Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Columbia Home

Air Quality
Cooling
Heating

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on 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 flips the switch to being cold nonstop.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to remember when doing your research:

  • 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 typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to ensure that number is what your home’s needs. You can determine 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 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 select from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Watts Electric & A/C Inc, 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 give 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 personal, there are a number of factors that determine which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 601-736-7362.
