How do I attach this to a dog house wall?
Simply drill 4 small holes, one in each corner of the Deluxe Lectro-Kennel, making sure to drill only in the lip of the pad. Then screw the Deluxe Lectro-Kennel to the wall.
What temperature will the Deluxe Lectro-Kennel reach?
This product features an adjustable thermostat range of 80-100°F. When your pet is not on the pad, the heat will dissipate into the air and the surface temperature will vary according to the ambient air temperature.
Does the thermostat remember the set-point after power is removed and reapplied, or does it revert back to a default setting?
The thermostat reverts to the default setting of 100°F when plugged in again.
IS this pad pressure sensitive?
This bed is not pressure sensitive. All K&H heated beds and pads feature dual thermostats and are designed to warm to your pet's normal body temperature when he/she lies on the pad. This is a function of the insulation provided by a pet’s body, not the weight of the pet. K&H beds and pads will emit heat anytime they are plugged in so your pet can sense that heat and be drawn to the bed or pad for warmth and comfort. When your pet is not on the pad, the heat will dissipate into the air and the surface temperature will vary according to the ambient air temperature.
I see that each size has a different wattage. How does that translate to the actual heating temperature?
All of our heated products are thermostatically controlled, regardless of the size. The variation in wattage is directly related to the size and the wattage necessary to heat that size bed.
How long is the cord?
The cord is 5.5 feet long.
Can I use an extension cord with this product?
MET requires that all manufacturers put the extension cord statement “Do not use with extension cord” on every item that is MET listed by UL 499 standards. This is because they cannot test every extension cord on the market in conjunction with our products for safety. Also, MET suggests that an extension cord is not recommended as a permanent fixture and should only be a temporary solution when using any electrical product.
How long can a heated pad be plugged in?
MET Safety Laboratories suggests unplugging the bed if you leave your home on an extended vacation, as they do with any electrical appliance. Otherwise, it is designed for 24/7 operation and you can leave it plugged in all day. This item has been certified by MET labs to adhere to strict electrical safety standards.
Is there an off/on switch?
There is not an off/on switch. The bed is always on when plugged in.
Can you place a heated pad on top of another pet bed or blanket for extra cushioning?
Outdoor heated pet beds and pads should be placed on a flat, stable surface rather than on top of a bed or blanket.
Can I place a heated pad on the ceiling of a kennel in order to offer heat from above?Our heated pads require direct contact with an animal's body and do not provide radiant heat. For these reasons, we only recommend placing a heated bed or pad on the floor or sidewall where the dog’s body will come in direct contact with the product.
Is it safe to use this without the cover?
Yes, you can use K&H outdoor heated beds and pads with or without the included cover.
If a pet urinates on a K&H heated bed or pad, will it suffer any harm from the electricity on the mat? Our pet has an incontinence problem.
