The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how manageable 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 comes through. It’s important to stay in front of your furnace service, even during the last weeks of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to require it next.
During this time of changing weather, the air and moisture are also in continuous flux, which might offer the ideal 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 in good health in the wintertime.

- 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, similar to other heating and cool equipment. You will want to think about 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 typically have a number that shows the gallons per day that it can retain. This number can generally be determined by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling.
