Too Hot to Sleep? | ChiliPad Technology

Chilipad Technology is the answer to your hot sleepless nights.

Sleep studies have shown that the best temperature to set your thermostat at is between 60-67 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal sleep. My husband and I have always set the thermostat to 65 and if it is one degree higher than that, our bodies immediately feel it and we cannot go to sleep. Hot Sleeper much?. I especially am VERY sensitive to heat. I really do get too hot to sleep.

I have to rave about a product that changed the sleeping game for the hot sleepers! It’s called ChiliPad Sleep System – it is a temperature-controlled mattress system that controls the temperature of your bed for better sleep. It is similar to an electric cooling blanket however instead of covering yourself with it, this product goes under your sheets. As you can see it is very inconspicuous, the only noticeable items are the control units and I think that if your bed frame is higher than mine you will be able to hide it under the bed.

Prior to purchasing our ChiliPad, we used to toss and turn countless times throughout the night resulting in poor sleep and bad attitude. We have now been using this item for the last 6 months and I can tell you it has completely changed our sleep for us! Needless to say, this product gets a 10/10 in my book! 

What does the Chilipad system include?

We keep our cooling units under our bedside bench.

Remote Controls for Your Cooling Pad

Two remote controls so that you and your sleeping partner can each pick a temperature to sleep at. I typically set mine to 57 while my husband sleeps at 65. I love that we don’t have to compromise on a temperature and we can each pick what works best for our body.

1 remote per control unit so you each get to pick what temperature you want to sleep at.

Control Unit (Water Reservoir) for Better Sleep

The control units hold the water that goes through your mattress pad. All you need to have is some distilled water, you fill up each control unit and it will notify you when you need to refill it. Simple as that!

I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet the system is. It’s not very loud at all, it actually helps provide slight white noise which also helps us go into a deeper sleep.

Mattress Pad for Cool Touch Mattress

The mattress pad also is not very thick and it doesn’t feel uncomfortable under your sheets. As you can see in the picture below of my actual bedroom, nothing super out of the ordinary. Most people wouldn’t even know it was there.

You would never know it was there!

I can tell a big difference in how long it takes me to fall asleep and stay asleep when I don’t sleep on my bed. I roll around trying to get to the “cooler” parts of the bed and just don’t get the rest that I need.

Not only does this pad work for cooling your bed, it also can warm your bed! We haven’t had the chance to try it out during winter time but it does go up to 110 degrees fahrenheit. I personally don’t anticipate using it during wintertime, I am just so hot tempered that I like the cold cold sheets/bed. I know, I’m weird. Lol

Available in different sizes: Queen, King and California King. You can also pick 1 control unit vs two for a different price. Check out their options here:

I’ve never tried a cooling blanket for our bed but I can tell you I will never use anything else! I wish I had known of this product sooner. I would have been able to get so much more rest to be able to tackle my busy days as an entrepreneur.

They have other products such as a ChiliBlanket which looks like a cooling electric blanket but I haven’t tried that yet. I will keep you posted if I do!


This bed cooling system has literally changed my life. It is in my opinion, 100% worth the investment. You can’t put a price on great sleep. Plus I love how you can barely tell its there, it doesn’t look like a huge device on your bed. Most importantly, great sleep allows you to be productive and get more things done. We live in a society where we are always running around busy so we need all the help we can get.

If you try this cooling system please let me know how your first night’s sleep went! I would love to know if you love it as much as I do!
