This guide was made to give you a basic understanding of the components and uses of an airbed.
Airbeds are excellent buys for those whose main concern is the firmness of their mattress. Adjustable airbeds allow you to change the firmness of the mattress by releasing or inflating air chambers present within the mattress according to your preference. Airbeds are extremely popular with couples who prefer different firmness preferences, because you can adjust either side of the bed independently with dual chamber models. Today’s modern airbeds look just like a regular mattress and you wouldn’t be able to tell it’s an airbed just by looking at it.
“Airbed” is the vernacular term for the types of air sleep systems present in a bedroom and undergo daily use. Airbeds are not to be confused with air mattresses, which generally refer to the “blow up” travel or guest air sleep systems that many people own.
Make sure a strong warranty comes with the airbed you purchase. You may want to check if the parts of the mattress come with a warranty because oftentimes one or two little things on an airbed go awry in a couple years.
Where to Buy
You can find airbeds online or in some niche luxury mattress stores. The company that put airbeds on the map seem to SleepNumber (we always see commercials on TV and receive mailers). However, after digging a little deeper we recommend Selectairbeds.com because of the no-frills descriptions of their beds. We’ve heard from many people SleepNumber parts go bad and there’s no way you can find new ones. We always like companies that aid the customer should a problem arise and Selectairbeds.com seem to be the most transparent with their replacement and customer satisfaction policies.
