Air mattresses are inflatable mattresses that, in their simplest form, are often used as temporary bedding or sleeping pads. Years ago, many families had guest rooms with beds that were used only occasionally, but today's high cost of housing has made it necessary for each room to serve multiple purposes. So air mattresses have become very popular, because they can be used in any room and are comfortable for overnight guests. This type of air mattress, constructed from sheet vinyl or textile-reinforced vinyl, can be rolled up and stored compactly on a shelf. It can be inflated by blowing air into a small air valve on the air mattress or, more efficiently, via a manual or electric air pump.
Higher quality air mattresses – sometimes called air beds – feature electric air pumps and easily adjustable firmness levels. They are designed for long-term use as permanent beds and are available in twin, full, queen, and king sizes. Some air beds even provide separate firmness adjustments for each side of the mattress! The materials and construction of these quality air mattresses may compare favorably to memory foam mattresses or traditional innerspring mattresses.
When shopping for an air mattress, it is important to consider its primary use. Rubber air mattresses are designed to last longer, and they are generally more expensive. Those with latex-rubber air chambers can usually last for several years of daily use. Vinyl air mattresses are least expensive, but they may only have 3 to 6 month guarantees. However, this is based on daily use, so a vinyl air mattress may suffice for occasional house guest use over a period of years.
