Use an electric
well, and save.
On a cold winter evening, jumping into a warm cosy bed is one of life's luxuries. One of the most cost-effective ways to heat your bed can be to use an electric blanket.
According to Choice magazine, an electric blanket can cost as little as $20 per season calculated for a single bed, including preheating and leaving it on all night every night for three months – making it a far more cost-effective option than other types of home heating.
It is recommended that electric blankets are placed under the fitted sheet to mattress protector; choose one with a fitted skirt that is less likely to slip around at night, and look for models with automatic timers which heat your bed before you are ready to jump in for maximum convenience.
Aside from keeping you cosy at night, studies have shown the soothing heat from electric blankets can help with arthritis, sciatica and other aches and pains; they can help you to sleep more soundly by maintaining a consistent temperature throughout the night and have been scientifically proven to boost mood!
