Indoor Air Quality

If you’re like most homeowners, you probably pay close attention to the temperature in your home to create a comfortable, safe environment. But many homeowners ignore the quality of their indoor air which can be detrimental to their homes and personal health. Indoor air quality is 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air outside, which is problematic since the average person spends about 90% of their time indoors.

Taking steps to improve indoor air quality can create a safer, healthier home, especially for those who suffer from asthma, allergies, or other respiratory illnesses. Outstanding Heating & Cooling is here to help. Our expertly trained technicians can install indoor air quality solutions such as whole-house air purifiers and dehumidifiers that can remove harmful contaminants from the air or balance humidity levels. To improve the air quality in your Kettering, OH or Greater Dayton area home, contact Outstanding Heating & Cooling.

Air Filtration Products

You may be familiar with portable air cleaners. You can easily move them around your home to provide air filtration for one specific room or area of your home. While they are relatively effective in those areas, they don’t come close to the coverage and effectiveness of a whole-house air filtration system. These devices are connected to your heating and cooling system to provide coverage for your entire home.

While there are many types, makes, and models of air filtration systems, their underlying job is the same – to improve the quality of your Kettering, OH home’s air supply. Depending on the type of air filtration device you install in your home, these systems can kill or capture harmful contaminants including bacteria, viruses, mold spores, dust, dirt, allergens, and pet dander. They can accomplish this by capturing particles in high-efficiency filters, or by using UV lights or ionization to render bacteria and viruses harmless.

One of our most effective IAQ solutions is the iWave-R, the world’s first air purification that requires no maintenance or self-cleaning. The iWave-R uses ionization to clean and purify the air. It’s effective at reducing a wide range of contaminants including mold, mildew, viruses, allergens, smoke, dust, static electricity, pet odors, and more.

Winters in the Kettering, OH area can be extremely dry and cold. Cold air naturally zaps moisture from the air which can lead to health issues such as dry and chapped lips, sinus issues, and bloody noses. Dry air can also damage wood flooring and wood furniture by robbing them of needed moisture.

Indoor air quality experts recommend keeping indoor relative humidity levels within a range of 30-50%. If your air seems especially dry and you notice any of the aforementioned issues, contact the indoor air quality specialists at Outstanding Heating & Cooling for humidifier repair or humidifier installation service.

These helpful devices work alongside your HVAC system by adding moisture to the air as it passes through your HVAC unit, which then distributes the air through your home to provide relief from dry air while reducing static electricity. Contact Outstanding Heating & Cooling for:


On the opposite spectrum, excess humidity levels cause their own unique problems for Kettering, OH homeowners. During the warmer months, indoor relative humidity levels can climb well above 50%, making your home feel stuffy and uncomfortable. Health issues associated with excess humidity include dehydration, fatigue, increased vulnerability to infection, and poor sleep quality.

While humidifiers add moisture to the air, whole-house dehumidifiers extract it to keep humidity levels balanced. Whole-house dehumidifiers pull moisture out of the air when it passes through the HVAC system, causing the moisture to condense into water droplets. The water is drained away from your home, and dryer air is circulated throughout your living areas.

Although air conditioners are tasked with dehumidifying the air, aging and inefficient systems can struggle to keep humidity levels balanced, especially on extremely muggy and humid days.

If you’re considering improving the air quality within your home so it’s more comfortable for you and your family, contact Outstanding Heating & Cooling for dehumidifier repair and dehumidifier installation service.

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

You know the importance of having fire detectors installed throughout your home, but do you have carbon monoxide detectors installed as well? Carbon monoxide is called the “silent killer” because it’s an odorless, colorless, and tasteless gas that can lead to severe health issues and even death in cases of prolonged exposure.

Carbon monoxide leaks can occur from malfunctioning or poorly maintained gas appliances, including gas furnaces, as well as blocked or poorly maintained chimneys. CO alarms can detect even the smallest traces of carbon monoxide and sound the alarm to alert you and your family to danger. CO detectors should be installed on every floor, including the basement, within 10 feet of every bedroom and over or near any attached garages.

To keep your family safe from this dangerous gas, contact Outstanding Heating & Cooling for carbon monoxide detector installation.


If you haven’t replaced your thermostat in several years, you may be surprised by the recent advancement in technology. Thermostats have advanced lightyears in both convenience and technology, especially since the days of the old round-dial models.

Programmable thermostats allow you to pre-set the temperature based on the day of the week and the time of the day. For example, during the winter, you can automatically set your thermostat to a lower temperature during the workday while you’re away from home and set it to a higher setting in the evenings or on the weekends when you’re home.

Smart and Wi-Fi thermostats, meanwhile, take the convenience to a whole new level. These models allow you to control your thermostat from anywhere in the world with a Wi-Fi connection, which is incredibly convenient if you forgot to adjust the temperature before you left for vacation. Smart thermostats can also automatically adjust the temperature based on your personal preferences, your home’s energy usage, and the changing weather for increased energy savings.
