Mattress Firm to offer beds with heating, cooling units - Technology has been used in luxury automobile seats

Houston, TX • September 3, 2010

Specialty bedding retailer Mattress Firm is set to launch a line of mattresses that employs a heating and cooling unit like those found in many luxury automobile seats.

The line, which will be exclusive to Mattress Firm, has a proprietary technology that uses ambient air to heat and cool the mattress surface. Each side of the bed can be controlled independently.

"This is truly a revolutionary product never before seen in the bedding industry," said CEO Steve Stagner. "The ability to use ambient air to effectively heat and cool the surface of a mattress is the solution many sleepers have been dreaming of. Finally, there is a holistic solution for many sleep needs."
