Waterbed Heaters

Temperature Control for Year-Round Comfort

The thermostat-controlled waterbed heater helps keep your body at a comfortable temperature. You can adjust the thermostat to provide just the warmth you prefer and relax to the even, soothing warmth of the heated watermattress. Caress your body with inviting warmth on cold winter nights. Or, when the weather is warmer, lower the thermostat to enjoy cool, comfortable slumber. You can even save money on room heating and air conditioning costs, while enjoying the sleeping environment that's custom-made for you!

PLEASE NOTE: Waterbed heaters may take 5 to 7 days to heat to the desired temperature based upon the water and room temperature. All heaters heat at an average of a 1/4 to 1/2 degree per hour and turning the settings up to 100 degrees will not heat the water any faster.

 

Calesco Waterbed Heaters

Calesco Waterbed Heaters have been the most reliable waterbed heater that we've ever sold in our 45 years of business! We recommend you replace an old waterbed heater whenever you have an opportunity, like when you're moving or buying a new watermattress.

The only difference between these two waterbed heaters is the wattage and it's important to select the correct model. Hardside Waterbeds require a high watt waterbed heater and Softside Waterbeds require a low watt waterbed heater.

How Does Temperature Relate to Sleep Quality?
By Dr. Robert Oexman, Directory of the Sleep To Live Institute

The sleep and wake cycle that we move through every day is mediated by a process called the circadian rhythm: a 24-hour process that picks up cues from external stimuli like daylight and serves as an "internal clock."  One of the primary markers of this cycle is temperature.  As most people probably already know, human core body temperature averages around 98.6 F.  What most people don't realize is that their core body temperature does not stay constant throughout the day.

As the evening approaches, core body temperature begins to drop and drowsiness increases as the transition to sleep begins.  It will continue to drop over night until early morning when it will begin to rise again.  It naturally has a brief dip in temperature during the afternoon before it rises to its peak at the end of the day, to start all over.  The afternoon dip is felt by most people who will get tired after lunch and in some cultures, naps prevail during this "siesta" time of day.

At night the temperature under the covers can affect this cycle, resulting in a decline in sleep quality.  According to most studies, the best near-body temperature under the covers that is required for good sleep is around 85.1 F termed "thermal neutral zone" (a near-body temperature range that allows the body to maintain it's internal temperature easily).

One study found that the thermal neutral zone was consistently maintained under a standard (two sheets and a wool blanket) set of covers while the room temperature was between 66.2 and 71.6 F.  Sleep to Live recommends a more conservative range of 68-80 F for the bedroom temperature; however, varying numbers of covers and different types of linens can make for a borderline range from 65-73 degrees reasonable.
