Shoppers are ‘switching off heating’ by using ‘cheap to run’ blanket

With winter temperatures set to continue into March, shoppers have discovered an Amazon product that helps them keep warm without splashing out on expensive heating bills.

With electric blankets gaining popularity last year, Brits have been using them to get through the winter months during the cost of living crisis.

The handy household items can cost from just 4p an hour to run, which is much less than using central heating, and can also be used as normal blankets when not switched on.

Amazon has slashed the price of the Mia&Coco Electric Heated Blanket by £40, which would originally set shoppers back by £89.99, but is reduced to £49.99 and is a long-term investment to save money on energy bills.

With an easy plug-in LED controller, the blanket has 10 heat settings to switch between, whether gentle warmth or full-on heat is required.

The cosy flannel and sherpa material is designed to provide warmth even when the heating element is not in use, and is soft and gentle on the skin.

The nine-hour auto shut-off function is ideal for giving peace of mind while in use, especially when being used in bed.

There are eight colours to choose from, but the grey shade is reduced and is a neutral piece that would seamlessly fit into any decor style.

Shoppers have left over 3,000 reviews on the blanket, with many rating it highly for comfort, softness and heat output.

DonnaJ said: ”I absolutely love this blanket. It is cheap to run and very soft and snuggly. I don’t need my heating on when I’m under it. I spend hours under it on the sofa and would not be without it. Best purchase I’ve made all year!”

Mrs Vivenne Wilson commented: ”Keeps me warm while working at home without having to switch my heating on.”

Craftgirl22 also added: ”This throw is so soft. It feels cosy even before you switch it on. Heats up well and is saving on my heating bills.”
