Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Auburn Home

Air Quality
Cooling
Heating

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 put our finger on what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service done 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 few key things to take note of when doing your looking:

  • 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 usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, 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 pros 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 may be obvious, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can choose from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Forster Heating, we aim to provide the best 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 number of factors that decide which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also understand that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 530-885-8081 or set up an appointment with us online and we’ll be more than happy to help get you on the path to a more comfortable home.
