Amerisleep vs. Tempur-Pedic Mattress Comparison

Amerisleep was founded in 2007, and today offers memory foam mattresses. Their current lineup is comprised of five individual models, all of which have undergone name changes in recent years: The AS1 (formerly the Americana), the AS2 (formerly the Revere), the AS3 (formerly the Liberty), the AS4 (formerly the Colonial), and the AS5 (formerly the Independence); these mattresses may be sold at retail locations under their previous names. Although specifications vary, all five models are designed with memory foam comfort layers and polyfoam support cores.

Tempur-Pedic, Inc. has been in business since 1992, and the company merged with the Sealy Corporation in 2012; both brands remain separate entities. Tempur-Pedic currently offers a total of 16 mattress models sold as part of three collections. The Cloud and Contour collections feature mattresses with memory foam comfort layers and polyfoam support cores, and the Flex collection features hybrid mattresses with memory foam comfort systems and pocketed coil support cores.

Mattress Performance Comparison

The next table looks at mattress performance factors such as durability, pressure relief, motion isolation, and noise and odor potential. All ratings are generated from authentic customer experiences with Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic.

Category Criteria Amerisleep Rating Tempur-Pedic Rating What Users Say
Customer Satisfaction Based on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic mattresses. 82% (AS3)
75% (AS5)
73% (AS4)
71% (AS1)
69% (AS2)
77% (Flex)
74% (Contour)
71% (Cloud)
Tempur-Pedic mattresses have earned comparable ratings to most of Amerisleep’s lineup, but the AS3 has received the highest rating among all current models from both brands.
Durability The average mattress will perform for at least seven years before it needs to be replaced Fair (All models) Excellent (Flex)
Very Good (Cloud and Contour)
Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses and hybrids typically have relatively long lifespans compared to other models with similar designs. Amerisleep mattresses are more in line with industry averages in terms of durability.
Motion Isolation Foam-based mattresses are designed to minimize motion and isolate it from other areas of the sleep surface, which can cut down on nighttime disruptions. Very Good (All models) Very Good (Cloud and Contour)
Good (Flex)
Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses absorb and minimize motion transfer to a significant extent; Tempur-Pedic hybrids do not isolate motion as much.
Sex Foam-based mattresses are less responsive by design, and may not be as suitable for sex as innerspring or hybrid models. Fair (AS3, AS4, AS5)
Good (AS1, AS2)
Very Good (Flex)
Fair (Cloud and Contour)
The firmer AS1 and AS2 mattresses are more responsive and better for sex compared to the other three Amerisleep models, according to owners. The Flex hybrids from Tempur-Pedic are highly responsive, but the Cloud and Contour models may not be suitable for some couples.
Conforming Foam-based mattresses conform closely to sleeper’s bodies, which can help align the spine, target pressure points, and alleviate back pain Good (AS1, AS2)
Very Good (AS3, AS4, AS5)

 

Very Good (Cloud and Contour)
Good (Flex)
Amerisleep’s three softest mattresses conform closer and alleviate more pressure than the AS1 or AS2. The same is true of Tempur-Pedic’s memory foam mattresses compared to the hybrids in the Flex collection.
Temperature Neutrality Foam retains more body heat than other materials, and foam mattress owners often ‘sleep hot’ as a result. Fair (All models) Good (Flex)
Fair (Cloud and Contour)
Our feedback indicates that Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses tend to sleep hot, but Flex collection hybrids sleep somewhat cooler.
Off-gassing Some mattresses emit particles when they are unpackaged, accompanied by unpleasant ‘off-gassing’ smells that can last for days. Good (All models) Fair (Flex)
Poor (Cloud and Contour)
Off-gassing is a chief complaint among Cloud and Contour collection mattress owners, and Tempur-Pedic’s hybrids also produce some odor. The odor potential for Amerisleep mattresses is lower by comparison.
Edge Support Because of their construction, foam-based mattresses often provide little to no edge support and may sink prematurely in areas of the bed where people tend to sit. Poor (All models) Very Good (Flex)
Poor (Cloud and Contour)
Like most memory foam mattresses, Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic Cloud and Contour models provide little to no edge support. Hybrids in the Flex collection are much sturdier, and have received fewer sinkage complaints.
Noise Foam-based mattresses create little to no noise, due to their lack of springs, coils, and other metal components Excellent (All models) Excellent (Cloud and Contour)
Good (Flex)
The hybrids in the Flex collection produce some squeaking sounds, but Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattresses are all virtually silent when bearing weight.
Ease of Moving and Rotating All mattresses are relatively heavy when it comes to moving and rotating, but some are heavier and more unwieldy than others.   Fair (All models) Fair (all models) Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic mattresses are all heavier than the average mattress, making them relatively difficult to move.

When buying a new mattress, shoppers should take their body weight and preferred sleep position into account, as both of these factors can affect overall comfort and support. The next table compares Amerisleep and Tempur-Pedic mattresses based on these two criteria.
