Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Richardson 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 guess 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 all the time. You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple crucial things to take note of 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 provide, so you’ll want to be 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 experts 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 evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through 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 varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Hammack Service Company, we aim to provide the best 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 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 personal, there are a number of factors that go in to which humidifier is ideal 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.
