Why does heat build-up in a memory foam mattress?

The main complaint of memory foam mattresses is heat retention. This build-up heat can cause sleep disruptions and night sweats for plenty of reasons. As we know memory foam is a dense, synthetic material, and density generates enough support to the body. In the meantime when this porous material is filled with tiny air bubbles, they are not interconnected, restricting airflow, as a result, heat gets trapped with the lack of air exposure to the skin.

The similar accommodating properties that make traditional memory foam stand out also causes heat retention. As these properties relieve pressure points and evenly distribute body weight, it also tends to use body heat to mold to your shape.

Why does heat disrupt sleep?

To maintain a cool temperature, your body generally relies on on-air exposure. The lack of air affects the body’s ability to thermoregulate. Thermoregulation is the method that lets the body to maintain an internal core temperature despite outside situations. It is less effective during deep sleep. And without proper air circulation, the heat buildup causes nerve sensors to become uncomfortable, which will cause you to wake up.
