Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Oxford Home

The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how manageable or intense the season is, chances are that you’ve had quite enough by the end of it. And just when you think spring is almost here, another cold front whisks through. It’s critical to stay in front of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you really never know when you are going to have to use it next.

Throughout this time of changing weather, the air and moisture are also in continual flux, which might provide the best opportunity to invest in a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers provide important humidity to your house during the brisk, dry air of the winter and can help keep you in good health in the wintertime. Here are a couple of things to recall when deciding 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 go with a new humidifier, too. There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier runs on, similar to 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 distinct, but all will usually have a number that indicates the gallons per day that it can hold. This number can generally be calculated by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Finding this number and making sure that it matches the needs of your home will help determine what size humidifier is best for you. Our technicians can also help you consider the insulation in your home, which can sometimes impact the ideal product to choose.
