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 put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to remember when doing your searching:
- 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 usually 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 is what 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 evident, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Discount Mechanical Heating & Plumbing Services, we aim to provide the best solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we stand by whole-home humidifiers is because they produce 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 number of factors that go in to which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also understand 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 907-202-9798.
