We’re still working within the parameters of that tenuous ‘getting to know you’ phase in regards to the new Tempurpedic line. If you read our previous review on the Tempur-Cloud Supreme Breeze, you’ll know information on the Breeze line is hard to come by. As the details start to unfurl, we’re here to provide a general overview of what the latest offering from Tempurpedic is promising. We’ll also draw comparison to one of our favorite memory foam mattress brands, Amerisleep.
As mentioned before, the new Breeze technology comes on the heels of countless consumer complaints about Tempurpedic mattresses retaining heat. It’s a notorious issue that has plagued the company if a multitude of internet search results are any indication. Naturally, it makes sense for the mattress company to take a step toward addressing the issue but the timing is curious. For the most part, issues of heat retention have gone by the wayside since the company was founded.
Tempur-Rhapsody Breeze Materials
Even direct inquiries to Tempurpedic about the composition of the Tempur-Rhapsody Breeze have yielded rather vague results. As mentioned previously, the company is advertising the Breeze technology to produce a cooling touch on contact, help regulate body heat to prevent overheating and funneling excessive heat away from the body in general. We can’t help but noting Tempurpedic has received some dismal grades in the aforementioned categories in years past. It’ll be left to consumers in the coming months to validate any of these lofty claims.
We’re approaching the Tempurpedic Breeze technology with caution until we manage to get it in the hands of our reviewers. The Tempur-Rhapsody Breeze, while featuring an identical warranty, still boasts the familiar steep price tags associated with its predecessors. It takes time to work out the kinks with any new material, if the one thing holding you back from buying Tempurpedic was the heat issue we advocate waiting.
Most recently, after running some further investigation, early reports are indicating the only difference between Breeze Technology and original models is a mattress cover. Our early apprehension is further validated if the information proves to be true. A mattress cover does nothing to alter the actual memory foam material, material that has long been condemned for overheating. While a mattress cover can feel cool to the touch, we believe it’s what is beneath the hood that matters most.
