How Do I Select the Right Humidifier?

If you aren’t familiar, a whole-home humidifier gets water directly from your water supply and the water panel only needs to be changed a handful of times during the heating season. There are more up-front costs to begin, but there is less maintenance, fewer energy costs and mold prevention in the long-run. An excellent way to choose the correct humidifier is by having a Home Health™ report done by Service Experts. Every space is different, and every family is different. So, every humidification need is also different. There are a a few factors to consider when purchasing a humidifier for your home, and Service Experts can help you realize and consider all options. Think about size. A humidifier's capacity, or the amount of moisture it can diffuse in a given time, should complement your particular household's needs. The capacity is measured as gallons per day of operation. One way to determine the correct-sized humidifier for your house is by multiplying the total floor area in by the ceiling height. Consider your budget. Evaluate not only the basic rate of the humidifier, but also operating and maintenance costs. Some brands absorb more energy than others, so selecting a machine that is right for your home and wallet is very important. Our Experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can give you a home health report to help you select which humidifier is best for your home. And our evaluation will ensure you are getting the right solution to fit your current HVAC system.
