Hi organizer,

The quality/density of the foam core will make a difference in durability with only 1" of latex on top of it and 1.5 lb polyfoam is not the best quality but regardless of how long it ends up lasting at least you will be sleeping better for as long as it does and you've extended the useful life of the mattress at a much lower cost than replacing it ... and made the best out of a difficult situation.

Thanks for the final update ... and it's good to hear that things are working out well for you :).

I had this problem too but i realized I was sleeping on very hot sheets and changed them to summer cotton sheets and they were cooler indeed. Have you tried that? I have heard latex works too. Hope you figure something out soon!!

Hi Stephnell,

I have heard latex works too.


Celsion (AKA Talalay GL fast response) is Talalay latex that has phase change gel added to it.

Hope you figure something out soon!!


Based on organizer's last post ... It sounds like their problem is solved :)

Hi mcp85718.

Thanks for asking... I just updated the link to Chilipad in the previous posting. They are offered on the manufacturer website Chilipad Cube here ) and Amazon as some more "active" methods of temperature regulation.

Keep cool! :)

Chilipad does not do anything about condensation buildup.
You should consider modifying your existing mattress. It will cost about $20 total.

When it gets really hot in Summer and AC is straining, I use Chinese topper made of twigs.
Google: "rattan mattress topper"
It goes right on top of the memory foam topper. Instead of a bed sheet.

The rattan topper takes some time to get used to. But it's quite enjoyable. It's uncomfortable, just different. I am guessing rattan is better than bamboo tiles type. It has great temperature conductivity properties and it's fairly flexible.
