Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Hickory Home

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold all the time.

You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to take note of when doing your searching:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important 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 be 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be evident, but consider more than just the expense 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 degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Climate Control Systems, we aim to provide the ideal 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 provide 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 personal, there are a variety of factors that decide which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also know 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 828-283-0369.
