It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to guess 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 switches to being cold all the time.
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 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 typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to be sure that number matches up with 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this could be evident, but consider more than just the expense 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Temperature Doctors Heating & Cooling, Inc, 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 produce 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 host 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at (815)914-6197.
