Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Crystal Lake Home02/04/2016 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 flips the switch to being cold nonstop. You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to remember when doing your looking: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to ensure 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 pros 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 evident, but consider more than just the purchase price 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Campbell's Tempracure, we aim to provide the greatest 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 it an easy decision. While each scenario is personal, 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.
