Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your York Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the weird 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 be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold all the time. You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to keep in mind when doing your searching: 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 normally 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 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 affect the product best suited for your home. Cost – this may 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 that go with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can select from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Strine's Heating & A/C Inc, 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 provide 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 variety of factors that decide 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions.
