Unfortunately this is not advised as it is unsafe to do this.
Can you tell me how deep the cover is, my mattress is 9 1/2 inches deep.
The depth of the fitted skirt is 32cm so should fit your bed.
Do the dimensions you give for the overall size include the skirt or are they just for the blanket area?
The dimensions given are just for the blanket area
Are these blankets ok to use with memory foam mattresses? I have read somewhere that it is ok, and somewhere else that says you need to be careful to turn off the electric blanket when you get into bed. Is there a final word from the manufacturer?
The manufaturer does not recommend the use of electric blankets with foam mattresses
Is the Homefront ACHNWD spill proof and can you use it on a memory foam mattress?
This blanket is not spill proof. It has electric heating elements running through it. We would not recommend you to use on a memory foam mattress.
Are there any wires or other ridges you can feel when lying on top of this?
Is it safe to be in bed with it turned on?
The wiring is extremely fine and can barely be felt when lying upon the blanket and the blanket is totally safe to be in bed when it is switched on.
Is it possible to buy a replacement control unit for this electric blanket?
We have controllers available but we would recommend you to call our Sales Team on 0800 0913171 to see if the ones we do have are compatible with your model.
I wish to replace my present double electric blanket, with one control unit, with the Homefront model ACHNWD as it scored very well in Which magazine. This blanket has duel controls which I do not need. Can one control be set to overide the other so that
Unfortunately, you cannot use one single controller to over-ride both controllers.
Please can you give me specific data about the electricity consumption of this item. We are off grid and have to be very careful about power consumption and are considering purchasing these for the children. Thank you
60 watts per controller therefore 120watts in total per hour when both sides are on.
Is there a detachable connector on the cover between the power and the cover? If so where is this positioned?
The controller disconnects from the blanket which is at shoulder height.
Are your blankets, particularly the fleece one, designed to have a sheet on top of them. It was not clear from the video if this was the case.
The electric blankets are designed to have a sheet over them.
Why can this electric blanket not be used
on a memory foam mattress?
The benefits of the memory foam mattress will be diminished with having the electric blanket between your body and the mattress.
Does this electric blanket have a timer control allowing you to turn it off after an hour or so?
This product only has heat setting option, and does not have a timer.
Can the foot area be heated independently of the rest of the blanket? (Fitted double)
The foot area cannot be heated independently of the rest of the blanket.
I have homefront double achebc serial no po000690which I recall was machine washable. How do I disconnect controllers prior to washing
Please unplug the controller from the mains electric. Then follow the wire up to the blanket and you will see a plastic cover which has a small peg in it. Lift the plastic flap and this will release the controller from the blanket connection.
is this safe for use with a pacemaker?
We would advise you to consult your GP about this matter. We cannot advise on medical issues.
what is the highest heat setting?
The highest heat setting is 3. We cannot give an exact temperature in degrees celcius, as factors such as external room temperature would affect this.
Two questions: 1. Does the double size come with a single control? 2. What is the size of the actual heated area?
This blanket comes with dual controls and the actual heating size is from shoulder height down to the feet. There is a 9 inch (23cm) gap from the bottom of the feet to where the heating element starts, and around 3 inches (8 cm) at either side.
The electric blanket is machine washable. Please tell me at what setting it can safely be washed, as most wash settings have a spin at the end.
We would advise you to wash on a 'wool' or 'delicates' cycle at a temperature of 40 degrees Celsius. Do not use high speed or extra spin cycles.
Is there a footcontrol on this model?
No, there is no foot control on this blanket. We would advise you to look at 152506 which has the foot control.
Do you need 2 plug sockets for the double.
Yes although if you only want to have one side of the bed on, you can just plug that side in with the other left unplugged.
Can a person remain in bed with the blanket switched on
Yes, the person can stay in bed while the blanket is switched on.
Please tell me the length of the controller cables. Do I need to use an extension lead if my socket is only on one side?
The cable length including the plus is 88.5 \".
