To feel comfortable in winter, people buy warm clothes and heaters, but not only these things need people in winter. Today we will talk about those things that will make your life on the street and at home in the cold months of the year better, easier and more convenient.
Firstly, if you live a bark, then you should take care of such things as generators, snowplifier equipment and a good car. For people who live in a suburb, it is best to buy a car of increased cross -country ability. For this purpose, it is worth buying crossovers (large for families with children and small for loners or steam that are not married). The car should have a canister with fuel, a bottle of motor oil, spare wipers, brush for cleaning from ice and shovel. It is also advisable to get gloves to work with smartphone screens, a sleeping bag, a spare pair of warm winter shoes for walking in the snow, thermal underwear and cheap raincoat. In the most suburban house, it is necessary to hold a generator, a chainsaw and snowpock equipment (+ shovel).
Among the generators you will find portable and stationary. Keep in mind that cheap models can simultaneously feed not many items in the house. On average, small portable models during the disconnects of the main electricity will support the operation of refrigerators, pumps, lighting devices and some other equipment. You will need more powerful models if you need to work with a large number of electrical appliances and stationary models, if you are going to live for a long time without access to basic electricity. Typically, generators choose power and 10 kW are enough for most houses (such a power is offered by a diesel shift generator and many other models).
The snowpipe is a long -term investment, that is, this equipment will last you for many years. Saving on this technique is not advised. The most popular models in all reviews have a quiet engine and steering (the snowman should be easily controlled); The most popular models are suitable for both light snow problems and for strong rubble after snowfall. For example, the snowmaker Craftsman 88691. This is not a cheap model, but it has a rather high rating, and some premium functions of this machine in other devices are available at a higher price.
When choosing a shovel for snow cleaning, it is better to pay attention to ergonomic models. These shovels will not allow your back to suffer while you remove snow from the porch or clear the rubble in front of your car.
Inside the house (or apartments) in winter requires: an additional heating device, a humidifier, a sleeping bag, a heater for arms and legs, winter slippers, winter bedding, a thermos and some other things.
Even if you have everything in your apartment with heating, it is important to get an additional electric radiator, because unforeseen circumstances often leave people without heating (unexpected shutdowns or the onset of cold weather before the central heating). In the same case, things such as sleeping bags and thermos (thermos also helps to save on constant warming up of water, that is, it removes the load from the teapot, which burns a lot of electricity in winter).
If your arms or legs are freezing (and poor blood circulation torments almost all city residents), then it is better to buy heels for hands and legs or get good warm slippers, and not include radiators for additional heating. You will be much more comfortable with these devices.
The air humidifier is necessary in winter, because in winter the air becomes very dry, including in the house. Therefore, many allergies in winter begin to suffer especially, and in individual people skin, eyes or lips begin to dry, breathing problems or various other troubles with the body begin. If you are not sure about the air in the premises of your house, buy a weather station that will tell you the exact indicators of humidity and temperature.
Winter textiles for the home are of great importance. Comfortable heat is achieved not by layers of blankets and rugs (which create the conditions of the sauna in bed), but with one warm breathing blanket.
Other things that need to be kept in the house in winter: water supply, water purification (filter-worshiper or other options), bottles, food supply (long-term storage, including energy bars), portable grill and malloles with coals, set of the first help, medicines, flashlights, batteries, candles, tape, tools.
