Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Dallas 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 put our finger on what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently. You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to keep in mind when doing your looking: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the right 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 make sure that number is what your home’s needs. You can determine 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 may be evident, but consider more than just the purchase price 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 choose from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas, 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 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 unique, 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 reach out if you have any questions.
