Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Moline Home

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had more than enough 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 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 key things to take note of when doing your research:

  • 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 give you, so you’ll want to be 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 affect the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be obvious, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 varying efficiencies that you can choose from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Freed 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 the decision easy.

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