New research from Heating and Hot Water Industry Council showed that 89 percent of Brits will be changing their home heating behaviour this coming winter due to rising energy bills. Most are looking to stay warm by buying home heating devices.
Cheaper than using central heating, heated pads are the latest discovery that Brits have become obsessed with.
Great for keeping warm without increasing bills, Argos shoppers have been particularly praising the Revive Me Heat Pad from Dreamland.
Perfect to use in the winter, the heat pad provides instant heat with heat therapy, which also makes it great to use as a pain relief to aching muscles and joints.
A longer lasting alternative to a hot water bottle, it’s £40 and only costs around 1p per hour to run.
Cost-effective, practical and quick to use, you can place it on your back, front or legs while you work or relax.
It’s also made from super soft, non-allergic velvet material that moulds snugly to the body.
And you don’t need to worry about it being hard to clean as its machine washable and tumble dry safe.
You can also buy it on John Lewis and Boots.
Argos shoppers absolutely love it and some 91 percent of reviewers would recommend it.
Ginny said: “It’s much better than a hot water bottle as it has different heat settings. It don’t use up much energy and it saves boiling the kettle all the time as you would for a hot water bottle.
Maggie agreed: “Put mine in the bed at night and it’s good as it can just be removed if you get to hot. Well worth buying if you have any arthritis or muscle aches.”
While Jay added: “After heating up quickly it maintains the chosen heat setting for three hours and then switches off. I cannot fault it. It relieves my arthritic pain better than painkillers do.”
