It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold consistently.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to remember when doing your looking:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial 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 give you, so you’ll want to ensure 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this may be evident, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that go 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 Edington Heating & Cooling Inc, 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 different, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also understand 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 937-558-9478.
