Imagine sitting at your desk at home in sub zero temperatures with a hot cup of coffee and your feet on a toasty warm electronic warm floor mat. You do not have to wear socks when your feet are being warmed from beneath. Imagine playing on the living room floor with your kids and not worrying that the floor is too cold. In fact, you may find yourself stretched out across the floor together, enjoying a fun family movie, with a floor mat warming you from beneath. These mats are not only nice to have, but they can help you save electricity, prevent you from getting sick, and increase your comfort substantially.
If you live in a cold climate and do not want to worry about wearing socks all the time, then a warm floor mat is what you need. These mats are useful in a variety of ways. When you wake up in the morning you can walk into the bathroom and not worry about the tiles being cold. You can bring your battery operated floor warm mat with you to the kitchen. You bring them in the car with you. You can even place an electronic floor warm mat outside your front door to melt the ice and snow off your front porch.
There are three main advantages to using localized floor mat heating rather than relying on your forced air systems. First of all, when you are being warmed by contact instead of through air circulation, there is less chance of you getting allergies from pollen and allergens in the air. Second, forced air circulation dries up the moisture in the air. By using a heat mat, you can stay warm without worrying about dryness in the air. Lastly, it is a cheaper and more convenient way to warm yourself whether you are in your bedroom, living room, kitchen, or home office.
Your body heat escapes the most out of your head, hands, and feet. If you can keep your feet warm, you will be surprised at how warm the rest of your body feels. Heat mats come in a variety of types and sizes. You can get a simple heat mat for as low as 40 dollars. Or you can buy a large one for your living room for a little over 200 dollars. These heating appliances are available in most departments stores in season, or you can buy them at stores that specialize in heating and cooling.
