It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to guess 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 consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few crucial things to keep in mind when doing your searching:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important 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 make sure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can determine 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 affect 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 think about 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At TopTec Heating, Cooling, Plumbing & Electrical, we aim to provide the greatest 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 provide 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 host of factors that go in to which humidifier is right for you and your home.
