Stay Warm at Your Desk with a Heated Footrest
Heated Footrest: Warm Feet Are Happy Feet
While many of us try to keep the heat turned down a bit in the winter, that doesn't mean we like to be cold. Sometimes, just keeping our dangling feet warm can make all of the difference. A heated footrest can be an economical and convenient way of doing this.
Unlike a space heater, these heated footrests don't require a noisy fan or blower, they don't emit fumes, create moving air, or generate drier air and the static it can bring. They install just as easily though, as all they require is a standard outlet.
Some of the features you might want to consider when choosing a heated footrest are:
1. Adjustable heat settings. Sometimes you need more, or perhaps less heat.
2. Adjustable positions. One position doesn't fit all! You want to assure you can maintain good posture.
3. Safety. An on/off safety switch means that even if you leave the footrest on when you leave the area, you don't have to worry about it over heating or creating a fire hazard.
4. Flexibiilty. Some heated footrests can also be laid flat like a floor mat or set upright like a leg warming radiant heat panel.
