Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Napoleon and Northwest Ohio Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird 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 performed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold consistently.

You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important things to keep in mind when doing your looking:

  • 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 typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, so you’ll want to make sure that number meets 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 could be apparent, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 degrees of efficiency that you can select from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc., 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 it an easy decision.

While each scenario is different, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also understand that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
