Crazy Pictures

We see some crazy things as HVAC technicians out in the field.  From the dirtiest air filter imaginable, to units installed laying completely on their side, we've seen it!  I've decided to post a few pics of the stuff we've encountered on service calls over the years.  You'll never cease to be amazed at the things you'll see in this business.  And this is just a few of the pics, there's so much stuff we don't get the opportunity to take a picture of.  Enjoy!

Do you have a moldy smell in your crawl space or basement?

Facts about UV-C Light:
It penetrates the membranes of viruses, bacteria, mold, and dust mites—attacking their DNA—terminating them and their ability to spread. The UV-C Sanitizing Wand emits a blue spectrum of light to help you see the surface area you are cleaning. Indirectly contacting or viewing the blue light produced by the lamp does not expose you to UV-C.
Hospitals, food processing facilities, water treatment and HVAC systems use UV-C light to eliminate biological contaminants and germs.

Bedding and couches will smell and feel fresh with consistent use of the Sanitizing Wand. Musty smells and pet odors can be virtually eliminated.
Sanitizing with UV-C light means you don’t need harsh chemicals that pollute our water and add unnecessary product packaging to our landfills. Reduced production of household cleansers means fewer chemicals in our environment and reduced fuel expenditures for transporting them to the marketplace.
The Built-In Safety Shut-Off Switch automatically turns the UV-C light off if the device is turned upward, protecting your eyes from exposure.
-Bathroom sinks, toilet seats, and showers
-Telephones, remote controls, and light switches
-Childrens toys and stuffed animals
-Living room furniture, bedding, and pillow

A:  The effects of cleaning with UV-C are cumulative, so more frequent use will result in greater sanitization of a surface. Once a comfortable level of clean has been established, pollutants can usually be controlled with a weekly sanitizing regimen to maintain the effect. Some surfaces, like those in kitchens and bathrooms, should be treated when they come in contact with contaminants. A cleaning regimen of other surfaces such as beds and couches can be done weekly, or even more frequently if required.

Q: How long should I treat an area?
A:  Different bacteria require different exposure times (see “Kill Rate” table at http://www.verilux.com/science-of-light). For example: a 24” x 36” countertop requires three minutes of exposure to eliminate Salmonella or two minutes for Staphylococcus. Be sure you move light gradually and evenly over surface.
Q: When I am cleaning a surface, how close should the wand be to the surface area?
A:  Hold the UV-C wand as close as possible to the surface and gradually move the wand evenly over the entire surface.

Q: How do I know if its working?
A:  Most contaminants are microscopic, so just like using a chemical cleanser, you can’t directly see the effects. However, in many cases people report being able to feel the effects and you may notice that biological and/or organic odors are eliminated as well.
Q: Can I use the wand on myself, family members, or pets?
A:  No. The UV-C Sanitizing Wand is for use on inanimate surfaces only and is not safe for use on your skin, and should not be exposed to your eyes. Important to note: UV-C Light is used to remove biological contaminants from surfaces, it is not a treatment for people or animals.
Q: Is UV-C dangerous to people?
A:  Very close and prolonged exposure to the wand can damage skin and eyes. Use caution to ensure that direct exposure is brief and distant from the light source.
