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 guess what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches 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 remember when doing your research:
- 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 typically 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 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this might be obvious, 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 varying degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating, we aim to provide the best solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier.
