It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty 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 begins being cold all the time.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few crucial things to remember 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 normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, so you’ll want to make sure 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this may be obvious, but consider more than just the expense 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
