February 04, 2016

The winter is always changing, but no matter how gentle or intense the season is, chances are that you’ve had quite enough by the end of it. And just when you think spring is around the corner, another cold front comes through. It’s crucial to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to need it next.

Through this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in continual flux, which might provide the ideal opportunity to capitalize on a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers offer important humidity to your house during the brisk, dry air of the winter and can help keep you in good health in the wintertime. Here are a few things to recall when determining which humidifier to buy for your home:

  • Cost – of course you want to consider the price, but don’t forget to think about the operating and maintenance costs that accompany a new humidifier, too. There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier operates on, not unlike other heating and cool equipment. You will want to consider the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to guarantee that your investing in the right choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is distinct, but all will usually have a number that shows the gallons per day that it can retain. This number can generally be determined by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Finding this number and making sure that it corresponds to the needs of your home will help indicate what size humidifier is right for you.
