The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how light or brutal the season is, chances are that you’ve had plenty by the end of it. And just when you think spring is approaching, 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 honestly never know when you are going to need it next.
Through this time of changing weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might offer the best opportunity to get a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers provide important humidity to your house during the cold, dry air of the winter and can help keep you well in the wintertime. Here are a number of things to recall when choosing which humidifier to purchase for your home:
- Cost – of course you want to think about the price, but don’t forget to think about the operating and maintenance costs that go with a new humidifier, too. There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier functions on, similar to other heating and cool equipment. You will want to think about the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to make sure 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 usually be determined by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Recognizing this number and making sure that it corresponds to the needs of your home will help indicate what size humidifier is right for you. Our technicians can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the ideal product to choose.
