Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Augusta 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 put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold consistently. You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple crucial things to keep in mind when doing your looking: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to make sure that number is what your home’s needs. You can determine 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 might be evident, but consider more than just the purchase price 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 degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Sig Cox Heating and Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the greatest 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 its addition an easy one. While each scenario is unique, there are a host of factors that decide which humidifier is correct for you and your home.
