Different Tog Duvets For Different Seasons

Did you know that the average person spends roughly one third of their life asleep? If you were to dedicate this much time doing any other activity, you would probably make sure you had the right equipment for the job – so why is it that so many people fail to invest in good quality bedding?

Day after day we hear nightmare stories from customers complaining about being too hot or cold in bed. Some of these people are even sleeping on age-old mattresses that offer little to no support. The quality of your sleep can affect the quality of your life – so you must make sure you are sleeping in the right conditions.

Your mattress is key, but your pillows and duvet also make a significant difference to the standard of your sleep – especially as the seasons change. Do you know which type of duvet you should be using at different times of the year? If not, then read on! Today we are going to talk you through the benefits of having different tog duvets in place for every season so you can sleep soundly every single night!


Different Tog Duvets And The Seasons

Tog stands for ‘thermal overall grade’ and is a unit of measurement that is used to calculate the thermal insulation of a product. Simply put, the higher the tog rating, the warmer the product.

The heaviest tog duvet is designed for those chilly winter nights when all you want to do is stay cosy and warm in the comfort of your bed. These usually fall within the 12 to 15 tog range.

It is important that you pick the right tog rating for each season. For example, a lightweight duvet that has a 3 to 4 tog rating will have you shivering throughout winter, however, on those scorching summer days it would probably be perfect.

If you walk into a high street shop, you’ll find almost all different tog duvets have a tog rating on their packaging as standard – you just may not have looked for it before. Next time you are in the market for a duvet – take the tog rating into consideration – you’ll find that the right tog-rated duvet will help you and your family sleep better than they ever have before, ensuring you all get the shut-eye you need to remain rested and healthy!

For your reference, we have included a chart from Scooms below.

Summer | 2.5 to 4.5 tog | Lightweight
Spring & Autumn | 7 to 10.5 tog | Cosy in a heated room
Winter | 12 to 13.5 tog | Very warm
All Seasons | 4.5 tog + 9 tog | Choose your warmth
