Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your South Beloit and Belvidere Home

February 04, 2016

It’s safe to say that even with the weird 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 be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally switches to being cold all the time.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to take note of when doing your research:

  • 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 ensure 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this may be apparent, 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 associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, we aim to provide the best 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 it an easy decision.

While each scenario is personal, there are a number of factors that go in to which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also know 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 877-389-2465.
