Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Rocky Mount Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop. You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few crucial things to remember when doing your looking: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the correct 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 make sure that number meets 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 affect the product best suited for your home. Cost – this may be evident, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 efficiencies that you can choose from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Davis Heating & Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the best 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 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 unique, there are a host of factors that decide which humidifier is ideal 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.
