Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Mount Hope Home

February 04, 2016

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had more than enough 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 sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few crucial things to remember when doing your searching:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial 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 give you, so you’ll want to be sure that number matches up with 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 affect the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be obvious, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that go with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so make sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Appalachian Heating, 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 give 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 number 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 reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 304-707-0600.
