Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Albuquerque Home02/04/2016 It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally switches 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 couple key things to take note of when doing your looking: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial 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 be sure that number matches up with 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 pros 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 could be obvious, 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 associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can select from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Desert Suns Heating & Cooling, 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 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 different, there are a host of factors that go in to which humidifier is right 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.
