It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the 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 make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few key things to take note of when doing your looking:
- 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 offer, so you’ll want to ensure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can determine 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this could be apparent, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 choose from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Marcos AC & Heating, 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 the decision easy.
While each scenario is personal, there are a number 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 reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 713-469-3357.
