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 predict what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be 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 research:
- 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 usually 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 obvious, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through 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 choose from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Phelps Heating & Cooling, we aim to provide the greatest 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 provide effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making the decision easy.
While each scenario is personal, there are a variety of factors that go in to which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 270-358-3167.
