Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Ridgedale and the Branson area Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold all the time. You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to take note of when doing your searching: 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 usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to make sure that number is what 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 impact 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 about 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 degrees of efficiency that you can select from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Branson HVAC, LLC, 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 it an easy decision. While each scenario is unique, there are a variety of factors that decide 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.
