Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Mechanicsville Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold all the time.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple crucial 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 right size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, 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 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 might be obvious, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through 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 degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At M & S Heating & Air LLC, we aim to provide the ideal 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 provide effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making its addition an easy one.

While each scenario is personal, there are a host of factors that decide which humidifier is correct for you and your home. We also understand that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 301-363-4699.
