It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold consistently.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to take note of when doing your looking:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to make 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 experts also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can impact the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this could be evident, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 select from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Speedy Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the ideal 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 produce effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making it an easy decision.
While each scenario is personal, there are a variety of factors that go in to which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 239-244-3439.
