Q: What is the
difference between an ElectroWarmth® bedwarmer and an electric blanket?
A: An electric blanket is used as a covering, the bedwarmer is used under
the bedding. You sleep ON it, not UNDER it. The bedwarmer attaches directly
to your mattress and is covered up by your normal bedding. ElectroWarmth®
bedwarmers are much more energy efficient than an electric blanket because
of the way they are used. Your covers hold in the heat that rises from
below. The heat from an electric blanket rises from above you and escapes
into the room.
Q: My home heating costs are
high, will this warmer cost me more for electricity?
A: No. In fact, with an ElectroWarmth® bedwarmer, you can turn down the heat
in your home during the night and still sleep comfortably. By turning down
the heat in your home, you will not only save on heating fuel costs, but
your furnace blower, refrigerator and freezer will also run less in a cooler
house. This will help reduce power costs.
Q: How do I know what size I
A: The model number of each warmer indicates its width.
For fitted bedwarmers, you need to match the warmer to your bed size in both width and
The warming pad can be narrower but not wider than your mattress.
Q: What do the bedwarmers look
A: The bedwarmers very much resemble a mattress pad. They are made of white
material, and are about 1/4-1/2 inch thick. The fitted models are like a
fitted sheet and have extra cloth at the head of the bed that allows the
warmer to cover the entire mattress, and has a skirt with elastic all around
the warmer to hold the warmer in place. The warmers are quilted around the
heating wires. This is done in such a way that you do not feel the wires
when you are laying on the warmer. The 12 volt models has several cloth
tabs sewn around its border with which you safety pin (pins are provided)
the warmer to your mattress.
Q: Are ElectroWarmth® bedwarmers
A: It is recommended that ElectroWarmth® bedwarmers be hand washed. They are
electrical devices that can be damaged in a washing machine. Since the
bedwarmers are used underneath your bed coverings, there is not much need to
clean them on a regular basis.
Q: Are they safe if something is
spilled on them (or a child wets the bed)?
A: Yes. The heating element wires within the bedwarmers are shielded. In the
case of bed wetting, there is also a cleanliness issue. We recommend
covering the bedwarmer with a rubber sheet that can be purchased at stores
such as Wal-Mart. The rubber sheet will help keep the bed warmer clean and
will reduce the need to clean it regularly.
Q: How does the bed warmer stay
in place under the covers?
A: T Model 12 volt Mattress Pad: Each bed warmer has a series of cloth tabs all around
the outer edges. A bag of large safety pins is supplied with which the
bed warmer is secured to the mattress using the tabs. This will help keep the
bedwarmer flat which will allow it to function properly for many years.
A: Fitted Model: The fitted bed warmer is very similar to a fitted sheet in
that it covers the entire mattress and is held in place using elastic all
around the skirt of the bed warmer.
Q: Can I use a bed warmer on an
A: Absolutely! The fitted models are recommended, and work very well. In
fact, customers using adjustable beds represent one of the largest
percentages of bed warmer users.
Q: Does the Comfort Control
temperature control make a clicking sound when you change the temperature
A: No. The temperature control is very quiet and transitions smoothly from
one temperature setting to another.
Q: What sort of warranty is
A: ElectroWarmth® bed warmers come with a full one year guarantee. If
anything goes wrong with the bed warmer during that first year, it will be
repaired or replaced as the factory deems necessary. After the year warranty
has expired, low-cost factory-direct service is available if it is ever
needed. ElectroWarmth® bed warmers are high quality products and have very
few problems. Some people have had the same bed warmer for 30 years without
need for maintenance.
Q: In my electric blanket, I can
feel the heating wires and they are uncomfortable to me. Are the heating
wires in an ElectroWarmth® bed warmer uncomfortable as well?
A: Absolutely Not! The heating wires used in ElectroWarmth® bed warmers are
quilted into the padding of the warmer in order to make them undetectable
when you are sleeping.
Q: What do you recommend for
young children or elderly people?
A: We recommend that the person using the bed warmer be able to adjust the
temperature control and be able to know what to do if they are too warm. We
do not recommend the bed warmer for children under the age of 5.
Q: I am a Massage Therapist, can
I use a bed warmer on my massage table?
A: Yes, the massage table warmer allows the therapist to lower the room
temperature for a cooler working environment, while keeping the client
comfortable and relaxed.
Q: I have a large mattress
(Queen or King) and my partner likes to be cool and I like to be warm. Can
A: Absolutely! The larger models are available with dual Comfort Controls.
This allows each person to select the temperature they want.
Q: I am a truck driver and I
have to keep my engine idling while I sleep in order to stay warm, do you
have anything that I can use to stay warm without having to keep my engine
A: Yes! "T" model was designed with truck drivers in mind. The cord is 10
feet long which gives you plenty of length to reach from the cigarette
lighter socket to your bunk. This allows you to sleep comfortably without
having to idle your truck. The bed/bunk warmer will pay for itself in just a couple
days in fuel savings alone. You will also be cutting down on air pollution
from the exhaust fumes from your truck. The bunk warmers are in use all over
the United States by many trucking fleets.
