Innerspring mattresses have the tendency to sag or become lumpy. However, memory foam mattresses can be quite affordable as well and can give you more comfort than the traditional steel coils and foam of innerspring mattresses.
An inflatable mattress is not known for the support it provides. While it might be okay to sleep on once in a while, long-term use could lead to back pain and stiffness. Without adequate support, your spine will be out of alignment, and so you won’t have a restorative sleep.
What is this? An air bed should last for two years with constant use and up to eight years with occasional use.
So, what is the answer to the question “Should you be sleeping on an air bed every night?” If you keep the air bed inflated to a good level to provide proper support, and you maintain the room temperature during the night at the same level as when the mattress was inflated, then you should have no issues.
Memory foam is usually known to be more durable because the lack of coils reduces the risk of sagging. Spring mattresses may not be as durable as memory foam because the springs and coils may start poking and sagging due to extended use.

Comfortable and Relaxing
Many people find waterbeds to be more comfortable than traditional mattresses. The sloshing of the water inside the bladder is reminiscent of waves lapping at the beach, which is often considered to be a relaxing sound.
Constantly deflating and re-inflating your air mattress puts unnecessary tension on the seams. If you are blowing up the mattress for a houseguest who is staying for several days, for example, leave the mattress inflated over the course of the stay instead of inflating and deflating it daily.
Air mattresses will naturally lose air over time, and this can be accelerated by temperature changes and other factors. Before you begin trying to locate the source of the leak, fully inflate your air mattress. Then, lay on it for a few minutes, and see if it begins deflating.
