Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Suffolk/Nassau County Home

It’s safe to say that even with the weird weather recently, you’ve had your fair share 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 performed when the weather finally switches to being cold consistently.

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 research:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the correct size for your home. You will usually 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 meets your home’s needs. You can determine 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this could 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 come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Airmax Long Island Inc, we aim to provide the ideal 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 unique, there are a variety of factors that determine which humidifier is right for you and your home. We also know that humidifiers are talked about even less than furnaces and air conditioners, so feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 631-737-5566.
