Frequently Asked Questions

Buying a mattress is an important decision. Here are some of the questions that are often asked by consumers. Please feel free to call with your own questions.

  1. Why should I buy a mattress from Comfort Sleep Systems?

    Comfort. Pure and simple. While nothing compares to the deep comfort of our latex mattresses, you'll find even our base model mattresses are more comfortable than competitor's models at similar price points. Dollar for dollar we give you more value.

  2. Do you take away the old mattress?

    We offer delivery and removal service statewide in Connecticut. 

  3. Do I need to buy a box spring or foundation?

    The short answer is yes, but it depends on the style of the bed frame you plan to use. Platform beds are designed to hold just a mattress. Most conventional beds require a mattress and foundation. The main thing is you want to make sure you're getting proper support. If your bed requires, it's worth the extra money to ensure you're getting a quality foundation.

  4. Are latex mattresses hot?

    No. Many people often confuse latex with memory foam and they are nothing alike. Memory foam is the product that most people find to hold body heat - they call it "Tempur" because it is temperature sensitive foam and molds to the heat of your body. Latex foam conforms naturally without making you sweat.

  5. Should I get new pillows with my new sleep set?

    Pillows will definitely enhance your overall sleep experience by giving the needed support to your neck and shoulders.

  6. How long should a mattress last?

    Mattresses wear out on different timetables. This is due to numerous factors such as how the mattress was used (guest room, master bedroom, doubled as a trampoline for the kids), whether it was cared for properly and/or the quality of the mattress itself. Other important considerations are how personal comfort levels or a person's lifestyle and body may have changed over the years. We encourage you to think about these things and ask yourself the following questions:

    • Are you sleeping better or worse than you did a year ago?
    • Are you waking up feeling stiff and sore?
    • Does your mattress have visible signs of wear and tear?
    • Would a new mattress improve your sleep?

    If the answer is "yes" to any of these questions, then it's time to consider purchasing a new mattress.
