Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Metro Atlanta Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty 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 performed when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop. You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few crucial things to take note of when doing your searching: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the appropriate 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 ensure that number meets your home’s needs. You can determine that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our team of professionals 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 apparent, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 choose from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At ACS Inc, we aim to provide the greatest 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 its addition an easy one. While each scenario is unique, there are a number of factors that determine which humidifier is right for you and your home.
