Buying A Made in USA Electric Blanket

Looking to buy an electric blanket made in USA? Then look no further because there is none to be found. The closest we come to heated bedding made in USA are heated mattress pads. A heated mattress pad, also known as an electric mattress pad, is a formidable competitor to a heated blanket. Their popularity has surged in recent years. Comfort House customers buy them 2 to 1 over blankets. In fact, the decision is not usually over which blanket to buy but rather should I buy a blanket or a mattress pad. ElectroWarmth Bed Warmer is made in USA. Our ElectroWarmth made in USA heated mattress pad is available in all sizes including the otherwise impossible to find heated bedding sizes of split queen, split king, king xl, and truck mattress. So you can stop your search for a made in USA blanket and consider a heated mattress pad instead. By Jeffrey Gornstein .

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 ju

Butterflies For Food & Profit

Last year, during a expedition to inner most Africa, Jeffrey Gornstein, founder of Comfort House® discovered a new, unknown species of mammoth butterfly that has since been named Lepidopterist Comforteous. This species grows to a body length of almost two feet in only 60 days. Their wing span is almost 5 feet! These butterflies provide up to 6 lbs. of steak fillets each (which have a current market price of $19.95/lb), a soft leather-like hide which is wonderful for gloves or handbags, and 6 antennae that make great fresh water fishing lures. Our Complete Butterfly Kit consists of 50 immature Lepidopterist Comforteous butterflies which will allow you to nurture a self sustaining colony after 90 days, a butterfly net enclosure, feed and water trays, and our book Growing Butterflies for Fun and Profit .

Choosing an Electric Blanket or Electric Mattress Pad

According to the Electric Blanket Institute approximately 4-1/2 million electric bed warming products are sold in the United States each year. There are many reasons to own and use an electric warming device but among the most important are to sleep better in a cool bedroom while staying warm, to keep warm without the weight of heavy blankets or comforters and, in today’s world, to substantially reduce your energy and fuel costs.   There are two main types of warming products sold.   The first is the electric blanket which goes over the body and the second is the electric mattress pad which goes over the mattress and under the body.    The choice is mostly a matter of personal preference although there are few distinct advantages of a mattress warmer over a blanket. · A mattress warmer uses somewhat less electricity than a blanket because more of the heat is contained in the bed. · A mattress warmer is inherently safer since it lays flat on the bed and is unlike
