Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your McMurray Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird 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 make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed 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 key things to keep in mind when doing your searching:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important 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 give you, 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this might be obvious, but consider more than just the expense 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 select from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Kowalski Heating & Cooling, 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 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 personal, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also know that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
