It’s safe to say that even with the weird 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 certain that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally begins being cold consistently.
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 be sure that number meets your home’s needs. You can determine 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 cost 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 varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Stanford Heating & Cooling, we aim to provide the ideal 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 it an easy decision.
While each scenario is unique, there are a number of factors that determine which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also know 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 812-825-8695.
