In the winter, I like to keep my house cool at night to save on my heating bill. I have a heavy goosedown comforter, but I wanted to extend its range, so I went to the store to look at heated blankets.
A heated blanket for my queen size bed was $80. From the same manufacturer, a heated throw was $25. The heated throw is about the size of a full size bed, but I figured that this heated blanket would be under a comforter, so it’d be okay.
When I got home, I realized that the heated throw has an auto off timer set for 3 hours. This is problematic, because about 4-7 hours into sleep is when the house is the coldest, and that is when the heated throw is most useful. The heated blanket has a timer for 10 hours.
I want to make the heated throw work for my needs. An extra $65 for a heated blanket starts to cut into the cost benefit justification of buying a heated blanket vs using more gas heat.
Is there a way to either manipulate the auto off timer (say, set it to 10 hours) OR deactivate it completely? I assume deactivating it completely will be easier.
