I grew up just south of Stanthorpe, and although it’s a beautiful place, and I fully recommend a visit there, let me tell you, in Winter it can get quite cold!
I found myself some wussy little kid (now I’m a wussy adult) and although I don’t mind the weather being cold, Personally, i don’t like being cold. And So I had an electrical blanket. Sometimes I’d “forget” to change them back, and yet be toasty warm and unwilling to put my toes out into the -5 mornings…
So I be aware of appeal of an electric blanket, and how nice it is actually for something different to get keeping you warm on those quite chilly nights. However, it isn’t really good for you.
The most important reason electric blankets aren’t good for you will be the obvious one: it’s a fire risk. Because they’re folded / rolled up half the entire year, and also on a bed with bodies lying at the top and obtaining wrinkled for area of the year, the wiring can be used within fair level of stress. As we grow older, the insulation around the wires could become brittle or broken, which may result in shocks to the sleeper, or short-circuits and potential fires.
The second best way to minimise probability of fires or shocks from http://abestpro.com/best-electric-blankets/ is to get it checked every year, before you use it, by way of a qualified electrician. She or he will examine the visible wiring and connections, and test the voltage and current, that can indicate whether there’s a quick circuit, and give you advice accordingly. If in ANY doubt, throw it out!!
The following primary reason you need to reduce electric blanket use is because it may produce a high electrical and electromagnetic field, by which you’re sleeping. Or looking to. The body communicates electrically, and high electrical or electromagnetic fields may cause insomnia, restless or non-restful sleep, that “jumping” feeling you sometimes be in muscles, anxiety and sometimes nightmares.
Needless to say, the second easy reduce these risks is always to switch off the electrical blanket before getting in bed, or otherwise within five minutes of obtaining in. This could also prevent b1ankets in the midst of the evening in a hot sweat… something I have done many times as a forgetful child!
You’ll note I’ve said these choices are second best. That’s because the most suitable choice is obviously never to work with an electric blanket in any way.
What other choices are there? Well, there’s always that lovely standby, the water bottle. They are awesome, cheap, you will get really cute and cosy covers to them, and so they hold the added bonus which you can use them as a COLD water bottle in summer.
