Choosing the Right Whole-Home Humidifier for Your Furnace

It won’t be long before we are adjusting our thermostats to offer us warmer air and make our homes nice and cozy during the winter. And warmer air equates to drier air that can impact our overall health. You may have never thought about monitoring humidity levels in your home, or maybe you’re attempting 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 through the heating season. There are more up-front costs to start, but there is less maintenance, lower energy costs and mold prevention down the road. 

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

  • Size—The humidifier’s size and capacity is based on gallons per day of operation. One way to determine what size you should get is to take your total floor area and multiply it by the height of your 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 consider how much money will go into operation and maintenance. There are several models that can help meet the needs in your home while keeping to a budget you are comfortable with. 

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