The winter is always changing, 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 almost here, another cold front comes through. It’s critical to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you truly never know when you are going to need it next.
During this time of shifting weather, the air and moisture are also in continuous flux, which might provide the best opportunity to invest in 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 few things to keep in mind when choosing which humidifier to purchase for your home:
- Cost – of course you want to take into account the price, but don’t forget to think about the operating and maintenance costs that come with a new humidifier, too. There are numerous levels of efficiency that each humidifier functions on, just like 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 unique, but all will typically have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can retain. This number can usually be estimated 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 determine what size humidifier is best for you. Our professionals can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can often impact the top product to choose.
