How much do electric blankets cost to run?

As we look for ways to cut down on our energy bills, it’s safe to say that electric blankets are an effective way to stay toasty when the temperature drops. While specific costs can vary depending on how long you run it for and at what temperature, on average, electric blankets can cost as little as three pence per hour to run. This is about a tenth of the cost of a kilowatt hour of electricity.


How do electric blankets work?

As effective as they are for keeping you cosy and warm, electric blankets are surprisingly simple. Very fine, flexible wires are weaved throughout the fabric, which heat up when the blanket is plugged in. However, as these wires are very thin, there’s no risk of feeling them or being poked by them while you’re cuddled up under your blanket.


How safe are electric blankets?

Like any device connected to mains electricity, some understandable risks come with using heated throws, bedsheets and blankets. However, with responsible use, they are completely safe to enjoy.

When you’re using your heated blanket, be sure not to bend or fold it tightly. It’s also advised to avoid spilling liquids when using your blanket, and not to cover it with another throw or duvet when it’s being used.

Once you’ve finished using your electric blanket, take care to unplug it.
