Does your sleeping partner prefer the bed hotter or cooler than you?

Problem solved!

The BedJet wireless climate control system provides a powerful flow of cool or hot air underneath your sheets, providing instant cooling and heating relief all over your body.

With the dual-zone unit, your partner can now adjust their own sleeping temperature without disturbing your sleep.

And you don't need to fiddle with dials or buttons in the night. You control the BedJet V2 using your tablet, wireless remote or smartphone.

If you get cold at night or sleep on a foam mattress that feels hot, this is one of the best mattress climate control systems you can get.

It's also the perfect solution if you experience hot flashes and night sweats because you can adjust the temperature at any time – and the relief is instantaneous.


How the BedJet Cools and Heats Your Bed

bedjet review

The BedJet functions exactly like your home's air conditioner – it blows cool or warm air near your body to maintain the comfort level of your bed.

The unit has three major components:

  1. the base unit, the muscles and the brain of the system. This is where room air is heated or cooled and forced into your bed with a fan. The air also passes through a filter to make sure you are not breathing in dust and germs.
  2. the hose which carries heated/cooled air from the base unit into your sheets. It is attached to a nozzle that goes under your comforter and distributes air evenly.
  3. the hose is connected to the AirComforter sheet, which disperses the air evenly across your body, keeping you cool or toasty.

The BedJet comes with a wireless remote control which you can use to set your climate preferences, control the degree of airflow and set the automatic switch-off timer.

You can also use a tablet or your smartphone to control the airflow, temperature, and timer.


Best Features

bedjet review

The main advantage that a forced-air system like BedJet has overheating pads and electric blankets is that it warms and cools your body instantly – and all over.

There's no waiting period, which means that you don't need to pre-heat your bed before you sleep. Get into bed, turn your BedJet on and choose your desired settings.  BedJet warms or cools you in just 30 seconds.

In comparison, heating pads and blankets often take several minutes to warm up.

Another big advantage is that the BedJet does not change the way your mattress feels like most water-based cooling/heating systems do. There are no cables to poke into your body, either.

But our favorite feature, which we will discuss in more detail later, is the dual-zone temperature controller that lets couples control the temperature of their side of the bed individually. If you enjoy sleeping cool, but your spouse keeps cranking up the thermostat to compensate (like I do), then this feature is a lifesaver.

In addition, you can enhance your sleeping experience with aromatherapy using BedJet V2's new aromatherapy diffuser kit.

Another feature we appreciate is the Biorhythm function included with BedJet V2 that automatically chooses a personalized comfort level for each hour of the night – to make sure you sleep soundly.

You can also activate the included temperature-change wake-up alarm in the morning, which is a more peaceful way to get your day started than an alarm clock.  You will wake up better-rested and more energized.

In short, the BedJet system is a very well-thought-out climate control system that offers features that improve your overall sleep experience.

Wireless Remote

Bedjet v2

Unlike heating pads which have an attached remote, BedJet includes a wireless remote you could place wherever you find suitable.

The control is simple to use. There are just a few buttons, and they are clearly labeled.

The switches control cooling and heating levels, timer and amount of airflow. It also contains an option to mute the noise made by the remote each time you change any setting.

Aromatherapy Kit

Calling it a kit is a small stretch. It's just a clamp and foam strips.

You're supposed to add a few drops of essential oil (not included) into a strip and then securing it to the interior of the nozzle opening with the clamp.

It is going to diffuse the oil scent around the bed, as air flows from the nozzle.

Mobile App

BedJet Review

As a result of BedJet's Bluetooth connectivity, you have the choice to use a tablet or your phone rather than the remote control.

You must download the BedJet app and connect it with the unit.  Both iOS and Android users can download and use this app.

There are many features in the app beyond the basic controls. Here's the best one – auto-shut off timer display. It lets you check how much time is left.

  • You can also see how much time is staying when you're in the Turbo heat mode (you're permitted to use this mode for limited periods only).
  • Memory functions to store and recall your settings. Saves you the hustles every night of choosing the same settings.
  • A customizable silent alarm and Biorhythm programming.

The app is simple to use, though there's a learning curve as you get used to the settings and features.

Dual Zone Choice for Couples

bedjet dual zone option

When sleeping most couples have different comfort choices. One spouse will favor sleeping more relaxed or warmer than the other.

The BedJet DualZone option ensures you both sleep comfortably. You each can make your side of the mattress as cold or hot as you wish.

Not use the dual-zone feature; you will have to find the AirComforter sheet. It's split into two pockets for each side of the mattress.

The kit includes two remote controls, two hoses and nozzles, and two foundation components.

Hook up a foundation unit and remember to turn on the zone switch. This lower the power draw to prevent overloading of the circuit.

Keep in mind that the DualZone choice is available for King and Queen sized beds.

Sleeping Experience

The BedJet is designed so you are always in control of your sleeping comfort.

Personally, I love the feel of air circulating over my body at night. I like the wear thinner PJs because of it.

But the many options and the settings make this system flexible for anyone.  If you don't like the sensation of air passing over your body, you can lower the fan speed to decrease airflow to a trickle.

The ability to adjust the temperature at night from my bed is also really nice.  No more getting up to adjust the thermostat!

Note: BedJet advises that your room temperature should be lower than 80 degrees for the ultimate cooling experience. You are still going to cool when the room is hotter than that, just not as efficiently or quickly.

Optional Comforter

If you get the dual zone system, then buy the optional comforter because it lets you set separate climate control zones on each side of the bed.

BedJet also recommends buying the comforter if you need extra cooling performance. The comforter circulates the cool air more efficiently and evenly than the sheet.

A slot is on each side of the comforter to secure an air nozzle.

If your spouse doesn't need heating and cooling, it is possible to leave their side as it is and hook up only your side of the mattress.

BedJet also sells comforters for full-size or twin beds.


Benefits

  • Easy to install and operate
  • Excellent cooling and heating performance — better than an electric blanket or a cooling/heating pad.
  • Perfect for anyone who gets hot flashes or night sweats.
  • Safe for pets
  • Lots of options and configurations.

Concerns

  • The sheet clips onto the nozzle aren't that useful. You might need to tuck in your top sheet under the mattress to keep it from shifting.
  • The power cord is short.
  • The noise can be a nuisance when set on high – unless you like white noise, in which case you might actually like it.

More on the Sound Level…

One of BedJet's competitors uses sound level when marketing against them.  We think that's unfair, to be honest.

Yes, it's true that when you set the unit on high, the BedJet can be a bit loud.

On most nights, though, you won't need to set it on high and the sound level is much easier to live with.

At about 38 dB, the normal cooling level is just a little louder than a whisper.  It is just as quiet when heating at 50%.

The highest heating and cooling settings are louder – about the same as a white sound machine.

You may actually find the sound relaxing if you love white noise like we do.


Installation & Setup

Preparing the Base Unit

The base unit is the unit that goes under your bed.

You need 7″ of vertical space under the bed for it to fit. However, your side railing can be lower than that. You need only 3.5″ of clearance to the hose to get fitted.

Based on how low your side rail is, you may need to lift your bed to have the base unit beneath.

Have a platform bed with no space underneath?  No problem, you can use a BedJet. You just need to place the base unit adjacent to your bed.

Make sure that you place the base unit close to a power socket, though, because the power cord is a bit short. If you can't get an outlet you can plug it into any 15 amp appliance-rated extension cord – but do not plug anything else into the extension cord because this unit uses a lot of power when it heats.

A washable air filter comes along with the base unit. Check the manual for directions regarding how to remove and wash it. It is a lifetime filter, so you won't need to buy a replacement.

Installing the Adaptive Mattress Mount

bedjet review

So the trickiest part of setting up the BedJet system is installing and securing the mattress hose mount, which holds the nozzle and the hose in place at night. The mount is especially helpful if you or your spouse shift or kick at night.

The mount is designed to operate with all sorts of mattresses. It has sections that let you make it low or as high as you wish to depend on how thick your mattress is.

Don't be concerned if the mount seems too low for your extra-tall mattress. The hose is stretchy and will easily make it.

You'll use a few clamps to hold the top sheet to your bed & to keep it from shifting at night.

You may set the mount on any side of the mattress. For even, whole-body cooling or heating the best place to position it is on the foot side right or the left corners depending on which side of the bed you sleep on.

Connecting the Air Hose and Nozzle

Bedjet V2 Wireless Climate Comfort Heating and Cooling System

With the mount in place and the base unit under the bed, the rest of the setup is trouble-free.

Slide the air nozzle into the hose top end and position in properly. The nozzle is where the air will come out, so it needs to be flush with the top of your mattress.

Secure the hose onto the ring grip and place the nozzle flush in front of the mattress top.

Insert the opposite end of the hose into the bottom unit's air output.

And voila – you can use your BedJet.

Just plug it into an outlet and switch it on. If you're using the dual zone system, make sure that the low-power dual zone switch is ON.


Customer Feedback

customer feedback

BedJet V2 enjoys an average 4.2 to 5.0 stars on all of the retail sites and review sites we could find, averaging about a 4.5 out of 5.

A clear majority of reviewers gave it a 5-star score (85 percent of reports). Most mentioned its excellent cooling and heating performance, the easy to use remote control and app, the flexible settings and excellent customer support.

Most of the complaints have to do with the noise on high setting.


Warranty and Maintenance

BedJet comes with a 2-year warranty. They guarantee to replace or repair it free of cost if components malfunction.

Maintenance is a breeze. You only need to wash and remove the filter every three months.  And wash the sheets, of course.


Our Rating

bedjet review

This is a great addition to my bedroom that solved a long-standing quarrel with my husband, Eric.  We don't always use it – but when the summer heat comes on strong or I'm hot flashing, our BedJet saves the day.

All versions of the BedJet will do a far better job cooling or heating you at night than mattress pads or electric blankets can.

As far as V2, we love the dual-zone cooling/heating for couples and the instant cooling and heating.  We also like the total body temperature effect – more so than water-based systems or pads that only heat or cool one side of your body.

The remote control and app are also well-done and easy to use.

The only downside is that when you need maximum heating or cooling, the unit can be a bit loud.

At $300-$400 per sleeping zone, the BedJet V2 is not cheap, but if you have been struggling with an overly hot or cold bed or your partner likes a very different temperature than you, I highly recommend making the investment.
