Buying Bedding For Children and Saving Money
Published: 6 July 2012 By MoneyHighStreet Staff Leave a Comment
In a world of rising electricity and gas bills, keeping you and your house warm is becoming harder and harder. Coupled with perpetually rising unemployment and hotter summers followed by even colder winters, did you know that getting the right bedding can actually save you money without lowering your discomfort?
Traditionally, or at least in some parts of the world, people would buy two sets of bedding depending on what time of year it is. Thicker bedding would be bought for autumn and winter whilst finer bedding would be bought for periods such as spring and summer.
Nowadays, thanks to new and improved manufacturing methods, this simply does not have to happen.
With companies such as The Bedding Company UK selling bedding suited to both conditions, you can spend far less on your outgoings whilst retaining the same level of comfort that you’ve always enjoyed.
For example, the All Seasonsduvet by Silentnight utilises hollow fibre filling that keeps you warm in the winter, whilst letting your body breathe during the cold recesses of winter.
This gives you great permission to turn off the fan during those heated and muggy nights; saving your comfort, your wallet its money and the earth its vital energy resources. Of course, in regards to the converse of this, during winter, this means that the thermostat can be lowered by at least one or two degrees.
Lowering your thermostat just one degree will save you £35 in heating costs per year, and to add to this you’ll also eliminate 325kg of carbon dioxide from being released into the atmosphere; with a multi season bedding set, this gives you the perfect chance to do just that.
But how else can bedding save you money?
The great news is that bedding can also help ease the costs of your medicine cabinet. Many of us suffer from allergies, most of us put up with it, but none of us should do so when it is time to sleep.
Getting quality sleep is one of the most imperative processes of our day, not only does it gear us up, mentally and physically for the next, but quality of sleep is also a great indication of how healthy our bodies are; giving us no time for unnecessary distractions such as allergies.
Thankfully, there is bedding on the market that is designed for hypoallergenic use; making sure that you get the most comfortable night possible.
With most of these hypoallergenic bedding materials combating both bacteria and bed mites, they are the perfect combatants against the world of allergies; especially amongst children who are more prone to such afflictions.
Also, if you or your child suffers from acne, hypoallergenic bedding can often be a great way of helping ease the disease as the anti-bacterial bedding works against the one of the key causes of the difficulty. Whereas most people embark of a continual cycle of fresh bedding, hypoallergenic bedding also offers you the opportunity to cut down on your washing bills.
Of course, if you suffer from arthritis, specialised bedding and mattresses that utilise memory foam technology help reduce pain as they help support affected joints and help increase circulation in distant parts of the body.
