February 04, 2016

The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how gentle or brutal 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 zips through. It’s important to stay in front of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you truly never know when you are going to have to use it next.

Through this time of shifting weather, the air and moisture are also in continuous flux, which might deliver the perfect 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 well in the wintertime. Here are a couple of things to remember when deciding which humidifier to get for your home:

  • Cost – of course you want to think about the price, but don’t forget to take into account the operating and maintenance costs that accompany a new humidifier, too. There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier operates on, just like 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 different, but all will usually 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. Finding this number and making sure that it corresponds to the needs of your home will help establish what size humidifier is perfect for you. Our technicians can also help you take into account the insulation in your home, which can sometimes impact the ideal product to choose.
