Airbeds Archives

If you’re looking for a good mattress or bed for guests or for temporary use the best alternative is an inflatable bed.  An Aerobed is the perfect solution for occasional sleeping needs.  Airbeds are better than cots because they are much more comfortable and much easier to use.  An airbed is also much better than sleeping on a sleeper sofa because it is much more comfortable.

In fact inflatable Aerobeds are the premier choice of many people who are looking for a good temporary sleeping alternative.  There are many benefits to choosing an Aerobed for your sleeping needs.

First, the Aerobed is an affordable alternative to traditional mattress sets. In fact Aerobeds are comparable in comfort and support to mattress sets that are very expensive.

Aerobeds are inflatable beds that can be easily transported and set up in an instant.  If you have a temporary living arrangement or flat you can easily use and move an Aerobed.  Aerobeds are inflated in a matter of seconds using the included air pump.  The air pump is a patented product that fits perfectly and inflates the bed in just a few minutes.  The pump then detaches.  Different models offer different air pump styles, each one providing the power necessary to quickly inflate your bed.

Portable & Lightweight Airbeds

When you need a portable bed an Aerobed is the perfect choice.  The air mattress is easy to inflate and deflate.  Once deflated the Aerobed easily rolls up and can be placed into its storage bag.  Then the bed can be easily stored or taken with.  An Aerobed that is in its storage bag doesn’t take up much space and can easily fit into a closet or can be carried in the trunk of your car.  The Aerobed is lightweight and easy to carry with you wherever you go.

When choosing a good temporary bed consider the way you will be primarily using it.  An Aerobed provides a dependable bed that comes with a warranty of typically 1 to 3 years.  No matter why you need your temporary bed you’ll be glad to know that its durable and is made of high quality materials so it will work well for a long time no matter how often you use it.

Airbeds Are a Great Solution for a Temporary Sleeping Arrangement

Some people need a temporary bed when they move to a new home or when they go to a new flat.  The Aerobed is the perfect choice for a temporary bed because it can be used on a daily basis.  It is durable yet provides you with a very comfortable night’s sleep.  Sleeping on an Aerobed is better and more comfortable than sleeping on a futon or sleeper sofa.

Even a temporary bed can cause back pain or problems if the bed does not provide good support.  Many types of temporary beds just don’t give your spine the support it needs.  The Aerobed gives your back the support it needs to stay pain-free and healthy.  In fact many people who have had back pain in the past find that they can alleviate the pain simply by sleeping on an Aerobed mattress.

Inflatable airbeds can be great for everyday use although these beds are not intended to be used everyday and are definintely not to be used in place of your normal, everyday bed.

The key to finding good quality and lasting airbeds that will be easy to inflate, deflate and store away as well as giving you a relaxing night’s sleep, is to go for a quality brand such as Aerobed or Intex.

Choose an airbed that is well made and that is known to perform well over the long-term.  Not all airbeds are created equal.  Some are made of inferior materials that won’t hold up for the long-term.  Choose a brand name airbed that you can trust such as Aerobed.

Airbeds Can Be More Comfortable Than Your Own Bed

Many people find that airbeds are actually more comfortable than their old mattress.  For this reason some people who sleep on a quality airbed for one night, such as those from Aerobed, will find that they slept extremely well.

The Aerobed provides an extremely comfortable night’s sleep.   While many people may think that sleeping on an air mattress doesn’t sound comfortable when you sleep on an Aerobed mattress it is actually one of the most comfortable beds you can get.

The Aerobed comes in several different styles.  One of the more popular ones in its collection is the Raised Double Aerobed.  The Raised Aerobed is a higher style air mattress that has a height similar to that of a traditional mattress set.  This makes sleeping on it easy and restful. On the other hand, if you prefer an inflatable mattress that is closer to the ground, you might like the Aerobed classic double airbed which has a mattress that is low to the ground making it better for occasional use only.

There is no good reason why you can’t use inflatable beds on a daily basis although it isn’t really recommended that you do so. Although these good quality airbeds do provide good support for your back when used for a few nights, the manufacturer does not mention anywhere that these airbeds are for use on a daily basis.

While the Aerobed properly aligns your spine when you sleep on it, giving it the exact support that it needs.  This alignment will help reduce any stress that your back may have been incurring and actually can help reduce or alleviate altogether chronic or intermittent back pain you may have been experiencing.  Your old traditional mattress is often too soft or worn out to provide the level of support that your back needs. However, it is believed that over time and for extended use, your back may not get the proper support, if you were to use the airbeds on a daily basis.

In fact in many instances the Aerobed is much more comfortable than your standard traditional mattress.  One of the reasons for this extreme comfort is the ability to create the exact level of firmness that you desire.  Everyone prefers a certain level or softness or hardness to their mattress for peak comfort.

Short term use could range from 1 day to about 5 days. You can keep airbeds inflated and use them just as you would your regular mattress set.  They are easier to use and keep clean than traditional mattresses and are recommended for people with allergies.  Allergens can accumulate in traditional mattresses causing allergies to increase.  Traditional mattresses can’t be easily cleaned so it’s hard to get rid of dust mites and other allergens once they accumulate in your mattress.  An Aerobed, on the other hand, is free from allergens.  It does not accumulate dust and other potential allergens.  The surface can be easily cleaned with simply a damp cloth.

Aerobeds are also great for small apartments or flats especially when you have extra people staying over and do not have a spare bedroom for guests.  Use one in your studio apartment to create a place to sleep in an instant.  Aerobeds inflate in a matter of a few seconds.  They can also be deflated quickly for easy storage.  The Aerobed simply rolls up and is put into its own storage bag.  When you move the Aerobed can easily go with you.  Traditional mattresses require help moving them along with a large truck for transport. The Aerobed can just be deflated and carried easily in its own storage bag.

Today’s air beds from Aerobed are feature rich and comfortable.  You’ll find that Aerobeds come complete with multiple features that are designed to provide you or your guests with a great night’s sleep.  There are three main categories of Aerobeds to choose from.  These include air mattress style, raised style and outdoor style.

The Basic Aerobed Mattress

The basic Aerobed air mattress is far superior to the blow-up air mattresses you may remember from your youth.  Even the most basic of Aerobed styles come with many advanced features that will help to give you a comfortable rest.

Aerobed air pumps are advanced air pumps that allow you to inflate your air bed within seconds or minutes.  You’ll never need to use your own air to inflate the Aerobed!

The Raised Aerobed

The raised Aerobed is a taller style air mattress that looks and feels most similar to your own mattress on your bed.  The raised mattress has two connected pieces that help to provide added sleeping comfort.  With any style airbed you place the airbed directly on the floor for use.  This eliminates the need to have spare beds in your rooms.  Imagine being able to use your spare room for whatever you like – a home office or sewing room – and then convert it easily to a guest bedroom using an Aerobed.

Aerobeds come in several designs.  There are classic, premier and platinum versions of many of the styles of air beds.  All styles come with an air pump for easy and quick inflation. The main differences between the versions are the amount of features that are added to the unit.  Classic Aerobeds are typically a simple design that is most often used for occasional use.  The airbed inflates quickly by using the air pump, which is most often plugged into an electrical outlet. These also come with a poly-cotton mattress cover and a one-year warranty.

Premier version air beds come with air pumps that allow you to customize the air in the bed to provide you with adjustable firmness.  This is great for guests who prefer to choose their own firmness level to match what they are used to.  The air pumps are rechargeable allowing you to inflate the bed no matter where you are. The premier versions also come with a longer warranty period of 3 years.

Premium air bed styles use air pumps that are further enhanced to include remote operation including remote deflation capability.  The mattress cover on premium styles is made of 100% cotton to provide more comfort.  Additionally the premier styles come with a 5-year warranty.

Air Bed Pumps

In general the air pumps used with Aerobeds are superior quality and very reliable.  The airbeds are made using recessed air fill valves to ensure that they do not interfere with comfort.  If you aren’t familiar with the Aerobed air pump you’ll certainly be impressed the first time you use it.  You’ll find that the pump quickly and easily inflates the air mattress in a matter of seconds.

Airbeds come in standard sizes so that regular sheet sets can be used with them.  It’s great to keep a few air beds on hand so you can easily accommodate your overnight guests.  All Aerobeds help to ensure a good sleeping posture.  Your guests may tell you that the bed was even more comfortable than the one they usually sleep on!  Aerobeds roll up for easy storage in their own bags that you can conveniently store in the closet when not in use.

Keeping Spare Air Beds

Many people enjoy having guests but few have the space to devote to keeping a spare bedroom for only the occasional visitor.  Instead why not use the room as you like and get an airbed?  An air bed is the perfect solution to having overnight company.

There is no need to give up the space in your room to a fulltime bed when you can easily use an airbed whenever necessary.  They are so simple to use that anyone can do it.  The Aerobed comes with its own air pump that inflates the airbed in a matter of seconds.  The air pump is easy to use – simply attach it to the special permanent valve in the air mattress and turn it on.

Aerobeds provide the perfect extra bed for guests of all types.  The kids will enjoy having their friends sleep over when you keep a spare Aerobed or two in their closets.  Twin size air beds don’t take up much room when inflated and can easily be moved around.  You can inflate them just before bedtime and then they can be quickly deflated in the morning to get them out of the way. Aerobeds are made of durable materials so that they will stand up to repeated use.  They will fit regular size bed linens so there is no need to purchase any extra sheets.

Raised Air Beds Even Better Than Normal Beds

Adults enjoy the comfort of raised air beds.  Raised Aerobeds are the perfect choice for long term sleeping arrangements.  Raised air beds sit higher off the ground than standard air mattresses providing a very similar feel to that of a standard mattress and box spring set.  The Aerobed is designed to provide a stable and healthy sleep posture that is every bit as comfortable (or even more so) than sleeping in your regular bed.  Raised airbeds are great for older adults who may have trouble getting in and out of a lower inflatable mattress type of airbed.  Kids airbeds, especially the range of Ready Beds for Kids, are fantastic, no-hassle and versatile options for sleepovers or when visiting others and you want a comfortable temporary portable bed for your children.

You’ll be able to reclaim your spare room and use it for your office, den, reading room, craft room or whatever you desire.  The inflatable beds can easily fit in a small space so you’ll likely not need to move around any furniture to make space for them.  In fact you can fit several airbeds into small spaces allowing you to accommodate more overnight guests. The Aerobeds are easy to inflate and just as easy to deflate and put away.  The air release valve opens so you can quickly deflate the bed and then simply roll it up and put it in the storage cover to store.

Easy, No Hassle Storage With Air Beds

The Aerobeds take up very little room in the closet making them the perfect bed to have on hand in case visitors arrive.  Aerobeds are easy to care for and will provide you with years of reliable service.  Air beds not only save on space but they also save money.  They are much less expensive than purchasing regular mattress sets and they don’t require a frame.

If you’re looking for a new airbed here are some tips.  There are many things to consider when you are purchasing an air bed.  Here you’ll learn about the types of airbeds that are available so you can make an informed choice.  All Aerobeds are made of high quality materials and built to last.

There are three main types of Aerobeds available.  You should choose the type that best suits your needs.  This will provide you with the features that you need for your new air bed.

The three categories include:

  • Mattresses
  • Raised airbeds
  • Outdoor airbeds

When you think of airbeds you may be remembering the old thin blow-up versions that you had to literally blow up.  Well, the new Aerobeds are the 21st century edition of those.  What is the most notable improvement?  The new Aerobeds use small electric or rechargeable air pumps.

The Mattress Style Aerobed

The mattress style Aerobed is a one-piece design that is considered a basic air mattress.  It sits low to the ground and is a traditional mattress.  It is quick and easy to inflate and deflate and can easily be rolled up and put away.  The mattress style Aerobed is the perfect choice for occasional use.  Simply keep a couple of them in the closet and when guests arrive you’ll be ready.  These are also the most lightweight air beds making them great for people on the go.

Some of the features you’ll enjoy with a mattress style airbed include a simple style bed that is lightweight and easy to handle. You’ll find that the airbed is easy to inflate using the provided air pump.  There are many styles of Aerobed air pumps but they all have the ability to quickly and easily inflate your Aerobed within just a few minutes or less. You can choose between classic, premier and platinum styles that each provide you with the types of features and comfort you’ll enjoy.

Raised Airbeds

Raised airbeds have the look of a regular mattress set.  Raised airbeds are best for long-term use.  The airbed is raised higher off the ground making it easier to get in and out of.  The raised airbed provides a comfortable night’s sleep.  In fact many people have enjoyed the comfort so much that they ended up using the raised mattress all the time.  The raised air mattresses are indeed most comfortable yet are still easy to inflate and deflate.  There are two connected parts to the raised airbed, which provide the extreme comfort you’re looking for.

As with the mattress style airbeds raised airbeds also come in several styles and designs including classic, premier and platinum.  In general if you’re looking for a bed that will be used infrequently you may want to choose the classic version.  The premier and platinum raised airbeds come with additional comfort and convenience features that are perfect for more frequent use.  These features will offer your guests a pampered night’s sleep.

Outdoor Aerobeds

Outdoor Aerobeds are made for use outside such as for camping.  This air mattress gives you the comfort of your own bed while still enjoying the rugged outdoors.  The outdoor Aerobed comes in several styles that each provide you with a comfortable overnight experience even when camping in the most rugged terrains.  Your outdoor Aerobed may come with a detachable and rechargeable air pump to help you quickly and easily fill your air bed with ease and will connect to a 12volt system found in cars and campers.  Some air pumps also use batteries.  If backpacking is more your style you can still get the comfort of an outdoor airbed by choosing a lightweight version.

No matter what your needs are there is an Aerobed to fit both your requirements and your budget.

Airbeds are a great convenience and provide the perfect extra bed for guests and family members.  It is important to properly maintain your air bed so that it will continue to work perfectly for you for years to come.  There is nothing worse than setting up your airbed at the end of a long day and discovering that it isn’t working properly.  You can help your air bed give you years of solid service by following just a few important tips.

It is important to remember to treat your inflatable mattress with care.  This starts by adding the proper amount of air to the bed when you inflate it. An improperly inflated airbed puts undue stress on the seams over extended use.  The inflation pump that comes with your Aerobed is easy to use and will inflate your bed quickly and properly.

Be Gentle With Your Air Beds

Air beds are made using very strong and extremely durable materials however, they can get leaks if not properly cared for.  Avoid using sharp objects near the inflatable mattress.  Likewise keep pets off the airbed to avoid their sharp nails from poking the mattress.  Don’t let children use the air bed as a trampoline.  And also remember that jumping on airbeds can also be dangerous for small children in case they bounce off and hit their head against the floor.

Kids air beds are not as durable as airbeds for adults, so extra care must be taken to ensure that children do not jump onto them or jab them with sharp objects which might result in a tear in the material.

When using your blow up bed always use bed sheets on them.  The sheets help to protect the mattress from getting dirty.  Choose sheets that fit the bed properly.  Most inflatable air beds come in standard mattress sizes so you can use regular sheets on them.  A mattress pad or protector is also helpful to use on your airbed for added protection.  If you use your air mattress outdoors always place a protective pad underneath it to prevent sticks or rocks from poking into it.

Always allow your airbed to air out before deflating it and putting it away.  If your airbed is made of PVC you can clean it using a damp cloth and mild detergent.  Clean off any spots that occur immediately. If your bed has a flocked or cotton surface you must spot clean it only.  Always read the cleaning instructions for your specific type of airbed.  When you purchase the bed always keep the instructions with the product or file them in a safe place so that you can refer to them later.  If you do clean the air bed make sure that you let it dry off completely before putting it away.

Air Beds Leaks Can Be Repaired

If your airbed does spring a leak don’t worry.  Most small leaks can be easily repaired.  Your air bed came with a repair kit for just such a situation.  Follow the directions for putting on the patch and you’ll find that patches hold up very well and will extend the life of your airbed.

Sometimes putting your airbed away can be tricky.  In order to fit the airbed back into the protective sleeve you must be sure to deflate the airbed completely before you try to roll it up.  If you try to force the air out too quickly you can cause stress on the airbed.  Once all the air is out you can more easily fold the bed in half and then roll it as you would roll a sleeping bag.  It’s usually best to roll the airbed rather than folding it.  Folding the airbed can make the plastic stretched in areas, especially if it’s folded for an extended period of time.  Always put your rolled up airbed back into its cover to further protect it from damage.  If you don’t have a cover you can use a laundry or duffel bag for storage.

When storing your airbed keep it away from direct sunlight and excess heat and cold.  Heat can be especially damaging to the plastic causing it to soften and become misshapen.  The best and easiest place to store your airbed is in the closet.  When you follow these easy guidelines your airbed will last you for years and years to come.

Today’s air beds provide the perfect mix of comfort and convenience making them a clear choice for an extra bed in your home. No longer do you need to devote a whole room to guests when you may not have visitors very often. Instead, reclaim your spare rooms and choose Aerobeds instead. Here are the top reasons to choose Aerobed airbeds for your home.

  • Easy to Use – Aerobeds are easy to use. They come with easy to follow directions that anyone can follow. Simply open up the bed, attach the air pump and turn it on. In less than a few minutes you’ll have a fully inflated airbed that is ready to use. They aren’t heavy so any adult can manage them easily.
  • Comfortable – Aerobeds are the most comfortable type of air mattress you’ll ever sleep on. In fact many people find that they prefer sleeping on their Aerobed instead of their regular bed. Raised Aerobeds come with controls that allow you to adjust the amount of air in the bed. This allows you to inflate the bed to the exact comfort level of choice. Aerobeds are made to provide a healthy sleeping posture.
  • Space Saving – Air beds are so great because they save space in your home. You don’t need to keep a guest room when you have an Aerobed. Double or Single Aerobeds store easily by rolling them and placing them into their protective storage bag making them small and compact. You can easily store them in any size closet. You can keep several of them on hand to set up for unexpected guests.
  • Durable – Aerobeds are made of durable materials that will hold up to years of use. The air beds are very sturdy which you will notice immediately when you unpack them from the box. The heavyweight material is perfect for inflatable beds while still being lightweight enough to be easy to carry and store.
  • Easy Care – Aerobeds are very easy to maintain. They can simply be deflated and rolled back up to be stored until the next use. They are virtually unaffected by spills or stains which can easily be spot cleaned. Aerobeds are nearly indestructible but if they do spring any leaks they can be easily patched using an included patch kit.
  • Clean and Allergen Free – Regular beds can collect dust and dust mites that can actually be problematic for people with allergies. The Aerobed is made of materials that don’t hold onto dust so it is always allergen free and provides a clean sleeping environment. Aerobeds come in standard sizes so that you can use your regular sheets with them.
  • Affordability – Inflatable beds are the most affordable way to provide extra sleeping space. They are much less expensive than purchasing a mattress and box spring set along with a frame.

Handy Air Beds Help With Extra Guests

Air beds are so handy to have in the house for a spare bed in   case of visitors at the last minute. With Christmas  approaching and the likelihood of friends and family  stopping over for a night or two, it makes sense to have an  inflatable bed handy.  Your visitors get a good night’s  sleep on a comfortable mattress and you get to keep your own bed to yourself  instead of offering it to your visitors!  Mind you, the quality of air beds available these days is excellent and you can get a great night’s sleep on one.

We found to have a great selection of Air Beds from all the major air beds manufacturers and they also offer FREE Super Saver Delivery on a few items.

Click here to check out for a great selection of airbeds to suit different price points.

Air beds take up very little room when boxed up so even  though you might only use this a few times (unless you go  camping), you’ll have peace of mind knowing that the storage  space required by an airbed is very small and you can put it  away in a cupboard whilst it is not in use.

Overall, you need to find a bed that is comfortable, easy to  pump up (takes about 15-30 mins), is easy and quick to let  down and will give a good night’s sleep. Luckily, there are  many different types of airbeds around and it is a matter of  personal preference as to which one you go for: single,  double, raised (which means that instead of having a  mattress that is fairly low to the ground, this is quite a way off the ground,  almost, but not quite the same distance off the  ground as a normal bed). Gelert and Aerobeds are two of the  better known brands but you can get Coleman and Campinggaz brands as well.

Three of the more popular models of air beds are the AeroBed Premier  Raised Double Air Bed, the Aerobed Classic Double Raised Air Bed and the Aerobed Classic Raised King Air Bed all of which are raised off the floor to the same height as you would get in a normal bed.

They self inflate with a pump in about 3 minutes making them super quick and easy to put up – even if your guests turn up very late at night.

Using an electric airbed pump means you can pump the airbed up relatively quickly from about 15 to 30 minutes, depending on which type of airbed you have. The raised airbeds will take longer to pump up because they require more air as they are larger.

Going out camping is a big deal. Getting organized and just trying to remember what gear to bring is one of the most difficult things about getting ready for camping. There are camping supplies here and there and you are not sure if you have indeed packed everything, as in everything you need.

You seem to always forget something. It may be helpful to keep a checklist of your needed camping supplies inside your pocket. Having a checklist in preparation for your trip would have to be the most important thing to do before going camping. This keeps everything organized and helps you make sure that nothing important is left behind. You can involve everyone in the making a checklist. Listing camping supplies could be fun and anticipative of the excitement you will get on your trip.

There may be a difficulty in making your list of necessary camping supplies. There are different kinds of camping. Survivalist camping is a challenge not to bring almost anything than the clothes you are on, and recreational camping is in contracts with the idea of getting the most comfort and luxury as having electricity while camping.

Other types of camping can also incorporate lots of other extra activities that need added camping supplies – swimming, rafting, grilling, or fishing. Since there are different types of camping, your needs of what to bring could also vary a great deal depending on your camping plans. To keep things easy, it may be beneficial to keep two lists of camping supplies, one for the basics and another one for the extras. The basics list would be invariable, while the extras list would be the flexible list.

Here, we are going to tackle about the basics list. Make sure you have at least the items mentioned below before packing the truck full of beer.

1. Tent. Even if you have a cabin to stay on, you probably still want to experience sleeping outdoors. Hence, a tent is a necessity. Determine your budget and needs first before picking one as there are an array of tents with various features and styles in the market. Just make sure that the tent is waterproof, lightweight, and easy to assemble. And make sure that your tent sleeps the number of people in your camp. You should also list down all the things you will be needing in setting up your tent, like stakes and hammer.

2. Sleeping bags. Don’t let yourself be folded in a ton of blankets inside your tent. And remember that some campers don’t get to bring tents with them, for instance those confined not to having enough camping space. Hence, a good sleeping bag is always a necessity for comfort.

3. Rainwear. Always anticipate the weather will be rainy. Having a good rainwear saves you from future discomfort.

4. Tarps. Tarps are good especially if you are eating outdoors and it is raining. Bring some rope too to tie them up.

5. Cooking utensils and portable grill or stove and fuel for a homier camping.

6. Bottled drinking water and high-carbohydrate food for nourishment.

7. Insect repellent, sunscreen, basic medicine, and first aid kit for safety.

8. Batteries, flashlight, waterproof matches, whistle, pocketknife.

9. Cleaning items like plastic bags, dishwashing soap, sponge, paper towels.

10. Personal necessities like soap, toothbrush, and towel.

Efficient, comfortable, safe. Have a ready bin of all these items even if you are not immediately camping. When the time comes it will be handy. You are sure of that.
