Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Kearney Home

It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had more than enough of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service performed 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 couple important things to keep in mind when doing your research:

  • 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 usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to make sure that number is what 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 cost 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the greatest 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 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 contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 308-624-3485.
