Using Sleep Number Foot Warming

Having your feet gently warmed before bed helps you fall asleep faster. We recommend setting up a smart bed routine for the most effortless experience. 


  • Allow 15-30 minutes for foot warming to heat up.
  • Blankets and a heavy comforter will help trap the heat.  
  • Avoid placing more than a mattress pad and fitted sheet over the top of the mattress. Additional layers may block the heat from transferring.
  • Control foot warming with the Sleep Number® app, remote or effortlessly with smart bed routines.

Set Up a Routine

  • With smart bed routines you can crawl into a bed that is ready to warm your feet. Read Using Routines to learn more.

Foot Warming Doesn't Get Warm at all

Things to try:

  1. Check to make sure your bed is plugged in. The power cord is located at the head of your bed.
  2. Try switching to a different screen in the Sleep Number app and returning to the smart bed tab.
  3. Make sure foot warming is connected to your bed. Check the gray or black cable under your bed next to your air hose connections located on both sides of the bed.
