Choosing the Right Whole-Home Humidifier for Your Furnace

It won’t be long before we are switching our thermostats to deliver us warmer air and make our homes nice and cozy during the winter. And warmer air equates to drier air that can influence our overall health. You may have never considered monitoring humidity levels in your home, or maybe you’re trying to find just the perfect balance. We’ve talked about the benefits of a whole-home humidifier from reducing the chances of getting sick to helping with your skin. But how do you know which system is the best for you? 

If you aren’t familiar, a whole-home humidifier utilizes water directly from your water supply and the water panel only needs to be changed a couple times through the heating season. There are more up-front costs to begin, but there is less maintenance, lower energy costs and mold prevention in the long-run. 

There are a couple things you’ll need to consider when looking at a whole-home humidifier. 

  • Size—The humidifier’s capacity and size is based on gallons per day of operation. One way to decide what size you want is to take your total floor area and multiply it by the height of your home’s ceiling. This will help determine how many gallons per hour is needed and be a guide as you assess your options. 
  • Budget—There are initial expenses when purchasing the humidifier equipment, but it’s important to also consider how much money will go into operation and maintenance. There are many models that can help meet the needs in your home while keeping to a budget you are comfortable with. 

Each house is different. Our experts at Stevenson Service Experts can give you a home health report to help you select which humidifier is best for your home. And our assessment will ensure you are getting the best solution to fit your existing HVAC system. We want to make sure you can rest comfortably during the cooler season and that you have the support you need to maintain proper indoor air quality.
