There's nothing quite like sinking in to a warm and cosy bed after a long day, especially on cold winter nights. Electric blankets or sheets are fitted with a series of thin electrical wires that heat up your bed when they're plugged into your mains electricity supply - either before you retire to bed or throughout the night while you're sleeping.
Electric blankets are available for different sizes of beds, from single electric blankets through to king-sized and super king sized models, and come in two main types – fitted under blankets and over blankets. At Dalzell's we stock leading electric blanket brands Beurer and Morhpy Richards.
A Fitted under Electric Blanket is a popular choice as it heats the body from underneath and adds extra warmth to your bedding. Fitting to the bed like a normal elasticated fitted sheet, a Fitted Electric Blanket is convenient and easy to use. The Beurer Monogram Tranquility Dual Control Double Electric Underblanket features turbo boost for fast heat up, the Sleepsafe safety system, 6 heating systems with variable time control and is BEAB approved.
The Morphy Richards 75288 Dual Control King Size Heated Mattress Cover is made from an extra thick fleece material, and contains ultra-thin wires ensuring ultimate comfort. Costing from as little as 2p per night, this luxury electric blanket is a fully fitted mattress cover design that is incredibly easy to fit.
An Over Blanket warms you and your bed from the top. Many designs are now available with heat sensitive technology, adjusting to the temperature of the body and room while you sleep. The over blanket can either be placed on top of the bed, or for that added toasty feeling, inserted into a duvet cover.
Many of electric blankets now have the added convenience of being machine washable and tumble dry safe, ensuring your bed is kept fresh and clean. Luxury models also come with dual controls and added foot warmers for increased flexibility.
