Mattresses and heating

Keeping warm in bed is a priority for many people during the winter months.

Advances in mattress technology means that you can almost certainly find a mattress that provides you with the comfort and support you need. You can also indulge in the latest in bed-heating technology to ensure that you are safe as well as cosy when the temperature drops.

Heated underblankets

Heated blankets have been around for many years, but are now available in more types and styles than ever before – and at prices from under ?20 to over ?100. An underblanket sits between your mattress and your sheet, covering your mattress completely. Made from a variety of fibres that promote warmth, such as fleece and cotton, these blankets have controllable heating elements built into them. Controls are now sophisticated enough so that you can put them onto a timer, and remove them altogether so that the blanket can be washed when required.

Heated overblankets

A heated overblanket can be used inside your duvet cover, or over your top sheet, providing an extra layer of warmth and comfort. A relatively new addition to the market, the heated overblanket means that you don’t necessarily have to put anything directly on top of your mattress, but you can still stay warm. Overblankets have a number of built in benefits, such as:

? Temperature sensors that adjust to room and body temperatures
? Machine washable
? Protection system to avoid overheating
? Heating controls with timer facilities
? Safe all night settings

Heated duvets and other products

You can now also buy a heated duvet, which is particularly useful for those who really feel the cold, or are ill and need a warm environment. Like underblankets and overblankets, these duvets have controls that can be removed for easy and safe washing and can be left on safely all night. In addition to heated duvets, you can buy other heated products, which help you to target certain areas – heated pads can sit on top of your mattress to keep your feet warm, for example, or under your pillow area to keep your neck and head from getting cold.
