Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Perry Home

It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had more than enough 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 switches to being cold consistently.

You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important 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 normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, so you’ll want to ensure 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 experts 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 apparent, but consider more than just the cost 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 select from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Gillman Heating and Air, 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 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 different, there are a variety of factors that decide 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 contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 478-202-3076.
