How Do I Choose the Correct Humidifier?

If you aren’t familiar, a whole-home humidifier obtains water straight from your water supply and the water panel only needs to be changed a few times during the winter season. There are larger up-front costs to begin, but there is less maintenance, lower energy costs and mold prevention in the long-run. An excellent way to select the correct humidifier is by having a Home Health™ report completed by Service Experts. Every house is different, and every family is different. So, every humidification need is also different. There are a couple of factors to consider when selecting a humidifier for your home, and Service Experts can help you navigate and review all options. Consider size. A humidifier's capacity, or the volume of moisture it can distribute in a given time, should complement your particular household's needs. The capacity is measured as gallons per day of operation. One method that is used to find out the correct-sized humidifier for your home is by multiplying the total floor area in by the ceiling height. Think about your finances. Evaluate not only the basic price of the humidifier, but also operating and maintenance costs. Some brands consume more energy than others, so choosing a model that is right for your home and wallet is highly important. Our Experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can provide you a home health report to help you find which humidifier is best for your space. And our assessment will ensure you are getting the correct solution to fit your current HVAC system.
