How Does the Topper Heat?
The heating in the Snug Topper is accomplished using a distributed electric heating element inside the topper that is very energy efficient. It is sufficiently far from the touchable sleep surface and the temperature of the heating element is strictly controlled to ensure safe temperatures.
With safety as a priority, the heater in the topper is low powered and slowly heats up the bedding. Do not expect instant heat as it can take 20 minutes to perceive the heating and 60 minutes to get to a noticeably warm temperature. Also, be aware that once the bedding is heated up it can take up to 15 minutes of cooling to reduce the bed temperature.
The heater in each sleep zone of the topper is divided into two sections – body and foot. This allows having increased temperatures in the foot area of the topper to bring comfort to those with cold legs and feet. Note that Queen, King and California King sizes have two sleep zones with independent controls, while Twin, Twin XL sizes have only one sleep zone.
The fans will not run while the topper is heating.
