Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Hamilton Home

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 guess what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop.

You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to take note of when doing your searching:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important 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 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 experts 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 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 pick from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC, 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 number of factors that decide which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also know 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.
