Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Upland Home02/04/2016 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 guess what’s going to occur 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 consistently. You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to remember 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 give you, so you’ll want to ensure that number meets your home’s needs. You can figure out that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our pros 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 obvious, but consider more than just the purchase price 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 select from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Klaus & Sons Heating & 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 endorse whole-home humidifiers is because they give 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 host of factors that decide which humidifier is right 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.
