All the Products You’ll Need to Get Your Home, Outdoor Space + Car Winter-Ready
These Walmart products will help prepare you for winter. So, whether you're looking to secure your home, patio or vehicle before the big chill, HGTV has you covered.
When it comes to the changing seasons, nothing takes more preparation than going from fall to winter. When the leaves start to fall off the trees, it's time to start thinking about protecting your home for the winter to come. Proper winter prep means you have to think about everything. From snow and sleet to ice and freezing temperatures, there are ways to keep your home, outdoor area and car ready for anything.
Of course, Walmart is the one-stop-shop for it all. Whether you're looking for electric heaters, snow tire chains or all the products that will keep your patio warm enough to sit outside with your family, they have just the thing.
To make things easier, here's everything you need, below. You'll keep warm all winter, and because it's so simple to find what you need, you'll keep your cool while prepping, too.
Preparing your home for winter is all about keeping the cold out — without spending a ton on your heating bill. A space heater is perfect to heat up your living room while watching a few movies, and it will save you money in the long run (but don't forget to turn it off at night!). Add a humidifier to keep moisture in and your skin hydrated throughout the cold months; it can really be a game-changer for those with dry skin.
Now, if you don't have a fireplace, no problem: that's where an electric fireplace becomes a beautiful, convenient centerpiece in your home. Finally, don't forget things like flannel comforters to keep everything as cozy as possible.
This electric stove heater looks and functions similarly to a fireplace. It heats up to 1,000 square feet, has a realistic flame effect (which can be operated without heat) and an adjustable thermostat. The infrared quartz is there to help keep humidity in the room, so it won't dry out the air. It even comes in a few colors.
This warm mist humidifier is perfect for easing some common winter ailments: it can keep the air from drying out, so it'll keep you hydrated and even alleviate some sinus dryness. It has automatic shut-off, a large tank to fill up a living room or bedroom, and can be used with essential oils for additional soothing properties.
If you're looking to still spend time outdoors if it's a moderately cold winter day, look no further than a fire pit. It's a great way to keep getting fresh air, roast some s'mores or curl up with a blanket. However, if you want to maintain your space, this is the time to stock on a trusted snow blower, a handy snow pusher and some ice melters (there are even pet-friendly options now!) to keep your walkway and driveway clear and safe to walk on.
This durable, attractive fire pit is perfect for patios and works with help of a propane tank (sold separately). The bronze, rust-resistant piece is lightweight and easy to carry around, plus it comes with glass beads for the fire and a vinyl cover.
This cord-free snowblower from Sun Joe is perfect for clearing the snow from your front walkway, driveway or deck. It runs on a lithium-ion battery that allows the machine to run for up to 25 minutes, and it comes equipped with a battery and charger. It can clear a path up to 18 inches wide and comes with an LED light for increased visibility. Another bonus? It's whisper-quiet.
Snow tires are a must-have for any car, but there are a few other necessities you might not have thought about. There are electric blankets in case of emergency, lights to help increase your visibility on winding country roads and car covers if you don't have a garage.
