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 guess what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold consistently.
You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to keep in mind when doing your searching:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the correct 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 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 apparent, but consider more than just the expense 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 choose from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At I-Deal HVAC, 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 give 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 different, there are a number of factors that go in to which humidifier is right 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 505-445-1250.
