Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Bountiful 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 happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure 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 consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key 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 normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to be sure that number is what your home’s needs. You can figure 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this might 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 varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Craig's Appliance Heating & Cooling, 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 the decision easy.

While each scenario is different, there are a host of factors that go in to which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also recognize that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions.
