Heated blankets have become a very popular bedtime accessory that can help keep you warm and comfortable on cold nights. If you are considering purchasing a heating blanket, make sure you understand all the pros and cons of using one before making the investment.
Just like any electrical appliance, heated blankets can cause fires. Leaving them on for long periods of time can increase the chances of something happening.
Fortunately, newer blankets usually have an automatic shut-off mechanism to prevent them from overheating. But you should be careful to make sure you don't accidentally turn on a heated blanket when you're not using it or going to sleep.
One of the disadvantages of heated blankets is that they are not washable. The wiring may cause problems if it is placed in water, or the blanket may be rendered useless through the wash cycle. You can avoid this problem by placing a removable cover over the blanket so you can wash the cover separately from the internal wiring.
Many pets will enjoy snuggling up in the warmth of a heated blanket, and using a blanket can actually help relax an agitated or excited animal, but you should be aware that a heated blanket does pose some risk to your furry friend if they decide to scratch or chew the blanket.
One of the benefits of heated blankets is that they are energy efficient. They can provide you with warmth without having to turn on the thermostat, especially in the winter.
They may not heat the entire room, but they do use enough energy to keep you warm at night. On top of that, many of them have an automatic shut-off feature so you don't have to worry about the blanket overheating after falling asleep or running around all night.
One known treatment for pain is heat. The heat generated by a heated blanket helps reduce muscle tightness and decreases cramping. Although heated blankets do not relieve major pain, they can promote blood flow in the body, which can help relieve some minor aches, pains or cramps.
Another reason you should use heated blankets is that they can create a better quality of sleep. Heated blankets maintain a consistent temperature, so your sleep cycle is not disturbed.
