There’s nothing worse than waking up with itchy skin, a dry nose, and parched for thirst because your mouth feels like it’s full of cotton. If you’re in the market for best whole house humidifiers to combat the dry air in your home, stay tuned! We’ve done our research to put together these whole house humidifier reviews. But before we get started, let’s take a closer look at some of the key features you should know about.
Coverage: Coverage matters. If you get a humidifier that’s too small for your space, it’s just going to keep blowing away without really having much effect. Make sure you get the right fit for your home’s square footage!
Size: The dimensions of the humidifier will tell you if the one you choose will fit in your space. Some are quite compact making them great for small spaces.
Runtime: Runtime varies slightly depending on how much the machine needs to run. The longer it’s going without stopping, the shorter the runtime. Generally, though, these are all capable of running for 24 hours. One can go up to 55 hours!
Color: You don’t want your humidifier to stand out or interfere with your decor. Check out this spec to see what color it is so you know if it will work for your space.
Method: All but one of these work through evaporation. Water is heated until it turns into a vapor which is then blown out into the air of your home. This is done either from the unit itself or through your vents.
Warranty: A great warranty makes all the difference. The furnace humidifiers that you actually have to install into your HVAC system are especially technical. Make sure you know what’s covered in your warranty and, more importantly, what isn’t covered.
Now that we looked at some tips from our whole house humidifier buying guide, let’s keep moving! You’ll find console and furnace humidifiers reviews in our top ten so there’s something for everyone.
