Choosing the Right Humidifier for Your Lexington Home

Air Quality
Cooling
Heating

It’s safe to say that even with the unpredictability of the weather recently, you’ve had your fair share of winter. As we keep trying to predict what’s going to happen 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 think about adding a humidifier to your home. In that case, here are a couple important things to remember 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 usually 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 meets 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 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 varying efficiencies that you can pick from, so make certain that you’re choosing the right one for your home, budget and humidity needs.

At Kelley Mechanical, 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 give 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 personal, there are a host of factors that go in to which humidifier is ideal for you and your home. We also understand 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 859-209-3003.
