Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Buellton Home

February 04, 2016

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 be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally switches to being cold nonstop.

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

  • 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 typically 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 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 could be apparent, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Allstar Heating & Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the greatest solutions for our customers, which in the case of humidifiers is a whole-home humidifier. The reason we like whole-home humidifiers is because they give 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 determine which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also know that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 805-242-9638.
