Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Pacheco Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to put our finger on 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 switches to being cold all the time.

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

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the correct size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to be sure that number is what 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 experts 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 might be evident, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think through the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs that come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Clean Air HVAC, 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 its addition an easy one.

While each scenario is unique, there are a host of factors that go in to 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.
