Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Bountiful Home02/04/2016 The winter is always changing, but no matter how manageable or heavy 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 critical to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the conclusion of the winter, because you really never know when you are going to require it next. During this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in continual flux, which might provide the best opportunity to get a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers create important humidity to your house during the chilly, dry air of the winter and can help keep you in good health in the wintertime. Here are a couple of things to remember when deciding which humidifier to purchase for your home: Cost – of course you want to take into account 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, similar to other heating and cool equipment. You will want to consider 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 different, but all will typically have a number that shows 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. Identifying this number and making sure that it agrees with the needs of your home will help determine what size humidifier is right for you. Our professionals can also help you consider the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the ideal product to choose.
