Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Huffman 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 put our finger on what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold all the time.

You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to take note of 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 be sure that number matches up with 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 team of professionals also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can impact the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this may be obvious, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through 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 efficiencies that you can pick from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Air Houston Mechanical LLC, we aim to provide the greatest 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 produce 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 decide which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also recognize 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 832-777-1521.
