Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality issues?

Call Kearney for reliable solutions.



Although we often think of air pollution as being outside the home, the EPA reports that indoor air is commonly two to five times or more polluted than outside. The quality of your indoor air impacts your comfort and health. When pollutants get inside, your home can act as a bubble that traps allergens, pollen, mold, dust, bacteria, and viruses. 

At Kearney HVAC, we offer several whole-home indoor air quality solutions that can help you breathe easier, like air purifiers, dehumidifiers, and more. Our team consists of highly trained building science experts, and we only install best-in-class IAQ products, like iWave and Aprilaire

What Causes Poor Indoor Air Quality? 

There are several factors that can contribute to poor indoor air quality (IAQ) in a home, such as:

  • Carbon monoxide
  • Mildew & mold
  • Dust & dirt
  • Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Pet dander
  • And more

The source of IAQ contamination can come from inside or outside of your home, and the team at Kearney HVAC can help find a solution based on your specific needs.

The Importance of Balanced Humidity Levels 

The EPA advises maintaining home humidity levels between 30% and 50% for optimum health and comfort. Considering that people spend an average of 90% of their time indoors, proper humidity levels in the home are crucial for overall health. 

Signs of low humidity levels include:

  • Dry skin 
  • Irritated nasal passages
  • Chapped lips 

Conversely, high indoor humidity levels can be the perfect breeding ground for common home allergens like mold, mildew, and dust mites. These allergens can cause issues like:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Worsened asthma & allergy symptoms 
  • Respiratory problems

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms while at home, it’s time to consider a humidity solution. Our whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers will ensure that you have proper humidity levels throughout your home.

Myth Busting: Heat Pumps in Cold Weather

Home in winter
Just a few years ago, heat pumps were not an adequate exclusive heating system for New England homes because they couldn't operate in extremely cold conditions. However, recent technology advances have changed this.

Very knowledgeable and thorough
