Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Santee Home

The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how light 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 approaching, another cold front whisks through. It’s crucial 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 shifting weather, the air and moisture are also in continual flux, which might deliver the perfect opportunity to get a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers create 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 couple of things to remember when choosing which humidifier to buy for your home:

  • Cost – of course you want to consider 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 consider the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to guarantee that your investing in the ideal 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 determined 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 establish what size humidifier is right for you. Our technicians can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the best product to choose.
