Tempur-Pedic or Traditional Mattress?

The most significant difference between a Tempur-Pedic and a traditional mattress is the temperature control feature offered by Tempur-Pedic. Maintaining a comfortable body temperature is one of the most significant factors that can contribute to a good night’s sleep. If you have difficulty sleeping because you get too hot or too cold, this option may be better for you than a traditional mattress. There are models available that increase body heat and others that keep you cool. If your quality of sleep is suffering because you are either too hot or too cold at night, it might be time to check out a Tempur-Pedic from Albuquerque’s Mattress Center at American Home. Here are some more reasons to do so:

Chronic pain relief

Memory foam mattresses, such as the Tempur-Pedic line of products, are also a great option for anyone who suffers from chronic pain and has their sleep disrupted because of discomfort from their condition. Tempur-Pedic mattresses “remember” your sleeping shape, and even more helpful is the way that the mattress adapts to the shape of your body — your body heat warms the mattress, which helps it conform even more closely to the shape of your body, supplying the support that you need for a great night’s sleep.


Allergy sufferers are another group who benefit from memory foam mattresses. These mattresses are non-allergenic because they are made of polyurethane, a material that does not allow dust mites to adhere to it and collect on or in the mattress. The material also doesn’t allow other allergens to collect on the surface as easily as they would on other kinds of mattresses.

Motion transfer resistance

Finally, if your partner is an active sleeper and tosses and turns a lot, a memory foam Tempur-Pedic is a great choice. These mattresses have a feature called Motion Transfer Resistance that does exactly what the name suggests! The memory foam absorbs the motion in such a way that you will experience a lot less disruption and disturbance than with a traditional mattress.
