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 make sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop.
You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few key things to remember when doing your searching:
- 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 normally 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 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 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 could 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can select from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Gordon Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the ideal 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 its addition an easy one.
While each scenario is different, there are a host of factors that determine which humidifier is correct 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. Give us a call at 850-250-0335.
