Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Manassas Park Home02/04/2016 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 happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop. You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to keep in mind when doing your research: 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 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home. Cost – this may be apparent, but consider more than just the cost 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Woody's Sudden Service Inc, 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 produce 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 go in to 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.
