Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Lodi Home

February 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 predict what’s going to take place next with the temperature, it’s important to be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally begins being cold nonstop.

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

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s crucial to have a system that is the correct 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 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 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 might be obvious, but consider more than just the cost of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder the operating cost as well as any maintenance costs associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so make sure you’re purchasing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning, we aim to provide the best 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 it an easy decision.

While each scenario is unique, there are a host of factors that go in to 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions. Give us a call at 209-257-3156.
