Brand Snapshot

The Air-Pedic 800 and the Air-Pedic 850 are two of the many mattresses made by SelectaBed, who makes not only air adjustable beds, but also memory foam, latex and hybrid mattresses. All of these mattresses are developed by a Chiropractor that specializes in back pain. Dr. Rick Swartzburg has almost 20 years of experience in pain relief and product development for Relief-Mart and Select A Bed. Each mattress is assembled from top to bottom in their Agoura Hills, California factory using all Made In The U.S.A. foam and covering materials. Because they make every mattress, they have the ability to custom design the perfect mattress for you.

Air-Pedic's Dual Adjustability

We have been sleeping on the Air-Pedic 800 mattress for the last few weeks and it has truly been some of the best sleep we have ever had. We love the fully adjustable air chambers on each side and the supportive foam on top. Air-Pedic has it all, adjustability, temperature balancing benefits, built with natural and certified safe materials that are made in the USA and a great warranty. Let’s take a deeper look at what makes this mattress so great!

Air-Pedic's Adjustable Air Construction

When you think of an air adjustable mattress you might think of Sleep Number. What sets Air-Pedic apart is the 4 additional air chambers. You might ask, why is this important? If you only have one air chamber on each side you could get a feeling as if you are in a hammock. Your middle lumbar region could start to sag pulling your spine out of alignment. With the Air-Pedic you are able to separately adjust the lumbar region to allow you the best spinal alignment and support. If you are not sure your spine is properly straight or not, they have an app called Mattress Checker that will help you with that.

Air-Pedic 800 Layers

  • Kool-Flow® Micro-Vented Bamboo Viscous Covering: The cover has a wonderful soft feel and is breathable to allow the cooling layers underneath to work together. It is also stretchy so that you can to feel the hugging foam and allow you to sink in more to the mattress providing pressure relief.
  • 1 inch Hypergel Plush Top Cooling Layer: This springy-soft layer provides a cooling affect and will help with pressure relief. You won’t get hot with this mattress which is a common problem with other types of foam. This top layer has a quick response and works with the layer below to create a nice balanced foam feel.
  • 1.5 inches Gel-Infused Cooling Foam: Working with the layer above it provides additional cooling and pressure relief. This layer is more slow response and will allow you to sink in without feeling stuck in the mud.
  • 1.5 inches HD Flex Comfort Layer: For additional comfort and pressure relief, this layer is a soft flexible quick response foam to allow your curves to be supported by the air chambers below.
  • 2 inches Resili-Flex Support Layer : This support layer acts as a transition between the foam layers and the air chambers.
  • 6 Chamber, Multi-Zone Air System : With three different zones on each side of the bed you are able to control the lumbar area separate from the head and feet. This has been perfect for making sure your spine is aligned properly. The chambers are made with longer lasting 100% Medical Grade, Ultra Flexible Urethane Chambers that are inherently mold and mildew resistant and are controlled by a remote for each side of the bed.

Air-Pedic 850 Layers

The Air-Pedic 850 has the same construction as the Air-Pedic 800, with one main difference. Instead of the 1.5″ HD Flex Comfort Layer, the 850 replaces that layer with a  1.5″ Poly-Flex Comfort Layer.  This layer of the Air-Pedic 850 offers a more buoyant support over the luxurious plush feel of the Air-Pedic 800.

Optional Patented Airflow Transfer System

In addition to the standard built-in cooling layers they offer an optional patented airflow transfer system. This means that they aerate the top layers of foam and create channels on the bottom to create airflow throughout the whole mattress. We got this on the mattress we are testing and the mattress doesn’t feel hot at night. We often sleep with the fan on even in winter and lately there hasn’t been a need to turn it on.

Certified Safe and Hypoallergenic

As a company that prides itself on producing hypoallergenic, non-toxic and environmentally friendly products, you can feel reassured by the fact that their products come with certified components by three different companies. The two popular certifications are Greenguard and CertiPUR-US. In addition to these two, they have The Green Bear Mark of Excellence. You can rest assured that when this mattress comes into your home there will be no toxic chemicals spilling into the air that you breathe.

Pressure Relieving Adjustable Feel

When you first lay on the mattress it will likely be completely filled. If it is not, you can easily fill the mattress by pressing the fill button. When it is at the number 100, this will be at the firmest setting and will be good for stomach and some back sleepers. If this is too firm, you can slowly let air out until you feel comfortable. This eliminates the issue of not know what firmness you should buy because you can adjust it once you receive the mattress. The 6 inches of foam above the air chambers are very supportive. This is important because you won’t feel like your sleeping on a cheap blow up mattress.

Adjustable Firmness

This mattress is fully adjustable and will be will be well suited for any type of sleeper.  In fact, the adjustability allows for different firmness settings on either side of the bed. So for example, if you want a firm mattress and your partner prefers extra soft, you can both have your dream mattress without compromising. The only con to having adjustability is it might take a few nights to find the right setting for you. Nevertheless, once you find that setting you will sleep comfortably all night. The other great benefit of having the extra lumbar adjustability is if you are pregnant or your body changes and you need extra support you can add that support with a push of a button rather than surrounding yourself with tons of pillows.

Is The Air-Pedic Mattress Good For Couples?

Not only is the Air-Pedic great for couples because of the adjustable firmness, but it also has very little motion transfer. The Air-Pedic 800 has memory foam in the top layers which dampen all movement in addition to the separate air chambers below which further isolates movement.

How Is The Air-Pedic's Edge Support?

The Air-Pedic has an extra encasement for the foam to create great edge support. When you sit on the edge of the bed you feel supported and don’t feel the mattress compressing underneath you. Additionally, when you lay down near the edge you will not feel as if you will fall off the bed.

Air-Pedic Mattress Purchase Details

Risk- Free Sleep Trial

It does take some time to get used to a new mattress and testing out a mattress for 5-10 minutes in the store isn’t a good indication of how well you’ll sleep on your new mattress night after night.  SelectaBed offers a 120 day sleep warranty so you can rest assured your new purchase is the perfect match for you. They do recommend that you give it at least 21 nights before you make your decision. Even though the mattress is adjustable, you still might prefer a different feel in the top foam layers of the mattress. The great thing about Air-Pedic is they have many different types of foam and can send you a replacement for the top portion of the mattress. This will give you a completely different feel without having to return the whole mattress.

Warranty

All of Selectabed Mattresses come with warranty of 30 years and the first 3 years are non-prorated. After looking at several different sites with customer reviews on Air-Pedic, it was hard to find any complaints on the mattress or company.

Shipping

Shipping costs between $99-$199 depending on the delivery you choose.The $99 shipping will only get the mattress delivered to your front door, however for $100 more you can get white glove delivery. With the size of the mattress, it is definitely worth the upgrade, especially if you need it moved to another level. 

How Much Does the Air-Pedic Mattress Cost?

In comparison to mattresses in general the price point is a little higher but when you think of what all you get it is certainly worth the investment.  A queen Air-Pedic 800 starts at $3,099.  For a limited time save up to $700 with our exclusive offer!

Alternatively, a queen Air-Pedic 850 starts at $4,998. For a limited time only get 50% off your purchase of the Air-Pedic 850

    Good morning ASL:

    My partner and I are in the market for a new mattress.
    As you both know, today there is a virtual forest of companies to choose from…it’s more than daunting.

    We’ve read the most current Consumer Report evaluations, viewed on line comparisons, watched YouTube video testimonials and evaluations.

    We’ve narrowed it down to two companies – Selectabed Air-Pedic 1000 Series and Personal Comfort Rejuvenation Series.

    Both have compelling stories and feature sets…

    What differentiates one from the other – the mattress, the adjustable bases…overall adjustability and support?

    Thanks!

    Don

    1. ASL Reviews

      Hi Don,

      Unfortunately, we have not had a chance to review any of the rejuvenation series mattresses. We are, however, extremely familiar with Air-Pedic! The Air-Pedic 1000 was actually on our list of best mattresses for 2021 so it is definitely a brand we stand behind.

      As for the rejuvenation series, it is my understanding that they are similar to the Sleep Number beds in that they only have one air chamber on either side of the mattress. Air-Pedic is equipped with 3 air chambers on either side. As you may have noted in some of our comparisons between Sleep Number and Air-Pedic we felt this gave Air-Pedic a significant advantage as this allowed us to make adjustments to the firmness levels at our shoulders, lumbar, and legs. This allowed us to target pressure points found in the hips and shoulders while maintaining proper spinal support. One chamber systems have a tendency to hammock, leaving the midsection sagging and not supported. Over time this can lead to increased back pain. If you haven’t already you can read our full Air-Pedic 1000 review for more information.

      Hope this helps!

    I purchased my mattress and received it in January I have not received any follow up calls to see if every thing was okay or not Have trying getting in touch with them no response

    1. ASL Reviews

      Hi Brent, I am very sorry to hear you have not received the follow-up you expected. Unfortunately, we do not work for any of the mattress companies that we review. But we appreciate the feedback! We take into account customer service and do like to make customers aware of trending problems.

  3. Paul

    So I’ve watched a lot of your reviews online on all different brands. MY REAL QUESTION IS: Which brand of mattress do you have in your own home that sleep on every singe night?
    My dad used to tell me (of course this was back before the internet and back when selection was not as broad) when researching a product, just ask them what they purchased,
    or better yet, what would they recommend their grandparents purchase? Sounds simple but I am really curious, if you had to spend your own money what Brand of Mattress would you invest in for your own daily use. I’m talking the BRAND you liked the most and trust their products (as most brands cover different variations of issues related to a good nights sleep).

    1. ASL Reviews

      Hi Paul! We are so glad you have found our content helpful in your pursuit for the perfect mattress. If I was helping my grandparents purchase a new mattress I would definitely want to first know their sleep preferences and sleep position. I would also take their weight and body type into consideration as well as learning what ailments they suffer from when sleeping. As all of these things greatly affect the sleeper experience. That being said we have a number of brands and mattresses that we stand behind in regards to the quality of product and comfort. We just recently updated our Best Mattresses of 2021 and you can find our top recommendations there. This list includes our absolute favorite brands and also reflects the mattresses that we have kept for our own personal use. You can also reach out to us on Facebook and we would be happy to chat directly if you’d like more information.

    Great reviews! I have severe arthritis in my back. Maybe a Lull will truly help. I’ve tried nearly everything to ease my aches and terrible pain every single day.

  5. Maria

    Yes me too I am a side sleeper my hips and my shoulder and side of my legs is hurting. what is the best bed for me?

  6. Bill Tabor

    For a side sleeper….what is the better airpedic…6,7,or 8?…and what is the comfort difference in the 850 model?

    1. ASL Reviews

      Hi Bill!

      Simply put, there is no better model Air-Pedic over another. As the numbers go up, the thickness of the foam goes up with it creating a more plush feeling mattress. Starting at the Air-Pedic 500 which is 10.5 inches thick, to the Air-Pedic 1000, 14.5 inches thick. So which mattress is better is dependant on what will suit your sleep preferences best.

      Mattress choice will be different for everyone for a multitude of reasons such as body type, weight, and more but generally, you will want a softer mattress if you are a side, back, or combo sleeper to allow your body to sink into the mattress while stomach sleepers will need the support of a firmer mattress.

      As for the difference between the Air-Pedic 800 and 850, the 850 has the same construction as the Air-Pedic 800, with one main difference. Instead of the 1.5? HD Flex Comfort Layer, the 850 replaces that layer with a 1.5? Poly-Flex Comfort Layer. This layer of the Air-Pedic 850 offers more buoyant support over the luxurious plush feel of the Air-Pedic 800. Hope this helps!

    I bought an Airpedic, kingsize last week, and have not received it or heard from anyone, Barbara, or Hubert D Swindall

    1. ASL Reviews

      Hi Barbara, sorry to hear you are having issues receiving the mattress. Unfortunately we do not actually work for the mattress companies we only review the products, your best bet would be to contact Air-Pedic directly. Thanks!

    2. Anonymous

      Yah it usually takes 5 weeks to get your bed,cuz they’re made to order. I just got mine this Thursday. I ordered mine 5 weeks ago.

  8. Deborah Anne Fritz

    Looking at purchasing Airpedic 650 split king with Flex Elite and air flow transfer. Are there comparable beds? The only one I know of is the Sleep Number PSE with flex fit1. WOuld like to compare other companies

    1. ASL Reviews

      Hi Deborah, thanks for reaching out! In terms of adjustable air beds we have reviewed and tested I would compare these two with ReST Performance which has interesting technological features such as a pressure sensor with automatic pump adjustments throughout the night and Natural Form which is a unique airbed in that it doesn’t require any electricity at all through adjustable air pods. If you’re looking for an all in one package air-adjustable (base included) I would say Air-Pedic or Sleep Number are your best bet.

  9. Steven

    My concern about this review is 3-fold. First, if you go on Air-Pedic’s website, there are 411 “Trust-Pilot” reviews, but ZERO of them are actually from Trust-Pilot, rather they are all their own website reviews if you look at the detailed breakdown of the “reviews”. Second concern is that there are no RECENT reviews…..the last reviews were posted all the way back in March of last year(I assume it was last year, as there is also no year listed). Third concern is that almost all the reviews have to do with the level of Customer Service that was received when Customers called with questions about the mattresses, rather than with the experience and satisfaction of the mattress itself after receiving it and sleeping on it. Your review here is great, but how can anyone trust this Company with all these red flags flying?

    1. ASL Reviews

      Hi Steven,

      Thanks for reaching out, apologies for the delay. We understand your concerns so we reached out to the company directly to get a better understanding of this. From what we can see on Air-Pedic’s website it doesn’t explicitly say they are Trust Pilot reviews but the review platform they are displaying the reviews through is powered by Trust Pilot, this is why you are seeing that 411 reviews are third party reviews.

      Now I can confirm from the company the reviews in question are pulled from third party websites like yelp, viewpoints and reseller ratings. In some cases Selectabed can also come under the main corporate banner, Relief-Mart, Inc. if you are searching independently. As for recent reviews it appears that the Trust Pilot platform hasn’t submitted any recent updates as you will see across the review sites mentioned that there are much more recent reviews that have been submitted, it simply hasn’t updated. With your help we have now brought this to Relief-Mart Inc. attention so Trust Pilot can update this.

      You should also see many reviews on Googles local Selectabed.com profile that contain reviews that were also not submitted. If you look through the recent reviews here you will see that all the reviews reference customers that have their mattress or have at least tried the mattress by testing it in their factory showroom location, with all of this in mind you will see that Selectabed/Air-Pedic has extremely favorable reviews across the board.

    Hi Debbie,

    I’m a side and stomach sleeper as well which can make it difficult finding the right mattress. Side sleeping generally requires more pressure relief through the hips and shoulders, while stomach sleepers generally require a much firmer, more supportive bed. Air adjustable beds with multiple air chambers are a great solution for this as they can independently adjust the firmness for shoulder, lumbar and legs. If cost is a factor, foam beds like Casper and Level have a multi-zone construction that works in a similar way. Of course Air adjustable beds really give you full customization and the Air-Pedic, like most of the mattresses on our site are available in sizes from Twin to California King.

  11. Debbie Proctor

    I like the idea of a side sleeper bed, I didn’t know there was such a thing. I often sleep on my side/ stomach and wake up with a sore lower back. Do you sale singles?
