It’s safe to say that even with the crazy weather recently, you’ve had plenty 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 make certain that you’ve had furnace service completed 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 key things to keep in mind when doing your searching:
- 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 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 experts 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 apparent, 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 associated with your new humidifier. As it is with heating and cooling equipment, there are a number of efficiency levels that you can choose from, so make certain that you’re going with the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.
At James Heating & A/C, 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 endorse whole-home humidifiers is because they give effective and consistent results throughout your entire home.

While each scenario is personal, there are a host of factors that determine which humidifier is correct 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 336-853-6070.
