Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Reeds Spring Home02/04/2016 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 predict what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold all the time. You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few key things to remember when doing your looking: 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 usually 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 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 pros 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 apparent, 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 come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc, 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 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.
