Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Kearney Home

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy 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 nonstop.

You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to keep in mind when doing your searching:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the correct 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 make 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 pros 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 may 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 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 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 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 determine which humidifier is ideal 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 308-624-3485.
