As autumn then winter begin to draw near it is definitely a reminder to to prepare the heating system to verify it is functioning the way it should. This is also a great opportunity to replace or clean the filter. This is also a good time to think about a humidifier. If you live in a dry climate you may even consider a full house humidifier that works with your HVAC system. If you don’t like the idea of a whole house humidifier you might merely choose a room humidifier that can be moved from room to room. See if cleaning a humidifier filter is an option or buy a replacement.

Utilizing a humidifier to keep the humidity in the air at an ideal range is healthy for a variety of reasons. It will make your home more comfortable, it will make the air feel warmer which can save money on utility bills, and it can help protect the wood furniture and floors in your household.
