February 04, 2016

The winter is always changing, but no matter how gentle or intense the season is, chances are that you’ve had a sufficient amount by the end of it. And just when you think spring is approaching, another cold front whisks 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.

Through this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might offer 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 well in the wintertime.

  • 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 numerous levels of efficiency that each humidifier runs 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 ensure that your investing in the best choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is distinct, but all will commonly have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can store. This number can generally be estimated 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 establish what size humidifier is right for you. Our technicians can also help you take into account the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the best product to choose.
