Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Carson City Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop. You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important 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 correct size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to make 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 could be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Anderson Heating & A/C, we aim to provide the greatest 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 its addition an easy one. While each scenario is unique, there are a number of factors that go in to which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also know that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
