EIA Estimates 28 Percent Increase in Heating Cost: How to Offset the Hike

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Feb. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) expects U.S. natural gas prices will grow by another 28.36 percent in 2013 (78 cents/MMBtu) and by 8.78 percent (31 cents/MMBtu) in 2014. Safe electric heating products can help people stay comfortable as they turn their thermostats down, saving up to $48 per month on heating costs for the remainder of the winter. SoftHeat® heating products with Safe & Warm™ technology from Perfect Fit Industries are the safest heating products available.

According to U.S. Department of Energy estimates, turning your thermostat down just a small amount can save between four and 48 dollars every month. Considering the steep rise in energy costs the second half of this winter, a more budget-smart heating choice is to turn down the thermostat and turn on an electric warming product. SoftHeat® heating products with Safe & Warm™ technology from Perfect Fit Industries are the safest heating products available.

About SoftHeat®:

Blankets, throws, mattress toppers and foot warmers using Safe & Warm™ technology are the only blankets approved and listed as non-hazardous by UL, the international safety consulting and certification authority. Unlike other electric products that operate on 120v of current, SoftHeat® products with Safe & Warm™ technology operate on less than 25 volts, the current it takes to illuminate a light bulb! 

The wires are also three times thinner than conventional warming product wires, making them virtually indiscernible to the touch. These super-thin wires provide more even heating, so you don't have to worry about "cold spots". For added safety,  SoftHeat® products even feature an auto shut off feature after 10 hours of use.

So, as heating prices climb as high as Nemo's snow banks and the next winter storm looms around the corner, reach for an electric heating product instead of the thermostat dial and save money. If you go for a SoftHeat® blanket, throw, mattress topper, or foot warmer, you can know that you'll also be safe as you snuggle up.
