Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Greencastle Home02/04/2016 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 occur 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 think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to remember when doing your searching: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important to have a system that is the right size for your home. You will usually 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 matches up with 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 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 could be obvious, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 efficiencies that you can choose from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Premier HVAC Services LLC, 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 produce 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 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions.
