Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Scottsboro Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold nonstop. You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to keep in mind when doing your searching: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important 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 make sure that number is what 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 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 might be evident, but consider more than just the cost 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 select from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Southern Heating & Cooling 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 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 personal, there are a host of factors that determine 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 contact us if you have any questions.
