Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your San Dimas 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 occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold nonstop. You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to remember when doing your searching: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will typically 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 is what 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 experts 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 might be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are a number of efficiency levels that you can select from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Energy Upgrades, Inc., we aim to provide the ideal 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 the decision easy. While each scenario is unique, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also know that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
