It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on 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 flips the switch to being cold consistently.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to keep in mind 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 usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to be sure that number is what 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this might be evident, but consider more than just the expense 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can select from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Smyth Air Conditioning Inc, we aim to provide the ideal 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 it an easy decision.
While each scenario is unique, there are a number of factors that determine which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 561-533-6066 .
