Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Columbia Home

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain 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 think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two crucial 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 appropriate size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, so you’ll want to be sure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can find 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 may be apparent, but consider more than just the expense 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can choose from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Alltemp Comfort Services LLC, 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 it an easy decision.

While each scenario is personal, there are a number of factors that decide which humidifier is ideal 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.
