Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your the Rio Grande Valley Home

February 04, 2016

The winter is always erratic, but no matter how gentle 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 comes through. It’s important to stay in front of your furnace service, even during the last weeks of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to require it next.

During this time of changing weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might deliver the perfect opportunity to capitalize on a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers offer 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 remember when choosing which humidifier to buy for your home:

  • Cost – of course you want to consider the price, but don’t forget to take into account the operating and maintenance costs that come with a new humidifier, too. There are various levels of efficiency that each humidifier operates on, not unlike other heating and cool equipment. You will want to think about the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to guarantee that your investing in the right 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 usually 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 determine what size humidifier is best 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.
