4 Air Quality Benefits of Blue UV Light

4 Air Quality Benefits of Blue UV Light

  • HVAC
HVAC cleaning in Missouri by No Problem

Blue UV light has been used to eradicate bacteria for a little over half a century now. Known as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI,) UV light has been harnessed for a variety of sterilization purposes. One of the more mundane uses of UV light is to clean your home’s air supply. By installing a UV light in your HVAC, you can greatly cut down on the amount of contaminants in your home.

 

Here are four ways blue UV light can help your home’s air quality:

 

Improved airflow

Ultraviolet-C (UVC) technology has seen usage since the mid-1990s. Back then, UV lamps saw frequent usage as a means to improve a home’s air quality. Nowadays, we can install them inside HVAC units to kill germs that move through the system. This method also carries the benefit of helping avoid exposure to the UV light, which can cause skin and eye conditions. By using UVC, you can prevent microbial growth in various parts of your HVAC system.

 

Increased energy efficiency

Installing a blue UV light in your HVAC can save around 35% off of your energy bill. The light does this by easing the HVAC’s workload and making it more effective. Of course, HVACs can also become less efficient because of the buildup of dust and other contaminants inside it. Giving your HVAC annual maintenance and cleaning is important in keeping it working effectively.

 

Disease prevention

Your HVAC’s job is to circulate air throughout your home, but disease can also spread by using the HVAC, as well. Since UV lighting prevents the buildup of organic contaminants on interior HVAC structures, UV lights can do a lot to prevent the spread of disease.

 

Cost-effective

Adding a UV light to your system is a way of helping it keep itself clean. This makes them very cost-efficient for modern homeowners. However, you’ll want to contact one of our professional technicians before getting them installed. There are a variety of factors that go into the light’s effectiveness, such as the number and intensity of the lights, your home’s temperature and humidity, and how reflective the surrounding surfaces are.

HVAC Maintenance Tips for Your Missouri Home

HVAC Maintenance Tips for Your Missouri Home

  • HVAC
HVAC maintenance by No Problem Heating and Cooling in Missouri

HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems are an important part of many residential buildings, including your home. Because it performs a wide variety of tasks to keep your home comfortable, you’ll want to make sure you get regular HVAC maintenance. Failure to keep your HVAC well-maintained can result in increased electrical bills, sweltering summers, and frigid winters.

Benefits of Regular HVAC Maintenance

  • Longer lifespan for your heating and cooling system
  • Increased efficiency
  • Better indoor air quality
  • Lower energy bills
  • Consistent home comfort all year

Here are four tips that can help you extend your HVAC’s lifespan and keep it running strong.  

  • Do maintenance before the seasons you’ll start using its heating and/or cooling. Whether your HVAC heats, cools or does both, you’ll want to have preventative maintenance done a season before you’ll really be using it. Is your HVAC primarily used for heating? Schedule maintenance for the fall. Do you use your HVAC to just keep things cool? Add HVAC maintenance to your spring cleaning list. If your HVAC pulls double duty, give it maintenance in both spring and fall.
  • Inspect the air filters once a month. Check and change the filters in your AC, furnace, and/or heat pump often. A dirty filter means your equipment has to work harder to get the same results, increasing your energy bills and putting unnecessary strain on your equipment.
  • Keep the HVAC unit and the area around it clean. You’ll want to regularly clean out any plants and other debris around you condensing unit. In addition, you should take time once a year to clean your vents, registers, evaporator, and condenser coils to keep air circulating efficiently. The U.S. Department of Energy says that “a dirty condenser coil can increase energy consumption by 30%.”
  • Install a programmable thermostat. Programmable thermostats allow you to dictate certain times for the temperature to change. This lets you turn off the heat when no one’s home or you’re sleeping. Careful usage of the thermostat’s settings can reduce your energy costs by around 10%.

Why should I trust No Problem for my heating and cooling needs?

Benefits of Furnace Maintenance

Benefits of Furnace Maintenance

  • HVAC
furnace maintenance by No Problem Heating and Cooling

Winter isn’t over yet! You’ll still be using our furnace plenty, which is why regular maintenance is important. If it’s been a while since you’ve given your furnace some TLC, give the experts at No Problem Heating and Cooling a call. Schedule your furnace tune-up today! Here are some benefits of regular maintenance for your furnace:

Cleaner

Whether you use a furnace or boiler to heat your home, heating systems accumulate dust and other particles throughout their life. All of that debris can negatively affect the efficiency and performance of your furnace. When your furnace is working harder, it can cause a big jump in your utility bills and wear down your furnace’s overall lifespan. When technicians from No Problem give your furnace a tune-up, they’ll make sure to give it a thorough cleaning to prevent such issues.

Less risk of failure

You might not know it, but certain parts of your furnace may have been heavily worn down when winter ended. If you leave your furnace unchecked until you use it next winter, there’s a good chance it’ll break early on when you need it. You don’t want to have your furnace replaced or repaired while you’re in the middle of sub-zero temperatures! Call us to make sure your furnace is able to handle next winter.

Cheaper than a major repair

If you think paying for a tune-up might be too costly, consider this. If your furnace breaks down and needs emergency service, it’s going to cost a lot of money. On the other hand, the preventative maintenance that we perform during a tune-up generally costs much less. Make the smart choice and have us take a look at your furnace.

Safety

In order to produce heat, furnaces have to burn some sort of fuel. This combustion process can cause problems if something is wrong with the furnace. Gasses could leak into the house, carbon monoxide could be released, or your furnace could start a fire. Don’t take a chance with your safety and call No Problem so your furnace won’t be a problem.

Furnace maintenance and your warranty

If your furnace is under manufacturer warranty, it’s a good idea to have it regularly checked. Many manufacturer warranties state that they will become void if the furnace doesn’t get regular maintenance. Having one of our technicians give your furnace a tune-up can uphold your warranty and ensure you’re covered. That way, if something does result in your furnace dying, you can get a refund on it.

Leave the furnace maintenance to the pros.

holiday energy tips in Missouri by No Problem

The holiday season is upon us and many of us are readying their lights, their heat, and their and ovens to celebrate. However, the holidays can be a major contributor to your annual energy bill. Oftentimes, the holidays can be the biggest energy drain for your home. Fortunately, if you’re looking to reduce your spending over the holidays, we’re here to help. We can offer you a variety of holiday energy tips to help you save energy while still being festive. Consider these an early Christmas present from us to you.

Take a look below at our holiday energy tips for you:

 

More guests, less heating

Having friends and family over is one of the best parts of the holidays. Even better, they can help you reduce your heating bill. When you have lots of people in your home, their body heat can raise your home’s temperature. If you balance this increase out by turning down the thermostat before the company arrives, you can expect to save about 3% off your energy bill for every degree you drop the temperature.

 

Give green gifts

Does your gift list include appliances or similar electronics? Keep an eye out for appliances with the Energy Star label on them, as they’re generally the most energy-efficient models around. Similarly, consider getting rechargeable batteries instead of normal ones. While they cost more, they last longer and won’t pollute a dump when they first run out of juice.

 

Cook smarter, not harder

When cooking this holiday season, consider some of these useful tips:

  • Use the smallest appliance necessary, like a microwave or toaster oven, to cook your meals.
  • Cook side dishes along with main courses, such as Christmas ham. Keep in mind the temperature of the oven and how that’ll affect the cooking time for the side dishes.
  • Keep lids on and the oven door closed when cooking. Even short peeks can force your oven to work harder to maintain the proper temperature.

 

Unplug before vacations

When electrical devices are plugged in, they’ll continue to use small amounts of energy, even when turned off. Unplug electronics like printers, computers, and TVs before you head out on vacation.

 

Deck the halls with LED lights

You probably like to decorate your Christmas tree and home with lights during the winter. If you don’t have them, consider switching to LED lights. They’re much more energy-efficient, using about 10% of the energy conventional Christmas lights use. Also, they produce much less heat, making them safer to use on a Christmas tree.

 

Why call No Problem to handle my holiday heating problems?

We offer sales, service, and installation for all of your repair, service or installation needs. Whether it is residential, commercial, or hospitality corporations we do it all.

6 Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

6 Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

  • HVAC
air quality in Missouri by No Problem

You might think air pollution is only a problem that happens outdoors. However, your indoor air quality can also become a serious issue.  To keep our homes at a comfortable temperature, we insulate our homes from the air outside. This has the unfortunate side effect of making the air inside stale, contaminating the air with dust and other contaminants. If you’re looking to be able to breathe easy in your home, take a look at our tips on how to improve your home’s air quality.

Here are six tips to improve your indoor air quality:

 

Get an air purifier

Do the indoor allergens in your home give you sneezing fits? It might be worth considering investing in an air purifier for your home. Getting one can help you cut down on the contaminants in your home. Also, you may want to install a dehumidifier in your home to protect against mold. It’s very common for mold to grow in basements, so you might want to install a dehumidifier down there.

 

Clean often, clean heavily

One of the easiest ways to keep your indoor air quality in check is to keep your home clean. Oftentimes, dust mites, an airborne contaminant, will linger in fabrics in your home, such as on your couch. Regularly cleaning your furniture, rugs, and drapes can help keep dust to a minimum. Cleaning away contaminants is especially important if you own pets who leave dandruff around your home.

 

Keep the vents clean

Vents are another part of your home that should get a regular cleaning. Vents, whether used for HVAC or otherwise, act as a way to circulate air throughout your home. Unfortunately, it’s common for mold to grow and dust to accumulate in there and spread through the vents and your home. Getting regular duct cleaning can go a long way toward keeping your air clean.

 

Use more mild cleaning products

While cleaning products can be useful, the smell of ammonia and bleach can bother some people. If that’s a problem for you or your family, you can try replacing your cleaning products with more mild solutions. For example, a 50-50 mix of water and vinegar is good at cleaning windows and cutting through grease and mildew. A similar consideration is to avoid buying products like paint and paint remover in bulk. Even when sealed, the cans are capable of emitting fumes that can be unpleasant.

 

Keep your windows open

If the temperature is okay and you don’t have problems with outdoor air pollution, you might want to leave the windows open. Letting the fresh outdoor air blow into your home can help get rid of the stagnant air in your home. It’s also a good idea to use a fan of some kind in the kitchen to air out any cooking fumes.

 

Give your AC proper maintenance

Air conditioners are capable of doing more than keeping your home cool. They can help freshen up the stale air and keep your home from getting too humid. Also, most AC units have a filter inside that helps catch contaminants. Keeping that filter clean can also help your home’s air stay fresh.

 

What makes No Problem my best bet for keeping my air fresh?

We offer sales, service, and installation for all of your repair, service or installation needs. Whether it is residential, commercial, or hospitality corporations we do it all. It doesn’t matter if you need a straightforward air conditioner repair or you need a new air conditioner system, we can handle the job.

5 Benefits of a Dehumidifier in Missouri

5 Benefits of a Dehumidifier in Missouri

  • HVAC
dehumidifier in Missouri

While a dry home isn’t enjoyable, the same can be said of an overly humid home. A humid home is more prone to mold, unusually stuffy, and tends to smell musty. Purchasing a dehumidifier for your Missouri home is a simple way to solve this problem. But what exactly do you get out of purchasing a dehumidifier?

Here are five benefits you can get from having a dehumidifier in your Missouri home:

 

Less mold and mildew

Mold and similar contaminants grow best in humid areas or anywhere with lots of water. It’s also a common source of a variety of health problems, such as respiratory problems. Keeping your plumbing in good condition helps, but getting a dehumidifier will help you in the short run, as well.

 

Less condensation

Condensation can be a big problem in some homes. High humidity can cause your wallpaper to peel, leave damp patches on your walls, and even help cause wood of all types to rot. By getting a dehumidifier, you can help limit the amount of condensation you have in your home.

 

Be cooler without changing the temperature

A big thing about humidity is how it makes the air feel warmer than it is. Because of this, you’ll likely try running your AC more to cool down humid air while reducing the humidity. If you’re looking for a better way to cool your humid home, all you need to do is buy yourself a dehumidifier for your home.

 

Less dust

Homes with excessive humidity tend to have more dust mites. These allergens can cause asthma, allergies, and other respiratory problems. If dust mites are getting to be a big problem in your home, buying a dehumidifier can help you and your family breathe easy.

 

Protect your home

A worrying side effect of high humidity is that it can damage your home. High humidity is capable of warping wood, rusting metal, and more. All of these things can cause problems for you and require costly repairs or replacements. If you get a dehumidifier, you can help keep these problems at bay.

The Importance of HVAC Cleaning in Missouri

The Importance of HVAC Cleaning in Missouri

  • HVAC
HVAC cleaning in Missouri by No Problem

Cleaning your home is an important task everyone has to do. However, some parts are more important to clean than others. One of these is your HVAC system. The HVAC uses a series of ducts to move air around your home. The ducts let you manage your entire home’s temperature, but it’s also a great place for dust and other contaminants to hide. If the ducts get dirty, it can cause a variety of irritating respiratory problems for your family. At No Problem, we can help you with HVAC cleaning in Missouri. Our HVAC specialists can do the hard work of cleaning out your HVAC system, letting you breathe easy.

Here are five reasons to get HVAC cleaning in Missouri:

 

Cleaner living environment

Dust can settle down in your ductwork after a few hours of inactivity. However, it doesn’t stay there for long. When the HVAC powers up, moving air can pick up that dust and bring it into the house proper. All that dust can get on your furniture, your floors, and everywhere else. By getting regular duct cleaning, you can keep your house as a whole much cleaner.

 

Less allergens and irritants

There’s more than dust that can get into your air. Various microorganisms and contaminants are also a part of the air. Pet dander, bacteria, mildew, all of it can cause health issues in your family. These can especially be problematic if someone has asthma or some other respiratory issues. Getting a duct cleaning can make your home healthier and keep problems from circulating in your air.

 

Better air quality

Even if nobody in your family has any allergies or issues, clean air is nice in general. When the air is clean, you won’t have to worry about breathing in dust, resulting in a coughing fit. Regularly cleaning your ducts can help your family breathe easier in general.

 

Removing smells and odors

Depending on what goes on in the house, there might be a variety of smells that are part of the building. Mildew, cooking, pet dandruff, tobacco smoke, paint fumes, and more can contribute to stale smells in the ducts. When they start running, ducts can then circulate those smells all over the house. Our thorough duct cleaning can get rid of these smelly dust particles, giving the air in your home a fresher scent.

 

Improved efficiency

When your ducts get filled with dust, it becomes harder for your systems to work efficiently. When this happens, they have to over-exert themselves to produce the same results a clean system could. Not only does this increase your bills, but it also lowers the systems’ overall lifespans. By keeping your ducts clean, you’ll have efficient temperature control that’s highly cost-effective.

 

Why choose No Problem to clean my home’s ducts?

4 Common AC Emergencies in Missouri

  • Cooling
  • HVAC
AC emergencies in Missouri by No Problem

Over the course of its life, your AC will likely have a variety of mechanical issues. However, don’t be so quick to call us to fix it! A lot of times, the issue is something extremely easy to fix, like a changed thermostat or a power outage. Other times, these can be actual emergencies that can mean life or death for your AC. Let No Problem tell you about four common AC emergencies in Missouri.

Here are four AC emergencies in Missouri you’ll likely experience:

 

Screeching noises

Is your AC making more noise than it usually does? AC units are generally pretty quiet, but they can get very noisy when something is wrong. If you’re hearing screeching noises, there are two reasons why that’s happening, and one is much worse than the other. The less serious issue is that the fan belt has become loose. However, it’s possible that the compressor is operating at a high level of pressure. If that’s the case, turn off your AC immediately and call us to repair it.

 

Blowing warm air

This might be surprising, but your AC shouldn’t be blowing warm air. If it is despite your thermostat being set correctly, then you have a problem. There are a variety of reasons this can be happening. Some of the possible causes include a restriction in the air flow, a lack of electricity to the outside unit, a problem with the compressor/outdoor unit, or a low refrigerant level. You’ll have to call one of our professionals to find the cause.

 

Burning smell

If there’s ever a burning smell coming from your AC, that’s a sign of a major problem. More often than not, the burning smell is a sign of an electrical problem. Oftentimes something has heated up to the point where it has melted. It’s important to call us as soon as you can so we can take a look. Electrical problems can easily become fires if they go unchecked.

 

No air

It’s common for an AC in need of repair to not blow any air. There are a wide variety of reasons you’re not getting any air. Sometimes the problem is something as simple as a clogged air filter. However, sometimes the issue can be something far more serious. Before you call us, check over your AC for the more obvious issues. If you still can’t figure out what’s causing your AC problems, call on us to check it out.

For 25 years, No Problem Heating and Cooling has been working with Missouri residents on their heating and cooling systems.
