The winter is always unpredictable, 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 approaching, another cold front zips through. It’s important 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 need it next.
Throughout this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might provide the ideal opportunity to invest in 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 healthy in the wintertime. Here are a number of things to keep in mind when deciding which humidifier to get for your home:
- Cost – of course you want to take into account the price, but don’t forget to consider the operating and maintenance costs that accompany a new humidifier, too. There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier runs on, just like other heating and cool equipment. You will want to think about the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to guarantee that your investing in the best choice.
- Size – each humidifier is different, but all will commonly have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can hold. This number can usually 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 perfect for you. Our experts can also help you take into account the insulation in your home, which can sometimes impact the top product to choose.
