It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winters. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple of important things to remember when doing your research:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will normally see a number that will tell you about the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, so you’ll want to make sure that number is what your home needs. You can determine that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our pros also take into account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can impact the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this could be apparent but consider more than just the cost 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 varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget, and humidity needs.
At Air Houston Mechanical LLC, 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 that they give 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 variety of factors that determine which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also understand 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 (832) 957-9332.
