Dual Control Electric Blanket

I can’t think of a better way to stay warm at night than by using a dual control electric blanket.  Now, the person on the opposite end of the bed can’t stand the heat at night and will only use the electric blanket during the absolute peak time of the winter.  Really she only uses it about 5 times a year.  Instead of having to fight over when it is on or off, we just simply purchased a dual control electric blanket so we would both have control of the temperature on each end of the bed.

This not only keeps us both happy, comfy, and warm at night, but it has limited unnecessary arguments and disagreements…which is always a good thing.  There are a few things to look for when trying to find the right dual control electric blanket for your bed.  Here are just a few tips to help you out.

Dual Control Electric Blanket: Choices


A dual control electric blanket will come in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, and colors.  Know what size your bed is before you go out shopping.  The blankets will also come with different options for heat controls.  The bigger sizes will usually have the dual control as mentioned above, the smaller ones will not.  Many will also have an automatic shut off in case you leave it on, thus preventing the risk of a fire when you are not around.  These controls also have the option of timers that will shut the blanket off while you are sleeping if you want it to.

Shopping for a Dual Control Electric Blanket


It’s always wise to get a real feel of the dual control electric blanket before you buy it.  Sure there are probably lots of good deals online, but that means you risk getting an electric blanket that is scratchy and uncomfortable.  If you find a good deal for an electric blanket online, try to find out what material it is and then go to the store so you can physically get a feel for it to see if you like it.

I would suggest you do the store shopping first, find a few electric blankets you like, then go home and search the internet to find out if you can get a cheaper deal for the same blanket.  Most times you can.  Never buy a used dual control electric blanket and if you’re not sure if a certain brand is good, ask around.
