Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Locust 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 sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally begins being cold all the time. You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few 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 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 make sure 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 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 might be obvious, but consider more than just the purchase price 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Dynamic Comfort Solutions, we aim to provide the best 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 give effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making its addition an easy one. While each scenario is personal, there are a number of factors that determine 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 reach out if you have any questions.
