It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had your fair share 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 done when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important things to take note of when doing your research:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the correct 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 ensure 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 might be obvious, 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 come 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 going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Gilray Heating and Cooling, we aim to provide the best 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 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 recognize 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 715-301-0727.
