Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Alliance Home

The winter is always unpredictable, 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 around the corner, another cold front zips through. It’s important 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 have to use it next.

Through this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in continuous flux, which might provide the ideal opportunity to capitalize on a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers provide important humidity to your house during the cold, dry air of the winter and can help keep you well in the wintertime. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when determining 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 go with a new humidifier, too. There are various levels of efficiency that each humidifier functions on, just like other heating and cool equipment. You will want to take into account the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to make sure that your investing in the right choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is distinct, but all will usually have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can hold. This number can typically be calculated 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 perfect for you. Our professionals can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can often impact the best product to choose.

If you’re still stumped about which humidifier to get for your home, our professionals at Jack's Refrigeration Heating and Cooling often advocate for a whole-home humidifier.
