What is a chili pad:

A chili pad is made for people who struggle to sleep when it is too hot, especially on mattresses that are made with heat retaining material such as memory foam. If you also face this problem while sleeping, a chili pad is best for you.
A chili pad is designed to prevent overheating throughout the night for better sleep. The chili pad has integrated water tubes. These water tubes are connected to a control unit, and you can easily control the temperature of the mattress by using a remote. These mattresses came in different sizes, such as queen bed, king bed, and California king size bed. The best thing about this chili pad mattress is that you can set the different temperatures on each side of the bed, so no one has to compromise.

Can we clean chili pad?

Yes, you can clean the chili pad easily. You can clean the pad and its cover in cold water on the gentle cycle and then leave it to get dry. As it can be clean, we are going to know how to clean chili pad.

When should you clean a chili pad?

Cleaning a chili pad does not have to be done on a regular basis. However, cleaning your chili pad every 2 to 3 months, or after 60 to 100 uses, is normally suggested. To clean the chili pad, hand wash it in warm water with a light detergent or wash it on the gentle cycle in the washing machine.

These are some steps you can follow to get the solution of how to clean chili pad.
The mattress pads can be washed in a front-loading washing machine. Please attach the extension tail with a rubber band or other ways to avoid it flailing during the spin cycle; this will assist in ensuring that the male connector does not suffer any integrity issues during the washing process. After fastening the tail, simply run your washing machine on a moderate cycle (cold water only; I recommend adding a little OxyClean) and then air dry (again, no heat). We do recommend that you wash your pad on the same schedule as you clean your control unit.

Steps to clean Control Unit:

Remove and clean the dust screen at the intake vent under the handle on a regular basis.
Blow dust and debris out of the intake vent under the handle with compressed air (or something similar).
To keep the circulation system clean, pour one cap full of hydrogen peroxide into the reservoir on a regular basis. Procedure: Preheat the oven to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remove the reservoir top and fill the reservoir with hydrogen peroxide. THE RESERVOIR CAP SHOULD BE REMOVED.
To clean the system, the HP will react with dirt or other foreign particles. Replace the cap, adjust the temperature to your ideal sleep temperature, and enjoy once the reaction has stopped (bubbles have stopped forming).

IMPORTANT: If you have already added another chemical to your water reservoir (such as vinegar), make sure to rinse it out before adding hydrogen peroxide.

Important tips to clean chili pad:

These are some important tips on how to clean chili pad.
Make sure there is enough ventilation space around the control unit. Because the Control unit depends on fresh air to cool the electronics, enough fresh air is required for optimal performance and system durability. On both sides, a clearance of 24 inches is recommended.
Inspect the connection tubes on a regular basis to ensure there are no twists or blockages preventing free water flow through your system.

The best temperature to sleep:

The temperature in which you sleep the deepest and longest, allowing your body to naturally recover and feel amazing. This varies from person to person and often changes by night. According to sleep studies, the ideal sleep temperature for good rest and recovery is 60-68 degrees Fahrenheit. However, it takes around 2-3 weeks to discover that perfect balance that works for you, and your temperature will change as the season change.

How to connect the remote with the chili control unit?

Only connect one unit and one remote at a time with dual-zone systems. Make sure the second unit and remote are disconnected and battery-free.
Connect One remote and one unit at a time. Turn off and unplug your control unit for 5 seconds.
After plugging in your control unit, press and hold the “down” button on the control panel until a digital number shows on the display screen (The Down button needs to be pressed within 5 seconds of plugging in your control unit). For this step, turn off the Control Unit. If no digital number appears, continue steps 2 and 3.
Keep looking on a display screen of the control unit and wait for any digital number to appear. If the digital number appears, then turn ON the remote and keep pressing both the “UP” and “DOWN” button at the same time.
Keep pressing these two buttons until you see a temperature shown on the display screen with both “Fahrenheit” and “centigrade” (“F” and “C”).
Now, turn ON the control unit and change the temperature on the remote, then press enter button. You can hear a beep when your remote is connected successfully. Take a test of your remote and relax on your bed.

Is chili pad safe to use?

Yes, chili pad is safe to use because it is ETL listed, which is equal to UL testing. Different versions are also certified for usage in Europe, Australia, and Japan.

What is the weight limit of chili pad?

The Chili Pad and Chili Bed will work with a weight range of up to 500 pounds per zone. The control unit may not reach the maximum temperature range of 46°F (8°C) to 118°F (48°C) with higher weight ranges, but it will still give considerable cooling and heating benefits.

Temperature range of chili pad:

The temperature range of the chili pad depends on the environment and heat load. The control unit of the chili pad can heat up to 118 Fahrenheit (48C) and cool down to 46 Fahrenheit (8C).

Hot to drain the pad completely?

Now, you know how to clean chili pad, it is also important to know how to drain a pipe completely. It can be harder to get all of the water out of the tubing. If you don’t have the water release key that came with it, you should be able to drain most of it using the steps below.
Hang the pad vertically, if possible, with the connection tubes at the bottom.
Depress the “X” shaped parts inside the connecting end with two pens, pencils, or other similar tools to open the valves and enable the water to flow out.
If your pad has two connectors, repeat the process to drain both sides.

Durability of chili pad

The mattress pad is constructed of poly cotton fabric with a 150-thread count, polyester fill, and medical-grade silicone tubing. Because of its strength and durability, the silicone tubing used to circulate the water was chosen. It will not be punctured by animal claws or normal wear and tear.

Can I feel tubes in chili mattress?

Yes, the circulation of water in tubes can be felt with your fingertips if you look for them, but they cannot be felt while lying on the mattress. The silicone tubing is soft enough to provide a nice resting surface while still allowing water to flow freely.

Why use chili pad for the whole body when just my head sweats?

Although many customers believe their night time temperature issue is due to their head becoming too hot, the temperature build-up is actually all over the body and is only vented at the head. Excess sweating will stop when the entire body temperature is correctly regulated.

Which factors will increase the temperature of chili pad?

Ambient room temperature, the sleeper’s body heat, the type of sheets and comforter (Chili Pad works best with an insulating comforter or blanket over you while you sleep), having more than one tubing extension (we recommend only one extension per unit), and positioning the control unit to maximize sufficient air flow are all factors that increase the temperature of the pad on the bed. For effective air flow, the Chili Pad unit should have 24′′ inches of space on all four sides and the top.

Which water should we use in chili pad?

We strongly advise you to use distilled or filtered water. Water from the tap can be used, but it may cause dirt build-up. It’s easier to keep it clean using a capful of hydrogen peroxide.
