Why are electric blankets bad for you?
Heated blankets are regular blankets with wires that heat them up. They may be a source of fires and burns. When the recommended precautions are not followed, heated blankets pose a high risk of burn injuries and fires. Pregnant women who use electric blankets run the risk of miscarriage.
Is it true that a heated blanket consumes a lot of electricity?
An electric blanket could use up to 200 watts (depending on the setting). So if you leave it on for ten hours, it will consume two kilowatt-hours. Depending on where you live, this would cost between 15 and 30 cents.
