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.

The Importance of HVAC Cleaning in Missouri

The Importance of HVAC Cleaning in Missouri

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.

Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air?

Air Conditioner Not Blowing Cold Air?

  • HVAC
heat wave

Your AC is blowing but it isn’t blowing cold air. We hear this common question in St. Charles,  Mo. “Why isn’t my air conditioner cooling my home?” The most common cause is simply a lack of airflow. One of the first steps is going to your circuit breaker and flip it off. Give it a few minutes and let it rest. Flip it back on and see if you have noticed any change in your air. The idea behind this is to give it a reset. You are shutting all the electrical and mechanical parts down. Hopefully, by doing this simple step it reset for you.

AC Not Blowing Cold Air

If your AC isn’t working properly, it’s important to know the cause. In this blog, we will troubleshoot any issues you may be experiencing in your home!

Outside Air Conditioner Not Turning On.

If your outside unit is not turning on this could be a big problem. You should first check your fuse box and make sure that you have not blown a fuse. This seems like it would be out of the ordinary and you are right. It normally isn’t the problem but kids flip breakers having fun all the time and sometimes they just overload.

No Cold Air? No Problem Can Help.

Common Issues You May Experience With Your AC

Power Issues

This is generally your first thought to check. It seems basic but it is so common you just have to check. You should check the ac and make sure you are still plugged in. While you are at it go yo your electric panel and still if it has been flipped or broke. If you had a surge of power it could have flipped the breaker without you knowing.

Clogged Filter

We have seen AC units that will shut down the entire system when the filter gets dirty. This is a simple trick to help save your motor and help save your entire system. When you have a clogged filter, you will notice the system gets backed up and the ac will have trouble breathing.

Thermostat Problems

Barring any electrical issues,  the next step is to check your thermostat. Many things can go wrong with a traditional thermostat. If you haven’t looked into a digital thermostat yet, the time is now.

Clogged Drain

The whole idea behind an air conditioner is to remove that moisture from the air. Once the air is removed, it drains it out of a pipe or hose. It is very important to replace those or keep them clean. You can rinse it out with a natural cleaning solution.

Dirty Compressor

Your compressor is a high ticket item and it should be treated like so! You should try to clean around the area. Some folks in colder areas in St. Charles like to cover it for the winter.

Why Isn’t My Air Conditioning Not Cooling My House?

Your air conditioner has a water sensor switch for example. This will shut down if it has a clogged condensate drain line and spills water into the overflow pan. It is your Amana AC airbag deploying to prevent water damage to your home.

Like a human, your ac can overheat. This will cause it to run harder and pulling in more than enough electricity than the breaker can handle. The breaker will cut power to your air conditioner. If you flip the breaker and it does it again a few times. It is letting you know there is something wrong somewhere.

Other Possible Issues

  • You could have a bad compressor. This will need to be inspected by a licensed technician
  • There could be a low charge on your refrigerant or you have a leak
  • A broken condenser
