New Whole Home Safe and Affordable Disinfectant

Featured

Our new antimicrobial treatment kills 99.99% of mold, germs and viruses within 60 seconds. I’’m very excited to offer this service during this challenging time for our South Florida community and our country

Your family’s health is your highest priority. During the past 38 years, Aloha AC has made sure that South Florida residents have maintained a comfortable and efficient home. However, in today’s world comfort has given way to health and safety. Today’s homes are nearly air-tight, which means that dust, mold, volatile chemicals and germs often recirculate through your air-conditioning system. Filters do a good job of removing most contaminants but they can’t remove everything.
Aloha has launched a new service designed to rid your home of germs, mold and most viruses and kills 99.99% of contaminants within 60 seconds of contact.

The mist is sprayed throughout the home and is harmless to humans and pets. Our technician doesn’t even need to wear a mask during the application, but to reduce any possible transmission of the Coronavirus, they’ll wear proper protection to keep your family safe.

You don’t even have to leave your home or wipe off afterwards. Our product is FDA approved, which means it’s even safe around food and lasts up to six months!

By combining this antimicrobial treatment and installing an Aloha AC Air Purification Package in your current central air system, you can relax knowing you’re providing your family with the healthiest home possible.

Aloha AC is introducing a “green” treatment that kills a wide array of dangerous viruses and bacteria like MRSA, Salmonella, Influenza viruses, Norovirus, Legionella pneumophila, and E coli for up to six month.

What a “Clean” Home Really Means

Aloha AC’s whole home spray disinfectant kills a wide array of dangerous viruses and bacteria like MRSA, Salmonella, Influenza viruses, Norovirus, Legionella pneumophila, and E coli and gets rid of mold and mildew by oxidization. *
Its mist is an environmentally safe alternative to chlorine cleaners and disinfectant. The active ingredient has absolutely no chlorine smell and has been used in disinfecting water supplies for decades. In fact, the primary by-product breaks down to simple salt.
This disinfectant is safe around kids and pets and can be sprayed even with people in the home (although we recommend taking the family and pets outside while the technician is working).
This treatment has undergone extensive testing at both major universities and private labs proving its effectiveness and safety.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registered and USEPA registered (82972-1) as a “Broad Spectrum Disinfectant -Cleaner”.
Aloha’s AC disinfectant spray eliminates bacteria on contact making it perfect for cleaning and sanitizing kitchen and bathroom counters, showers, tile, concrete and other hard surfaces, and is colorless, odorless. It will not harm water-safe fabrics so it can be used to disinfect shoes, backpacks, gym bags, car seats and other porous surfaces. It is the perfect antimicrobial spray, instead of chlorine bleach products, for schools, nurseries or daycares.

The powerful and safe disinfectant is applied through a special electromagnetic sprayer, which makes the surfaces in your home act like a magnet for the fine and safe mist. Think of how a magnet attracts metal filings.

Aloha AC’s antimicrobial spray treatment is the safe and effective solution for mold removal, odor control, green cleaning, and broad spectrum disinfection. The Benefits of using antimicrobial spray. • Kills a wide array of dangerous viruses and bacteria like MRSA, Salmonella, Influenza viruses, Norovirus, Legionella pneumophila, and E coli. • Destroys mold on contact. • Residual prevents mold from coming back by inhibiting microbial growth for up to six months, even in the wettest areas. • Eliminate odors at the source not cover them up with some funky fragrance – it eliminates them on a molecular level. • A green, environmentally safe alternative to chlorine cleaners and disinfectants. • No harsh chemical odors or by-products. 100% biodegradable.

(NOTE: Tests on the effectiveness against the Coronavirus have not been approved or conducted.)



UltraViolet Air Purification Lights

Featured

UV-Aire uses the energy from a specially designed, high-intensity UV-C lamp to reduce microorganisms in the entire home as they cycle through the HVAC system. Mounted inside the ductwork, the UV-Aire sterilizes or kills most contaminants as they pass the lamp.
The process requires very little maintenance and costs just pennies a day to operate. The UV-Aire could be one of the best health and comfort investments a homeowner ever makes.
UV’s effectiveness in killing bacteria is directly related to a microorganism’s exposure time. Indoor air in a typical residential forced-air HVAC system will be recirculated 40-75 times a day. With a UV generating lamp mounted in the HVAC duct, cumulative exposure can be very effective in controlling indoor bacteria.
UV rays will also kill germs that breed in drain pans and A-coils. Properly positioned, an ultraviolet system can significantly reduce indoor air contamination and prevent the growth of new microorganisms.
The treatment of indoor air with ultraviolet radiation has been successful in health care facilities, food processing plants, schools, laboratories and other applications. It is safe, silent, and proven.
Since direct exposure to UV light can cause skin cancer and blindness, the most practical application of UV light in the home or office is in the main air distribution (heating and/or air conditioning) system. As UV light will not pass through metal, glass, or plastic, a UV light can be installed in the main supply or return duct of a central heating or air system without concern for direct exposure to eyes or skin. This is an ideal location since the air in the home or office will pass through the HVAC system up to 75 times per day during normal operation, and as many as
150 times per day in continuous fan mode.

Q. What is UV-C light and how does it kill bacteria?
A. UV-C is the invisible, ultraviolet, C-band radiation that makes up part of the sun’s light spectrum. UV-C light prevents growth and germination of microorganisms by altering DNA and RNA and effectively sterilizing organisms. Once sterilized, they cannot reproduce, and with their short life cycles, they are effectively killed.
Q. Why use a UV light product?
A. There are two primary benefits to using UV light. The first is to keep mold from growing by irradiating the surface. The second is to disinfect the air stream as it passes through the HVAC system. A significant disinfection rate is accomplished with repeated circulation of air through the system.
Q. What is the importance of UV light products?
A. People spend over 90% of their time indoors. With little or no ventilation, concentrations of microorganisms will increase indoors, potentially spreading a number of diseases. With increased cases of deaths being caused by various bacterial diseases, controlling the growth and spread of pathogens is of major concern in indoor environments.
Q. How does the UV-Aire differ from other UV-C devices?
A. UV-C energy has been successfully used in many indoor environments. The UV-Aire was developed specifically for use in HVAC systems. It creates a consistent, high output of UV-C energy. The UV-Aire’s intensity output maximizes microorganism disinfection and ensures cleaner indoor air.
Q. Is the product suitable for people with severe allergy or asthma problems?
A. Yes. The UV-Aire can offer relief to many allergy and asthma sufferers by reducing airborne contamination.
Q. Does the UV-Aire produce a fresh-air smell?
A. Many smells are not addressed by the UV-Aire. However, some unpleasant smells develop from the growth of microorganisms. The UV-Aire works to reduce mold and common household germs, in many cases resulting in a fresher smelling environment.
Q. Does UV light take the place of a filter?
A. No. The UV-Aire should be used in conjunction with a filter.
Q. Should the HVAC appliance fan or blower run continuously?
A. No. During normal operation of the heating or air conditioning unit, the blower will circulate the air over the UV lamp from 40-75 times a day, which is sufficient. During moderate weather, when neither the A/C or heat is on, it is recommended to open the windows to allow for fresh air infiltration and/or to operate the blower continuously (turn on the fan) to circulate air over the UV light.
Q. What precautions should be taken before opening or servicing the ductwork where a UVC lamp is in use?
A. The UV-C lamp should be turned OFF prior to entering the ductwork. An external switch is provided as well as warning labels regarding service procedures. Direct exposure to UV light is not recommended, as it may cause damage to skin and eyes. Protecting the eyes with plastic protective goggles is recommended.
Q. What effects will UV-C rays have on plastics such as coil pans & flex duct?
A. If the plastic is not UV resistant, UV-C can cause a breakdown of the material over time. Based on lab tests, positioning the lamp 30 inches or more away from plastic surfaces will eliminate any measurable breakdown of plastic material.

Coronavirus: Fresh-Aire UV efficiency against viruses, bacteria & mold

Featured

Updated March 23, 2020

Fresh-Aire UV has been receiving inquiries regarding the effectiveness of UV disinfection systems against COVID-19 (coronavirus). We believe the best approach is to be as transparent as possible and to explain the fundamentals and variables that play a factor in inactivating coronavirus and other pathogens with UVC germicidal technologies. 

Fresh-Aire UV systems are tested and validated against bacteria, viruses, mold & fungus. Fresh-Aire UV systems have been tested and achieve up to a *99.999996% reduction on microorganisms. There are a number of factors that need to be addressed in order to determine efficiency, these include but not limited to, the application, such as surface or air disinfection, air velocity and temperature, recirculation rates, and dwell time, as well as the specific biological target. Fresh-Aire UV systems are installed in the HVAC unit and/or ductwork and are designed to disinfect the air as it circulates through the ventilation system. UV dosage for log reduction is measured in several ways including microwatts per second/centimetres2 (μWs/cm2). 

Every microorganism, including coronavirus, requires a specific UVC dosage for inactivation. UV disinfection has been employed for decades in water treatment; these microwatt values have been used for reference to gauge UVC efficiency against a large cross-section of microorganisms. While Fresh-Aire UV systems have not been specifically tested against coronavirus, they have been tested and proven effective against similar pathogens, some that require an even greater dosage for inactivation than coronavirus. 

UV disinfection systems for HVAC are an ideal proactive measure to complement filtration. Microorganisms, particularly viruses, are so small that filters are mostly ineffective. The UV systems have also been shown to reduce problematic molds and pathogens that are found within the HVAC system and drain pan that would otherwise be introduced and distributed throughout the envelope of the building.

The Fresh-Aire UV Light reduces odors, toxic chemical vapors, germs and mold in your home.

Featured

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.

The FRESH-AIRE UV light is installed in the duct-work of your central air system and is designed to help reduce odors, toxic chemical vapors, germs and mold in your home.

Detox the air in your home and protect you and your loved ones from:

  • Alternaria
  • Dust Mites
  • Aspergillus
  • E Coli
  • Pollen
  • Mold

How does the UV Light work?

By removing airborne contaminants as the air is circulated by the central HVAC system. Using a proprietary absorption media to capture VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) then reduces the captured constituents through an innovative photo-cytaltic oxidation process (PCO) which breaks them down into elemental carbon dioxide and water vapor.

Toxic airborne compounds are captured in the photo-catalytic carbon matrix

As odors and chemical contaminants circulate through your air handling system, the ultraviolet light unit utilizes a highly absorptive carbon media which captures these contaminants, removing them from the air stream, much like a sponge absorbs water.

The toxic molecules are broken down into simple water vapor and CO2

During the off cycles of the air handler the UV Light self-regenerating photo-catalytic oxidation process breaks down the captured contaminants and frees up the carbon cell to be able to capture additional airborne VOC’s and odors.

UV Light limits the spead of bio-contaminants like mold and viruses

In addition to the units system’s ability to absorb airborne VOCs, the UV light helps to maintain the cleanliness of your central ac system by shining on the duct-work, cooling coils, heat strips and blowers that are prone to biological growth that can contaminate and clog the system.

UV-C Light Kills Germs

For over a century scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms, thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.

The Science of Clean Air

Over time mold can build up on cooling coils. this is a health risk that robs the air system of efficiency and requires cleaning with chemicals. The germicidal UV light inside kills mold and keeps the coil and air system interior clean.

Recent studies have shown that the level of invisible airborne organic chemical and odor contaminates in our indoor air is generally two to five times higher then the levels found outdoors. while some of these substances merely smell bad, others can be extremely harmful.

these contaminates, known as Volatile Organic Compounds are carbon-based chemicals that easily evaporate at room temperature. The unique technology inside the Fresh-Arie UV helps to eliminate VOCs, making your home a safer and more pleasant place to live.

Common Sources of VOCs Include:

  • Buildings materials
  • Carpets and adhesives
  • Upholstery fabrics
  • Vinyl floors
  • Composite wood products
  • Paints and varnishes
  • Sealing caulks and glues
  • Carpet cleaning solvent
  • Home and personal care products
  • Air cleaners that produce ozone
  • Cleaning and disinfecting chemicals
  • Cosmetics
  • Smoking and fireplaces
  • Fuel oil and gasoline
  • Moth balls
  • Vehicle exhaust from an attached garage

We look forward to discussing your home air quality with you.

Air Conditioners need breathing room or they will break

Like most people, your air conditioner’s outside unit needs its space—otherwise it cannot work properly. To know why, you need to know how a central air conditioner works.

Here is a brief overview:

Your central AC has an indoor unit and an outside unit. The inside unit absorbs heat from your home’s air and then transfers the heat to the outside unit, which then dumps the heat outside.

To disperse heat, the outside unit needs plenty of airflow, which is why your outside unit has a fan. (Think of it like when you blow on a spoonful of soup before you take a bite.)

However, a decorative air conditioner cover restricts airflow around the unit. Restricting airflow can cause the air conditioner’s compressor to overheat and die.

That is awful news for you.

The compressor is the metal “heart” of the outside unit. In addition, once it needs replacing, you might as well replace the entire outside unit. Yes, a compressor is that expensive to replace.

H2- why you need to clean the outside Air Conditioner unit twice a year

While you may not have a decorative Air conditioner cover, you may have other things that can cause the same problem, including:

  • A fence surrounding the outside unit (there needs to be a minimum of 2 ft of space between the unit and the fence)
  • Small tree branches
  • Dirt

All these restrict airflow and cause your AC to work inefficiently, meaning you have higher energy bills.

One common problem we would like to highlight here is dirt. The outside unit is always exposed to the outside elements, so the unit often gets covered in dirt, dust, grass and leaves.

That is why air conditioning manufacturers recommend an annual checkup. Get one from Aloha Ac Rheem® air conditioner contractor today now!

Call Aloha Ac Rheem® air conditioner contractor Today serves the air conditioning needs of Broward and the surrounding cities.

H2- This outside AC unit could use some cleaning

That is why you should clean the outside unit at least twice a year.

You can either clean it yourself using a special coil foaming cleaner and water sprayer (make sure you use a gentle setting).

Alternatively, you can have a professional do it. Most contractors will wash the outside unit as part of an Air conditioner maintenance visit. In South Florida, your Air conditioner needs maintenance at least twice a year because we use it so often.

Maintenance also helps prevent the AC from breaking down, which is a handy benefit if you want constantly cool air during our sizzling, wipe-your-sweaty-brow-every-5-seconds summers.

Spring is usually your best bet to get maintenance, because it is easier to schedule an appointment with a contractor.
