The winter is always unpredictable, but no matter how light or heavy the season is, chances are that you’ve had a sufficient amount by the end of it. And just when you think spring is approaching, another cold front comes through. It’s important to stay on top of your furnace service, even during the end of the winter, because you honestly never know when you are going to need it next.
Through this time of varying weather, the air and moisture are also in constant flux, which might offer the ideal opportunity to capitalize on a humidifier for your home. Humidifiers offer important humidity to your house during the chilly, dry air of the winter and can help keep you well in the wintertime. Here are a few things to remember when determining which humidifier to get for your home:
- Cost – of course, you want to think about the price, but don’t forget to take into account the operating and maintenance costs that come with a new humidifier, too. There are numerous levels of efficiency that each humidifier operates on, not unlike other heating and cool equipment. You will want to think about the needs of your home’s humidity as well as your budget to guarantee that you’re investing in the right choice.
- Size – each humidifier is different, but all will usually have a number that shows the gallons per day that it can hold. This number can typically be determined by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Recognizing this number and making sure that it agrees with the needs of your home will help indicate what size humidifier is perfect for you. Our technicians can also help you think about the insulation in your home, which can occasionally impact the best product to choose.
If you’re still confused about which humidifier to get for your home, our experts at Temp Air System Inc. often advocate for a whole-home humidifier. They deliver the most reliable results throughout your entire home and offer you the most bang for your buck. The coolest part is that it gets completely integrated into your current system, making the installation and maintenance straightforward for long-term use.
Every home is different, naturally, and there are a variety of factors that one can contemplate before making a final decision on the ideal humidifier. They aren’t considered as much as furnaces are, even though they are just as important, so we appreciate it if you have more questions or concerns that you might want to run by our pros before deciding.
