Choosing the Right Whole-Home Humidifier for Your Furnace

It won’t be long before we are adjusting our thermostats to deliver us warmer air and make our homes nice and cozy during the cooler months. And warmer air can result in drier air that can affect our overall health. You may have never thought about monitoring humidity levels in your house, or maybe you’re looking to find just the ideal 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 your house? 

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

There are a couple factors you’ll need to consider when purchasing a whole-home humidifier. 

  • Size—The humidifier’s size and capacity is based on gallons per day of operation. One way to decide what size you should get 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 necessary 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 acknowledge how much money will go into operation and maintenance. There are many models that can help meet the needs in your home while adhering to a budget you are comfortable with. 

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