It is that time of the year again! I don’t know whether there are people out there who are fans of the cold weather, but for sure I am not one of them.
In this article I am going to share some devices and items that you should have in your home, to keep you and your family warm and cozy this winter.
1. Space heaters
They are the most common type of warming devices in all households. They work by generating heat and warming the room it’s in.
The market has a wide variety of space heaters that you can choose from. If you are not careful when doing your selection, you might end up with a space heater that produces a lot of noise which can be very annoying.
To help you make a good selection, especially if you are doing an online purchase, then visiting a review site to read about customer reviews on the product will help you understand the best and worst features of the heater.
Alternatively, if you already own one and you are not ready to trash it, you may explore ways in which you may reduce noise from a space heater.
2. Heated duvets.
Fun Fact! Statistics show that an average person spends approximately 26 years of their life sleeping! I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend my 26 years sleeping all curled up in a fetal sleeping position feeling cold and lonely!
With almost everything being tech-integrated these days, bed duvets have not been left out either. To make your bed warm, cozy, and inviting during this winter, you may choose to get a heated duvet.
With heated duvets, you get to warm yourself as you sleep. Some of the best features you can find in most of them are temperature regulation, such that it can adjust itself up to the temperature you desire.
Also, when deciding to go for a heated duvet, do not only go for the heating aspect of it, there are other factors that you should consider when selecting a duvet.
3. Radiant floor heating.
There is a way in which you can warm the floors in your home. This is by the installation of a radiant floor heater.
The energy supply is even and when you compare it with a heated mat, the surface coverage is greater. Unlike some space heaters, they don’t produce noise or blow out air and it is energy efficient.
It might be a little more costly to install them but in the end, it is always a good investment to make even if it means scratching wallets out a little bit.
4. Heated mats
There are many categories of heated mats. First, you can get a foot warmer mat. This is great for those who get numb feet because of cold and socks and leg warmers don’t seem to help.
A foot warmer will generate heat directly and radial heat. Your feet will then conduct the heat, helping you keep your legs and body warm.
Another type of mat you can get this winter is a snow-melting stair mat. It is common for snow to collect on the stairs which sometimes become very slippery and might result in a serious injury.
To combat this, getting a heated stair mat will melt the snow away, giving you a safe staircase. All these types of mats can be purchased online, from homeware stores like Alphamarts. However, care should be taken before trading with any store.
Therefore I recommend reading homeware companies’ reviews, this will go a long way to help you make a good decision before you make a purchase. You will be able to tell how efficient the company is in its dealings from the customers who came before you.
5. Heated seats and cushions
Maybe your ideal evening relaxation in the winter season is sitting in front of a roaring fire, curled up on your sofa sipping a glass of wine, but unfortunately for you, your apartment does not have a fireplace!
The best option for you here is to get a heated cushion for your sofa. This will keep you warm and cozy and give you something to look forward to after a long day at work.
Speaking of work, you can also get a heated car cushion cover for your car. This will give you a warm and comfortable drive to work as you steer through the snowy weather.
Heated cushions and seats are pretty common and can be found at any homeware outlet near you, or you may choose to purchase them online.
