Why Choose A Whole Home Humidifier?edit
We already know about the benefits that a humidifier can bring us in the winter, now the question is what’s the difference between a whole home humidifier and a portable humidifier? Whole home humidifiers are built in features as part of your forced air furnace or steam heat system while portable humidifiers are generally small units purchased at a local hardware store and then simply placed around the home out in the open. So why should you choose a whole home humidifier? Here’s why:
- Whole home humidifiers have pads that need to be changed only annually, while portable humidifiers need to be constantly refilled with water.
- A whole home humidifier can regulate the humidity throughout your entire home whereas multiple portable humidifiers would need to be purchased and placed in order to have the same effect.
- Portable humidifiers are noisy and they also run the risk of being able to be knocked over, which would create a wet mess.
So, there you have it. Though a portable humidifier is still helpful, in order to achieve the full convenient benefits of a humidifier it is a better idea to look into whole home humidifiers. For more information, contact Santa Fe Air!
