Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your West Palm Beach Home02/04/2016 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 approaching, another cold front zips through. It’s important to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the conclusion of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to require it next.

Humidifiers offer important humidity to your house during the cold, dry air of the winter and can help keep you well in the wintertime.

There are different levels of efficiency that each humidifier operates on, similar to 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 right choice. Size – each humidifier is unique, but all will typically have a number that shows the gallons per day that it can store. This number can usually be calculated 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 indicate what size humidifier is best for you.
