It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to being cold all the time.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two crucial 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 right 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 be sure that number is what your home’s needs. You can find out 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 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 go 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 purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Total Comfort, we aim to provide the greatest 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 it an easy decision.
While each scenario is personal, there are a number of factors that decide 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 contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 201-268-5663.
