Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Baltimore Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird 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 be sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold consistently.

You may also want to think about 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 correct size for your home. You will typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can provide, so you’ll want to make sure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can find out 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this may be obvious, but consider more than just the purchase price 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 a number of efficiency levels that you can pick from, so be sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Quality Refrigeration, we aim to provide the best 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 produce 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 different, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is ideal 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.
