Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Brighton Home

The winter is always erratic, 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 approaching, another cold front zips through. It’s crucial 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 changing weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might offer 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 well in the wintertime. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing which humidifier to purchase for your home:

  • Cost – of course you want to take into account the price, but don’t forget to consider the operating and maintenance costs that come with a new humidifier, too. There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier runs 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 ideal choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is distinct, but all will typically 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. Identifying this number and making sure that it corresponds to the needs of your home will help indicate what size humidifier is perfect for you. Our technicians can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can often impact the best product to choose.
