Poor HVAC Maintenance

Dirty air filters, improper ventilation, and a lack of maintenance can all cause IAQ problems in your home. During a heating system tune-up, a Kearney HVAC technician will inspect your furnace, boiler, or heat pump to ensure it’s operating efficiently and not contributing to unhealthy breathing air.

Low Indoor Humidity

We often have high humidity levels here in New England, but the winters can be excessively dry. Installing a humidifier in your home for the colder months can help you keep indoor humidity levels in the EPA recommended 30-50% range. 

High Levels of Pollutants

Cooking, cleaning, and other indoor activities can all lead to more volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and pollutants in your home. Air purification systems, like iWave or Aprilaire purifiers, can seamlessly integrate with your HVAC system and deliver fresh, clean air through your home’s central duct system. Effective ductless and standalone purification systems are also available for homes without ductwork.
