Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Columbia 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 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 switches to being cold consistently.

You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few crucial things to remember when doing your research:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical 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 make sure that number meets 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 affect the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be obvious, 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 varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Watts Electric & A/C Inc, 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 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 unique, there are a number of factors that determine which humidifier is correct 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 601-736-7362.
