It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two crucial things to keep in mind when doing your research:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to be sure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can determine that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our experts also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this could be apparent, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are a number of efficiency levels that you can select from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Air Commander's Heating & Air Conditioning Co., we aim to provide the ideal solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we endorse whole-home humidifiers is because they provide effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making its addition an easy one.
While each scenario is different, there are a host of factors that determine which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 863-216-2923.
