Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your West Valley Home02/04/2016It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure 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 remember when doing your research: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial 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 matches up with 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 pros 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 might be apparent, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 degrees of efficiency that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Select Comfort System Heating & Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the ideal solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we stand by whole-home humidifiers is because they produce 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 host of factors that go in to which humidifier is right 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.
