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 guess what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold nonstop.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few key things to remember when doing your searching:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the right 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 find 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this might be obvious, 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 associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can pick from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the ideal solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we stand by whole-home humidifiers is because they produce 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 personal, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is right 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 519-296-4437.
