You Want Cooling, But Which One?
If you’re a person that sleeps hot, you may be dealing with long, restless nights. Our bodies sleep better when they’re cool, and sometimes setting the room temp isn’t enough. As we’ve talked about here, sleeping cool is essential to getting a good night’s rest and ensuring that the hours you spend in bed are high-quality. This is where a cooling mattress can be so helpful.
There are both memory foam and innerspring or hybrid mattresses that offer cooling.
When you’re looking at memory foam vs. innerspring, you’ll just need to remember this. Memory foam, also called viscoelastic foam, is high-density polyurethane foam that responds to heat and pressure. Its chief characteristic is the ability to “mold” to the body’s contours, which makes it the material of choice for many people with back and joint pain.
Innerspring mattresses have a series of steel springs inside them, hence the name. They provide the shape and support of the mattress. The coils are typically covered with layers of padding, foam, and sometimes additional smaller springs. Coils can be placed in an open space or individually “pocketed.” Innerspring does transfer more movement, however.
And when you’re looking for a cooling mattress, Tempur is a fantastic brand to consider. Tempur-Pedic is the leading brand in memory foam mattresses and a pioneer when it comes to foam comfort and durability. Memory foam mattresses can be appealing thanks to their conforming feel and very low motion transfer. When you’re sharing your bed, this can be quite appealing.
Tempur Cooling For The Win
Additionally, Tempur is a customer favorite. This brand is known in the industry for its quality and just recently was awarded by JD Power & Associates 2019 Award as #1 in Customer Satisfaction with retail mattresses. In fact, it was highest ranked in Support, Durability, Comfort, Warranty, Value for Price Paid, and Customer Service.
It was also inducted in 1998 to the Space Technology Hall of Fame for “improving life on Earth through innovations developed for space,” and “provides more pressure relief and better motion cancellation than any other brand.” That’s quality you can trust.
So, sleeping hot is no fun, and you’ve decided that you want to upgrade your mattress to a cooling one that also delivers the comfort and support of a traditional Tempur-Pedic because you want memory foam. Now you have to choose between the PRObreeze and the LUXEbreeze. How do you make the choice? What’s the difference? Can one really help you more?
Here, we’ll do a deep dive into the features of each mattress so that you can make an educated decision on which mattress will suit you, your lifestyle, and your budget the best.
Let’s get started.
Tempur-Pedic PRObreeze Mattress
First, let’s begin with the PRObreeze mattress. As the starter model in the breeze line-up, this mattress is available in a medium-feel and a medium hybrid. This wonderful mattress provides the quality Tempur foam comfort you know and love as well as cutting-edge cooling for all-night comfort.
For anyone unfamiliar, a hybrid mattress provides both a top, comfort level of memory foam and internal construction of springs. This can be preferable for some who desired the firmer support of an innerspring mattress. However, the mattress is still available in the classic memory foam. For a difference in feel, the hybrid provides more of that traditional bouncy feel while the all memory foam mattress provides a more enveloping feel. If you are new to memory foam mattresses the hybrid is a good "best of both worlds" choice.
With the original Tempur Memory Foam for support, a cool-to-the-touch cover that's washable, a pressure-relieving design for side, back, and stomach sleepers, this mattress showcases three levels of cooling to help you sleep up to 3 degrees cooler.
The TEMPUR-PRObreeze™ has a 3-level system of cutting-edge materials that work together from cover to core to keep you cool all night long. The zip-off cover will get you that cool feeling when you lay down and touch it. Then, over the next 20 minutes, the exclusive PureCool+™ Phase Change Material absorbs excess heat while you fall asleep. Lastly, for the next eight hours, the TEMPUR-CM+™ Comfort Layer provides maximum airflow and breathability throughout the night keeping you up to 3 degrees cooler all night long.
Here’s a closer look at those features:
SmartClimate® Dual Cover System
One of the ongoing concerns with any mattress, especially cooling mattresses, is the ability to clean the cover. Tempur thought of this and now offers next-generation technology in a zip-off, cool-to-touch outer layer with a super-stretch inner layer for convenience and comfort. The convenience of the removable, machine-washable cover is huge. No one wants to be sleeping on a dirty mattress, even with sheets, and accidents happen. This is where that removable cover really shines.
Plus, it’s made from ultra-high-molecular-weight yarn, which moves heat away from your body as you lay on it, and the sleek 360-degree zipper makes for easy you to take it off. Additionally, there’s a High-Stretch Performance Panel that was designed to be lightweight, breathable, and even more pressure-relieving.
The PRObreeze mattress uses PureCool+™ Phase Change Material inside the top layer of the mattress to create that cool sleeping experience. The material is exclusive, next-generation technology that absorbs excess heat, offering a three-degree reduction in sleeping temperature.
TEMPUR-CM+™ Comfort Layer
Now to provide comfort. This is where the TEMPUR-CM+™ layer comes in. This material was expertly created for maximum airflow and breathability, dissipating heat. It will also provide you with all-night cooling comfort.
Original TEMPUR™ Material Support Layer
This is the original memory foam material that Tempur is known for. This advanced adaptability gives you truly personalized comfort and support. And remember, Tempur material isn’t like typical memory foam. Each Tempur-Pedic mattress is made with NASA-developed material that is astoundingly pressure-relieving to absorb the g-force of astronauts during shuttle launches. The Tempur-Pedic scientists took it from there and made it perfect for sleeping.

Tempur-Pedic LUXEbreeze Mattress
When you’re really looking for the ultimate cooling experience and you need that extra bit of cooling, the LUXEbreeze is the mattress for you. Here, you’ll find next-level, all-night cooling, maximum pressure relief, and Tempur Memory Foam for ultimate support.
You’ll also see the cool-to-the-touch cover that's washable, the pressure-relieving design for side, back, and stomach sleepers, and now four levels of cooling to help you sleep up to 8 degrees cooler all night long! It’s also available in soft or firm.
The 4-level system that works together to keep you cool all night long is still paired with a zip-off cover imbued with PureCool+™ Phase Change Material that absorbs excess heat while you fall asleep. The LUXEbreeze also features TEMPUR-CM+™ which is now combined with Ventilated TEMPUR-APR® material for an even cooler nighttime experience.
The SmartClimate® Dual Cover System, PureCool+™, and TEMPUR-CM+™ Comfort Layer are still present in the LUXEbreeze and provide the same benefits. The change here is the ventilated core.
Ventilated TEMPUR-APR® Support Layer
This version of the original Tempur-APR® material provides the pressure relief you want with a tighter, more advanced cell structure for ultra-conforming comfort. The APR is Tempur's Advanced Pressure Relief. This means that the mattress has more give and provides improved pressure relief for improved blood flow. This is the most advanced material from Tempur and together with the ventilation, creates an incredibly cool sleep experience. The ventilation provides relief from a common complaint against memory foam as it doesn’t hold onto the heat.

The Tempur-Pedic PRObreeze mattresses are upper-end mattresses but the more affordable option over the LUXEbreeze. All-new for 2019, these two beds have the newest Tempur material and both share that CM+ and original APR material, however, the LUXEbreeze APR layer is ventilated for more cooling. The PRObreeze offers a choice with an all-foam or a foam and innerspring hybrid model both available in medium feel. While the LUXEbreeze is an all-foam mattress which is available in firm or soft.
Either model is designed to be comfortable for anyone- no matter what your sleeping style- back, side or even stomach sleeping.
The two mattresses also have the new PureCool Phase Change material. These new features are better at conforming and cooling than any earlier models. The main differences between the PRObreeze and the LUXEbreeze are the feel, the support foam ventilation, and the options for a hybrid.
If you have a tendency to sleep hot and have the extra money for a premium mattress then these options give you a choice that primarily comes down to if you like an all-foam or hybrid innerspring bounce and if you want a softer or firmer feel. If you sleep especially hot and you want that enhanced comfort, go with the LUXEbreeze.
