Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Selbyville Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to take place 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 think through 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 critical 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 provide, so you’ll want to ensure that number matches up with 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 experts 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 might be evident, 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 that go with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Red Dog Cooling, Heating, & Plumbing, 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 provide effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making the decision easy. While each scenario is personal, there are a variety of factors that determine 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 contact us if you have any questions.
