Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Long Beach Home

February 04, 2016

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 completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold nonstop.

You may also want to think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are two important things to keep in mind when doing your searching:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s critical to have a system that is the appropriate 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 be sure that number meets your home’s needs. You can figure out 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 impact the product best suited for your home.
  • Cost – this might be obvious, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to think about 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 select from, so be sure you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At YES R&M Inc., we aim to provide the greatest 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 the decision easy.

While each scenario is unique, there are a host of factors that determine which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also recognize 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 562-286-6624.
