Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Bloomfield Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to predict 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 begins being cold nonstop.

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 research:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will normally 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 pros 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 evident, 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 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 choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Stanford Heating & Cooling, 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 determine which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also understand that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 812-825-8695.
