A cheap electric blanket which is a best seller on Amazon is helping buyers reduce their heating costs. Happy customers have called the Silentnight Comfort Control Electric Blanket a “godsend” amid the cost of living crisis.
The electric blanket comes in single, double and king sizes starting from £30 and is machine washable. It plugs into a socket and has low wattage, meaning it costs from just 1p per night to run, reports BirminghamLive.
This means it is much cheaper than running heating overnight. And electric blankets fit with Money Saving Expert founder Martin Lewis’ idea to “heat the human not the home” to reduce energy use and save money on bills.

Key features of the Silentnight electric blanket, which is designed to sit on top of the mattress under the bed sheet, including its “super snuggly fleece material”, overheat protection, fast heat up time and three heat settings. There is a dual control version allowing you to adjust it from both sides of the bed and a fleecy version for extra comfort and cosiness.
One reviewer on Amazon wrote: “Very happy so far. This will save me putting the heating on for a while longer”. Another posted: “Cheap to run compared to heating as well, so great investment for winter.”
