If your air mattress is in a cold room, the air inside the mattress may make the sleeping surface feel colder than comfortable. On warm summer nights, your body heat may become trapped between you and the surface of the mattress. One solution is to add a foam mattress topper to help regulate the temperature.
Like the leakage problem, punctures are a risk with air mattresses. Be sure you place the air mattress on a smooth surface and away from anything that could cause punctures. In addition, be sure you find the heaviest PVC material, which is measured by gauges. A minimally acceptable gauge is 0.4mm. Some are reinforced or made of textiles to add durability.
This problem often happens in combination with leakage issues. Certain parts of the mattress will sag more than others. Try to find an air mattress with internal chambers that will help distribute body weight more evenly on the surface to resolve this issue.
Stability & Support Issues
Most higher quality air mattresses have added no-slip bottoms to their models to help keep them from sliding across the floor. Others have incorporated air beams to stabilize air beds as well.
Depending on where you place your airbed, the pillows may slide off easily in the night. To solve this issue, you can try to place the mattress against a wall. Purchasing an air bed with headboard-like chambers can help stabilize pillows as well. Some models have built-in pillows.
Chances are you’ll be storing your air mattress most of the time. The higher the quality of your mattress, the more likely it will take up additional storage space. Be sure to measure how large the unit is when it is not used.
