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:
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:

Two-thirds of all homes have leaky ducts that go undetected. These leaks can cause your energy bill to go up and affect the comfort and air quality inside your home. The good news is, repairing leaky ducts is often fairly easy and inexpensive, especially with FPL’s and Aloha Air Conditioning’s help. Here’s what you need to know about your ductwork to avoid wasting energy and money.
1. What are leaky ducts?
2. What can you do?
3. How does it work?
– Up to $154.00 per central A/C system for single-family detached homes.
– $60.00 for multi-family, single-family attached homes, manufactured and mobile homes.
4. What are the qualifications for a Duct System Test?
5. How do you participate?

Aloha Air Conditioning is proud to have a team of qualified Freon leak repair service technicians that are properly licensed, insured and have preformed HVAC system high pressure test since 1982.
When an air conditioning system has been found to be low on refrigerant. (freon). The technician will charge the system with refrigerant and check the equipment for leaks at the accessible pipe joints along with tightening of all fittings. However, should no leak be evident at that time. You now have options available to you such as:
The air handler, condenser, liquid and suction refrigerant pipes will be put under 300 pounds of nitrogen pressure and left for a period of time. (The normal time range is 24 to 48 hours.) Then the technician will return to determine which section of the piping has low pressure and repair or replace the leaking area and recharge the system. While this is the proper way to resolve freon leak repair problems, it is also more labor and material intensive.

Because cooling and heating your home accounts for almost half of your annual energy cost, it’s important to make sure that your A/C system is operating properly and efficiently and that your ductwork is free of leaks.
That’s why Aloha Air Conditioning offers a variety of cooling and heating solutions designed to:
By following these tips, you can maximize your A/C system’s efficiency while saving energy and money along the way.
Making Your A/C System Work For You
To ensure your A/C system is working as efficiently as possible, here are some things you can do to get the most for your energy dollars:
1. Check your thermostat
2. Use fans
– 10’ x 10’ room or smaller = 36” fan
– 15’ x 20’ room = 52” fan
– Rooms larger then 15’x 20’ = two 52” fans
3. Keep your unit clean and clear
4. Maintain proper airflow through your system
5. Keep sunlight out during summer months
6. Install or upgrade insulation
7. Consider buying a new A/C unit
8. Maintain and service your unit regularly
