The winter is always erratic, but no matter how light 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 almost here, another cold front zips through. It’s important to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the last weeks of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to require it next.
During this time of changing weather, the air and moisture are also in continuous flux, which might offer the perfect opportunity to capitalize on a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers create 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 buy for your home:
- Cost – of course you want to think about 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 operates on, similar to other heating and cool equipment. You will want to think about the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to make sure that your investing in the best choice.
- Size – each humidifier is distinct, but all will typically have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can hold. 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 indicate what size humidifier is perfect for you. Our professionals can also help you take into account the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the ideal product to choose.
