Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Plainfield Home

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 occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally begins being cold consistently.

You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to remember when doing your research:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the appropriate 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 figure out 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this might 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 pick from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At PWA Heating & Cooling Inc, 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 it an easy decision.

While each scenario is personal, there are a host 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 contact us if you have any questions.
