Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Colorado Springs Home

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 occur next with the temperature, it’s important to be 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 few key things to take note of when doing your looking:

  • Size – much like with air conditioners and furnaces, it’s important 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 give you, so you’ll want to make sure that number meets 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 team of professionals 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 evident, but consider more than just the purchase price of the humidifier. You’ll want to ponder 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 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 Triton HVAC & Refrigeration, 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 provide 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 unique, there are a variety of factors that decide 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 get ahold of us if you have any questions.
