Finding The Best Heated Mattress Padby Peggy Lane Marketing
Cold weather can be hard on anyone, especially the elderly. If you own property in a cold area of the world that prevents you from moving to warmer climates, or if you enjoy the cold and would never consider leaving it, keeping your body warm at night is extremely important for your well-being. Sleep is the body’s natural way of restoring itself. It allows many of your body’s natural defensive systems (like temperature control instincts) to shut down entirely or work at a much slower rate. Because of this, however, your body is unable to protect itself from cold at night, and if you suffer from arthritis or any other condition that might become worsened by extended exposure to cold weather, choosing to purchase heating mattress pads is one of the smartest choices you might ever make.
Old style heating pads have been used for years for everything from ailing a sore tummy to warming your feet on a cold winter’s night. Some of my fondest memories as a child were when my mother would apply our old heating pad if I was feeling poorly. Now, with modern technology, you can get a pad to cover your entire bed!
A heated, or electric mattress pad is essentially a warming pad that is placed underneath you while you sleep. Similar to a heated blanket, these heated pads keep your body completely warm from the bottom up. We all know what it feels like to toss and turn in your sleep, and often times blankets, pillows and anything else in your bed might get tossed to the side until you realize it in the morning. Thus, a heating mattress pad that goes under you is much more effective than your standard heated blanket that is placed over you at night.
Depending upon the temperature of your house, you are going to want a heated mattress pad that will keep you as warm as you need to be without making you feel uncomfortable or sweaty. For this reason, temperature adjustment is an extremely important aspect in choosing which type of pad is best for you. You also want to consider the physical feel of the pad; if it wouldn’t be comfortable for you to sleep on, it’s unlikely that you will be able to use it for any extended period of time. If you currently share your bed with a loved one, choosing a heated pad that warms the entire bed can sometimes cause a conflict of interest. If this is the case, consider looking for models that can be set to heat only one side of the mattress, leaving the other half of the bed completely unaffected.
