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 guess 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 switches to being cold nonstop.
You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to take note of when doing your looking:
- 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 provide, so you’ll want to be sure that number meets 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 apparent, 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 choose from, so make certain that you’re choosing 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 unique, there are a number of factors that go in to which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also understand 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 503-663-8033.
