Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Florissant Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to happen 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 consistently. 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 looking: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical 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 provide, so you’ll want to be sure that number meets 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home. Cost – this could 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 come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At B & B Heating & Cooling, 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 provide 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 host of factors that go in to which humidifier is right 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.
