Im trying to decide on keeping my 5 yr old tempurpedic king size mattress or my boyfriends 2 yr old queen size IComfort mattress. His queen has the adjustable base with massage. I want to keep the one that is going to last the longest and give the most comfort. Size is not a factor and thought the adjustable base would be nice it won’t be a deciding factor either. I know IComfort is new and I do love my tempurpedic.
Based on the age and brand of each, which will last the longest and maintain comfort the longest?
It would depend to some degree on the specific models you have because both iComfort and Tempurpedic make a range of mattresses and each of them can use different materials inside them. In terms of durability a mattress is only as good as its construction and the quality and durability of the materials inside it regardless of the name of the manufacturer on the label.
In very general terms the materials in most Tempurpedic mattresses are generally higher quality/density and would be more durable than the materials in most of the iComfort mattresses but it’s not really possible to say more than that without knowing which specific models you have and more specific information about what is inside both of them.
My mattress is a Tempurpedic Rhapsody that will be 5 years in May. His IComfort Savant is almost 2 years old but was in storage for 4 mos.
I’m wanting to keep my tempurpedic and just get the adjustable base for it rather than keep the IComfort.
The Savant contained the following layers …
2" KoolComfort Memory Foam - 3 lb density: This is a low quality./density memory foam
1" Comfort Foam - 1.35 lb density: This is a low quality/density polyfoam
2 3/4" CoolAction Gel Memory Foam - 4 lb density: This is a medium quality/density memory foam
6" ComfortLast Support Core: This is a medium quality/density polyfoam.
The 3" of low quality/density materials in the top layers of the mattress this would be a significant weak link in the mattress and would be subject to foam softening and breakdown much more quickly than higher quality/density materials.
The Tempurpedic Rhapsody contained the following layers …
1.2" TEMPUR-HD - 7.1 LB memory foam: This is a very high quality/density memory foam.
2.8" TEMPUR memory foam - 5.3lb: This is also a high quality/density memory foam
4" 2.2lb Convoluted polyfoam:
4" 2.2lb Convoluted polyfoam: Both of the base layers are high quality/density polyfoam
All of the materials in this mattress are high quality materials and there are no lower quality materials or weak links in the mattress.
There is no doubt that the Tempurpedic Rhapsody would be a much more durable mattress and the odds are very high that even though it’s older it would almost certainly have more years of comfort life left than the Savant.
