Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Heflin Home

Air Quality
Cooling
Heating

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally flips the switch to 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 remember when doing your research:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the right 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 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 may be obvious, 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 best 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 it an easy decision.

While each scenario is unique, there are a variety of factors that go in to 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 256-270-1196.
