Bed-Warmer: Getting someone’s bed warm?

Posted On // 1 comment
Don’t get any wrong ideas here but a hotel chain is employing human bed warmers to help guests get a good night's sleep.





If you like your bed warm and toasty right when you climb in, you could call on the service of a bed-warmer. Certain hotels actually have employees that wear special thermal suits and lay in the beds before you arrive. To most this probably sounds weird and creepy, but obviously some people must like it. In UK the walking electric blankets are dressed in special all-in-one sleeper suits and are sent to warm the beds of guests staying at the Holiday Inn before they get under the covers.


The bed-warmer is equipped with a thermometer to measure the bed's required temperature of 20°C (68F).


Dr. Chris Idzikowski, director of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre, said the idea could help people get off to sleep. He said ''There's plenty of scientific evidence to show that sleep starts at the  beginning of the night when body temperature starts to drop. The decline occurs partly because the blood vessels
of the hands, face and feet open up and release heat." The five minute free bed warming sessions were tried out in London. This is a job where if you are a little over weight, it might be a good thing and a plus and the best part is that "napping on the job is the job."


Families in the 1700s and 1800s relied on fire to heat their living spaces. Even so, cold drafts were a problem most winter nights. They used to put gadgets to warm the beds underneath or even on the bed.Human warmer is the latest trend in hotel business. And there are guests as well as the people around there who just loved this idea and opt for the service as well as for the job. The average salary for bed warmer job is $202,000. Average bed warmer salaries can vary greatly due to company, location, industry, experience and benefits.


Jane Bednall, spokesperson for Holiday Inn said: "People want to leave the cold outside and climb into a warm bed. The new Holiday Inn bed warmers service is a bit like having a giant hot water bottle in your bed. And of course they jump out before you jump in!"


There is no downside to this job as long as you are okay to get out in the cold weather after being warm in a comfy bed once it's ready for the guest. And to warm a bed for few minutes in ofcourse a bit silly custum is not that bad when the salary is in six figures. Winter is already there, what do you think of the job? Or may be you are better off warming your own bed.
