Chilipad Ooler Review - A Comprehensive Look at the Controlled Cooling Mattress Pad
Are you looking for a way to get a perfect night's sleep? If so, you may have heard of the Chilipad Ooler, a mattress pad that promises to keep you cool and comfortable all night long. But is it worth the investment? In this in-depth Chilipad Ooler review, we'll take a look at what makes this mattress pad unique, how it works, and whether or not it's worth the money.
The Chilipad Ooler is a mattress pad that uses water to regulate your body temperature while you sleep. It works by circulating water through tiny tubes in the mattress pad, which can be adjusted to your desired temperature. The control unit (which manages the temperature of the water and then sends it through televisions into the mattress pad) is far from silent. However, if you are somebody who sleeps well with white noise, you'll find that the OOLER creates a welcome kind of white noise.
You'll need to find somewhere to keep the control system(s) near your bed. The control system is 15x10x6 inches, so it's not exactly small. The instructions state to place the systems in an unblocked place with 18 inches of clearance, however this just wasn't possible due to the measurements and design of my bedroom.
If you purchase a traditional chiliPAD, you'll use a remote control to turn on and off the system and select your preferred temperature. If you buy an OOLER, you'll use the OOLER app, which is available for both iOS and Android devices. The OOLER app isn't the best app I have ever used. However, if you wake up early and turn off the OOLER before the warming period starts it will actually turn the OOLER back on to begin the warming period, which I believe is quite cumbersome, especially since I'm probably not there to turn the system off again.
This can have a significant impact on the restorative effect of sleep. Aside from the data, I feel more comfortable while I'm sleeping. You know that feeling when you roll onto a different side of the bed and the sheets are still cold there? Imagine feeling like that all the time.
I'll be completely honest - I shelled out $1399 for the OOLER system for both halves of my queen sized bed (because I love my partner and decided to cool his half too). Prices start at $699 for a half queen OOLER or $499 for a half queen original chiliPAD.
I don't mean this lightly when I say that the OOLER system has my full endorsement. Sleep quality is incredibly important to our health. I want to live a long and happy life and I am completely comfortable recommending that, if you have the means to do so, you purchase this product to improve your wellbeing.
