Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Chadron 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 guess what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold nonstop.

You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to take note of when doing your looking:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the right size for your home. You will normally 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 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 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 through 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 degrees of efficiency that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At MPC Heating & Cooling, 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 produce 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 number of factors that go in to 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 reach out if you have any questions.
