Keep toasty warm
with a hot water
Costing cents to fill, a hot water bottle is one of the most cost-effective ways to keep warm at night. Whether warming the bed in winter, keeping your toes toasty at night or snuggling up on the couch, hot water bottles can bring comfort on a cool winter evening.
Hot water bottles come in all shapes and sizes, and the type you choose will determine how long your hot water stays warm. Whether the traditional shape, a long, heated snake or novelty shapes like hearts and stars, each can help reduce your energy consumption.
Large hot water bottles over 1.5 litres store more hot water. They are expected to release heat over a longer period due to the ratio between the surface area and water capacity. Large hot water bottles can provide heat to a wider area of the body at a time, so can be preferred for people who enjoy soothing their lower back or snuggling the hot water bottle into their chest.
The two most common uses for hot water bottles are to rest in or close to your body or to use it to heat the bed before jumping in for sleep.
