Sofa, couches and sofa covers are just a few of the items to keep in mind for 2018 when it comes to preparing for winter.
The National Weather Service says that the snow will be heavy and cold, but warm temperatures will continue to roll through the nation and the cold will be a blessing for those who can endure it.
“As of the close of business Friday, the average minimum temperature in the lower 48 states was 41 degrees Fahrenheit, the national average for the same time period was 44.7 degrees Fahrenheit,” according to the NWS.
“The warmest temperature recorded in the contiguous United States was 43 degrees Fahrenheit in January of this year, and February of this will be the hottest month in the continental U.S. on record.”
Here are some of the best tips to keep your furniture and home cozy this winter:Stay away from heat and cold.
If you can, avoid heat and warm temperatures.
The coldest temperature ever recorded in January in the U.K. was 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
In some cases, you may need to make adjustments.
The temperature outside can increase in colder months, so make sure you’re not over heating your home or getting a bit too cozy.
If you need to do a more thorough cleaning, keep an eye on the weather and look for areas where the air temperature is above zero.
If it’s not freezing cold, consider getting a little bit of extra insulation for your home.
“I know I didn’t have that last year, so I was able to get away with a bit of a warm spot in my home,” said Ms. Kallum.
“I’ve always been a bit cold-weather kind of person, but I was lucky enough to have an extra layer of insulation in my room,” she said.
In other cases, there may not be much to do during the cold weather, but there are ways to help get the house in good shape.
“If you don’t have the time to go outside, there are many options for a quick escape,” said Kallumi.
“If you have a small garden, you can make a fire and set it on fire, or you can cook some food on a stove top.
Just make sure that you take the food outside.”
