Is your quality of sleep lacking?
If so, it might be your bed that’s the culprit. Sleeping on a flat surface is linked with poor circulation, nighttime breathing complications, muscle tension and pain and even nighttime heartburn. As a result, thousands of Americans are turning to electric adjustable beds each year with the hopes of reducing these problems.
Not sure if electric adjustable beds are the right answer for you? Find out more about the advantages and disadvantages of these beds with this list of pros and cons:
Pro: Reduced aches and pains
Did you know that your sleeping position could be causing tremendous muscle strain as you sleep, resulting in aches and pains in your neck and back throughout the day? By sleeping in an adjustable bed, with your head and torso elevated, your body gets much more support while you sleep, eliminating pain and tension in your muscles.
Not surprisingly, electric adjustable beds are much more expensive than regular queen beds. The average base model of an electric bed will run at about $800, running into the several thousands of dollars for nicer models. Additionally, you will have to pay for the costs of repairs, parts and the electricity to power your bed.
Pro: Stop snoring for good
No one is proud to snore while they sleep. But did you know you can actually reduce the likelihood that you’ll snore while you sleep by sleeping in an upright position? This is because sleeping with the torso elevated keeps your airways open and prevents sinus congestion — the two main causes of snoring.
Adjustable beds can weigh anywhere from 100 to 200 pounds to as much as 550 to 700 pounds. As a result, it’s essential to make sure the floor of your bedroom is equipped to support this kind of weight. Additionally, you likely won’t be able to move your bed around very much, so make sure it’s placed right where you want it in your room.
