Troubleshooting My New Electric Blanket

At Comfort House, not a week goes by in Fall and Winter months without a customer who has just received their first electric blanket or heated mattress pad, or are replacing a much older one, contacting us to advise it doesn't work.

We start by asking what the trouble is and the response is normally it doesn't get hot.  When we ask if they've used it to sleep, they say no.  It has only been removed from the package, layed out on their bed, plugged in, and turned on.  If all one does is plug it in, turn it on, and feel it for warmth, we understand the cause for concern.
One of many electric blankets available at Comfort House.

What many don't realize is that modern heated blankets and electric mattress pads do not feel hot to the touch. For a blanket, they will be warm when you are underneath them and for a mattress pad they will be warm when you lie on top of them but they won't be hot to the touch. No troubleshooting is needed and the product is working just as designed.  Have a cozy night.
