UV lights and Indoor Air quality

Discover a bright solution to germ pollution.

UV lights (Ultra Violet) use powerful rays of ultraviolet light to control and kill contaminants like viruses, bacteria, yeast and mold that build up in your home when you have inadequate air ventilation or high humidity. Installed inside your duct system,  UV lights improves the air in your entire home keeping you and your family happier and healthier.

How UV Lights Work

Powerful control of your home’s air quality

Even when your heating and cooling system isn’t running , UV lights work continuously to destroy contaminants. The dual-lamp design of the UV light offers the highest intensity on the market today. Plus, there’s no emission of ozone—a known lung irritant—so your family can breathe easily and comfortably.

Helps your heating and cooling system run more efficiently

Buildup of mold and other microorganisms inside your heating and air-conditioning equipment can compromise system performance. By killing germs that may live on ducts or coil surfaces, UV  lights help keep your HVAC system clean and running at peak efficiency.

Remember 50% of all illnesses are either caused by, or aggravated by, polluted indoor air. Contaminated home comfort systems (air conditioning and heating) can become a breeding ground for biological contaminants, such as bacteria, viruses and mold.

The system can distribute contaminants throughout your home. 1 out of 6 people who suffer from allergies do so because of fungi and bacteria in the air ducts in the home. Levels of pollution inside the home can be two to five times higher, and occasionally 100 times higher, than outdoor levels. Children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems benefit the most from fewer airborne pollutants.

Importance of having an Air Conditioning Maintenance

Just like a car needs regular maintenance, your air conditioning and heating system requires regular Air Conditioning maintenance to keep it running as efficiently as possible. So here are some reasons that Air Conditioning Maintenance is important for your home comfort system.

Bottom Line- HVAC maintenance saves you money.

Proper maintenance of your heating, ventilation and air conditioning system will help reduce electrical consumption and therefore lower your utility bills. It can help increase the life span of your equipment, thus reducing the need for expensive repairs.

What are some things you can do to get the most from your air conditioning and heating equipment?

Regular filter changes are an important part of your indoor environmental quality and HVAC equipment condition. Filter changes are first and foremost the most important element to air conditioning and heating system maintenance. Filter changes should be done monthly and/or quarterly depending on the filter type. Changing the filters of your ac equipment is a rather simple task with multiple benefits. Clean filters promote clean air, reduce allergens in the work space and allow for proper refrigeration process and pressures. What this means to you and your commercial building is a more productive work environment that promotes healthy living. It maximizes air conditioning capacity and gives you the full benefit of cooling, plus decreased electricity consumption results in lower utility bills and decreased overall operating costs.

Healthy, Productive Living + Money Saved = Happy Home Owner!

Additional items to add to your air conditioning maintenance list for getting the most value out of your air conditioning equipment include the following:

  • Clean drain lines and drain pans quarterly. Condensate treatment should be done to ensure proper drainage and to reduce the risk of water damage to the building.
  • Check and tighten belts quarterly. Tightening belts is critical to ensuring proper air volume, which affects the refrigeration process and cooling capacity. (lower utility costs.) If a belt breaks, your system will freeze up, causing potential water damage and compressor failure. If this happens, the ability to produce conditioned air is lost. Experiencing downtime of your air conditioning equipment can be disruptive to a productive work environment. Plus, emergency calls can cost upwards of an additional 30% due to overtime rates. Simple, regular maintenance can eliminate this risk.
  • Coil Cleaning. Clean coils annually and you can reduce electricity consumption, increase the overall efficiency of your unit, keep the air cleaner, increase the overall lifetime of the system and reduce repair costs. All that for a simple annual maintenance move that can be done quickly and at a minimal cost depending on the condition and location of your equipment.
  • Ensure Proper Refrigerant Levels. Checking refrigerant levels and pressures ensures proper dehumidification, which removes moisture to ensure a comfortable, cool and dry space.
  • Check electrical connections / motors. Oil and lubricate bearings to reduce friction (overheating). Reducing friction and heat will help decrease energy consumption and lower your utility costs.

General maintenance. There are other general maintenance items that can be done to keep your air conditioning system running at its optimal efficiency. Contact us today for a free building evaluation. We will inspect the equipment and provide a maintenance proposal specifically to meet you building and equipment’s needs.

Maintaining Air Conditioning Coils

Maintaining Air Conditioning Coils

What Are the Coils and What Do They Do?

Maintaining your home or business’ Air conditioner may seem like a daunting task, but your air conditioner is one of the most expensive and necessary things in your home, so it pays to take care of it. The coils are the some of the most important parts of your A/C system. The evaporator coils absorb heat and humidity from the air inside your home or office and then the condenser coils expel that heat outside your building. A/C coils are heat exchangers that transfer heat to and from the refrigerant running in the loop between the outdoor A/C condenser and the cooling equipment inside your house. When these coils get dirty, they cannot absorb heat and humidity. Regular coil cleanings are highly recommended to transfer heat effectively.

What Happens if the Coils are Not Maintained?

  • Higher energy bills – Your A/C system works harder and runs longer when the coils are dirty. This uses significantly more electricity raising the amount of your electric bill.
  • Frequent Breakdowns – The wear and tear of your system running harder causes parts to wear out faster and break.
  • Shorter System Lifespan – The increased wear can cause your system to die faster than expected. This is can be very costly.
  • If the temperature in your house is feeling uncomfortable causing you to turn down the temperature to make it feel better, you most likely have a problem that is costing you more to run your system.
  • I’m most cases it’s a small adjustment that can make a world of difference. Call us today for an evaluation! Edward’s Air will clean your coils with a smile. We have experts who can maintain your A/C unit supplying precious preventative maintenance. This will reduce your energy bills, lower repair bills and increased the system’s lifespan.

How Often Do You Need A/C Coil Cleanings?

Cleanings are recommended twice a year and more frequently depending on:

  • The age and condition of your equipment
  • Usage
  • Location and pollution levels

How to Clean Evaporator and Condenser Coils

While there are home remedies to clean your air conditioning coils, it is safer and more effective to have the professional HVAC experts at Edward’s Air clean your A/C coils, so you know your conditioner is in safe and knowledgeable hands.

5 Most Common MISTAKES Made When Buying a New Air Conditioner

Keeping the house cool in the summer time is necessary for health as much as it is for comfort. Unfortunately, this just happens to be the time when most air conditioners break. In your hast to restore comfort, many people overlook some important buying criteria. Because the air conditioner is an important investment and plays such a key role in the enjoyment of the home, it’s critical to be aware of some common mistakes people make that can cost them 1000s of dollars.

5 Most Common Mistakes Made When Buying a New Air Conditioner

  1. Purchasing from an uninsured supplier. Choosing a qualified and reputable company involves checking that both the company and technicians have the appropriate license and insurance. The company should have experience in installation and maintenance of the air conditioners they sell. They should also be cognizant of and meet health, safety and specific building standards.
  2. Neglecting to check customer testimonials and complaints history. Before investing in a new air conditioner it is important to explore the reputation of the company who will supply and ultimately service the unit.
  3. Buying the wrong size unit. According to energy experts, buying the wrong size unit can result in a number of problems including high utility bills, mold buildup, damaged equipment and unhealthy air quality. Your contractor should evaluate the physical characteristics of the home and the family’s heating and cooling needs in order to make an accurate estimate of the appropriate size unit that will best fit your requirements.
  4. Buying based solely on price. Giving priority to price over requirements can turn out to be less cost effective over time. A unit based on price alone may need to be repaired more frequently replaced sooner and cost more discomfort from a financial and physical standpoint in the long run. As such, it is important to choose an air condition that adequately fulfills all your requirements even if the cost exceeds one that doesn’t.
  5. Not choosing Edwards Air Enterprise when buying a new air conditioner. Family owned

And locally operated with over 25 years of experience, Edwards Air Enterprise offers great service with an outstanding “5 Star reputation”. All of our technicians are factory trained and certified to provide full support during the entire process.

8 Things You Need to Know Before Hiring an HVAC Contractor

If you are looking to hire an HVAC contractor, cost shouldn’t be – but often is – the most important consideration. Be aware, however, you could be compromising other important factors like quality or service just to get the cheapest price.

Here are 8 essential points to consider before you hire a HVAC contractor:

  1. The best referrals (and usually the most honest) are by word of mouth. Talk to your family and friends to see who they would recommend and who they wouldn’t.
  2. Do your online research. Check out the company’s website. Can you easily find the information you are looking for? Do they appear professional and trustworthy? Don’t forget to also search online for reviews of the company and their competition. Do they provide good customer service?
  3. Look for a company that is well-established. Realistically you will be looking to have the same company service and/or repair your HVAC system in the future. A business that has been around awhile is likely to stick around to provide service in the future.
  4. How knowledgeable is the company? Ensure the technicians have the appropriate certifications to do the job right. Confirm the company has full insurance coverage in case one of their employees gets injured on the job.
  5. Learn as much as you can before you go looking for a contractor. The more you know about how HVAC systems work, the better off you will be when talking to your contractor. What types of units are available? What are the options? What kind of maintenance do they need?
  6. See if any rebates are currently being offered. It’s not uncommon for one or all of your manufacturer, installer, or utility to offer regular promotions or rebates. It is worth investigating and can save you a lot of money.
  7. Ask for written quotes from more than one company and take time to think them over. Consider not only the cost of the quote, but what service and product they are assuring you. A cheap quote may be good for the wallet, but not if it ends up costing you a lot of hassle and money in the long run. Often a lower price means a less professional job and can lead to unhappy customers down the road.
  8. Think long term. A higher quality unit may cost you more up front, but is worth considering if it has improved efficiency, provides you greater comfort and saves you money on energy costs in the long run.
