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 guess what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold consistently.
You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to remember 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 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 experts 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 might be apparent, but consider more than just the purchase price 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 pick from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Forster 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 it an easy decision.
While each scenario is different, there are a variety of factors that decide 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 reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 530-885-8081.
