Whole Home Humidifiers vs. Portable Humdifiers

It’s true, humidifiers offer us a lot of benefits us in the winter. So now the only thing left to decide is how do you choose between a whole home humidifier and a portable humidifier?  Whole home humidifiers are a built-in part of your steam heat or forced air furnace system, and portable humidifiers are not built-in. They are small units usually found at a local hardware store, and then placed in various rooms around the home. Still wondering which one you should choose? Well here are three reasons why you should choose a whole home humidifier:

  1. In order to work, portable humidifiers need to constantly have a supply of water. This means that you need to keep filling them up on a regular basis. On the other hand, whole home humidifiers are much lower maintenance and only need to have a pad changed once a year.
  2. A whole home humidifier regulates the humidity through your whole home, but numerous portable humidifiers would be needed to humidify the entire home.
  3. Portable humidifiers can be noisy and since they sit out in the open they can also be knocked over. This would make a mess.

Now, portable humidifiers can still help you out but for maximum comfort and convenience, the whole home humidifier is the way to go. To learn more about which whole home humidifier would be best in your here.  If you have any questions, please contact A.B. May!
