How to Compare Sleep Number Vs. Comfortaire Beds

Sleep Number and Comfortaire are the two leading air mattress manufacturers. How do you know which mattress will work best for you? Of course, the best way is to sleep on it - literally. The best adjustable bed or air mattress will be the one that provides optimal rest and comfort.

Comfortaire offers a greater range of design, technology, and prices. The website is also easier to navigate and provides more answers than the Sleep Number site. On the other hand, the Sleep Number bed could be better for you if back pain is your problem, as it claims ‘clinical proof’ that it can reduce back pain.

If you don't want to use the free trials, however, you can also look at each company's warranty and policies to see what works for your body and budget. It’s important to do your research carefully before buying a bed, so take a look online, at the ads, and customer reviews for a well-rounded overview of your options.

An Overview of Comfortaire Beds

Comfortaire developed their brand over 30 years ago and markets itself as ‘the original air bed company.' Their beds are made in the US, and their original design is now the industry standard: deep-filled latex cotton chambers on the base of the mattress with a foam side wall at the edge. They use urethane alloy air chambers in them, which resist bacteria and mold and make them suitable for the allergy sufferer.

They are known for intensive research and patented technology. They developed and patented the ‘Box-Top Air’ and ‘Edge to Edge Air’ designs, which they claim improves your comfort. The new style chambers reduce and prevent the hammocking effect that they say can occur with the older design. ‘Box-Top Air’ places the air at the top of the mattress, and ‘Edge to Edge Air’ gives the same level of support from one side of the mattress to the other.

Comfortaire has a comprehensive website that includes an ‘ask the expert’ area, where potential customers can have their questions answered. You can also ‘compare all products’ and compare the results with competitor products. They take an upfront approach to show consumers why they feel Comfortaire is better than Sleep Number.
