Popular mattress company Serta recently re-designed their iComfort collection of beds. In addition to a whole new look, the mattresses feature new advanced cooling technology and come in both memory foam and hybrid versions.

Every iComfort Hybrid mattress features a combination of foams, including an exclusive gel memory foam and an innerspring support system with individually wrapped coils for maximum comfort.

One quick thing we do want to note is that the model names, pricing, and availability may vary depending on which authorized Serta retailer you are shopping at.

Here is everything you need to know about each of the new models in the Serta iComfort Hybrid 2018 Collection.

Who makes Serta iComfort mattresses?

Serta iComfort mattresses are made by Serta, a company that is currently one of the top mattress manufacturers in the United States. Serta debuted the Perfect Sleeper® mattress in 1931, then introduced the Serta® brand name two years later.

Serta is based in Hoffman Estates, Illinois.

What types of beds/frames do they work with?

Your bed frame choice may be influenced by the Serta warranty conditions.

According to the Serta website, when using Queen and King-size mattresses, you must use a bed frame “with a center support that extends to the floor in order to not void the warranty.” Furthermore, “You may use a solid bed platform, however, it must have a center support that extends to the floor in order to not void the warranty.”

If you purchase and use a Serta adjustable frame, ensure that you are using a mattress that was specifically designed to be used with an adjustable base.

Generally speaking, memory foam mattresses work best with a very solid foundation, like a box spring or solid bed frame.

If you have a bed frame with slats, make sure these slats are very close together. If the slats are too far apart from one another, the memory foam mattress may “sag” through these slats.

What materials and components are standard in the hybrid models?

Each mattress in the hybrid collection contains FireBlocker® Fiber, which the Serta website describes as “a proprietary blend of natural and synthetic fibers that help isolate the impact of a fire and limit its spread.”

Every model also contains TempActiv™ Gel Memory Foam, which is a temperature-regulating memory foam. They also feature a support layer of Serta® Hybrid Coil Support System Firm with Best Edge® Foam Encasement.

What Is TempActiv™ Gel Memory Foam?

Here is how Serta describes their temperature-regulating foam:

This gel memory foam is infused with millions of TempActivtemperature-regulating gel beads and additional gel for body support. This helps the mattress capture, store and ultimately dissipate heat away from the sleep surface while also helping to properly support every curve of your body.

Do they come with a box spring included?

This depends on where you purchase your mattress. On the Serta website, you can buy the mattresses alone, or you can also purchase a 9” standard foundation or a low profile 6” standard foundation. Foundation prices vary depending on the size of the mattress, and whether you want a split foundation or not.

Who might want a Serta iComfort Hybrid bed?

  • People interested in a hybrid mattress. Hybrid mattresses contain innerspring coils and memory foam, giving you “the best of both worlds.”
  • People who sleep with a partner. There are several models which makes it easier to find the right comfort level for two people. In addition, the mix of memory foam and a coil system will help distribute weight and will most likely provide good motion isolation. 
  • People who want temperature regulating technology. Every mattress contains TempActiv™ Gel Memory Foam, which consists of temperature-regulating gel beads and additional gel for body support. The coil system will also promote airflow within the mattress. 

Who might not want a Serta iComfort Hybrid bed?

  • People on a budget. Mattresses start at $1,099 for a Queen. With so many mattresses, including hybrid mattresses, on the market today there is really something for everyone’s budget, including people who are looking for a bed under $1,000.
  • People who want a pure memory foam mattress/pure innerspring mattress. The hybrid model may not be ideal for people who want a mattress made entirely of memory foam or completely innerspring. While these models will differ in their layers, they will all highlight the features of both foam and innerspring mattresses. 

Common Praise & Complaints

At the time this overview was published, the iComfort Hybrid line was very new. There are no reviews yet available on their website or elsewhere online, making it hard to know what people are saying about the beds quite yet.

Once we are able to learn more about how people like the mattress, we’ll put the top comments on here for what people like and didn’t like about the hybrid line.

120-Day in-home trial

The full details on the in-home trial program are available on the Serta website:

“Applies to iComfort and iSeries mattresses and standard foundations only; see the Serta Comfort Assurance Policy for information on all other Serta mattresses. Does not apply to bed frames or adjustable foundations (such as the Serta® Motion Perfect®, Motion Custom™ or Motion Essentials™ adjustable foundations).

We want you to make your iComfort or iSeries Sleep System by Serta purchase with complete confidence. We know that even after making a careful selection, sometimes people may need a different level of comfort. That is why your iComfort or iSeries mattress and standard foundation purchase is backed by our 120 Day In-Home Trial Policy.

Outlined below is how the 120 Day In-Home Trial works:

1. Buy an iComfort or iSeries mattress or mattress/standard foundation set from us either by website or phone.

2. Sleep on the mattress for a minimum of 30 nights get used to your new mattress, as it takes several weeks for your body to adjust to a new (or any different) mattress. Once your body has adjusted to the comfort and support of your new mattress, you will know for sure whether or not you have made the right selection.

3. If you are not happy for any reason within the first 120 days (and after the first 30 nights sleeping on the mattress) call our Customer Service staff 1-888-919-3174 and we will answer any questions you might have.

4. If you are still not satisfied with your iComfort you may either select another iComfort mattress (shipping charges will apply) or return your mattress.

5. If you wish to return your mattress or mattress set after 30 days, we will authorize the return for up to 120 days after delivery. All you have to pay is a 15% return and disposal fee plus $200 for shipping and handling, which will be deducted from the amount credited back to the credit card used to make the purchase. We will cover all other expenses.

6. There is a limit of one trial offer per each consumer.

7. This program excludes all Serta adjustable foundations, iComfort® pillows or any other iComfort® or Serta® accessories. Adjustable foundation sales are final.

8. Serta will not accept or credit returns of any product that is stained or otherwise damaged in a way that would violate the terms of our warranty.”

Warranty Details

Each Serta mattress comes with a “law tag” listing a warranty code.

There are also requirements regarding bedframes.

On Queen and King-size mattresses, you need a bed frame with a center support that extends to the floor in order to not void the warranty.

You may use a solid bed platform, however, it must have a center support that extends to the floor in order to not void the warranty. And if you have a Serta adjustable frame, make sure the mattress you put on it was designed to be used with an adjustable base.

Other things to note:

According to the website, “Stains, soiling, fluid penetration or other signs of abuse may invalidate the warranty.”
Never take the law tag off your mattress, as that may void the warranty also.
