Preparing your Air Conditioning System for Hurricanes

hurricane Florida 2019

The 2019 hurricane season started on June 1st and, even though forecasters are predicting a “slower-than-usual” hurricane season, it’s important to remember that it only takes one hurricane to wreak havoc.

You don’t need a very active season for just one hurricane to make landfall, so you need to be equally prepared for every hurricane season - regardless of how much (or how little) activity is predicted.

Living in Florida, we've all seen, or experienced firsthand, the amount of damage that strong winds and heavy rains can cause. You probably already have a routine that you break into whenever inclement weather is on the horizon. You bring in plants and patio furniture, board up windows, and make sure you’re stocked up on food, water and batteries, but do you prepare your Air Conditioning System?

During this time of year, when intense thunderstorms are commonplace, it’s important to know how to protect one of the highest ticket items in your home - make sure that your Air Conditioning System is on your Hurricane Preparedness Checklist!

1. Cool The House

Before the threat of the storm is imminent, try cooling your house as much as possible so you are comfortable for a while after you turn off your A/C System. Once your home is cool enough, turn off the thermostat and then turn off the Air Conditioning System at the breaker box. If you have any window units unplug them before you lose power.

2. Turn it off

If it looks like a power outage is inevitable, turn off your Air Conditioning System! Turning off the A/C, before the power goes out, greatly reduces the risk of blowing circuits and burning out the compressor when the power returns, and it protects the system from devastating power surges.

Nearly 90% of all electrical system damage occurs when the A/C is left on during thunderstorms and hurricanes. You may have to tolerate a bit of heat and humidity when you turn off your A/C, but leaving it on could cost you thousands of dollars in repairs. It is safe to say that, in this case, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure...

3. Make Sure It's Secure

Make sure your outdoor unit is properly secured to the concrete. You should regularly check the metal bolts and straps that hold your system in place for signs of rust or deterioration which could make the unit vulnerable to high winds and always keep shrubs, planters and other objects at least 18 inches from the outdoor condenser so the system remains properly cooled and working efficiently.

Prior to the storm, bring in any outdoor tables, chairs or other items that could become airborne and cause damage to the A/C System. If you’re feeling ambitious, you could even cover the outside unit with a tarp in order to keep it free from flying leaves, dirt and other debris, but make sure to remove the covering before you turn the unit back on!

Air Purifier Services in Boca Raton, FL by All-Pro Electrical & Air Conditioning

There is a wide variety of contaminants that can enter the air of your home and start to circulate through your ventilation system and through the rooms.

Mechanical air filters are effective at stopping some of the larger particles, such as dust, pollen, pet dander, and carpet and furniture lint. But there are many smaller particles that will move right through the fibers of standard air filtration systems. Often, you will need another line of defense: electronic air purifiers that use ionization to remove extremely small pollutants.

Air purifiers (also known as electronic air cleaners) must have professional installation and maintenance services to make sure that they work correctly. If you are searching for the best air purifier for your home’s needs, call on All-Pro Electrical & Air Conditioning. We provide air purification systems along with our other indoor air quality services. You can entrust us with seeing that the unhealthy and bothersome pollutants in your home’s air are effectively removed.

If you need air purifier services in Boca Raton, FL and the surrounding areas, call the indoor air quality experts at All-Pro Electrical & Air Conditioning today.

How Air Purifiers Work

Standard air filters trap particles in a medium of fibers. Air purifiers also trap particles, but they use electronic means. An air purifier uses a process called corona discharge to ionize the air around it so that it affects a region inside the HVAC system where the airflow must move. Ionization causes large particles in the air (the pollutants) to either gain or lose an electron, and this gives the particles either a negative or positive charge.
The charged particles are then drawn down from the air by a pair of plates on the air cleaner, one with a positive charge and one with a negative, where they are trapped. Other charged particles in the air are drawn toward each other, and as they clump together they become heavier and fall out of the air flow.

When Is an Electronic Air Cleaner the Best Choice?

A mechanical air filter can affect more than 99% of particles 0.3 micron in size and larger. But it requires an electronic air purifiers to effectively target the smaller particles. These include smoke, chemicals, pesticides, and odor molecules. If your home is experiencing trouble from odors and chemicals and your filters aren’t helping, then you should consider installation of an electronic air purifier.

But please make sure that you have professional assistance before making any choice. Indoor air quality professionals will discover what contaminants are in your air and then help you decide on the air purifiers, air filters, or combination of the two that will reward you with the healthy air your family deserves.

All-Pro Electrical & Air Conditioning Offer Air Purifier Services

Our indoor air quality experts provide a number of different installations to help boost indoor air quality for homes including putting in electronic air cleaners. If you are concerned about your home’s air, contact us and let us find out if you will benefit from an air purification system. The team at All-Pro Electrical & Air Conditioning also provides the services necessary to keep air purifiers running at peak performance.

Why You Should Consider Whole–House Surge Protection

Point of use surge protectors do provide some level of protection but they simply cannot contend with the level of coverage that a whole–house surge protection system has to offer.

Whole–house surge protectors have the upper hand not only in terms of the ground that they cover, but in their ability to deal with powerful surges as well.

Whole–house surge protectors spring into action as soon as excess voltage tries to make its way into your electrical system. These surge protection devices are installed right at the electrical panel, leaving them well–placed in order for swift operation. While power strips may stop power surges from frying the electronics plugged into them, a whole–house surge protector protects your electrical system itself by ensuring that this power surge never makes it to the outlets in your home to begin with.

Not only can whole–house surge protection better protect your electrical system from major power surges, such as those caused by lightning strikes or problems at the power plant, but it can also protect your entire house from more minor surges as well. When larger appliances are turned on in the home, a minor power surge can result. A whole–house surge protection system can prevent even these minor surges, which can lead to cumulative damage over time, from making its way throughout your circuits. When you consider too the fact that power surges can make their way into your home via cable or telephone lines as well, it becomes clear that more comprehensive coverage is a goal worth pursuing.

Schedule Professional Whole–House Surge Protection Services

You need to know that any work involving your electrical system is completed professional and with the utmost care. That is why you should schedule your whole–house surge protection services with a member of our staff. We will evaluate your existing system and your electrical panel, and we will make sure that your home is outfitted with a whole–house surge protector that meets its needs entirely. If you are ready to get serious about the way in which you protect your electrical system, your home, and your belongings from power surges, then give a member of the All-Pro Electrical & Air Conditioning staff a call today to schedule service.

4 Ways Your HVAC System Impacts Allergies

Allergies can turn your day into a nightmare of congestion, sniffling and coughing. Typical indoor allergens include mold spores, dust mites, cockroaches, pet dander, pollen from outside and house dust.

Here are 4 ways your HVAC system could be making things worse and how to deal with it.

hvac 3Filters
Typical pleated filters don't catch tiny allergen particles. You'll need HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters capable of stopping 99.97% of particles 0.3 microns or larger. To put it into perspective, dog dander is about 2.5 microns and mold spores range from 10 to 30 microns. Keep in mind that HEPA filters affect airflow and the performance of your furnace so you need to discuss this with an HVAC professional before making the change.

Filters must be changed every four months typically but if you're fighting allergies, you need to replace them more frequently. Allergens that build up on the filter can be blown through the ductwork and the longer you leave it, the worse your symptoms will get.

Humidity
High humidity can create the perfect conditions for allergens like mold and dust mites to inhabit your home. Low humidity levels can exacerbate your symptoms by drying out your nasal passage and throat.

If you have a humidifier, have it checked and serviced to ensure that it maintains the right humidity levels in your home. The ideal range is 40-50% in the summer or 30% in the winter. If you have no humidity control at all, you may want to consider adding a humidifier to your home's HVAC system.

Temperature
Certain allergens like dust mites thrive in warm temperatures and poor thermal distribution can create the ideal environment for them to thrive.

Ensure that your HVAC air distribution and controls are in working order to maintain the right temperature in your home. If you have no air conditioning, you lose the benefits of both humidity and temperature control in the summer, which can make you miserable with allergy symptoms.

Ventilation
Ventilation brings in outdoor air to reduce the level of indoor allergens in your home. It helps reduce humidity in key areas like bathrooms and the kitchen and discourages allergens from multiplying. If you have an allergy to pollen or other outdoor allergens, ventilation is still a must. Just ensure that you have the right air filter and this will mitigate the effects of outdoor allergens entering your home.

If you're concerned about your allergies and need to optimize your HVAC system, give us a call and we can help you assess and make modifications so you can breathe easy.

Prevent Your AC Coils From Freezing

Nothing is more frustrating than having your air conditioner coil freeze up just as the temperature outside is climbing.

Coils freeze when the temperature in your evaporator coil drops too low. Moisture in the air freezes on contact, building up ice on the coil. This buildup blocks airflow and can cause your unit to fail completely.

Why do AC coils freeze?

Low air flow prevents heat from being absorbed by the refrigerant in your evaporator coil. The temperature in the coil then plummets below freezing and ice accumulates. A dirty filter, malfunctioning fan or motor are possible causes of low air flow. Restrictions of any kind in your ductwork can also prevent the air from flowing across the coil.

A faulty thermostat can overwork your air conditioner, reducing the temperature in the coil to the point of freezing it. The unit's internal controls can also cause problems so have the entire control system checked.

Low refrigerant pressure results in a lower temperature in the evaporator coil as the refrigerant expands. This is typically caused by leaking refrigerant which must be repaired immediately.

How to prevent frozen coils

Clean and replace filters at least four times per year to maintain airflow across the coil. If you have pets or live in a dusty area, you'll have to change them more often.

Keep your blower fan and motor well-maintained to ensure that it blows enough air across the coil.

Check your thermostat and controls so the unit operates within its designed temperature range while maintaining your indoor temperature at a comfortable level.

Have a professional recharge your refrigerant if the levels get too low. Checking refrigerant pressure should be part of routine maintenance.

Keep your evaporator coil clean to allow sufficient heat transfer from the air to the refrigerant flowing through the coil. This keeps the unit operating at a higher efficiency, lowering the risk for frozen coils as well as reducing your utility bills.

If you have a frozen coil and manage to melt the ice, the problem will remain unless you address the root cause. If your unit is properly maintained, the chance of it happening drops considerably. If you need help with a frozen coil or want to ensure it doesn't happen to you, give us a call.

Is your air as delicious as mine?

Telicious airhere was a time when the air outside was more polluted than indoor air.

Nowadays, pollutants can be two to five times more concentrated indoors than outdoors. To compound this problem, most people spend up to 90% of their time inside.

Why indoor air quality (IAQ) matters

The air you breath has a huge impact on your wellbeing. Health issues caused by poor IAQ can be immediate or long term depending on the type and concentration of pollutants. Short term symptoms include sore throat, fatigue or headaches. Long term effects include the development of respiratory illnesses and even cancer.

Here are four ways to improve your home's IAQ:

Air cleaners and purifiers

You can clean the air throughout your house or you can deal with it room by room. Whole house air cleaners are placed in the return duct to your furnace. The air first passes through the purifier's filters to remove allergens and pollutants before entering the furnace. Then it gets distributed throughout your home via ductwork.

Alternatively, you can opt for a purifier that takes care of only one room. These units clean more air in that space but the obvious disadvantage is that the rest of the house won't benefit.

UV light

UV light is used in air purifiers to kill bacteria and mold spores so it helps reduce allergens in the home. Depending on the technology used, it can sometimes produce high levels of ozone, which is a pollutant. If you choose to use UV light, consult the manufacturer about the potential for ozone creation.

Natural ventilation

Depending on the weather, you can use natural ventilation to introduce clean air into your home. Open the windows and doors on opposite sides of your home to allow outdoor air to flow through. Be careful if you have allergies to pollen and dust as this can introduce more allergens into your home.

Mechanical ventilation

To increase the amount of outdoor air in your home, exhaust fans and ventilators can give you measured flow rates so you know you're getting the right amount of air. Whether or not you decide to go with an air purifier, you will still need proper ventilation to replace stale air with fresh air so this is fundamental to all homes.

If you need help cleaning out your home's air, give us a call and we can talk about the best options and how to implement them.

How To Solve Ductwork Problems

Ductwork is a vital part of your home's heating and cooling. Unfortunately, because it's mostly hidden, we tend to forget about it. But ductwork problems can cause high energy bills and issues with heating and cooling.

Here are some issues that ductwork might have and how to deal with them:

ductLeakage
If your ducts aren't properly airtight, you'll lose air to the surrounding spaces. That means energy loss, since you'll have to turn up your furnace to get a comfortable temperature. You'll also have uncomfortable rooms where there's not enough air to heat (or cool) them.

Finding leaks can be tricky since most of the ductwork is hidden. You can take care of exposed ductwork in the mechanical room, for example. Use a duct sealant like mastic or Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) certified aluminum tape to seal the leak.

Dust, allergen and germ buildup
Ducts can circulate dust throughout your house. This results in poor indoor air quality and can get your family sick. Winter colds are bad enough without dust aggravating your symptoms.

Have professionals clean out your ductwork every few years. The frequency will depend on whether you have allergies, pets or live in a dusty area.

Poor sizing
Air flow distribution depends on ductwork sizing. Even with dampers, ducts must be correctly sized for the amount of air needed to condition a space. Get this wrong and you'll have to deal with discomfort during both seasons.

If you notice some rooms consistently hot in summer and cold in winter, get a professional to assess your duct sizing. You might have to replace and rebalance portions of your ductwork system.

Poor layout
If you have duct runs that are too long, the pressure drops in the system will reduce the amount of air reaching the grilles. Similarly, if the ductwork has too many elbows and branch take-offs, the losses will interfere with your airflows.

As with sizing, get a professional to review your ductwork to see how it can be simplified.

No insulation (or not enough)
Some of your ductwork might be routed through unheated spaces, like the attic. Ideally, you want to avoid this situation but it's not always possible. Losses through these spaces can cost you hundreds on your energy bill annually.

Make sure your ductwork is insulated and verify the condition of your existing insulation. You can add another layer of insulation to ductwork in unheated spaces to save more energy.

For the optimum ductwork that keeps your home's temperature just right, give us a call and we can help you deal with any issues you may have.

It's not a good idea to purchase an AC System online

Air Conditioning systems are not “plug and play” like a refrigerator or an oven.

If you can save some money by purchasing your refrigerator online, don’t let us stop you. But, if you’re thinking of buying an Air Conditioning system online, there are a few things you should know...

All-Pro Electrical and Air Conditioning will not install a unit that we did not purchase directly from the manufacturer and neither will most reputable contractors.

woman shoppingBut why not just charge you to install the unit you purchased yourself and be happy that we didn’t have to deal with the hassle of loading and unloading this very heavy piece of equipment?

Well, let’s say you’re able to find a licensed contractor willing to install the unit you purchased online. The contractor gives you a quote for the installation, they clear their schedule, and the crew arrives at the specified time with all the additional material needed to install the unit, so far so good, right?

What if the unit is damaged in transit?

The crew unpacks the unit only to find out it’s been damaged in shipping. Now you have to contact the retailer and deal with returning the unit yourself. You’ll likely have to pay the contractor the full agreed-upon price for that visit and then you’ll have to pay again to get the replacement unit installed!

Many online retailers won’t honor their warranties.

Maybe everything went well with the installation and your system is running great for a while. The intricacy of the installation process gives online retailers the ability to shift the blame to issues related to the installation of the system rather than a defect in the unit itself. This means that, when a problem does arise, they can easily get out of any promise they made and leave you holding the bag!

What if a problem arises years after the installation?

Service companies, especially ones that aren’t particularly reputable, have a very high rate of failure (second only to restaurants) so it’s entirely possible the company you used is no longer in business when your unit fails. Had you purchased the unit from a licensed contractor in your area, the manufacturer would be obligated to honor their warranty through another authorized dealer.

What about the Manufacturer’s Warranty?

Most manufacturer do not warranty equipment purchased online “unless installed by a licensed contractor”. This means you are covered, right? Well, not really. Sometimes it’shard to determine whether a problem was caused by a mistake in the installation, improper sizing of the unit, airflow issues or the equipment itself, so the manufacturer can easily get out of honoring their warranty too.

If you hire a licensed contractor and authorized brand dealer, like All-Pro Electrical and Air Conditioning and Heating, to supply and install a unit and a problem arises, it does not matter whether the issue was caused by the installation or the equipment because, either way – you’re not left holding the bag!

What if I buy from a company that offers installation for the unit I purchased online?

Companies that provide installation for online purchases used to show the list of the subcontractors that they sold the leads to. This practice quickly fell out of favor because buyers realized that they weren’t using the cream of the crop. They use start-ups and other struggling contractors who need these leads to survive.

Hopefully, we’ve given you enough reasons to think twice before purchasing something as complex as an Air Conditioning system from anyone other than a licensed contractor and authorized brand dealer in your area.

For more information - click here to visit our friends over at Magic Touch Mechanical and read their blog on buying AC online.

And when you are ready to purchase a new AC system and have it professionally installed, we hope you'll give us a call at (561) 988-0460.
