The Joys of Owning an Electric Blanket
One of the best purchases I ever made was to buy an Electric Blanket
for my bed!
With the dark nights, autumnal chills and winter snaps rapidly
approaching, I get a warm sense of anticipation knowing I am able to
snuggle down into my bed, and have instant warmth generated from
my treasured Electric Blanket.
Electric Blankets come in 4 separate sizes designed to fit any size of
bed, single, double, king size and super king size.
The way Electric Blankets work 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
Electric 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
Electric 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 find Electric Blankets will save you 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 Electric Blanket is that it is of
