The non-profit Electric Blanket Institute is an unbiased consumer guide founded to educate consumers about electric blankets and electric mattress pads. Their website is a one-stop resource for consumer reviews and information about safety, energy savings, care, health benefits and where to buy electric blankets, throws and pads.
Now, in addition to this service to consumers, The Electric Blanket Institute has developed and published a first-ever comparative heated electric blanket ratings chart of the major brands as part of its Consumer Guide to Electric Blankets.
When purchasing electric blankets, consumers have many options but until now have never been able to see each manufacturer’s blankets ranked for the features they would like to have in their new blanket. This rating chart offers consumers a unique way to determine which brand of heated blanket best suits their needs.
Brands are ranked by the 14 most asked-about features. For example, if someone is interested in purchasing the brand of warming blanket that’s the easiest to take care of, this new rating sheet will tell them which manufacturer ranked highest in that particular category.
The consumer can either take the recommendation as is, or if they want more information about the feature they can click on that feature’s link. Then they will be taken to an article detailing how and why the high ranking was bestowed.
After they have selected a particular heated blanket that is the most appropriate for them, clicking on that manufacturer will show them a list of retailers that are selling that particular brand this year.
Regarding the need for such a resource, the Consumer Guide’s Managing Editor Richard Zimmerer states, "Our website is already a comprehensive resource for anyone looking for information about electric blankets. But with this new addition, we have simplified a confusing process for consumers to make informed buying decisions by ranking those features that we get the most questions about.”
The Electric Blanket Institute’s heated electric blanket ratings chart is free to consumers and available in their Buyer’s Guide, located at http://www.electricblanketinstitute.com/buyers-guide/blanket-ratings.html.
