Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Genoa 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 predict what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service performed 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 a few crucial 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 right size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, 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 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 might be evident, 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 varying degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Assured Appliance and Heating & Air, we aim to provide the best 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 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 different, there are a number of factors that determine which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 847-306-8990.
