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 predict what’s going to occur next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold nonstop.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a few important things to take note of when doing your research:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the appropriate 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 experts 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 may 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 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 best 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 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 host of factors that go in to which humidifier is correct 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 309-323-9584.
