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 almost here, another cold front whisks through. It’s critical to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to need it next.
Throughout this time of changing weather, the air and moisture are also in continuous flux, which might offer the perfect opportunity to invest in a humidifier for your home.

You will want to think about the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to guarantee that your investing in the best choice.
- Size – each humidifier is unique, but all will typically have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can store. This number can generally be calculated 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 indicate what size humidifier is best for you.
