Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Moline Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold all the time. You may also want to think through 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 critical 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 be sure 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 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 might be apparent, but consider more than just the expense 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At J.L. Brady Company LLC, we aim to provide the best solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we stand by whole-home humidifiers is because they produce effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making the decision easy. While each scenario is unique, there are a host of factors that decide which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
