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 put our finger on what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally switches to being cold all the time.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important 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 correct 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this may be apparent, but consider more than just the purchase price 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 varying degrees of efficiency that you can select from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Central Heating & Plumbing, 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 host of factors that go in to 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 724-401-1843.
