It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important 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 correct size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to be sure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can figure out 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 might be obvious, 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 go 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 be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Olde Towne Heating & Air, we aim to provide the best solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we like whole-home humidifiers is because they give 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 personal, there are a host of factors that go in to which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also know that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 843-485-0967.
