Tempurpedic Cloud Luxe Breeze vs Tempflow Celestia May 2014

I purchased a king size Cloud Luxe Breeze in February 2014. It was touted to be the coolest feeling mattress in the Tempurpedic line. Memory foam mattresses have historically been hot to sleep on, but many salespeople downplay that fact. The Tempurpedic salespeople stated the newer models are made of improved materials that have better airflow. The bed did feel cooler than the rest due to their Breeze material (extra $1000 option). Additionally, they wanted approximately $3000 more to have a split king, than just a 1 piece mattress. All they had to do was cut the mattress in half and put another cover on it. Their money back guarantee was good through 100 nights. All stores selling Tempurpedic are locked into selling that product for a fixed price. Was not exactly a bargain at $8900. My wife was in heaven, but she did not like it with the head of the bed raised slightly, which I needed for my reflux problem. I would wake up sweating after 3 to 4 hours. I returned to the store at least 3 times to discuss the heat issue. The store salespeople had no recommendations to deal with the overheating (are you kidding?). Did some online research at www.sleeplikethedead.com (an independent mattress comparison website) and bought a Feeling Cooler mattress cover for $300. Dr. Oz recommended it. It felt much cooler initially, but again after 3-4 hours – hot. Now if the bed were not so comfortable, I would not stay in one place and would roll onto my side, or to a cooler spot. Took all the mattress protectors and covers off and used a sheet only on their Breeze material cover. May have made the bed a little cooler, but I was still sweating after a few hours in one position. Found Relief Mart (Selectabed.com) online (through sleeplikethedead.com), who has the patented memory foam with holes drilled in all the layers down to a layer that had air chambers. Was a little leery, but it sounded like this was the thing that was missing from all the other mattresses. I buy few things sight unseen, so drove a few hours to the store in Westlake Village. Showroom was small but had full size mattresses of most of their models. When we first talked over the phone, they said they had a mattress comparable to the Tempurpedic Cloud Luxe. We tried it out and it did feel the same. We ordered one and In a couple short weeks, my bed was ready and was delivered. It is a California split king, that cost no more as a split then just as a single mattress. AND it was a fraction of the price of the Tempurpedic. We saved over $3000 and ended up with a better product. The adjustable base was less expensive and superior to what the other store was selling. I’ve had it for 2 months and no heat problems, even through the recent heat wave in Southern Ca. The tempflow claims to have lower VOC’s but I noticed an initially stronger smell than with the Tempurpedic, but it dissipated after a few days. Could have been because of the “encasement” cover that came with the Cloud Luxe Breeze.
