Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Bossier City Home

February 04, 2016

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently.

You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important things to take note of 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 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 team of professionals also take in to account how tightly sealed and insulated your home is, as those factors can play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be obvious, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can select from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Central Aire Heating & A/C 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 endorse whole-home humidifiers is because they give effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making its addition an easy one.

While each scenario is personal, there are a host of factors that determine 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 contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 318-855-2326.
