Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Excelsior Springs Home

It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had plenty 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 make certain that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to keep in mind 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 provide, so you’ll want to ensure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can determine 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 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 that come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Colvin's Inc, we aim to provide the best 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 it an easy decision.

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