Beyond the blow-up Intex air mattress we pull out for guests to sleep on, luxury airbed mattresses are a popular and modern alternative to classic innerspring and memory foam mattresses. That's because they offer customizable support, hypoallergenic covers and superior breathability.
Airbed mattresses, sometimes called an aerobed, have separate air chambers to support your head, back and feet. These separate chambers let you individually adjust each to ensure you've got the best possible support each part of your body needs. Pumps with digital readers tell you how much air you're adding to each chamber so you can easily adjust the amount as desired.
Many airbed mattresses also feature cooling gel and memory foam layers that enhance their comfort levels even more.
Are Luxury airbeds the same as inflatable mattresses for camping or guest rooms?
Luxury airbed mattresses are a far cry from the single high Dura-Beam inflatable beds you might be familiar with for outdoor use or sleepovers in a relative's guest room. Airbed mattresses are customizable and sturdy. They come with remote controlled built-in electric pumps to customize the level of pressure and traditional daily use bed sizes like twin size, queen size, and king size.
How much do airbed mattresses cost?
High-quality airbed mattresses cost similar to other luxury mattresses, from a few hundred to several thousand dollars. The price depends on the size, quality and number of additional features offered, such as the ability to raise or lower various parts of the mattress, the way hospital beds can be adjusted.
Temporary inflatable airbed mattresses usually cost between $40 and $150.
Should I be worried about my airbed mattress leaking?
With Luxury airbeds there is some adjustment to air flow depending on weight and environmental factors. But these luxury airbed mattresses do not gradually deflate the way low-cost temporary air mattresses do.
If your temporary air mattress is leaking, repair patches are available for most models.
Do airbed mattresses have springs or foam?
Airbed mattresses generally use either foam, latex or some combination of both in order to keep your mattress's comfort rating highly customizable.

FAQ: Airbed Mattresses
Are luxury airbeds the same sizes as temporary air mattresses?
No. Temporary air mattresses that use an air pump and carry bag for outdoor uses like camping are sized as single high airbed or double high airbeds, because they are just trying to provide a sleeping surface off the ground. Luxury air beds are a permanent replacement for your bedroom mattress. They come in traditionally bed sizes like twin size/full size, queen size, king size, and will fit bed sheets sized accordingly.
