Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Gresham Home

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 sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop.

You may also want to think about 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 crucial to have a system that is the correct size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to make sure 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 experts 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 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 associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Honke Heating & AC, we aim to provide the ideal 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 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 different, there are a number of factors that go in to which humidifier is ideal 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. Give us a call at 503-376-8806.
