It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had more than enough 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 flips the switch 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 remember when doing your searching:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the right 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 be sure that number meets 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 might be evident, 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 come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can select from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At US Air Heating and Cooling, 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 give effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making the decision easy.
While each scenario is different, there are a number of factors that decide which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also understand 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 803-220-0761.
