In recent years, air bed design has begun to transcend to accommodate the ever-growing demands of consumers. One significant change in air bed design has been the adoption of a double high design. Since the average person is accustomed to sleeping several feet off the floor, air bed manufacturers have started making air beds that mimic the height of a traditional mattress. Raised, or double high air beds, offer several advantages over shorter air beds. To begin with, their increased distance from the floor allows for a warmer sleeping experience. Since shorter air beds are closer to floor (which tends to be rather cold during the night), they can cause sleep interruptions and thus a poor sleeping experience.
Raised air beds eliminate these minor yet irritating problems. The increased height which raised air beds have to offer also works to ease the burden on those getting in and out of bed. Older citizens and those with back problems have always had issues getting in and out of air beds. This has come as a result of the beds' small distance from the floor. Raised air beds remedy this issue and allow for easier maneuverability in and out the bed.
Finally, raised air beds can save you time and anger by dampening the effects of air loss. Raised air beds store almost twice the volume of air that traditional air mattresses carry. This extra air works wonders in terms of reducing the effects of air loss.
A twenty percent loss of air is much less noticeable in a raised air bed than it is in a typical air mattress. Thus, when such air loss occurs in raised air bed, owners don't need to be as diligent in refilling it. On the other hand, those with a typical air mattress may have to awake in the middle of the night to re-inflate their bed. Now that you're in the know of all the benefits raised air beds have to offer, you can go ahead and purchase one! Although it may cost you more upfront, it will surely pay for itself in the future.
