BedJet Review

If you’ve ever wished you could control the warmth of your bedding, this review is for you. The Bedjet Climate Control System is carefully crafted to offer sleepers the ability to regulate their bed (and body) temperature while they sleep. But how do you use it and how well does it actually work? Keep reading to find out!

Brand Snapshot

BedJet founder Mark Aramli first introduced his climate control system on an episode of the reality TV series Shark Tank in 2015. Unfortunately for Aramli, the BedJet was unanimously rejected by the show’s celebrity investors. But that didn’t stop him from launching a crowdfunded Kickstarter campaign which proved to be very successful, and propelled the company to where it is today.

Fast forward to 2019, and you can find three different BedJet models sold by many popular retailers like Amazon, Brookstone, and Bed, Bath and Beyond. In this review, we’ll be taking a close look at the newest BedJet model — the BedJet3.

How Does the BedJet 3 Work?

The BedJet is a climate-control system that offers customizable temperature settings for both single and partnered sleepers, depending on whether you get a Single Zone or Dual Zone setup. For this review, I tested the Single Zone BedJet3 which is ideal for single sleepers, or partners who have the same temperature preferences. If you opt for the Dual Zone Bundle, you’ll get two BedJets that can be operated independently, ideal for sleepers who run at different temperatures.

A hose rests directly on top of your mattress, and blows air into your bedding. The temperature, intensity, and duration of the airflow is totally up to you, and is controlled using a remote and/or smart device. Personally, I prefer to use the remote because it’s sleek, easy to use, and deters me from using my phone in bed.

Not to mention, every BedJet function is clearly labeled on the remote’s buttons, so even those of us who are less than tech-savvy should be able to figure it out. For example, when you want the BedJet to cool you down, press the button that reads, “cool.” When you want to be warmed, press the button that reads “heat,” and hot air will be blown right into the bedding.

And when I say “hot,” I mean the BedJet can reach 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Don’t be alarmed, though — it doesn’t feel that hot on your skin. Instead, the warming function makes your sheets feel like they’ve just been pulled out the dryer. If you want to decrease the heat, just click the minus sign on the button that reads, “temp.” Similarly, click the minus sign on the button that reads “fan” when you want to lower the intensity of the airflow.

While I’m sure the warming feature would come in great handy in the Winter, I enjoyed the cooling function the most. The temperature can be set as low as 66 degrees Fahrenheit and, as a hot sleeper, I was impressed by how comfortably cool it kept me. If you want to increase the temperature, just hit the plus sign on the button that reads “temp.”

If (and when) you do find a temperature/fan speed combination that perfectly suits your needs, you can save it to your remote! In fact, you can save up to three customized settings by holding the M1, M2, and M3 buttons for five seconds. Once your preference has been preset, you only need to tap the M button once, and it’ll jump right to your saved setting.

There’s also a button labeled “time” which allows you to set a timer for your BedJet (just in case you don’t want it running all night long.) And if there’s a problem with your BedJet, hit the button labeled with a question mark and customer service information, including E-mail and telephone number, will pop up on the remote’s screen.

And last (but not least), is the “dry” function. Sleepers who want to feel a nice, airy breeze, but don’t want it to be cooling or warming, can hit the “dry” button. Essentially, this makes the BedJet blow temperature-neutral air into your bedding, which I found to be particularly useful for wicking sweat.

Okay, now that we know how the BedJet3 works, you might be wondering how it compares with other temperature regulating devices. So let’s take a look at the differences between the BedJet3 and another popular climate control system — the ChiliPad.

The BedJet3 VS The ChiliPad

Like the BedJet, the ChiliPad is designed to help sleepers control the temperature of their sleep space. However, there are some fundamental differences between the two, so let’s take a closer look so you can determine which is best for you!

  • Temperature Control – The main difference between these two devices is that the BedJet uses air to regulate temperature, and the ChiliPad uses water. The Chilipad is a mattress pad built with internal microtubing through which water flows. By adjusting the temperature of the water, sleepers are able to cool or heat the pad. Meanwhile, the BedJet regulates temperature by blowing cool or warm air directly into your bedding.
  • Design – As I said, the ChiliPad is a mattress pad, and should be positioned beneath your fitted sheet. The BedJet, on the other hand, blows air over your fitted sheet, and beneath your top sheet. Think of it this way: the ChiliPad is a temperature regulating mattress pad, while the BedJet is more like a fan that blows cooling or warming air right into your bedsheets.
  • Size – Both the ChiliPad and BedJet offer Dual Zone options wherein sleepers can separately regulate the temperature of each side of the bed. That said, I found the ChiliPad units to be a bit more bulky and cumbersome as compared to the BedJet3, so folks short on space might want to take this into consideration (especially if you’re getting a Dual Zone setup).
  • Temperature Range – The BedJet ranges in temperature from 66-104 degrees Fahrenheit, while the ChiliPad ranges from 55-110 degrees Fahrenheit! So, sleepers looking for a wider temperature range might be better off with the ChiliPad.
  • Price – With both the ChiliPad and BedJet3 ranging from about $500-$1,000, the price point for these systems is quite comparable.
  • Maintenance – The BedJet is easier to clean than the ChiliPad, as it’s only a matter of occasionally rinsing the unit’s filter. Because the ChiliPad runs on water, sleepers must regularly refill the units with distilled water. Using distilled water is not mandatory, but the folks at ChiliPad say it will prevent a buildup of mold and mildew.

Now you know the primary differences between these two devices, but if you want to know every last detail about the ChiliPad (and watch me personally test it), be sure to check out my full review! But first, let’s go over the highlights of the BedJet3.

Should I Buy the BedJet3?

I’ll be honest — I’m a big fan of this device and there’s a lot that I’m liking about the BedJet3. Let’s go over some of my favorite features so that you can decide whether or not it’s the right fit for you!

  • Cloud Sheet – Though the BedJet is designed to be compatible with your existing bedsheets, I prefer the Cloud Sheet. For comparison, I tested the BedJet with my own top sheet, and then with the Cloud Sheet, and found the latter to do a better job of keeping the airflow contained. Afterall, the Cloud Sheet is made specifically for the BedJet. Not to mention, it’s made from 100% cotton and feels super soft to the touch.
  • Rapid Climate Control – I’m impressed by how quickly the temperature changes! I have tested and reviewed the ChiliPad (a temperature regulating mattress pad), and my biggest complaint was that it took too long to heat up and cool down. With the BedJet, the air gets cool or warm immediately.
  • Remote Settings – Not only does the remote have a sleek design, but it’s very easy to use. If you’re intimidated by technology in the bedroom, believe me when I say this remote couldn’t be more intuitive. Everything is clearly labeled, and the screen is easy to read. I also appreciate that the customer service info is easily accessible if you run into operation issues.
  • Temperature Range – Ranging from 66 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit, most sleepers should be able to find their ideal comfort zone. The cool air feels like a pleasant breeze, and the warm air makes your sheets feel like they’re fresh from the dryer. And for folks who just want to feel fanned, the “dry” setting is the way to go.
  • Timer – In my opinion, the timer is one of the most useful features because the BedJet will turn itself off while you’re fast asleep. If you don’t want the airflow to run all night, just set your timer to exactly when you want it to shut down, and you don’t have to worry about it again.
  • Customer Friendly – The Cloud Sheet is 100% cotton, so sleepers can feel free to throw it in the wash with the rest of their cotton bedding. No special wash care required — just use a gentle cycle with mild detergent, and tumble dry on low heat. Additionally, each BedJet comes with a 60-day risk-free return policy so, if you decide the BedJet isn’t for you, you have 60 days to be fully refunded!

BedJet3 Complaints

Of course, there are a few things about the BedJet that some folks might consider to be drawbacks:

  • Missing Information – The one thing that’s missing from the User’s Manual is the explanation of the M1, M2, and M3 buttons. Every other button on the remote is clearly labeled and explained except for the “memory” function, so I had to figure that out on my own.
  • Whirring Noise – The BedJet does make a slight whirring noise when it’s on, and get louder as you increase the fan’s intensity. This was no problem for me, as I enjoy the whirring white noise of a fan. However, if you’re a very light sleeper, or need absolute silence in order to fall asleep, this is something to consider.
  • Pricey – The Single Zone BedJet3 costs about $450, the Dual Zone Bundle costs about $1,000… and neither are going to be in everyone’s budget. However, the company does offer monthly financing through Affirm (details available on BedJet website).

How Do I Set Up the BedJet 3?

Before I fill you in on how to set up the BedJet3, just note that every purchase comes with a User’s Manual that walks you through each step. The User’s Manual is about twenty pages long, so allow me to hit you with the need-to-know basics:

  1. You need a top sheet in order to make sure airflow is evenly distributed, and stays trapped beneath the covers. The company’s Cloud Sheet comes with three small openings in which the BedJet hose can be inserted, and I recommend replacing your top sheet with the Cloud Sheet for the best results. The Cloud Sheet is a separate purchase, but comes included if you buy the Dual Zone BedJet.
  2. Once your bed is made, slip the Mattress Mount Base directly beneath your mattress, under the area in which you want to experience the most airflow. I put mine right in the center of the base of the bed, which I found to offer the most even distribution of air.
  3. Then, attach the nozzle to the hose, and attach the hose to the Mattress Mount. The nozzle is what blows the air into your bed, and should rest directly on top of your mattress. If you find the nozzle is too far above your bed, you can adjust the height by removing pieces of the Mattress Mount Base.

  4. Next, place the BedJet beneath the Mattress Mount, and attach the bottom of the hose to the circular opening on the BedJet.
  5. Plug the BedJet into an outlet, put two AA batteries (included) in the remote, and slip the Cloud Sheet over the top of the hose nozzle. If you’re using your own top sheet, tuck it beneath your mattress to make sure the air doesn’t escape.
  6. Turn your BedJet on, sync it to your remote and/or smartphone, and you’re ready to go! If you do choose to sync your smart device, simply download the BedJet App and follow the on-screen instructions.

Remember folks — if you ever get confused, you can refer to the User’s Manual. Each component is clearly pictured and labeled, so there’s no mistaking the Mattress Mount for the nozzle, etc. And don’t worry about syncing your remote to the BedJet; as soon as you turn the BedJet on, your remote provides easy on-screen instructions that take you through the process of syncing everything up.

Summary

The BedJet is an interesting replacement to more traditional electronic blankets and mattress pads. It functions as a strong addition to any mattress, driving cool or warm air under the sheets, duvet, or comforter. The smart phone integration and other advanced features are nice extras to an ultimately solid product. For sleepers who are too hot or too cold at night the BedJet can help provide a more comfortable sleeping surface on your mattress.
