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 put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make 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 crucial things to remember when doing your research:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important to have a system that is the correct 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 be sure that number matches up with 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
- Cost – this might be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 efficiencies that you can select from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Dave's Diversified Services, we aim to provide the ideal solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we endorse whole-home humidifiers is because they produce 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 host of factors that determine 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 540-369-3971.
