Taking advantage of electricity power, electric blankets are a valuable commodity and a good investment in the comfort require during the bone chilling season. In early 1990s, the electric blankets were invented but they were bulky and dangerous and it was then considered as an oddity to legitimate consumer products. Not until the 1920s that this apparatus were appealing to the public and made a way into the consumer market. Electric blanket is integrated with electrical heating device placed above the sheet. It uses adjustable thermostats to control temperature but after 1984, the use of rheostats which do not only measure the heat generated by the blanket but also the body heat generated by the user. Modern electric blankets have carbon fibre wires and produce heat on the far infra-red part of the spectrum, usually work on 24 volts giving a safer, more efficient and comfortable alternative. However, because the electric blanket is a combination of heat, electricity, flammable bedding material and a sleeping occupant, the use of this kind is of concern to fire safety internationally. There has always been a risk of accidental fires and electrocutions. It is estimated in the UK that 5000 fires per years are caused by faulty electric blankets. Research has shown that 10-year old blankets that are still in use in homes are responsible for 99% of the fires caused by electric blankets. Each year, 20 people are killed and over 250 injured in blanket fires. It also presents a burn risk to those who are unable to react in it like babies, small children, diabetics and the elderly. It has also been suggested that the long-term exposure to electrical fields are associated with the risk of having cancer, breast cancer and testicular cancer in particular. Since the use of electric blanket offers energy consumption and risks on both health and safety, here are some prudent suggestions and safety measures to protect you. 1.
