Go to bed and find the ideal temperature to fall asleep and rest in the best way: this is what an electric blanket or and heated throw does: therefore when the summer is over, and before turning on the heating, an electric blanket can relieve the first seasonal cold.
Don't be taken by surprise when the coldest season arrives, and take advantage of the offers available on Klarstein, for a wide range of thermal blankets and heated throws available in various colours, to best suit the decor of your home.
A thermal blanket is an extremely versatile product: you can use it in bed instead of the standard throw or duvet, or while lying on the sofa, even while travelling. There are, in fact, battery-powered models which operate at 12 volts and can also be powered by the car's cigarette lighter socket.
The features that most affect the price of electric blankets and throws are materials and models. The range is extensive, from polyester to cotton, from wool up to mixed fabrics. Wool products are the most expensive and in general, we advise to choose heating blankets made with natural materials because they guarantee substantially better breathability. However, most of the thermal blankets are made of synthetic fabrics, in which case it’s better to go for the softest possible material to make the most of your purchase. If you suffer from an allergy, it is preferable to choose a product made of hypoallergenic or antibacterial fabrics. The latter, if certified by the Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 guarantee seal, prevent the deposit of mites and dust generated by electromagnetic fields.
The basic principle for electric blankets or heating pads is the resistance of an electrical wire; in the case of a double electric blanket, each half has its electric wire with its own control.
Operation is simple but requires technological components that can manage the functions featured by the latest generation heated blankets, such as protection from excessive heating, variable power, automatic switch-off, etc.: this explains the considerable differences in price and reliability between the models of the various brands.
Electric blankets and heating pads can be hand-washed, or machine washed, depending on the model and the material. It is always a good idea to read the instruction manual of each model carefully to understand how they can be washed safely, making sure the circuits and the fabric are not damaged. Spending a few minutes to read the instruction manual will let you know some unknown function or learn something to avoid problems with the new product.
The benefits of using a thermal blanket are primarily economic, practical and for your health. By heating the bed with an electric blanket or throw, you can lower the room temperature and save on heating costs while enjoying the warmth under the blankets. The same is also true in other rooms in the house, for example in the sofa in front of the TV: with a warming blanket you can keep yourself warm even when the heating is off.
Modern bed warmers, even the cheapest ones, nowadays ha features that make them practical, easy to use and above all, safe: among them, a timer for automatic switch-off, silent controls, preheating functions, overheating protection, the choice of different materials and colours, washable, warranty and dual control for king-size models. There are many good reasons to use an electric blanket, which will allow you to:
Modern thermal blankets are very reliable: if you take trivial and straightforward precautions, they are no more dangerous than any other household appliance. All brands of bed warmers provide recommendations for the safe use of their product, but general indications can be given as follows:
