Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Tucson Home

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold consistently.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to remember when doing your research:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important to have a system that is the appropriate 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 ensure that number meets your home’s needs. You can determine 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 affect the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be apparent, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 efficiencies that you can select from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Ambient Air, 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 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 number of factors that determine which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also recognize 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 520-201-3871.
