Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Heflin Home

February 04, 2016

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 occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain 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 a few key things to keep in mind 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 normally 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 meets 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 play a role in determining 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 varying degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Bain Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc, we aim to provide the ideal 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 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 variety of factors that go in to 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 256-270-1196.
