What's New in Electric Blankets and Heated Mattress Pads
Date:11/15/2007

NEWARK, N.J., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- You'll never have to get into a cold bed again with an electric blanket or mattress pad. Just try not to get too heated up by all of the choices available.

"With different fabrics, controls, wiring, and individual customization, there are more options to choose from than ever before," according to Jeffrey Gornstein, President of online retailer Comfort House (http://www.comforthouse.com). Gornstein evaluates dozens of new electric blankets and mattress pads every year.

Electric blankets are available in acrylic, polyester, and cotton blends. Microfiber, microplush, and micromink are just some of the names used to market the different blends. Electric blankets can also be found in traditional type weaves, such as herringbone or box stitch.

Heated mattress pads are produced in polyester, cotton, or a blend thereof. The most luxurious ones have lofty quilted tops like traditional mattress pads. This season has even seen the introduction of the world's first waterproof heated mattress pad.

Electric bedding controls range from the simple with manual dial up to the sophisticated with LCD display and interchangeable cover plate to match your home decor. Heat settings vary by control from 5 to 20 adjustment points, and most include a timer with auto-off function. There's even a low voltage control that meets UL standards for non-hazardous voltage.

Wiring in heated bedding runs anywhere from 3/16" diameter to so thin that they are virtually unnoticeable. Many products have the wires closer together at the foot end than they are at the top to help you stay comfortable all over.

The biggest innovation this season is the zoned heated mattress pad. Queen and king sizes have been available for years with two controls for independent temperature settings on each side of the bed. Now each of those sides can be separated into three zones for head/shoulders, mid-section, and legs. If you like your legs really warm, or only your upper body warm, then this is the mattress pad for you.

Between the luxurious nature of today's heated bedding, thin wire technology, and truly customized comfort, you may just want to use your electric blanket or mattress pad all year round.
