Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Saint Marys Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold all the time.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple crucial things to take note of when doing your searching:

  • 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 matches up with 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 might be obvious, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 varying efficiencies that you can choose from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 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 unique, there are a host of factors that determine which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also know 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 912-208-2470.
