best humidifier or purifier for my area in SC

I live on Edisto Island, sc. I also live down a dirt road and have dogs, pigs, and a calf. We do have lots of humidity here most of the time. However in the cold months with the heat running, the air in the house gets very dry and the vents are on the ceiling. The dust in the house is horrible. I can dust a dresser and in less than 24 hours it is covered in dust. What is the best product for my situation? The house I have moved into is only 1000 sqft. Thanks for your input.

air purifier for dust all over house

Yes, dust in the winter can be terrible. First, I'd suggest cleaning your furnace filter every 6-8 weeks. This will help some.

Also, I'd suggest an Austin Air Purifier. You could get the Health Mate Jr, which covers 700 sq ft and would do an ok job in 1000 sq ft, since you don't need intense filtration for bad allergies or illnesses, just help with dust and overall health. The benefit to this air purifier is the cleanable filters, so you don't have to buy new ones all the time!
