Split System Air Conditioners have an outdoor section and an indoor section.The outdoor section features the compressor and fan, but it uses the indoor sections (such as a furnace or air handler) to distribute cool air.
Single Package Air Conditioners features all of the components of a split system but in a single outdoors section. Simply put, the blower is housed with the air conditioning components.
The structure of your home is key to selecting the proper air conditioner. For example, split system units are commonly used in the Midwest because most homes feature basements with gas furnaces. Single packaged units are more common in the southeast region where homes may have a crawl space instead of a basement – making the single packaged unit more space efficient.

A lot of people ask, “Does the UV light produce smells”. Well the answer is yes, some brands do for a short period of time after being newly installed. However, the brand we offer does not produce any noticeable smell after install.
Fresh-Aire Blue-Tube UV
The Original Low-Voltage UV Light Kit
Blue-Tube UV is the simple and complete choice in UV light for all residential applications. Everything you need is in the tube! Just make the electrical connections and install the UV light where needed.
High and Low Voltage Options
Blue-Tube UV is now you available with a high or low-voltage power supply. Low-Voltage models feature exclusive Extended Range (ER) technology which eliminates low voltage problems associated with variable speed air handlers and fluctuating or over voltage issues.
• Innovative magnetic mounting bracket makes installation safe & easy
• Lifetime extended range power supply mounts inside control panel
• Weather resistant remote mountable UV lamps
• 4 lamp models to choose from
• Provides a healthier living environment for your family
• Kills mold, bacteria, and viruses where they lurk
• Reduces system maintenance
• Reduces household odors
Blue-Tube UV should be installed by an HVAC professional.
Mold and other microbes can thrive in the moist interior of the air handler
Moldy cooling coils waste enegy and spread germs through the air system
With a UV light installed cleaned coils stay clean
Why does UV light kill germs?
UV-C light (the frequency used in germicidal UV lights) kills germs by disrupting their DNA which prevents them from reproducing, effectively killing them. In nature this frequency of light is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere so microbes have no defense against it.
1. Is UV light safe for children and pets?
When a UV light system is installed in a central air system the germ killing effect takes place inside the air system and is limited to that area. There is no danger to any living thing in the home except microbes that are carried by the air into the central air system.
2. Is it OK to look at the UV light?
Never look at the UV light when it is lit. UV-C light can give your eyes painful “sunburn”. Unplug or disconnect the unit to work on it.
3. Our air system isn’t running so why is the UV light still on?
Mold and other biological contaminants will grow inside the air handler whether or not it’s running. Constant exposure to UV-C light keeps the air system clean.
4. Can I upgrade my Blue-Tube UV with a different lamp?
Yes! All Blue-Tube and Fresh-Aire UV AHU lamps are interchangeable. When it’s time to replace your UV lamp you have 4 options to select from: 1 Year, 2 Year, 1 Year Odor Control, and 2 Year Odor Control.
5. My ‘1 Year’ UV light still glows after 2 years –
Do I need to replace it?
Yes, over time the UV effectiveness of the lamps decreases even though the lamp may still be putting out visible light. ‘1 Year’ and ‘2 Year’ lamp designations refer to effective UV output not when the lamp will burn out.
6. Will a UV light system kill mold in the walls?
No. UV-C germicidal irradiation can only kill microbes on surfaces that the light shines on directly (surface kills) or that pass by in the air stream (airborne kill).

Your air conditioning system will be working overtime in the Florida heatwave this summer – follow Alohaac tips to ensure your heating, ventilation and air conditioning unit (HVAC) is working at its best:
1. Don’t let your HVAC work more than is necessary. And don’t let your office get too hot before turning it on. It’s key to regulate your temperature so as not to stress your unit. Keep doors and windows closed when your AC is turned on, and keep shades and curtains drawn on very hot days. Avoid having direct sunlight streaming in through doors and windows. As much as possible, don’t operate other heat-generating appliances in the daytime when your AC is going to be working.
2. Replace your air filters on a regular basis. Do this at least once every 3 months. Experts estimate that you can reduce your energy cost by as much as 10% by keeping up on this task. And the cleaner air will benefit your staff’s health as well. Air conditioning energy assessments are often undervalued!
3. Keep your thermostat constant. Changing your thermostat’s setting constantly can result in inefficiency. If you wish you can increase the temperature by a few degrees in the day time while you are away. When in cooling mode, switch on your AC fan to prevent hot or cold pockets from forming. This can also help prevent your condenser from icing up.
4. Keep your outside unit free of dust and dirt. Clear plants and other items from around its perimeter for at least 12-18 inches. Ensure also that indoor vents remain unobstructed to keep air circulation going for industrial air conditioning, this is so important.
5. Schedule regular tune-ups Have a reliable HVAC technician perform maintenance checks on your unit, preferably before the beginning of summer.
Our staff is fully trained in the HVAC techniques required to ensure this process is carried out efficiently. The result is that your air will be fresher, easier to breathe, and less likely to cause allergic reactions.
