Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your St. Cloud Home

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold consistently.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to remember when doing your searching:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the right size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to ensure that number is what your home’s needs. You can find out that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our pros also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can affect the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are a number of efficiency levels that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Osceola Air, LLC, we aim to provide the greatest solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we like whole-home humidifiers is because they give effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making it an easy decision.

While each scenario is unique, there are a host of factors that go in to which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 407-477-6319.
