Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Safford Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed 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 couple crucial 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 right size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to ensure 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 obvious, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At B&D Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the best 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 give 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 personal, there are a number 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions.
