Perhaps you have heard about heated mattress pads and wondered if you would like one on your bed. Read more about heated pads here. One of the best on the market is the Soft Heat Microplush heated mattress pad. It costs a little over $100, and can be found on Amazon as well as other retailers. Here is what we like about it:
The Soft Heat brand really lives up to the name. The actual cover itself is made of a soft “plush” cover, which really gives a nice softness and warmness to the surface of your bed. Beyond just that, heated mattress pads typically work by having wires that run through the inner parts that warm up, kind of like an electric blanket. The Soft Heat pad has some of the thinner wires you’ll find, which is important because sleeping on electrical wires probably doesn’t sound like much fun! These are so thin, you probably won’t notice they are there.
Beyond the basics of super thin, low voltage wires (which you should look for in any heated mattress pad) this one has some extras. One in particular that we liked is the ability to set a timer, to “pre-heat” your bed kind of like you would pre-heat an oven. You can set the thermostat for your house on a timer, and now you can do the same for your heated mattress pad. The controls are super easy, and you have a little more control over a standard heating pad because the Soft Heat product comes with 2 different zones. To us, this is one of the coolest and most critical features. Up until this point, you may have been reading thinking that you would love a heated mattress pad, but your partner would hate it because they always get hot at night time. Now you don’t have to worry, because you can basically turn their side off, and have your side to be set nice and toasty.
All in all it is a little pricey, but with the feature set you can’t really go wrong. Certainly you can still pay much more for a heated mattress cover, but there is certainly no need to. The Soft Heat Microplush does the job, and then some. My recommendation would be to not get cheap on this type of purchase to try to save $20 if your aren’t getting the same quality, and this value is hard to match overall.
