Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Abilene Home

The winter is always erratic, but no matter how light 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 crucial to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the conclusion of the winter, because you truly never know when you are going to need it next.

Through this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in continuous flux, which might provide the ideal opportunity to get 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 healthy in the wintertime. Here are a couple of things to recall when deciding which humidifier to get for your home:

  • Cost – of course you want to consider the price, but don’t forget to consider the operating and maintenance costs that come with a new humidifier, too. There are numerous 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 ensure that your investing in the best choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is distinct, but all will commonly have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can retain. 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 agrees with the needs of your home will help establish what size humidifier is best for you. Our technicians can also help you take into account the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the top product to choose.
