Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Racine Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had your fair share 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 done when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold all the time.

You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few crucial things to take note of when doing your searching:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the correct 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 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this may be evident, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., 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 stand by whole-home humidifiers is because they produce effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making the decision easy.

While each scenario is personal, there are a variety of factors that decide which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also recognize 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 262-358-9468.
