Electric blankets can't cool you off. But let's take a look at how well they can keep you warm: try Good Houskeeping's Research Institute reviews on the best electric blankets. According to GH, electric blankets can take up to one hour to raise the temperature of the bed by 20 degrees F. The BedJet raises the bedding temperature of a king sized bed by 20 degrees F in just minutes, operating at 10-15x the speed of any electric blanket or electric mattress pad technology on the market. This enables a quick toasty bed pre-heat just minutes before you get into bed.
The Electric Blanket Institute tells us the the average electric blanket puts out less than 200 watts of heating power, and some portion of this energy is emitted to the top side of the blanket into the bedroom. The BedJet provides 1500 watts of safe, dry heating power, nearly 100% of which goes straight into your bedding. The temperature of the hot air from the BedJet is safe, at approximately the same temperature as your household HVAC central air heating register.
Many electric blankets aren't reliable after repeated washing or have very special washing and drying instructions that must be followed. The BedJet works with your existing bedding and sheets, you can wash them any time you like.
Electric blankets have embedded wires which you can feel and these wires can be chewed on by pets or damaged by children and sharp objects. Take a look at the IR camera image of a brand new blanket purchased from a major department store after 45 minutes on "Hi" setting. The wires do not provide even heating as shown by the IR camera and older electric blankets cause fires every year from wires in the bed just like this:
Now compare to the amazingly even cooling and heating results achieved by the BedJet, which comes with it's very own warming and cooling blanket accessory, the AirComforter:
We at the BedJet Company are not enthusiastic about having live electricity in the bed of any kind, or sleeping all night bathed in electromagnetic fields from electrical wires just millimeters from our bodies. Our BedJet AirComforter accessory is a safer alternative to electric blankets because all the because all the electricity is kept well outside of the bed where it belongs.
