With the dark nights, autumnal chills and winter snaps rapidly approaching, one gets a warm sense of anticipation knowing to snuggle down into bed, and have instant warmth generated from my treasured Electric Blanket. It comes in 4 separate sizes designed to fit any size of bed, single, double, king size and super king size. The way it works is that they provide warmth by integrating an internal electrical heating device. The Blanket is used over your top bed sheet and you can control the amount of heat that is generated by using the temperature control buttons. The double Blankets have a choice of single or dual control, with the king size and super king size ones all having dual control. The great advantage of the dual controls are that by having controls at each side of the Blanket, you can control the temperature at each side of the bed, giving each of you the right amount of heat for your side of the bed!
If you are concerned about the safety issues with an Electric Blanket then don’t be! All quality Electric Blankets now operate on a much lower voltage, normally around only 24 volts, as opposed to the older models that used to require between 110-240 volts. The modern day Blanket contains an overheat protection safety feature that will automatically turn off the Blanket if it becomes too hot. The newer quality models also come with rheostats to measure the total heat generated not only by the Blanket, but also by human body heat. You will money on heating Bills as they require little electricity to operate and provide centralised heating quickly, without you having to heat up the rest of the room or the rest of the house! An often overlooked advantage of the Blanket is that it is of course portable. You can virtually use it anywhere in the house! If you wish to watch a movie downstairs on the sofa and would like to save a few £’s on the central heating bills, then consider investing in a second Electric Blanket!
The elderly or wheelchair- bound individuals also find them an invaluable comfort, as they can help ward off chills and give them an extra degree of warmth that able bodied people take for granted. Many Nursing Homes and Residential Homes purchase Blankets for their residents just for this reason alone. The most popular selling versions of the quality Blankets tend to be the reputable brands such as Morphy Richards, Serenity, Bliss, Dreamland and Tranquillity. There are more brands around, but as these tend to be the market leaders, then hundreds of thousands of people surely cannot be wrong! Quite astonishingly, the remarkable growth in the Electric Blankets market has also led to some spin-off products entering the market, such as Heat Pads and Foot Warmers. These are obviously cheaper than the full Blankets, and are designed to concentrate heat in one particular area of the body and tend to be used to relieve aliments for certain parts of the body. Consider investing in an Electric Blanket and you will find this is one of the best autumn/winter purchases you will ever make. Once tried, you will never be without one!
