Consumers Protected from Dangerous Misinformation About Electric Blanket Products

New website focuses on educating consumers about the proper use and safety of electric blankets.

Online PR News – 22-September-2009 – – Charlotte, NC - Every fall, media publications around the country publish information about electric blankets. Unfortunately, much of this information is incorrect, because the writers of these articles are not experts in the field. This information puts many consumers at risk. The Electric Blanket Institute™ is working to correct this problem and provide consumers with accurate information from experts who know both bedding and electronics through a consumer education website,

Rick Lewis, the founder of the Electric Blanket Institute, and his other knowledgeable colleagues share a passion about teaching Americans the truth about the use, care and safety of electric blankets and electric mattress pads. Because of the vast amount of incorrect information available today, even from respected publications like major newspapers and magazines, many families are putting themselves at risk because of improper use. Others avoid using electric bedding altogether because of supposed risks. The website aims to educate and put fears at rest.

The main focus of the site is an education section that teaches consumers how to use and care for electric bedding properly. The advice is written by professionals who are knowledgeable about both bedding and electronics and features sound industry research. The site also contains information about the health benefits and energy savings possible with electric throws, blankets and mattress pads.

The creators of the Institute were not content to simply provide safety and care information. In an attempt to make the site as comprehensive as possible, they recently added a complete buying guide. They have put together the first comprehensive comparison review and buying guide for electric bedding products in 15 years. With this guide, consumers who are interested in electric mattress pads or blankets can search for a product by brand name or bedding type. Each product features a professional review and retailer list, allowing consumers to see the benefits and drawbacks of each and locate stores that sell them. The reviews are not simply from consumers who purchased the product; they are written by industry experts.
