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 guess what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold consistently.
You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple crucial things to keep in mind when doing your research:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important to have a system that is the right size for your home. You will typically 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 is what your home’s needs. You can determine 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this might be evident, 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 come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At J.L. Brady Company LLC, we aim to provide the ideal 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 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 unique, there are a variety of factors that go in to which humidifier is ideal 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. Give us a call at 309-517-7511.
