The winter is always erratic, 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 around the corner, another cold front comes through. It’s important 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.

During this time of shifting 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 offer 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 few things to recall when determining which humidifier to purchase 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 go with 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 distinct, but all will typically have a number that indicates the gallons per day that it can store. This number can generally be calculated by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Identifying 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 technicians can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the best product to choose.
