Tempur-Pedic is one of the oldest mattress manufacturers in the US. They were born back in 1992, and merged with Sealy Corporation in 2012, thus becoming Tempur Sealy International.
The idea behind Tempur was to create a material that helped NASA’s pilots have better aircraft seating, so they would have higher chances of survival in case of an accident.
Tempur-Pedic currently provides four different mattresses to irs consumers, but some of these mattresses also have their variations. For instance, the TEMPUR-Adapt is available in a medium firmness, but also has a medium hybrid option. The base models provided by Tempur-Pedic are the TEMPUR-ProAdapt, The TEMPUR LuxeAdapt, TEMPUR-Adapt, and TEMPUR-Breeze.
However, it’s important to mention that Tempur-Pedic is known for changing its mattress collection more often compared to other mattress manufacturers, so if you’re reading this at a later time, there are chances of the brand having another bed line-up.
Since there are similarities, but also differences between each Tempur-Pedic mattress, it’s important for every potential buyer to understand what this collection of beds has to offer.
The TEMPUR-Adapt has two different designs: one is made with entirely out of foam, while the other is a hybrid model. The former mattress is based on a high-density polyfoam core, meant to provide support to the sleepers, while having a comfort layer made from memory foam.
The hybrid version of this mattress is made with a layer of pocketed coils, which is covered by memory foam. The similarities between the two are: the cooling covers and the medium feel of both mattresses.
The TEMPUR-ProAdapt is also available in two distinct forms: memory foam and hybrid. The memory foam version can be purchased in three firmness levels: soft, medium, and firm. Much like the TEMPUR-Adapt, the ProAdapt also comes with a high-density support core, hidden underneath a memory foam comfort layer.
The hybrid, on the other hands, has a very similar construction to its all-foam counterpart, only the core layer is made from coils. The hybrid ProAdapt is only available in a medium firmness option.
The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt is made from a combination of memory foam, polyfoam, plus the SmartClimate cover, looking to create a cooler sleeping environment for its used. It’s only available in a soft and firm version, so there is no medium option for those looking for something right at the middle.
TEMPUR-breeze is the company’s latest mattress model, available in three different configurations:
- The TEMPUR-Probreeze is available in an all-foam version, with a medium firmness. Much like the other foam mattresses made by Tempur-Pedic, this one also has a support core made with high-density polyfoam, and a comfort layer made from memory foam.
- TEMPUR-Probreeze also has a hybrid version, which is identical to the foam one, only the core is made with a coil system, instead of foam.
- The TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze has an all-foam version which is available in both a soft and a firm version. All three mattresses in this line are made with SmartClimate covers which integrate phase-change material, for temperature adaptability.
While the company’s headquarters are currently in Lexington, Kentucky, the mattresses are manufactured in plants located in Albuquerque, Virginia, and Duffield.
Warranty & Return Policy
Tempur-Pedic offers a 10-year warranty for its products, which is non-prorated. This means that your mattress is covered for either replacement or repairs without you having to pay any fees in case of such an occurrence, but will still be responsible for any transportation expenses.
Important: The warranty will be voided in case the mattress is not used with the proper foundation, as indicated by Tempur-Pedic.
Since the company offers 90 nights of free sleep trial, you have this entire period to test the mattress and decide if it’s a keeper. For returns, you have to wait at least 30 days, as it requires a break-in period to be eligible for returns. Returns are free for most customers, but those who paid a shipping fee/White Glove delivery service will not be reimbursed for it.
The price of the Tempur-Pedic mattress can vary quite a lot depending on the size and the model chosen. Unlike other mattress manufacturers, Tempur-Pedic also provides Split King and Split Cal King sizes for its mattresses, while some models are not available in a Twin or Double size.
That being said, the lowest price you can expect to pay for a Tempur-Pedic mattress is $1,699, for the Twin and Twin XL versions of the TEMPUR-Adapt, while the highest price is for the TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze’s Split King and Cal King options, priced at $7,998 each.
Those of you interested in purchasing a Tempur-Pedic mattress can do so both online and offline. The mattress is available on the company’s official website, as well as on Amazon (which may include some of the older models which are no longer available on Tempur-Pedic’s website) or third party retail websites.
Their mattresses are also available in a number of offline stores all across the US, but also in the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia. The company has an entire directory with shop information on their website.
Tempur-Pedic is a premium mattress, which also offers premium delivery services. Throughout the entire continental US, customers will benefit from free White Glove delivery, which is a service that covers the removal of your old mattress, as well as in-home assembly.
People who live in Alaska, Hawaii, or other US territories will be charged $600 for the shipping fee and White Glove delivery service. This fee is flat and won’t change regardless of which of these locations you’re ordering from.
Tempur-Pedic will always be remembered as one of the pioneers of the luxury mattress industry. Because of their backstory, some of their people will also associate the brand with NASA. But what Tempur-Pedic really does is to deliver a mattress that combines comfortable materials and cooling technologies for people who want to experience what it feels like to sleep on a high-end mattress.
