Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Olathe Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop. You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to remember when doing your looking: 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 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 figure out that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our team of professionals 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 obvious, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 pick from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Polestar Plumbing, Heating & 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 endorse 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 personal, there are a number of factors that decide which humidifier is ideal 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.
