Organic Pollutants in the Home

Ac services in Tampa and Westchase

Wich organic pollutants are more dangerous?

Organic pollutants found in your home that you should be concerned about are molds, mildew, VOC’s, fungi, bacteria and dust mites. Some, such as pollen, are produced outside the home and enter your home on your clothes, your pets, your hair or simply by opening and closing the front door. That is why, sometimes, getting a New AC Westchase should solve at least part of the problem.

Remember that the average 1500 sq. foot home in Florida generates approximately a wheelbarrow full of dust. And each ounce of that dust contains about 4000 dust mites! Dust mites have been identified as the single most important trigger for asthma attacks.

How Interior Paint Colors Affect Your Energy Savings

New AC Tampa Bay

In the mood to Paint It Black! When you were a teenager and wanted to paint your room black to match your wardrobe or a garish green to match the new album cover you got for Christmas, the idea probably didn’t sit well with your parents. Now you’re a homeowner, and anything goes regarding color choice! This is the time to consider how your chosen colors will impact energy costs. 

How Dark Paint Colors Make A Room Warmer

If you paint a room with no windows a dark color, it may cost you no more in terms of your cooling costs. However, dark colors tend to make a room feel smaller, so they are rarely chosen for rooms that don’t have at least a few windows. When you paint a room with one or two windows a dark color, the light from the sun will absorb into the room more than it would with a lighter color, making the room’s overall temperature warmer and requiring your HVAC system to work harder to cool that room properly.

What To Do To Cut Down Energy Costs In A Dark Room

If you have a room in your home that you want to paint with dark colors, there are a couple of things you can consider to help cut down on energy costs to cool that room. Consider painting only one accent wall in the room with a darker color, then the remaining walls with a light color. If you paint all the walls the same dark color, cover all the windows in the room with heavy curtains that will reflect the light from the sun back out of the room. While this will make the room feel smaller and more closed in, it will also help cut back on the cost of cooling the room. Regular maintenance will help as well.

 

If you are concerned about your energy bills, call an EasyBreezy AC professional technician today for an in-home assessment of the efficiency of your current system.

How Your HVAC Plays A Role In Lingering Odors In Your Home

Get a new AC in Tampa Bay

 

The biggest reason for the lingering odors in your home is your old AC system. As it runs continuously in the background daily, the air filter and air ducts pick up the substances that cause odor and disperse it throughout your home. Studies show that individuals living in a household cannot detect odors that have become a staple smell in their dwelling. For example, a family that frequently cooks with olive oil will not notice the smell of lingering olive oil in their home over time, but those who don’t visit their home often will pick up on it.  

 

How to minimize the lingering odors in your home

  • When cooking food, it’s crucial to have proper ventilation and use the aerator above the stove. If something begins to burn, open windows and doors to help with ventilation.  
  • Pets are a significant source of many odors; they carry in from outside and produce their own smells. Keeping pets regularly bathed and brushed will help reduce the odors. 
  • Avoid mildew smells by maintaining a stable temperature in your home even when you’re not there. A big mistake people make is turning the AC off when they go to work or leave their homes. This can create an ideal circumstance for mold and mildew. These fungi not only have a distinct potent odor but can also pose a severe health risk. 
  • Keep your sink drains well maintained and clear of food after all meals. Gunk can build up quickly inside the sink drain and cause foul odors in the home.  
  • Every one to two months, deep clean your carpets with hot water and carpet-safe shampoo to remove any allergens or odors trapped in the carpet.

  • Keep the trash bin empty overnight. Take any food waste or organic material such as diapers, food scraps, or coffee grounds to the main bin outside. Keeping them in the home for any period will produce odors.  
  • Clean your ceiling fans. Wipe your fan blades down with an antibacterial cloth or cleaning agent every month. As a bonus, this will also help minimize the dust in your home.  
  • Regularly clean your ovens, toasters, microwaves, and stovetops. These common appliances can quickly become dirty and hold on to odors.  
  • Ensure you are using suitable HVAC filters and replacing them on time. Using a high-quality HVAC filter will eliminate up to 50% of lingering odors in the home and improve the overall smell and air quality.  
  • Getting your AC duct cleaned twice a year and sanitized is also advisable. Doing this eliminates the odors and bacteria trapped inside and helps to reduce dust and dirt circulating through your home.

How To Care For Your HVAC When You Have Pets

AC and heating services in Tampa, FL

 

 For many people, pets are considered part of the family and remain indoors most of the time. However, some challenges can arise when it comes to the existing HVAC system in your home, or you are installing a New AC. Pets can carry pollutants into the house after a lovely afternoon walk, and the dander they can shed directly impacts your A/C and heating system because it’s one giant filtration system. If those pollutants are recirculating through your HVAC system, they can wreak havoc on your allergies and your HVAC system.

 

How to get the cleanest air quality from your existing or New AC  

Changing your air filters regularly is vital to your A/C system and your and your family’s health.

There are a few factors to consider when determining how often you should change your home’s air filters. For example, changing your filters once or twice a year may be acceptable if it is a vacation home with no pets. If it is a modern suburban home with no pets, changing your filters every 90 days work. But, whenever a pet occupies a home, changing your filters every 30 days is standard.

Never use low-quality air filters, as they allow the pet dandruff and dust to recirculate into the home and can cost more money down the road. Over time, costs increase because of the low air quality and the damage it does to your health and your HVAC unit’s vents, ducts, coils, etc. Don’t place objects that have dirt or dust on them near your intake vents, such as a vacuum, shoes, laundry basket, or pet crate.

Tips to get your AC unit running efficiently 

By grooming your pets regularly, preferably outside the home, you will also keep your pet happy and your home’s air cleaner. Doing this should also mean your air filter has noticeably less pet hair when you change it. Dogs and cats with longer, thicker coats should be brushed every 2 days and bathed every 2 weeks. You can double the time between brushing and bathing if your pet has shorter hair, so they should be brushed every 4 days and bathed at least once a month. 

Keeping your carpet vacuumed daily is another crucial step to having healthy air quality and maximizing your system’s performance and longevity. Using a quality vacuum tailored specifically for pet dandruff and hair is another plus, as it naturally removes specific allergens that pets have.  

Keeping your temperature settings as moderate as possible will save you some money and reduce the amount of hair your pets shed. In the summer months, dogs and cats shed their winter coats, and keeping the A/C settings too low or high can harm the natural shedding process. The recommended setting for climates such as Florida is between 69-76 degrees during the summer, and the setting should be from 68 to 72 degrees in the winter. A mistake pet owners make is turning the thermostat up to 80 degrees when they leave the house, which causes shedding to be a year-round problem – adversely impacting the air quality and air conditioning unit.  

While you can do much to limit the effects of pet hair and dander on indoor air quality, you’ll need some specialized help now and then. That’s why it’s always a good idea to schedule regular HVAC maintenance with EasyBreezy A/C, recommended at least twice a year for pet owners.  

During our routine inspections, we’ll make sure that your HVAC system is cleaned carefully, and we’ll identify any issues that should be resolved quickly. A checkup helps keep your HVAC system working smoothly, keeps your system running longer, and saves you money!

Anyways, if you need help seeing the problem clearly or none of these tips helped you solve your AC problem, please feel free to contact us for more information!

How Your AC Works

AC and heating company in Tampa Bay

There is hardly any building or car without an air conditioner these days. It has become a useful component of houses, homes, vehicles, and so on. With each passing day, air conditioning is becoming more and more of a necessity.  Although everyone enjoys a cool room, not all know how the air is cooled. While this may seem like something only a professional air conditioning repair company like EasyBreezy AC may need to know – understanding how something works will help you identify any issues that arise and whether they can be simple DIY AC fixes or require professional AC repair.

 

Table Of Content:

  1. Parts Of An Air Conditioning Unit
  2. How An Air Conditioner Works

Parts Of An Air Conditioning Unit

To understand how an air conditioner works, you’ll need to know the four major components of an air conditioner. These parts are:

  1. Evaporator

The evaporator collects heat from a space via a refrigerant gas. The evaporator coils are where the absorption of heat by the liquid refrigerant takes place, and after the absorption process, the liquid evaporates into a gas.

An additional function of the evaporator coil is to dehumidify the room by drawing out moisture from the incoming hot air.

  1. Compressor

As the name suggests, this is the area in which the compression of the gaseous refrigerant occurs. By increasing the pressure of the gas, the temperature rises. The gas is the transferred to the condenser for conversion.

  1. Condenser

This is where the gas refrigerant is converted back to liquid, and the heat I absorbed from the air is expelled outside.

  1. Expansion Valve

The valve is positioned between the cooling coils of the evaporator and the hot coils of the condenser. Sometimes referred to as the throttling device, it monitors the amount of refrigerant that moves into the evaporator.

How An Air Conditioner Works

When you turn on an air conditioner and select your desired temperature, there is a sensory device in the AC that senses whether there is a difference between the temperature of the room and the one selected by you.

  • If there is, then warm air is taken into the air conditioning system through an intake vent, typically located at the base of the indoor unit or in a central part of your home. Some homes have multiple intake vents. The warm air then follows through your ducts and over the evaporator coils containing the liquid refrigerant. The refrigerant absorbs the heat from the air and turns into hot gas.
  • The hot refrigerant gas is sent to the compressor which is on the unit installed outside. The gas is compressed, further increasing the gas’s temperature.
  • The now high-temperature, high-pressured compressed refrigerant gas is then transferred to the condenser which cools the hot gas back into a liquid. The heat of the gas is released into the open air through metal fins in your outdoor part of the AC unit.
  • The liquid travels through an expansion valve and back into the evaporator as a cool liquid refrigerant. The air passes over the evaporator coils and cools before being blown back into you’re your home.
  • The process is repeated until the desired temperature is achieved.

Early Attempts Of Air Conditioning Systems

AC sales and installation in Tampa Bay. Florida

Before scientists and inventors began experimenting to find artificial means to cooling the air, humans relied heavily on the natural process of sweating and some form of fanning themselves to keep cool during scorching Summer months. In ancient Egypt, the Egyptians would hang wet reeds in the windows of their homes and other buildings to use the water’s evaporation to cool their spaces.

Similarly, in ancient Rome, Romans diverted water from their cities aqueducts through the walls of buildings to create a cooling effect. In the 3rd century, Emperor Elagabalus used more than 1,000 slaves to import snow, building his own mountain of snow in the garden next to his home to keep him cool during the summer.

Inventors and scientists began to get involved in the concept of artificial cooling when Chinese inventor Ding Huan invented the first manually powered rotary fan during the 2nd century. It wasn’t then until the 17th century when Englishman Cornelius Drebbel discovered that adding salt to water cooled the air when the water evaporated. Both John Hadley, a Cambridge University Chemistry professor, and Benjamin Franklin, acclaimed American inventor, continued to experiment with the use of evaporation of other liquids to cool and freeze different objects around 1758.

Using Climate Cooling To Prevent Disease And Make Patients Comfortable

The concept of the necessity of cooling cities began right here in Florida when physician and inventor, Dr. John Gorrie, believing that cooling cities was essential to relieving local residents of “the evils of high temperatures”, began experimenting with the concept of artificial cooling in the 1840s. Dr. Gorrie believed that properly controlling climate temperature was the key to preventing diseases like malaria, and making sick patients more comfortable, thereby making it easier for their bodies to heal.

Dr. Gorrie’s first system of cooling required ice to be shipped to Florida from frozen lakes throughout the north. This clearly caused an expensive logistical challenge to making proper cooling readily accessible, so Dr. Gorrie set out to create a system to cool the air in hospital rooms using an engine powered by a horse, water, and wind-driven sails or steam to pull in air, compress it, and then running cooler air back out through pipes.

When the pipes on his machine unexpectedly froze and began to develop ice, Dr. Gorrie realized there could be another use for his machine and received a patent in 1851 for his unique technology in the first ice machine. However, Dr. Gorrie was not ever able to successfully bring his ice machine to the marketplace.

In the summer of 1881 when U.S. President James Garfield was shot twice by an assassin, naval engineers came together to build a similar ice machine cooling system to keep him cool and comfortable. This new device was filled with cloths soaked in water and used a fan to blow hot air overhead and keep the cooler air closer to the ground.

Incredibly the device can lower the temperature in his room by 20 degrees Fahrenheit, from 95 degrees down to a much more comfortable 75 degrees! Unfortunately, the device required an extreme amount of ice to operate, consuming more than a half-million pounds of ice in only two months.

The modern air conditioning system was developed by engineer Willis Haviland Carrier in the 1900s. Since then design and efficiency have improved, but the general idea of cooling rooms is still quite desirable, especially for Florida residents.

Now that you know how were the early attempts of AC systems, contact EasyBreezy AC today! Whether you are looking to repair a broken AC system or completely replace an old worn out system with a new one, we have the cooling solutions you need!

How To Prepare Your HVAC Unit To Survive Hurricane Season

AC repair in Tampa, hurricane season

Anyone who lives in Florida is no stranger to hurricane season and the other severe weather such as tornadoes, tropical storms, and thunderstorms that we are all subject to. And while the Tampa Bay area has not been directly hit by a hurricane since 1921, according to the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Tampa Bay area is one of the top five most vulnerable cities to hurricanes, and many experts estimate that the Tampa Bay area is well overdue for a direct hit, and even unnamed storms have been known to be severe enough to leave behind damage. It may seem like we are in hurricane season year-round at times, but hurricane seasons really runs from June 1 to November 30 each year.

While keeping our families safe is our top priority when severe weather threatens our area, we also can take precautions to ensure our homes are prepared to withstand the damage of a storm. We already know we need to stock up on sandbags to protect our doors and homes from flooding, and to board up our windows, but did you know there are also steps you should take to prepare your HVAC system ahead of a storm? Read on to find out what you should be doing to care for your HVAC unit before, during, and after a major storm.

RISKS SEVERE WEATHER POSES TO OUR AC UNITS

It is impossible for us to properly prepare for any major storm if we don’t understand the risks that are associated with the storm. Hurricanes and other major storms pose many risks to our HVAC units including:

 

  • Flood Damage

our HVAC systems are designed to withstand normal weather conditions, but not extreme weather conditions that bring an extreme amount of rain and flooding waters with them. This excess water can submerge our equipment and damage it beyond repair.

  • Wind Damage

high winds pose a couple different threats to our HVAC system. High winds can cause pieces of our HVAC equipment to become dislodged, and can also cause trees, electrical poles, and other flying debris to land on our systems and cause damage.

  • Lightning Damage

lightning poses the threat of striking and causing electrical damage to our HVAC systems, just like it can do to any other electrical equipment.

WHAT TO DO BEFORE THE STORM?

Use the following tips to prepare your HVAC system for a major storm before it arrives:

 

  • Keep Your Unit Maintained

proper maintenance to your HVAC system is important for many reasons, including keeping it well prepared to withstand the harsh conditions a major storm will bring with it. Having your HVAC system properly checked and maintained by a qualified HVAC professional is imperative to preparing your system for any potential risks well before a storm.

  • Anchor Your Unit

having your HVAC equipment properly installed and anchored is pivotal in protecting it from damage during a major storm. Once you know your HVAC unit is properly installed, you can also secure it with hurricane straps or metal braces to further secure it for threats posed by major storms.

  • Elevate Your Unit

if it is possible, place your HVAC unit on a higher platform and elevate it to protect it from potential flooding and water damage.

  • Clean Up Around Your Unit

look all around your HVAC unit and check for any loose items such as toys, plants, loose and dead tree limbs, and any other loose items that could be potential flying debris hazards.

  • Cover Your Unit

once you have cleared your HVAC system of any existing debris and cleaned up around your HVAC unit, use a nylon or vinyl tarp to cover your unit or cover it by surrounding it with plywood to further protect it from any potential flying debris during the storm.

  • Cool Your Home Before The Storm

major storms are known to cause large power outages, and during the storm you should be cutting the power to your HVAC unit off, so it is wise to cool your home by setting the thermostat slightly lower than you normally would to help keep your home cool a bit longer once the unit is off.

WHAT TO DO AFTER THE STORM?

Once the storm has passed careful inspection of your unit is important before you make any decisions on what to do moving forward. Remove any debris that has fallen on your HVAC unit and clear the area around your unit. If your HVAC unit or home has been affected by flooding water, or if you suspect your system may have any other damage, you need to have the HVAC unit professionally inspected before you turn it back on. Once your HVAC system has been properly inspected and cleared, it is important to turn it back on as soon as possible to help dry the inside of the home and limit mold from getting into your HVAC system or ductwork.

Contact EasyBreezyA/C today for your annual HVAC check-up to ensure your system is running the way it should be and is prepared to withstand any threats posed to it throughout the rest of hurricane season! We are also available for post-storm inspections if your HVAC unit has recently been exposed to severe weather and you suspect damage.

HVAC Fact VS Fiction

AC and heating services in Tampa Florida

Debunking The Most Common HVAC Myths People Actually Believe

It seems like anywhere you look there is a ton of information available on your HVAC system, how to properly maintain it, and how to get the most efficient use out of it. But how do you know what is and is not accurate? Don’t worry, there’s no need to sweat over it! We’re looking at the most common myths people believe about HVAC systems and separating fact from fiction to make sure what you believe about keeping your HVAC system properly maintained, efficiently running, and long lasting isn’t just full of hot air.

 

Table Of Content:
  1. You Only Have To Change Your Air Filter Once A Year
  2. You Only Need To Call A HVAC Professional If You Have A Problem
  3. The Larger The HVAC System, The Better It Will Work
  4. It Doesn’t Matter Where My Thermostat Is Located
  5. Adjusting The Thermostat As High Or As Low As Possible Will Make The HVAC System Heat Or Cool The Room Faster

 

Myth # 1 – You Only Have To Change Your Air Filter Once A Year

How this one even became such a well believed myth we aren’t sure. Over time your HVAC’s air filter naturally gets filled with dirt and dust, and this dirt and dust will cause your air filter to get clogged and your system to run inefficiently if the air filters are not changed out regularly. When your air filter is clogged, both your air flow and air quality will be reduced. You should check your air filter monthly and change it as necessary, at a minimum you should be changing your air filter every few months (at least 4 times a year)! There are some higher end air filters you can purchase that will not require you to change them as frequently but can be regularly cleaned instead.

 

Myth # 2 – You Only Need To Call A HVAC Professional If You Have A Problem

This myth is easy (and convenient) to believe because of the old adage “if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” But there is a lot more that a HVAC professional can do other than replacing or repairing an HVAC system. Your HVAC system is a complex mechanical system that requires regular maintenance and tune-ups. Regularly maintaining your HVAC system can give your system a longer lifespan and save you money in major repair costs down the road. At a minimum you should have your HVAC system professionally checked and maintained once a year, but twice a year is recommended.

Myth # 3 – The Larger The HVAC System, The Better It Will Work

This is one of the most easily believed myths out there about HVAC systems. It’s easy to believe that bigger means better. But in reality, when it comes to HVAC systems you need the system that is just the right size for the conditions in your home. If your system is too small for your home then it won’t be able to get your home to a comfortable temperature, but if it is too large for your home then it will cause the system to consistently cycle on and off which will end up costing you more money in energy costs and shortens the lifespan of your unit.

 

Myth # 4 – It Doesn’t Matter Where My Thermostat Is Located

One of the most important factors to ensuring your HVAC system consistently runs as efficiently as possible is making sure you have proper placement of your thermostat. The placement of your thermostat is important because it reads the temperature surrounding it to make sure your HVAC system is running at the right time to keep the temperature where you want it. If your thermostat is placed too close to appliances, electronics, radiators, and windows it might misread the temperature in the room and cause your system to continually turn on and off or to continue running longer than it needs to. The ideal placement for your thermostat will be on an interior wall in a room that you and your family use frequently.

 

Myth # 5 – Adjusting The Thermostat As High Or As Low As Possible Will Make The HVAC System Heat Or Cool The Room Faster

Many people believe that the higher or lower the temperature is set on the thermostat, the harder the HVAC system will work to achieve that temperature at a faster pace. The temperature that is set on the thermostat does not do anything other than tell your HVAC system what temperature you want your home heated or cooled to. Adjusting the thermostat temperature all the way up or all the way down will not make your HVAC system working any harder or any faster to achieve that temperature, which ultimately means your system will just run longer because it has to go further up or down than necessary.

 

It is great to know how to use your HVAC system to maximize efficiency, but you also need to make sure you know when to call a professional. If your HVAC system needs a regular maintenance check, a repair, or even a replacement, trust the certified professionals at EasyBreezy A/C!

How To Stay Cool If You Loose Power After a Storm or Hurricane

AC company in Tampa

There is nothing more frustrating than having to battle the heat and humidity in a stuffy home with no AC after you lose power caused by something completely out of your control, like a hurricane. Luckily you don’t have to lose your cool just because your AC is down. EasyBreezy AC has some creative ways to help you stay cool when you can’t run your AC:

 

Table Of Content:

  1. Reduce Heat Coming In From Outdoors
  2. Stay Hydrated
  3. Lay Low
  4. Get Comfy
  5. Take a Drive

 

Reduce Heat Coming In From Outdoors

The first thing you need to do when your AC breaks is make sure you reduce as much heat coming in from outdoors as possible. You should really do this even when you have power in order to maximize its efficiency. Keep windows and doors closed, and use blinds and curtains to stop too much direct sunlight from coming into your home.

Stay Hydrated

The best way to combat the heat when your AC is broken is to simply keep yourself cool, instead of worrying about how cool the room is. And the best way to keep yourself cool is to keep your body temperature down. The quickest and most efficient way of keeping your body temperature down is internally – making sure you stay well hydrated and eat cool foods. Drinking plenty of water is key! You should also try to eat cool foods like fresh fruits, frozen popsicles and ice cream, smoothies, and salads. As an added bonus, you won’t have to worry about food going bad with the fridge without power.

Lay Low

We often talk about the fact that hot air rises. When you are without power and are cut off from your A/C, then you can use this knowledge to your advantage Avoid using the upper level of your home as much as possible if you have more than one story. Even better is to get down lower if you can. If you have a finished basement that you can use, then head underground to keep yourself cool.

Get Comfy

One of the most difficult parts of dealing with heat in a home without power is getting comfortable enough to fall asleep at night. The first thing you want to do is eliminate any heave comforters and blankets. Use lightweight cotton sheets which breathe more easily. The same thing applies to the clothes you are wearing. The more lightweight the material of your clothing the easier it will be for it to breathe and keep you cool. You should obviously not wear clothing that is too heavy or too long – stick to lightweight shorts and t-shirts instead of jeans and sweaters.

Take a Drive

If it is safe to do so, and you have the ability to do so, then take a drive. A trip in the car with your car’s AC running will feel like quite the improvement over your hot stuffy home. No need to waste gas unnecessarily – if there is a store, shopping center, or even local library that is open and still has power, then check it out for a few hours to keep your family cool and comfortable.

Once power is restored to your home, follow these tips to ensure no additional damage is caused to your home or AC unit after the storm has passed. You can also prep your Air Conditioner in advance by following these tips too.
