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 done when the weather finally begins being cold consistently.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple crucial 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 appropriate size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, so you’ll want to make sure that number meets your home’s needs. You can figure 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 apparent, 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 go 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 Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the best 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 its addition an easy one.
While each scenario is different, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also recognize 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 734-284-1224.
