Keeping Warm and Comfortable

November 5, 2010

Keep your home warm, safely

Whether you are at home, at work, or on the go, you want to stay warm and toasty during the cold winter months. Rather than cranking up the thermostat (and your utility bill), learn about these safe and effective heating solutions.

Now, you might have already been thinking heating blanket, but this first item is a blanket like no other. The Soft Heat Warming Blanket is designed with  the latest heating and safety features. This blanket features a thermostat which retains the optimal temperature throughout the entire blanket, eliminating hot and cold spots. The temperature control is extremely accurate, and features an automatic shutoff function after 10 hours. Additionally, the blanket will shut off if temperatures reach high levels in order to prevent overheating. After the blanket returns to normal temperatures, it automatically turns back on.

The latest in space heaters comes in the form of the Vortex Smart Heater and the Flat Panel Wall Heater. The Vortex model is designed with a fan circulation system, spreading heat to all corners of the room. This eliminates cold spots, and ensures even heat distribution. This is the only heater with a thermostat built into the remote, allowing it to read the temperature of the air around the remote, not of the base unit. This lets the internal heater gain temperature readings from where you are, or wherever the remote is placed. The Vortex has overheating protection and other safety features.

The best way to prevent dry indoor air during the winter months is to use a humidifier. While some units may be cumbersome and even unsanitary, the Germ Guardian Ultrasonic Humidifier is a cut above the rest. Settings for temperature, humidity level, and hot or cold vapor allow you to create the perfect indoor environment. To prevent mold and bacteria from growing, the Ultrasonic Humidifier uses nano-silver technology to eliminate the harmful organisms. For this reason, traditional humidifiers may even cause people to become sick, but not anymore. Features a low-water indicator and silent operation.
