Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Homer Glen Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop. You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to keep in mind when doing your searching: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important 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 provide, so you’ll want to make sure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can figure 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 impact the product best suited for your home. Cost – this could 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 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 purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Pinnacle HVAC LLC, we aim to provide the greatest 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 its addition an easy one. While each scenario is different, there are a host of factors that go in to which humidifier is ideal 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.
