Amerisleep vs. Tempur-Pedic Mattress Overview

Amerisleep was founded in 2007. The brand currently offers five different mattress models. We’ve chosen the AS3 (formerly known as the Liberty) for this comparison because it is considered ‘Medium’ in terms of firmness, or a 5.5 on the 1-10 firmness scale, and offers the best balance of body conforming and sleeper support.

The AS3 is constructed with a memory foam comfort layer, a dual-layer polyfoam support core, and a cover made of polyester, Celliant fabric, and spandex.

Tempur-Pedic, in business since 1992, is a leading manufacturer of mattresses with memory foam components. The brand currently offers five individual models. For this comparison guide, we’ve selected the TEMPUR-Adapt mattress.

Two versions of the TEMPUR-Adapt are available, an all-foam design with a high-density polyfoam base and a hybrid model with pocketed coils encased in high-density foam. Each version of the mattress features memory foam comfort layers and ‘SmartClmate’ dual-layer cooling covers. The all-foam and hybrid TEMPUR-Adapt both have a ‘Medium’ (5) feel and an 11″ profile.

Please note: Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic both offer other mattresses in addition to the models listed above:

  • Amerisleep offers four other memory foam mattresses, each with a different firmness: the AS1 (7.5), AS2 (6.5), AS4 (4.5), and AS5 (3.5).
  • Tempur-Pedic also offers four other mattresses. Like the TEMPUR-Adapt, the TEMPUR-ProAdapt and TEMPUR-PRObreeze° are both available in all-foam and hybrid designs. The TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt and TEMPUR-LUXEbreeze° are strictly all-foam mattresses.

This guide will exclusively look at similarities and differences between the Amerisleep AS3 and Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Adapt. For more information on these other models, please visit our Amerisleep Mattress Reviews and Tempur-Pedic Mattress Reviews pages.

The AS3 and TEMPUR-Adapt share several similarities, including a ‘Medium’ feel that falls between 5 and 6 on the 1-10 firmness scale, a memory foam comfort layer that conforms closely, and a cover made of cooling fabric. However, there are also some notable differences between these two beds.

Our guide will compare the AS3 and TEMPUR-Adapt in terms of construction, pricing, and performance. We’ll also look at each brand’s sleep trial, warranty, and delivery policies.

Sleep Position Ratings

Amerisleep AS3

The AS3 is ‘Medium’ (5.5), and provides a balance of close conforming and well-reinforced sleeper support. This makes the mattress ideal for sleepers weighing between 130 and 230 pounds, as well as lighter or heavier individuals who like the ‘Medium’ feel.

Side sleepers may also enjoy the AS3, which conforms closely enough to help align the spine and alleviate pressure points that often result from this position. The AS3 provides great motion isolation and does not make any noise when bearing weight. It also sleeps much cooler than the average all-foam mattess due to the Celliant fabric in its cover.

TEMPUR-Adapt

Primarily due to its ‘Medium’ (5) feel, the TEMPUR-Adapt has earned the most positive ratings from sleepers in the average weight group (130 to 230 pounds). The mattress conforms closely without sagging or losing support, making it a good choice for back and stomach sleepers.

The memory foam also cushions the hips and shoulders, which helps improve spinal alignment for side sleepers. Those who weigh less than 130 pounds or more than 230 pounds may also find the bed suitable, depending on their comfort preferences.

Mattress Construction

Now let’s take a look at how these mattresses are made. The next table lists firmness, thickness, and composition specs for the Amerisleep AS3 and Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Adapt beds. Please note that Tempur-Pedic does not disclose certain specifications for mattresses, including individual layer thicknesses or foam densities.

Specification Amerisleep AS3 Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Adapt (Foam) Tempur-Pedic TEMPUR-Adapt (Hybrid)
Firmness ‘Medium’ (5.5) ‘Medium’ (5) ‘Medium’ (5)
Thickness 12″ 11″ 11″
Weight (Queen) 88 lbs. 79 lbs. 96 lbs.
Support Core Components 2″ 1.65 PCF Polyfoam
7″ 1.8 PCF HD Polyfoam
HD Polyfoam Pocketed Coils with HD Foam Encasement
Comfort Layer Components 3″ 4 PCF Memory Foam Memory Foam Memory Foam
Cover Composition Polyester, Celliant Fabric, and Spandex Dual Layer ‘SmartClimate’ Cover Dual Layer ‘SmartClimate’ Cover

How Are Amerisleep AS3 Mattresses Built?

The AS3 from Amerisleep is constructed with a 3-inch memory foam comfort layer with a density of 4 PCF. The material offers a ‘Medium’ feel and close conforming, which can improve spinal alignment for sleepers and alleviate pressure points throughout their bodies.

The mattress also has a stretchy cover made from a blend of polyester and Celliant fabric, which provides good temperature neutrality by absorbing less body heat and maintaining a cool surface.

The AS3’s support core measures 9 inches thick, consisting of a 2-inch transitional polyfoam layer and a 7-inch high-density polyfoam base layer. This relatively thick core reinforces the bed very well, resulting in better sleeper and edge support than many of the AS3’s all-foam competitors.

However, this support core also makes the mattress heavier than average – it weighs 88 pounds in a Queen-size, making it difficult for many owners to lift and rotate as recommended.

How Are Tempur-Pedic Mattresses Built?

The all-foam TEMPUR-Adapt is constructed with two primary layers, a comfort layer of memory foam and a support core of high-density polyfoam. The bed offers a ‘Medium’ feel and close conforming to the sleeper’s body.

It also has a two-layer SmartClimate cover made from cooling fabric. As a result, the all-foam TEMPUR-Adapt and AS3 (with its Celliant cover) offer comparable levels of temperature neutrality. The bed has an 11-inch profile, making it slightly thicker than average.

The hybrid TEMPUR-Adapt shares many similarities with its all-foam counterpart, including cover and comfort layer composition, thickness profile, and firmness setting. The key difference lies in its pocketed coil support core, which makes the hybrid TEMPUR-Adapt more responsive than the foam version. It also sleeps even cooler, thanks to consistent air flow through the coil layer.
