The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how gentle 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 around the corner, another cold front zips through. It’s critical to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the conclusion of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to have to use it next.
During this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in continual flux, which might offer the perfect opportunity to invest in a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers provide important humidity to your house during the chilly, dry air of the winter and can help keep you well in the wintertime.

- Cost – of course you want to consider 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, not unlike 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 make sure that your investing in the right choice.
- Size – each humidifier is different, but all will usually 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. Identifying 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 sometimes impact the ideal product to choose.
