Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Redford 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 predict what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold consistently. 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 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 normally 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 team of professionals also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can impact the product best suited for your home. Cost – this could be obvious, 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 pick from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Airtronic Heating & Cooling, we aim to provide the greatest 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 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 personal, there are a number of factors that decide which humidifier is correct for you and your home.
