Choosing the Right Whole-Home Humidifier for Your Furnace
It won’t be long before we are adjusting our thermostats to deliver us warmer air and make our homes nice and cozy during the colder temps. And warmer air equates to drier air that can influence our overall health. You may have never contemplated monitoring humidity levels inside, or maybe you’re looking to find just the perfect balance. We’ve talked about the benefits of a whole-home humidifier from reducing the chances of getting sick to helping with your skin. But how do you know which system is the best for your house?
If you aren’t familiar, a whole-home humidifier gets water directly from your water supply and the water panel only needs to be changed a couple times throughout the heating season. There are more up-front costs to get started, but there is less maintenance, lower energy costs and mold prevention down the road.
There are a couple factors you’ll need to consider when shopping for a whole-home humidifier.
- Size—The humidifier’s capacity and size is based on gallons per day of operation. One way to find out what size you should get is to take your total floor area and multiply it by the height of your ceiling. This will help determine how many gallons per hour is necessary and be a guide as you assess your options.
- Budget—There are initial costs when purchasing the humidifier equipment, but it’s important to also acknowledge how much money will go into operation and maintenance. There are a variety of models that can help meet the needs in your home while sticking to a budget you are comfortable with.
Each house is different. Our team at Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning can offer you a home health report to help you pick which humidifier is best for your home. And our assessment will confirm you are getting the best solution to fit your current HVAC system. We want to make sure you rest easy during the cooler season and that you have the support you need to maintain proper indoor air quality.
