It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to keep in mind when doing your research:
- 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 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 figure 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 affect the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this may be apparent, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that come 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 choosing 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 it an easy decision.
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.
