Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Alice Home

February 04, 2016

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop.

You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important things to keep in mind when doing your looking:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will usually 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 experts 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 could be apparent, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are a number of efficiency levels that you can choose from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Rescue Heating & Air , we aim to provide the best 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 produce 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 different, there are a variety of factors that decide which humidifier is right 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. Give us a call at 361-265-4371.
