons, and because of this consistency, you will be able to fall asleep faster and easier, stay asleep longer, wake up during the night less often, and in the morning, feel refreshed and ready to take on the day!
Customer Reviews on the Mattress with Cooling Technology
Reviews said Nolah is great for side sleepers, it is true!
“Well, I had a foam mattress from another vendor that was getting played out so I had to find something new. Nolah was one of three finalists on my list. Nolah won out because so many reviewers praised it for side sleepers. I have to say the reviews are true. I wake up refreshed every morning, even after late nights with a few too many! I have less interrupted sleep and I find I toss and turn much less. I like the top foam layer because it cradles you a bit without trapping you. It also does a great job pulling the heat away from you. This is an important factor for people who run warm like me.”
Best Mattress Ever!!!!
“We chose Norah after researching many, many, many mattresses. We decided we wanted to go with the mattress that was the coolest (temperature wise, no social standing!). The Nolan hasn't disappointed us. It is a very cool sleep and the right blend of firmness. We love it.”
Great comfort, cool feel
“Overall, this is a great mattress. Easy shopping experience, quick delivery, and piece-of-cake setup. Terrific comfort. Exceptional value. Hubby is a lighter sleeper and used to complain of back pains. They're gone since we got Nolah. Some people have concerns about a mattress sleeping too hot. Nolah does not - in fact, if anything, it's a little chilly for me. When I shift my sleeping position, the mattress feels cool. Admittedly, I am extremely sensitive to cool/cold. Most people would not even notice this, but I'm the person who gets goosebumps in a light breeze. Functionally, it's a great choice (and that's, by far, the most important feature when choosing a mattress).”
I have stopped counting how many nights I have slept well. Yup, it is that killer of a mattress!
“As a side sleeper, I find that it provides the right amount of give, and support. I am not waking up in the middle of the night in pain with that pinching feeling in my rotator cuff and numbness on the extremities. And boy does it sleep as cool as the other side of the pillow. I. LOVE. MY. NOLAH.”
It really is cooler sleep!!
“I went back and forth on which mattress to order for over a year. All of the options out there get so overwhelming and I would just give up over and over. After finally deciding it was time and lots and lots of research I finally settled on the Nolah. My biggest concern for a memory foam mattress was getting a hot sleeping mattress. The other things I was looking for were good for side sleepers, motion transfer, and I wanted a product with good reviews and made in the USA. Nolah checked all the boxes so I finally took the plunge! My husband and I have been sleeping on it for almost 2 months and we love it! IT REALLY DOES SLEEP COOL! Coming from a spring mattress the Nolah felt a little firm at first but we got used to it quickly. There is almost zero motion transfer, we don't even feel our fur babies jump on the bed anymore! Great mattress and great customer service!”
