Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Lincoln Home

February 04, 2016

It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to guess what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service done 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 research:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the correct 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 be sure that number meets your home’s needs. You can determine 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 affect the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be evident, but consider more than just the expense of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that go with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so be sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At AW Heating & Air Conditioning, 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 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 personal, there are a variety of factors that go in to which humidifier is ideal 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 402-318-5351.
