It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently.
You may also want to consider 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 crucial to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, 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 pros also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can affect 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 think through the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At WM J Kraus & Son, 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 unique, there are a variety of factors that decide 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 319-229-2318.
