Your Fall & Winter Home Appliance Wishlist
Fall is well underway this year, and as winter approaches, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to ensure your home has a comfortable airflow and temperature during the coldest months of the year. The season calls for a different assortment of house appliances, and to help you make your home the coziest it can be we’ve put together a fall and winter home appliance wishlist:
48″ 4-Speed Tower Fan with Remote Control
Summer may be only a memory, but fans still come in handy for regulating temperatures in your home during the fall and winter seasons. Slim profile models like this 48″ 4-Speed Tower Fan with Remote Control take up very little space and don’t look out of place outside of the summer – however, they’re perfect for keeping around for unexpectedly warm days or when you have a lot of guests over in a small space for parties and other get-togethers.
Pure Platinum HEPA Air Purifier with Remote Control and Auto Clean
The drop in temperature and fewer hours of sunlight that accompany autumn means that you and your family will be spending more time inside your home. Make sure the air quality is good and that you can breathe easy with the Pure Platinum HEPA Air Purifier with Remote Control and Auto Clean. It features three-stage filtration that removes smoke, odors, dust, allergens, fumes, mold, bacteria, viruses and more from the air, in addition to pet hair and dust. With this or our other HEPA air purifiers, your family can enjoy cozy autumn days and evenings together.
Designer Series Ceramic Heater
Sipping a hot mug of cider while curled up on the couch with a good book makes for a lovely fall evening – but a chilly home is anything but relaxing! Make sure everyone is warm and toasty this fall with the beautiful Designer Series Oscillating Ceramic Heater. It has two quiet settings so it’s not disruptive and 1500 watts of comforting warmth to make your home the ultimate fall haven.
High-Performance Recirculating Room Humidifier
Flu season will be here before you know it, so make sure you are taking everyday steps to protect yourself and your family. Wash your hands regularly and carry around an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Be on top of cleaning commonly used surfaces, such as tabletops and telephones, since they can be instrumental in spreading germs. If you start to feel under the weather, make sure you stay home and get plenty of rest. Use a humidifier to ease symptoms such as congestion and sinus pain.
Additions to Get Your House Ready for Fall
With the air turning colder, you need to make inevitable adjustments to your home. Want to create an oasis from the chilly winds of autumn? Here are a few tips to ensure you stay warm while the seasons change:
1. Bring warmer colors into your decorating and dim the lights
Country Living recommended adding soft, warm reds, yellows and oranges to increase comfort in your space. Elle magazine recommended using chandeliers and lamps to create a glowing atmosphere, as well as good quality curtains that can be drawn to fend off aggressive sunlight. Midwest Living recommended adding lots of artwork to the walls to create an intimate and creative setting. This can also be a chance to show off the talents of friends and family!
2. Take advantage of warm days
Country Living suggests hosting an outdoor gathering in early fall before the frost sets in. Your guests will not be expecting a post-labor day dinner party under the stars, so it is sure to be a unique departure from the ordinary. Host this soiree where autumnal foliage can be seen for a wonderfully seasonal effect. Take your family and guests for a walk or bike ride through the woods to appreciate beautiful foliage, pick apples and pumpkins at a local farm, or get everyone involved with yard work by making games out of collecting leaves, branches and rocks. The CDC recommended that children stay active for at least one hour per day, so once the air gets colder, find fun activities to do inside like high energy games of charades or dancing to music.
3. Serve seasonal food
Plenty of fruits and vegetables are ripe during the fall months, so take advantage of them using healthy recipes. Give your guests the true taste of autumn by using fresh, ripe ingredients. According to Women’s Health Magazine, apples, carrots, cranberries, mushrooms, pumpkins and sweet potatoes are great ingredients to incorporate into the dishes at your next dinner party.
4. Keep it cozy
Once the air turns cold for good it is important to create a welcoming indoor environment. You should increase the number of throws in your room to make it an inviting area to read a book or watch TV, transforming it into a snuggly paradise. Make sure your central gathering space is equipped with warm blankets, hot drinks and space heaters to keep your guests comfortable and satisfied.
