February 04, 2016

The winter is always changing, but no matter how manageable or brutal the season is, chances are that you’ve had a sufficient amount by the end of it. And just when you think spring is almost here, another cold front zips through. It’s critical to stay ahead of your furnace service, even during the last weeks of the winter, because you truly never know when you are going to require it next.

During this time of shifting weather, the air and moisture are also in continual flux, which might deliver the ideal opportunity to get a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers create important humidity to your house during the cold, dry air of the winter and can help keep you in good health in the wintertime. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing which humidifier to get for your home:

  • Cost – of course you want to consider the price, but don’t forget to consider the operating and maintenance costs that come with a new humidifier, too. There are various levels of efficiency that each humidifier functions on, similar to other heating and cool equipment. You will want to take into account the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to ensure that your investing in the best choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is unique, but all will commonly have a number that indicates the gallons per day that it can retain. This number can typically be calculated by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Identifying this number and making sure that it agrees with the needs of your home will help establish what size humidifier is perfect for you. Our experts can also help you consider the insulation in your home, which can often impact the top product to choose.
