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 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 consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important 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 normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to ensure that number is what 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 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 might be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through 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 select from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Halverson Brothers Inc, 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 give effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making its addition an easy one.
While each scenario is different, 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 reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 715-352-4052.
