Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Minocqua 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 happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make certain that you’ve had furnace service done when the weather finally begins being cold consistently.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to remember when doing your research:

  • 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 typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to make sure that number is what your home’s needs. You can determine 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 play a role in determining the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could be evident, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 choose from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Danco 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 stand by 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 personal, there are a variety of factors that go in to 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions.
