Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Shelby Home

February 04, 2016

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure 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 couple crucial things to keep in mind 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 provide, so you’ll want to be sure that number is what your home’s needs. You can find out 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 could be apparent, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 select from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Hopper Heating and Air, we aim to provide the greatest 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 give 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 number 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 contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 704-233-7363.
