When it starts to get really cold outside, it’s only natural to want to stay as warm as possible while you’re inside. And while turning up the thermostat all night is expensive and not particularly energy efficient, plugging in one appliance is a much more effective way of staying warm at night. Say goodbye to wearing several layers to bed and waking up in the morning feeling like an icicle – warm your bones overnight with this amazing All Season Premium Heated Mattress Pad. There’ll be no more fighting over the covers and blankets when you and your partner have individual dual controllers to set the temperature for your own side of the bed.
Why a Heated Mattress Pad?
A common thought is that an electric blanket will be a cheaper and easier way to stay warm at night, however this really is not always the case. While a heated mattress pad may be a little more expensive, it will easily last for at least five years and will withstand multiple washes without succumbing to wear and tear, so ends up being much better value for money in the long run. It’s also so much more efficient than a blanket, as hot air rises from beneath you and stays trapped between the mattress below you and blanket above you, and so you are completely enveloped by the warmth. In contrast, hot air rises off an electric blanket too, and as a result about half of the heat generated is completely lost to the room. A heated mattress pad is also the safer option – provided it’s UL or ETL marked and complying with all safety regulations, as the pad is stretched out over the surface of the mattress, and so the heat always has a place to escape. Heated blankets can become bunched and rolled up, at which point the heat can’t leave, and they end up beginning to burn. So unless you stay perfectly still while asleep and know there is no chance of the blanket ending up wadded up, then the mattress is by far the safer option. Also, a blanket can be kind of heavy, which some people find uncomfortable, where the mattress pad feels like a normal mattress, and so doesn’t affect any part of your sleep experience aside from adding warmth. And while electric blankets may require specific washing and drying routines, a mattress pad maybe waterproof and stain resistant, which is much easier for anyone with pets, and can be thrown in the machine to be shed and dried like regular bedding, which can save you plenty of time and energy on household chores.

This would be a high quality mattress pad even if it didn’t heat anything up. While the Sunbeam All Season Premium Heated Mattress pad is more expensive than other options, it really does deliver on quality and comfort. The top is 100% cotton, and quilted for extra comfort.

In terms of the actual heat function, this mattress pad is great in multiple ways. First, there are ten heat settings, so you are sure to find the perfect temperature for you. There is also an extra pre heat feature, which means you can set your bed to start warming up before you get in, so there’s no lying in the cold waiting to warm up. And while you can pre-heat your bed, you can also control when the mattress switches off – while the automatic setting is after ten hours, you can change this to two, or six hours too, so you really do reduce the risk of overheating.

Once you find the heat setting that works for you, it really does stay at that setting.
