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 done when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold nonstop.
You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few key things to keep in mind when doing your research:
- Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the right 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 determine 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 affect 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 ponder the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can select from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At Luikart Heating & Cooling, 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 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 decide which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also understand that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 740-200-5591.
