Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Bloomington Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop. You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two crucial things to take note of when doing your looking: 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 provide, so you’ll want to ensure that number matches up with 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 team of professionals 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 could 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 associated 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 All Seasons Heating & A/C Co, 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 produce 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 personal, there are a number 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 contact us if you have any questions.
