Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Rockford Home

The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how gentle or brutal the season is, chances are that you’ve had plenty by the end of it. And just when you think spring is almost here, another cold front zips through. It’s critical to stay ahead of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to need it next.

Through this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might offer the best 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 healthy in the wintertime. Here are a number of things to keep in mind when choosing which humidifier to purchase 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 numerous levels of efficiency that each humidifier functions on, just like 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 right choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is different, but all will usually 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. Recognizing this number and making sure that it matches the needs of your home will help determine what size humidifier is right for you. Our professionals can also help you consider the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the top product to choose.
