The winter is always erratic, but no matter how manageable or heavy 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 comes through. It’s crucial to stay in front of your furnace service, even during the last weeks of the winter, because you truly never know when you are going to require it next.
Throughout this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might deliver the best opportunity to get 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 healthy in the wintertime.

- Cost – of course you want to think about the price, but don’t forget to think about the operating and maintenance costs that accompany a new humidifier, too. There are numerous 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 guarantee that your investing in the right choice.
- Size – each humidifier is distinct, but all will commonly have a number that indicates the gallons per day that it can store. This number can typically be calculated by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Recognizing this number and making sure that it agrees with the needs of your home will help determine what size humidifier is perfect for you. Our experts can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can often impact the ideal product to choose.
