On average, July is the hottest month of the year, leaving many residents struggling with ways to beat the heat. During the hot summer months, it’s difficult to stay cool while sleeping, a common complaint which can result in sleep loss from tossing and turning in bed to find that elusive cool spot.

NASA (yes, the space folks) designed a material that helps regulate body temperature during sleep. Thankfully, it’s not just for the astronauts anymore. That material is now found in the In Balance bedding collection from Sleep Number.

Sleep Number In Balance products include: mattresses, mattress pads, mattress layers, blankets, sheet sets, pillow cases, and pillow protectors.

So, stop kicking off the sheets in the middle of the night. Quit flipping over the pillow again and again to find the “cool” side. A comfortable summer night’s sleep is available from Sleep Number. Try temperature balancing sleep solutions from Sleep Number.

Excess heat — or cold — at night can certainly make us uncomfortable and disrupt sleep. That’s why Select Comfort offers temperature balancing material in its Sleep Number products, including:


Sleep Number utilizes a material developed for NASA, called Outlast adaptive comfort, which helps regulate body temperature during sleep. The material, found in the complete line of Sleep Number InBalance products, helps provide a more comfortable sleeping environment by balancing temperature swings, a common sleep disturbance.

Outlast Adaptive Comfort fabric technology is designed to reduce the temperature swings that can cause restless nights — to help you sleep more comfortably every night. The human body naturally sweats to cool the skin, reducing the ability of bedding, clothing and footwear to keep the body dry and comfortable. Outlast technology, conversely, keeps individuals more comfortable by absorbing body heat when too much is created, thereby diminishing the amount of moisture the body creates. Outlast material is designed to wick moisture and draw heat away from the body, absorbing and releasing it as needed, maintaining a more optimal comfort zone.

CoolFit Foam

One of the most commonly expressed criticisms of memory foam is that it is too hot. To solve this problem, Sleep Number created CoolFit Foam. This foam combines with gel technology for pillows that provide cooler, more-supportive sleep. Gel foam with wave design lets air flow freely through zones that adjust during sleep. Infused with pure baking soda, CoolFit Foam pillows will also stay fresh and odor free.
