Humidity Control

Maintaining proper indoor humidity is one of the most important aspects of total home comfort, yet it’s one of the most ignored. There are many ways we can help you improve your whole house humidity, such as steam, fan-powered, and bypass whole home humidifiers which offer flexible, efficient and low-maintenance means of achieving not only complete comfort but healthy Indoor air quality. Installed directly into your central heating and cooling system, humidifiers precisely adjust moistures levels throughout your entire home, minimizing the ill effects of dry air and allowing satisfying comfort at lower temperatures. The relative humidity of cold, outdoor air drops significantly when drawn into your home and heated. Inadequate humidity raises energy costs, making you feel colder at normal temperatures, and leading to higher thermostat settings. Properly hydrated air slows the body’s natural cooling process, keeping you warmer without boosting the heat and taxing your budget. Poor in-home humidity control is a definite sign that you should be talking to your HVAC representative.

There are a number of things we consider:

  • Age of the AC system (and whether it's working properly)
  • AC Technology used
  • AC recommended size for the house
  • Thermostat control and control settings

In addition, insufficient humidity can increase the likelihood of viruses that thrive in dry air; causing colds, flu and respiratory ailments. Dry air also leaves you more susceptible to infection, and irritates allergy and asthma symptoms. Effective, reliable and economical humidification reduces risk of bloody noses, dry mouth, itchy eyes, sore throat, and cracked itchy skin. A whole-home humidifier protects against airborne allergens, keeping a healthier, cleaner and fresher home environment for you and your family season after season.

    " Great service!!!!!! Outstanding Value. Jerry and Sandy are running a top notch service company. They have won my business!!!!! Thanks for your help. "



    " I had Kettering Heating & Air out to my house recently to service my heater and they did a great job. It turns out that I had a damper that was broken and was not getting heat to my two upstairs bedrooms and they also found a duct that had some leakage. I thought it was going to cost me a lot of money to correct the issue but they did not try to sell me things that were not needed. It is nice knowing that.

    " McAfee Heating and Air gave my 86-year old mom a quote of $1,200 – LABOR ONLY – for a 3-4 hour job of replacing her heat exchanger (the part was under warranty).
    When I questioned the $400 per hour charge, the McAfee technician asked me, “Is that unreasonable?” He also said it would take a week to get the part. Kettering Heating and Air did the same job for $450 and had the part picked up and installed the same day. My mom was extremely satisfied with Kettering’s service.

  • " Called these guys to come out my furnace at home. Not only do they do great work at a fair price, but their customer service is top notch. The tech, who’s name is also Matt, was very helpful.
    My 3-year-old daughter was running around the whole time he was working and he didn’t mind at all. She even came up to him afterward and gave him a hug as he was leaving. "



    "Great service at a fair price!! Highly recommend them to anybody!! Thank you for everything!!"



    " The best HVAC company in Dayton. They take pride in their work and service. They sell quality furnaces and air conditioners. They have always provided excellent service. "



    " Very happy with these guys. Previously used one of their competitors (huge company; they sell a pricey maintenance plan and charged a lot for everything). Have used Kettering twice now. They’ve never tried to sell me any membership or maintenance plans.
    Charges seem much more reasonable than the other guys (under $300 both visits; other guys charged me $300 to swap out a thermostat that I later found I could get from Home Depot for $50–they charged $200 just for the part and $100 to switch it out, which took 15 min). Kettering’s workers came when they said they would and seemed knowledgeable and polite. "



    " This business has been a reliable partner in meeting my heat and AC needs for more than 10 years. They offer fair prices and quality workmanship along with a family owned business feel. I have become a big fan of their American Standard product line. Their service extends beyond the original install with quick follow up on both warranty and non-warranty calls. "
