Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Bishop Home02/04/2016 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 put our finger on what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold consistently. You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two key things to take note of when doing your looking: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial 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 ensure 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 may be obvious, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Bishop 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 different, there are a host of factors that decide 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 reach out if you have any questions.
