In this Bed Jet Review, we’re going to talk about how the BedJet works, how it can cool OR heat you, and how partners can each pick their own temperature to make for a great night’s sleep.
Bed Jet Review
Full Disclosure: BedJet did send us one unit and comforter, and we paid for a 2nd unit on our own to try it out. I have issues sleeping, and here in AZ I miss having cool sheets, so I REALLY wanted to give it a try. Enough to plop down my own funds too for the full dual zone experience.
How does BedJet Work?
BedJet actually works just how we warm/cool patients in the hospital.
You flow warm or cool air (adjusted just how you like it) between your fitted and your flat sheet. Most people purchase the comforter with the Bed jet — that lays on top of you and the air flows within it. Like a down comforter, but instead of feathers, it’s air.
This video explains it pretty well:
BedJet Cooling Fan
The BedJet is not actually an air conditioning unit.
It’s taking the coolest air in your room (at the floor) and circulating it through your bed wicking moisture off your skin and helping to keep you cool.
I read that they recommend the room is at least 79 degrees — which is just about what we keep our A/C at night.
BedJet Heating Blanket
BedJet does heat the air and blows it through either your bed or the comforter. You get to pick just the temperature you want with either the remote or the app.
Which means when I want the bed to basically feel like fire when I get in it — I can make that happen.
And my husband just wants it a little warm — he can make that happen.
And we. stay. married. And yes — these are the fights we’ve had.
BedJet Dual vs BedJet Single
There are a few options when you go to the BedJet page.
You can get the BedJet Dual or the Bed Jet Single.
BOTH units can heat/cool a king or queen-sized bed.
BUT, if you want to have the option of picking your OWN temperature — you need to get the dual unit. A smart option might be to buy the single first — to see if you like it, and if you want your own — grab another unit (be aware that you’d need a new comforter too — so there is some risk in purchasing it this way).
With the Bed Jet Dual system — you get:
- 2 Bed Jet Units — each can be set to their own temperature
- 1 BedJet comforter — this is how the air flows into your bed — it is split down the middle so each person has their own climate!
If you both really seem to lik the same, or pretty similar temperatures, you could certainly just get one Bed Jet and it can work for the both of you.

BedJet V2 — what’s different?
I feel like they included some pretty great upgrades with V2 (you can find V1 here).
There is biorhythm sleep technology in V2. That means it gives you the temperature that YOU need to sleep well during the night.
When you go to sleep, your body temperature drops, and when it’s time to get-up, your temperature rises.
This happens through the app — where you can choose the temperature and the fan %. They have a suggested sleep cycle.
There is a complimentary aromatherapy kit included.
They’re basically like little sponges that you can put the scent of your choice on — and during the night the BedJet will blow that scent at you gently. Pretty cool idea.
If you have oils you think to calm you down — let me know — I’d like to try them out (because I am not a lavender fan).
Who is the BedJet Best for?
I think the BedJet would be awesome for:
- Pregnant women (keep in mind that the heating part comes with the same warnings as an electric blanket, so I wouldn’t recommend you heat your bed — but MOST pregnant women want it cooler)
- Postpartum women (they say this wicks away sweat really well!!
- Menopausal women — say goodbye to miserable night hot flashes!
- Couples who can’t agree on bedroom temperature
- Families who’d like to save more on their HVAC costs and only cool their bed vs the whole house (same for heat)
BedJet Review 2018
We’ve had our units for a few days.
We opted to use the dual jet system as my husband is almost ALWAYS hot and I will want it toastier in the winter than he does. I thought about getting just one unit., but for the extra $300 I just decided it was worth it to try. With the 60-day money back guarantee, we didn’t have much to lose — and a whole lot of happiness to gain. 🙂
Right now we are using it for cooling (although I see it AWESOME for cold winter beds).
It is not like sleeping with a sheet of ice.
BUT, it does make the bed considerably cooler. Especially at your feet (I have mine positioned at the end of my bed). The cooled air blows into the comforter and sort of blows it up (really high if you don’t have your sheet/comforter on top of it.
I think my favorite part was the cold feet. I always sleep with my feet outside the bed because I like cold feet when I sleep, and bed jet gave me that even with feet in the covers.
We do have a room that is the hottest room in the house, so it’s been REALLY nice to have it.
A couple of beefs — yes, it’s pricey. I certainly wouldn’t put this above feeding your family or going into debt. BUT, if you feel like your room is getting the short end of the stick temperature-wise (ours is also the coolest in the winter) I think it’s worth looking into.
The comforter is PRICEY. We want a second one so we can wash the first, but it’s $160 for another one — which seems a bit steep. The comforter IS made very well though, so I can see why it would be more expensive than an average sheet. But still…. I’m hopeful they’ll have a sale on them one of these days when we’ll purchase a 2nd one.
Here’s my video that shows it:
The price tag is a lot — you just need to ask yourself if you find the Bed Jet to be worth your money. Would you save on:
- A/C for the whole house, when you just need a cool bed
- Sleep — if you’re tossing and turning because you’re hot — BedJet could be the answer
- Relationship — it’s cheaper than a lawyer if you both like the house at different temperatures (be sure to get the dual zone if this is the case)
For us, we just decided it was worth it. I HATE being cold in bed, and I dread our summers — and the BedJet would mitigate the both of those. It makes a great gift, and I think you’ll really enjoy it!
