Sunbeam's Electric Blanket vs. The Cube
We’re going to discuss the differences between the Cube Sleep System and the Sunbeam Electric Blanket.
The Cube Sleep System
The Cube is dual heating and cooling pad that is made to fit mattress sizes ranging from a Twin to a California King.
Me sleep systems are designed to cool or heat one side of the bed. You'll receive one control unit and a cooling pad that covers half the bed.
We sleep systems are designed to cool or heat both sides of the bed. You'll receive two units and a cooling pad that covers the entire bed.
The customer is able to operate the Cube from 55 to 115 degrees Fahrenheit.* You can personalize your sleep climate for one or both sides of the bed.
*Peak performance is dependent on multiple factors such as ambient temperature, individual body mass and humidity and may not be suitable to replace conventional A/C.
The Cube houses a water circulation system that moves water through a network of microtubes. When it comes to maintaining the desired temperature throughout the night, the water circulation system is key, as it is shown to retain temperature longer and more safely than air or electrical system. The Cube is also safe for consumers, even pregnant women.
Not only are you able to warm your bed with the Cube, but you are also allowed to cool your bed, giving you the ability to control your sleep temperature year-round.
Note that today’s comparison can apply to other electric blankets in addition to Sunbeam’s products.
The Sunbeam Electric Blanket
Price: Sunbeam Electric Blankets can range anywhere from $49-$199 depending on the size, style and where you purchase your electric blanket (online, third-party retailer, etc).
Electric Blankets generally range from Twin to King sizes.
In general, the consumer can choose their desired heat setting based on a scale of approximately 1-10; the exact temperature is not specified. Some blankets have internal timers that will automatically turn the blanket off after 10 hours.
The electric blanket maintains heat through a system of electrical wires for a specified amount of time. As stated previously, electric blankets can put individuals at risk of overheating, fire hazards and being exposed to electromagnetic fields.
Electric blankets only have the capability to heat your bed, which only make them useful for certain times of the year for most individuals.
As the seasons begin to change and the temperatures start to cool, it’s important to understand what your options are when it comes to creating a comfortable sleep environment. Although an electric blanket can seem like an easy solution to those cold falls and winter nights, it appears that the Cube would be a safer investment. It’s also a great product that you can continue to use throughout the year.
