Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Beaverton Home02/04/2016 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 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 performed 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 important things to take note of when doing your searching: Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the right size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can give you, so you’ll want to ensure that number matches up with your home’s needs. You can determine that number by multiplying your home’s total square footage by the height of your ceiling. Our team of professionals 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 obvious, but consider more than just the cost 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 select from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs. At Garoken Energy Co. 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 endorse whole-home humidifiers is because they provide 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 decide which humidifier is right for you and your home.
