August 3, 2007 Electric blankets are a boon for those who want to avoid the winter cold but they quickly become redundant during the warmer months of the year. LLC has pounced on this gaping hole in functionality by producing an electric blanket that can switch between both ends of the temperature scale, helping slash air conditioning bills in the summer as well as heating bills in the winter. The quiet, slim Cool-or-Hear Pad can oscillate between a 70 and 96 degrees Fahrenheit (21 - 35.5 degrees Celsius) and is available now for US$200.
The Cool-or-Heat Sleep Pad rides on the success of the Cool-or-Heat Seat Cushion which is designed to perform the same function on car seats. Both products are created not only to save money for the user, but also to increase health and comfort. Krista Walker, co-founder of Cool or Heat LLC claims that the products have helped relieve night sweats, hot flashes, fevers, back pain, menopause and restless leg syndrome. They’re also a great help in simply delivering a comfortable night’s sleep – a necessity that becomes quite scarce in the extremes of summer and winter.
The 29 by 56 inch pad fits on all bed sizes and can be placed on top of the sheets or on top of the mattress. Each retail package includes an ultra-quiet thermoelectric power-pump with a digital temperature display that sits on the side of the bed, a slim-line soft cotton and foam mattress pad with inner tubing that circulates cooled or heated water and a convenient corded remote control.
