Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Wisconsin Rapids 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 guess what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold all the time.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important things to remember when doing your looking:

  • 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 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 determine 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 may be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that go with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency 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 variety 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 reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 715-301-0256.
