It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had plenty 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 begins being cold nonstop.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to remember 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 normally 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 meets 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 could be obvious, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 select from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc, 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 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 different, 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 contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 715-301-0256.
