Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your West Palm Beach Home

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

You may also want to think through adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple key things to remember when doing your looking:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will normally see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to make 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 team of professionals 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 apparent, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 pick from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Summit Air Conditioning Inc, we aim to provide the best solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we like whole-home humidifiers is because they give effective and consistent results throughout your entire home. Plus, it’s integrated into your existing system, making the decision easy.

While each scenario is unique, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also recognize 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.
