Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Monroe Home

February 04, 2016

The winter is always changing, but no matter how light or intense the season is, chances are that you’ve had plenty 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 on top of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to require it next.

Throughout this time of shifting weather, the air and moisture are also in continual flux, which might offer the perfect opportunity to capitalize on 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 in good health in the wintertime. Here are a number 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 consider the operating and maintenance costs that go with a new humidifier, too. There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier functions on, just like 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 right choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is unique, but all will commonly have a number that shows 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. Recognizing this number and making sure that it agrees with 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 often impact the top product to choose.
