Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Jefferson City Home

The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how light or heavy the season is, chances are that you’ve had a sufficient amount by the end of it. And just when you think spring is around the corner, another cold front comes through. It’s critical to stay ahead of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you really 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 constant flux, which might provide the perfect opportunity to invest in a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers offer 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 few things to keep in mind when choosing which humidifier to get for your home:

  • Cost – of course you want to take into account the price, but don’t forget to take into account the operating and maintenance costs that accompany a new humidifier, too. There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier operates 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 make sure that your investing in the best choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is different, but all will commonly have a number that indicates 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. Identifying this number and making sure that it agrees with the needs of your home will help establish what size humidifier is right for you. Our professionals can also help you consider the insulation in your home, which can sometimes impact the best product to choose.
