Like so many other people reading this right now, I have trouble sleeping at night. You probably feel so alone when it’s 3:00 AM and you’ve been lying awake for hours on end. But millions upon millions of other people out there have sleep problems of their own.
Whether you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, the real issue is that there are so many different things that can cause difficulty sleeping. Many of us suffer from stress, anxiety, or even medical issues like insomnia. But for countless other people out there, the problem is often environmental. Sometimes sounds in and around your home might wake you up and all you need is a good pair of earplugs. Or perhaps it’s an issue of comfort in your bed, in which case you should consider better pillows and perhaps even a mattress topper.
Believe it or not, temperature control is one of the most common reasons people wake up in the middle of the night. That’s why I jumped at the chance to try the OOLER Sleep System when Chilisleep reached out to see if we wanted to check it out.
Do you go to sleep under a blanket and wake up in the middle of the night with all your sheets balled up at the foot of the bed? Or perhaps you crank up the climate control in your whole house just so that you’re more comfortable in bed at night while you sleep. In either case, there’s a much smarter way to control your temperature at night while you sleep. Instead of changing your AC settings or shifting your blankets around all night, you can actually control the temperature of your bed instead.
The OOLER Sleep System is a surprisingly comfortable mattress topper pad that has a network of tubes inside. The pad connects to either one or two machines that sit on the floor next to your bed. Those units are filled with water that you can heat or cool to very precise temperatures, and then the water is pumped through the tubes in the mattress topper. As a result, OOLER controls the temperature of your sleep surface and raises or lowers it all night long while you sleep.
With the OOLER, the main thing is playing with it when you first get it so you can figure out the best temperature path to keep you comfortable while you sleep. Thanks to the accompanying app, you can configure OOLER to adjust the temperature as much and as often as you want. Most people set it so that it warms up their bed at first so it’s nice and toasty when they go to sleep. Then, they cool it down over the course of the night to prevent overheating and keep them nice and comfy.
I’m still fine-tuning things myself, but I can already notice a big difference in the quality of sleep I’ve been getting. My only real complaint so far is that the mattress pad tends to shift and bunch a bit as you roll around in your sleep. That said, I’ve been tossing and turning much less than I used to now that I’ve started using the OOLER, and I think things will improve even more as I continue to adjust the temperature settings.
OOLER’s Sleep System is now available on Amazon, and it’s a new version that launched recently with a whole bunch of improvements. Pricing starts at $749 for the queen-size system with one zone for one person, which OOLER calls a ME setup, and the WE setup with two zones for two people doubles the price.
It’s worth every penny and more if it works for you, of course, but now is actually the perfect time to give OOLER a try. Until the end of the month, there’s a special sale that slashes 20% off every size OOLER system. ME and WE setups are both covered as well, so pricing starts at just $599.20 and you can save up to $320!
