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 take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold consistently.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two crucial things to keep in mind 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 offer, so you’ll want to be sure that number is what 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 experts 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 may be evident, 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 select from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Farnell Mechanical, 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 provide 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 personal, there are a number of factors that decide which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also know 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 334-524-2458.
