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 make sure that you’ve had furnace service performed 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 couple 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 typically 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 play a role in determining 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 think through 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 choose from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At ACS Heating and 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 like whole-home humidifiers is because they give 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 variety of factors that determine which humidifier is correct 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. Give us a call at 770-450-1539.
