The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how gentle or brutal the season is, chances are that you’ve had plenty by the end of it. And just when you think spring is around the corner, another cold front zips through. It’s crucial to stay in front of your furnace service, even during the last weeks of the winter, because you really never know when you are going to require it next.
Throughout this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might offer the best 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 couple of things to keep in mind when deciding which humidifier to get for your home:
- Cost – of course you want to think about the price, but don’t forget to consider the operating and maintenance costs that accompany a new humidifier, too. There are various levels of efficiency that each humidifier runs 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 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 store. This number can typically be determined by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Recognizing this number and making sure that it matches the needs of your home will help determine what size humidifier is perfect for you. Our professionals can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can sometimes impact the ideal product to choose.
