At Keystone Heating & Cooling, we’re advocates for clean, indoor air quality. With the changing temperatures and rare summer like days in February…open your windows and let in the fresh air! Check out our 5 easy tips below on how to improve your home’s indoor air quality!

Let in the Fresh Air. Crack open your windows to let out the contaminants from cooking or cleaning. Even during cold months, cracking your window for a short period of time will be beneficial to your health.

Upgrade to a Thermostat That Monitors Your Indoor Air Quality. Keystone offers Nexia thermostats that, aside from controlling your furnace and A/C, controls your whole house humidifier, dehumidifier and ventilation! These touchscreen thermostats also display your outdoor weather forecast, are programmable and can be controlled from your smart devices. Ask our HVAC team for more details!

Use Your Ceiling and Exhaust Fans. This is great for air circulation and ventilation to help eliminate impurities from your home. Especially with flu season—and allergy season shortly approaching, this is a great way to vacuum out pollutants and provide better indoor air quality to your home.

Consider Removing Your Carpet. They are soft and cozy, but they often harbor dust and bacteria that can affect indoor air quality. This can be a nuisance to those who are prone to allergies. If this if you, seek other flooring options that will minimize trapped dust and bacteria in your floors.

Invest in a Whole House Air Cleaner.  Trane’s CleanEffects™ Whole House Air Cleaner removes up to 99.98% of allergens from the filtered air and is more effective than a standard filter. This is a great investment to make if you have pets, children, or allergies.
