Choosing the Right Whole-Home Humidifier for Your Furnace

It won’t be long before we are flipping our thermostats to provide us warmer air and make our homes nice and cozy during the cooler months. And warmer air can result in drier air that can impact our overall health. You may have never thought about monitoring humidity levels in your house, or maybe you’re attempting 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 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 during the heating season. There are more up-front costs to start, 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 shopping for a whole-home humidifier. 

  • Size—The size and capacity of a humidifier is based on gallons per day of operation. One way to find out 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 you will need and be a guide as you review your options. 
  • Budget—There are initial costs when purchasing the humidifier equipment, but it’s important to also recognize 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. 

All homes and families are different. Our professionals at Norrell Service Experts can give you a home health report to help you pick which humidifier is best 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 rest easy during the winter and that you have the support you need to maintain proper indoor air quality.
