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 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 nonstop.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important things to take note of when doing your looking:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the correct size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to ensure 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 pros also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can affect the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this might be apparent, but consider more than just the cost 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 varying degrees of efficiency that you can pick from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At LTS Plumbing & Heating Inc., we aim to provide the ideal solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we like 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 unique, there are a number of factors that determine which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also know 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 570-648-0748.
