Mattress pads, memory foam covers, etc will reduce the sensation of heat.
Very good description of how they work...

Also...we found after we read the manual that these do not actually start to heat until you are lying on them...so you can't really "pre-heat" them. They activate when you are on them.

Ours works before hand, but maybe it's the weight of the pillows and comforter that is setting it off.
