Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Mount Pleasant Home

It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold all the time.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few crucial things to remember 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 normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, so you’ll want to make sure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can find out that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our team of professionals 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 may be apparent, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that go with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
