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 cooler months. And warmer air equates to drier air that can impact our overall health. You may have never thought about monitoring humidity levels in your house, or maybe you’re looking to find just the right balance. We’ve talked about the benefits of a whole-home humidifier from lowering the chances of getting sick to helping with your skin. But how do you know which system is the best for your family? 

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 throughout the heating season. There are more up-front costs to get started, but there is less maintenance, lower energy costs and mold prevention in the long-run. 

There are a couple factors you’ll need to consider when shopping for 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 consider 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 a variety of models that can help meet the needs in your home while adhering to a budget you are comfortable with. 

Every home and family is different. Our team at Stevenson Service Experts can give you a home health report to help you pick which humidifier will work 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 relax during the colder weather and that you have the support you need to maintain proper indoor air quality.
