Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Shelby Township 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 guess what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed 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 two key things to take note of when doing your looking:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to ensure that number meets 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 pros 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 could be apparent, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 select from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Mr. Air Repair , we aim to provide the ideal solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we like 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 unique, there are a number of factors that determine 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions.
