It’s safe to say that even with the weird 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 make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently.
You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few key things to take note of when doing your research:
- 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 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 is what 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this may 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 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 purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling, we aim to provide the greatest solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we endorse 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 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 614-451-0846.
