It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold all the time.
You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to take note of when doing your research:
- 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 usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to ensure that number meets your home’s needs. You can determine that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our team of professionals 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 might 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 efficiencies that you can pick from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc., we aim to provide the best solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we like whole-home humidifiers is because they produce 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 number of factors that determine 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. Give us a call at 803-265-4208.
