Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Wisconsin Rapids Home02/04/2016 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 predict what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold all the time. You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to keep in mind when doing your looking: 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 normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to be sure that number is what your home’s needs. You can determine 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 evident, 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 go with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are a number of efficiency levels that you can select from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc, 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 give effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making the decision easy. While each scenario is unique, there are a variety of factors that go in to which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
