Ok, so I love my electric blanket because I hate to get into a cold bed in the winter time. I am one of those who thinks they 'could' be bad to use them when in bed so I always turn mine off when I get into bed.. but, that's not the purpose of this thread (although I'm always open to hear other's opinions on the health issues of said electric blankets). Now, on to my actual question: None of the electric blankets I've ever had has worked well past two years. They usually quit working well by a year and a half into having them. When I get a new one it heats up wonderfully within 15 minutes. Within a year and a half it takes 2 hours to get it to vaguely warm up the bed. Anyone else have this problem or know why it might be happening?
