Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Marshalltown Home

It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to happen next with the temperature, it’s important to make sure that you’ve had furnace service performed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold all the time.

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 important to have a system that is the appropriate size for your home. You will usually see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to be 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 impact 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 come with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Kapaun & Brown 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 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 personal, there are a host of factors that go in to 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. Give us a call at 641-753-3563.
