Do You Breathe?
Filter Service & Maintenance
The filter is one of the hardest working parts of your heating and air-conditioning system. All of the air circulating through your home passes by the filter to be cleaned. Clogged and dirty filters decrease the efficiency of your system costing you money in increased energy bills. More importantly, your health suffers. Regular maintenance of your systems filters keeps the air you breath cleaner.
Quality filters and maintenance plans offer by General Cleaning and Restoration help to assure that your system runs at optimum efficiency and your health as safe as possible.
Air-Care electrostatic filters offer low resistance for maximum air-flow and still capture 94% of air-borne irritants. These filters clean the air by using static electricity, a safe, naturally occurring phenomenon. An electrostatic charge is generated by air flowing through a maze of static prone fibers. Airborne particles are attracted and held by the static charge until released by washing.
Cleaning the Air-Care filter is quick and easy. Simply remove the filter and flush with water in the opposite direction of the air flow. Then, rinse the other side. Spray with a little cleaner to remove stains, rinse thoroughly to remove the left over dirt and re-install. The entire process takes only a few minutes. This reasonably priced filter offer anti-microbial protection for your home, never needs replacing and offers a lifetime warranty.

We have all seen a cold spread from one person to another in a home or office. Many kinds of bacteria and viruses pass through the air and they can thrive on the inside of heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and associated filters. Sick Building Syndrome occurs when contamination has become so excessive, that infectious organisms permanently reside in a home or building.
Mold, one of the most common allergens, is often found growing on HVAC system coils. If your allergies act up when you enter a home or building, it may be the biological growth in the air conditioning system that causes your reaction.
Odors in the air?
Persistent bad odors in a home or office is another problem that can often be traced to biological contamination in HVAC systems.
Is your air conditioner working harder?
Reduced air conditioning efficiency can be the result of bio-contamination on the HVAC coil - wasitng energy and money.
The Solution is -
Ultraviolet Air Disinfection
The reduction of airborne microorganisms helps control the spread of colds and other illnesses that are transmitted through the air. The EPA says that indoor air is one of the top five environmental health risk of our time...while the Centers for Disease Control offer guidelines for using UV in hospitals to reduce the spread of tuberculosis...
Ultraviolet light is well know to be germicidal (at certain frequencies). It is used widely to keep food and liquids germ-free during processing and packaging, and has been built into aircraft ventilation systems to help prevent infections. Ultravation UV air disinfection equipment "floods" areas of an HVAC system with UV light.
As air circulates through the system, it is disinfected, resulting in a dramatic reduction of air-borne bacteria and viruses. As an air conditioning system draws air, mold spores are drawn into the system, which accumulate and grow on the wet AC coil. UV works to keep mold from growing on the coil, which helps prevent mold and mold spores from being distributed by the system. The constant re-circulation of air through the HVAC system helps keep mold growth throughout the home or building in check.
UV saves money, too!
Bio-contaminant build up on an AC coil acts as an insulator. This causes the system to work harder to cool the air, wasting energy and increasing wear and tear on fans, compressors, motors and other components. Ultraviolet Air Disinfection works to keep the contaminants off the coil, helping to optimize the efficiency of the system - it's an investment that can pay for itself!
