The Therapeutic Heated Mattress pad is a bit pricier than the Sunbeam Quilted Mattress Pad or the Soft Heat Warming Mattress Pad, but it also has a few more features. While all three of these electric mattress toppers offer couples the ability to independently control the heat on each side of a queen size or larger mattress, the Sunbeam Therapeutic Heated Mattress Pad has three heat zones on each side of the bed, which can each be adjusted independently. For example, the person on the left side of the bed can have warming at his or her feet only, while the sleeper on the right can aim heat on the back and head zones and cooler temperatures at foot level. The twin/full size mattress pad has three heat zones as well but, like all choices in these sizes, you can't adjust those independently for each side of the bed.
A heated mattress pad provides an added level of comfort by keeping you warm on cold nights. Heated mattress pads also allow you to keep heating costs down because you can turn the furnace down overnight and use the heated pad instead. Heated pads also keep your muscles warm to prevent morning stiffness. Sunbeam heated mattress pads come in both single- and dual-controller models and are available through online retailers and at brick-and-mortar stores.
