BedJet Climate System Review

Getting a good night’s sleep can be complicated. Many factors affect how quickly we fall asleep and how well we sleep throughout the night. One such factor is temperature! Achieving an optimal temperature for proper sleep can seem like a roller coaster, one minute you’re covered in blankets, the next minute you’ve got the fan going. Or, as many have likely experienced, the common set up of one leg out of the covers to keep a balanced bedroom temperature. In today’s review we want to take a look at one option, the Climate Control System by BedJet to see if it could be the answer to your problems. Let’s find out.

Could a Climate Control System Be the Answer?

To remedy this common dilemma, we’ve seen products such as heated blankets for when you need that extra warmth at night become increasingly popular. But what happens when you’re too hot, or worse yet, fluctuate between hot and cold throughout the night? Far too often have I woken up in the middle of the night because I am sweating, an uncomfortable experience I am sure many of you can relate to.

Why You Need a BedJet

When we first learned about BedJet, a complete climate control solution for your bed, we were excited to get our hands on it for testing! Heated blankets traditionally use insulated wires or heating elements provided inside the fabric of the blanket for warming and can present some fire hazards if not used properly, they are also only good for heating and not for cooling.

Bed Jet, on the other hand, is an add-on unit that uses a hose to blast cold, warm, or hot air under your sheets, trapping the air to help regulate temperature. This gives you complete climate control under the sheets, so is BedJet the future of sleeping or is it just a load of hot air? Keep reading to find out!

How does the BedJet work?

BedJet is controlled through a neat and well-designed remote control. The rubber buttons light up softly with a gentle white illumination when the remote detects your touch, this is labeled as shake and wake. So, no more fumbling around in the dark! You can also adjust the sensitivity in options if you find it responds too much or not enough.

The remote features a beautiful, color LCD display which is both clean and easy to understand. From here you can scan for your BedJet, read the battery life, see the current time, and of course, the main focus, see if the fan is on or off and which temperature it is set to. The remote is easily one of the most advanced remotes we have reviewed so far!

Remote Control Settings

The remote has the following basic presets for ease of use: COOL, TURBO, HEAT, EXT HT, DRY and BIORHYTHM. Bed Jet labels each one as follows:
PresetsDescription
CoolCooling off and drying sweat
Turbo HeatShort burst of very high heat, pre-warming the bed
HeatStrong warming for up to a few hours
Extended Heat (EXT HT)Moderate warming for all night use
DryFor rapid sweat drying without being too hot or too cold
BiorhythmCombinations of different warming/cooling mode automatically run over the night

In addition to these settings, you also have complete manual control to increase or decrease the heating/cooling, fan speed, or time, along with three custom buttons to setup presets that you like and store them to directly to memory.

We are a big fan of smart technology and automation, so the BIORHYTHM mode quickly became a favorite. This mode essentially automates itself, once you set it up, the temperature adjusts consistently throughout the night. So when BedJet states on their website, this is no simple bedroom fan or electric blanket, we’re inclined to agree!

Our BedJet Experience

In general, we noticed that each setting performs extremely well for what it is designed for. The Bluetooth control and settings are just the tips of the iceberg, the acoustic sound dampening technology goes a long way to ensure that once the device is running, it won’t keep you awake. Rather, it provides a gentle hum that is soothing and calming, so much so that it blends into the background. In fact, our home air conditioning is louder!

Having a solution for climate control during the night has changed the way we sleep. We live in a hot, humid climate and my wife sleeps hot, I mean REALLY hot. Before BedJet, we often had to have the fan running continuously throughout the night or, we would have to lower the thermostat to a nighttime temperature setting, normally 3 degrees cooler than we kept it throughout the day. In the really hot summer months, sometimes we’d have to do both! While there are many tricks to achieving a cooler sleeping experience, such as cooling mattresses, cooling pillows and cooling sheets, we have to admit, the BedJet 3 climate system has been a game-changer!

BedJet's Beginnings

Bed Jet has an interesting history behind it. Based in Rhode Island and Connecticut, it was founded and invented by Mark Aramli, whose first engineering job was at United Technologies, builder of the NASA spacesuit. Mark’s responsibilities included developing the spacesuit’s primary life support system (PLSS), specifically, elements relating to heating, cooling, and climatic comfort of the interior spacesuit environment for the astronauts.

Impressive enough in itself, Mark also collaborated with BMW on their first zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered, 7-series sedan, along with developing specialty technology products like remote man-portable solar power systems for the U.S. Army and Marines. So, BedJet certainly has an impressive record of experience!

BedJet Set Up and Options

The BedJet is simple to set up, once out of the box you shouldn’t have much trouble connecting to tubing straight to the Bed Jet V3 base unit and attaching the end air nozzle that should slide neatly under the sheet.

BedJet does sell sheets specifically for this attachment, or you may use your own. BedJet’s sheets essentially wrap around the hosing and trap the air within the sheet more efficiently. If you prefer to use your own sheets, it will work as well. BedJet does suggest at least a 250 thread count for the best results. From our own experience, we would also suggest tucking the sheet around the hosing to get the best seal, but this is not required. The hose even has some clips on the side to help secure everything in place. The sateen sheet collection by Nectar has been one of our favorites for use with the BedJet.

If you and your sleep partner prefer the same temperature settings, you should be fine with just one unit. If, however, you and your partner tend to prefer different temperatures, you will be happy to learn that BedJet offers a dual climate control system. For the dual climate system, you would receive 2 BedJet hoses for positioning on either side of the bed versus the single unit used in the middle of the bottom of the bed.

Mounting your BedJet

BedJet also comes with a mattress mount assembly which is essentially a plastic bar that slides under the mattress and holds the tubing close to the bed. It has a soft side, so as not to damage the mattress. It acts to clamp the clip in place so it doesn’t move around too much. BedJet also comes with several height size adjustments so that you can raise or lower the tubing as needed.

The tube itself is incredibly flexible and can be shaped to fit almost any position, this makes it easy to set up the base unit exactly where you need it. For example, if your bed doesn’t have any under bed storage, it’s too low to the ground, or you simply don’t like the base unit being in the way, you have some customization here, especially if your wall socket isn’t in the most ideal area for it.

This flexibility is important as it gives you the option of placing the tubing in the optimum position for the bed. You can center it at the bottom, so that both you and your partner get the benefits, or you can place it off to one side if only one of you needs climate control. This customization also comes in handy if you choose to add a second BedJet system, allowing you to adjust each side accordingly.
