Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Saint Louis Home

The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how light or heavy the season is, chances are that you’ve had plenty by the end of it. And just when you think spring is approaching, another cold front whisks through. It’s important to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you really never know when you are going to have to use it next.

During this time of shifting weather, the air and moisture are also in continual flux, which might offer the ideal opportunity to capitalize on a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers create important humidity to your house during the cold, dry air of the winter and can help keep you in good health in the wintertime. Here are a few things to keep in mind 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 think about the operating and maintenance costs that come 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 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 unique, 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. Identifying this number and making sure that it corresponds to the needs of your home will help indicate what size humidifier is right for you. Our professionals can also help you take into account the insulation in your home, which can often impact the top product to choose.
