Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your St. Louis Home

The winter is always erratic, but no matter how gentle 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 approaching, another cold front whisks through. It’s critical to stay ahead of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you truly never know when you are going to have to use it next.

During this time of changing 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 chilly, dry air of the winter and can help keep you in good health in the wintertime. Here are a few 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 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 indicates 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. Finding this number and making sure that it corresponds to the needs of your home will help indicate what size humidifier is right for you.
