And just when you think spring is almost here, another cold front zips through.

You will want to take into account the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to ensure that your investing in the right choice.
  • Size – each humidifier is unique, but all will usually have a number that dictates the gallons per day that it can hold.
