Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Odessa 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 predict what’s going to occur 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 consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple crucial 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 right 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 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 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 might be apparent, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through 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 pick from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Redhawk Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 personal, there are a host 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 contact us if you have any questions.
