Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Port Saint Lucie Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold all the time. You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important 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 right size for your home. You will usually 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 find 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 impact the product best suited for your home. Cost – this could be obvious, 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can choose from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Custom Air Systems Inc, 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 give 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 unique, there are a host of factors that determine 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 contact us if you have any questions.
