How to Improve Your Home During the Fall and Winter
Whether you’re hosting family, throwing parties, or just sitting around the fire, there’s nothing better than a healthy, cozy house during the holidays. Making home repairs and upgrades during the fall and winter months is a great way to prep for cooler weather and create a more comfortable, energy-efficient home for you and your guests. At Brondell, we’re all about the happy, healthy home experience! We’ve broken down some helpful ways to update your living space to make it more comfortable, clean, and efficient.
Update your water filter before the holiday rush.
Constantly refilling a water pitcher is a drag, especially with guests in the house. For a healthier, more efficient holiday season in the kitchen, consider updating your kitchen by replacing your water pitcher with an under-the-counter water filter for continuously filtered water. Our Coral under-counter water filtration system is simple to install and certified by the WQA for 60 different contaminants including lead, chlorine, chloramines, and mercury.
The Coral’s benefits extend well past the holidays. Not only does the Coral filter more contaminants than pitchers, you’ll only need replacement water filters every six months. When it’s time for a water filter replacement, an indicator light on the Coral’s faucet will even remind you when it’s time to replace the filter. You’ll always have a worry-free flow of quality water in your home. The Coral comes in two filter set-ups: the UC300 for larger households and the UC100 for smaller households. Both will provide your family (and your holiday guests) with best-in-class, delicious water right at your sink.
Seal leaks for a cozier winter.
No one likes a chilly home; that’s why it’s important to check your insulation and seal any cracks around windows, doors, and electrical outlets. You’ll improve the energy-efficiency of your house and even save up to 20% off your electric bill by doing so. If you need to update your insulation, give your local expert a call before the cold weather hits.
Bring filtered water to your shower with a showerhead replacement.
The holidays are full of parties, family gatherings, general merriment...and photo opportunities! Get your skin and hair looking photo-ready while you shower with the VivaSpring Filtered Shower Head. Protect your body from the harmful effects of chlorine and other contaminants in your water. A soothing rain spray of filtered water helps alleviate dry skin and bring shine to dull, flat hair. What’s even better? Once installed, the shower head filter replacements last for six months, so you know you’ll look great even when the holidays are over.
Let there be (energy-efficient) light.
The fall and winter months bring darker evenings sooner and consequently, more electricity use. Energy-efficient light bulbs have very low energy-use and help with electricity costs. Replace your incandescent bulbs with LEDs for a cost-efficient home improvement. You can even update your festive holiday lights!
Get rid of that musty winter dust with a new air purifier.
When the weather gets cooler, you don’t always want to go outside to breathe in the fresh air. But indoors, the air can start to feel stuffy and even trigger allergies. Our HALO True HEPA Air Purifier is an affordable way to clean that musty air. And if the air is extra smelly, the Advanced Deodorization air filter replacements are the perfect solution. You and your guests will breathe easier and better enjoy the smell of baking cookies!
Have a Happy Holi-bidet!
Looking for that one luxurious update for your bathroom this holiday season? Not only will a Swash bidet toilet seat give you a shower-fresh clean after the big holiday feast, additional features like the toilet bowl nightlight, heated seat, and warm air dryer will make it indispensable during cold winter nights. This healthy, effective alternative to toilet paper and wet wipes is also better for your house and the environment. By seriously cutting down on your toilet paper use, you’ll save money, have fewer clogged toilets, and save the water, trees, and power used in wasteful toilet paper production. If you’re looking for the best bidet for your home, we have a variety of options to choose from that will turn any toilet into a porcelain throne.
At Brondell, we’re dedicated to creating healthy, energy-efficient homes during the holidays and beyond. Whether you need a new air purifier, water filter replacements, a new shower head, or want to try a bidet, we’ve got the products you’re looking for.
