The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how light or heavy the season is, chances are that you’ve had plenty by the end of it. And just when you think spring is approaching, another cold front zips through.

Through this time of changing weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might provide the ideal opportunity to get a humidifier for your home.

You will want to think about the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to make sure that your investing in the right choice.
- Size – each humidifier is unique, but all will commonly have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can store. This number can generally be calculated by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Identifying this number and making sure that it corresponds to the needs of your home will help indicate what size humidifier is perfect for you.
