Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Humble Home02/04/2016 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 take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently. You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to remember when doing your searching: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the correct size for your home. You will normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to make sure 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 team of professionals 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 through 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 degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Arrings A/C & Heating, we aim to provide the best 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 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 different, there are a number of factors that go in to 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions.
