Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Middletown 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 take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to 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 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 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 be sure that number is what your home’s needs. You can find 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 affect the product best suited for your home. Cost – this may be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Schagrin Gas Company, we aim to provide the ideal 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 the decision easy. While each scenario is unique, there are a number of factors that go in to 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.
