Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Tuscaloosa Home

Air Quality
Cooling
Heating

It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the 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 be sure that you’ve had furnace service completed when the weather finally flips the switch to being cold all the time.

You may also want to consider adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to take note of when doing your looking:

  • 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 typically see a number that will tell you the gallons per day that a specific humidifier can offer, so you’ll want to ensure 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 team of professionals 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 could be evident, but consider more than just the cost 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 degrees of efficiency that you can choose from, so make sure you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At KDM Service Corporation, 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 its addition an easy one.

While each scenario is different, there are a variety 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 reach out if you have any questions. Give us a call at 205-208-8090.
