Be inspired: Laugh Along With This Baby’s Song – Problem Solved

When you’re having a rough day, what makes you smile? For this baby, it is a Katy Perry song. Watch and laugh along as you see her transform from sad, crying baby to laughing, smiling, and getting her dance on.

How do we flip this around to be HVAC related? We all have a problem. We are all looking for a solution.

Let me just keep it short & sweet by saying: If your HVAC system (whatever part you have) has you in tears, aggravated, or has taken penny after penny out of your sweet pocket; we have something that will dry those tears right up.

Although, it isn’t quite like a Katy Perry song, the solution will have you smiling & getting your dance on.The next time you think about your HVAC problems, I hope you think of this baby and how there is always a solution to any problem. I hope you also consider calling CRT to tell us about what your problem is, we WILL listen.

Product Unleashed: Go With the “Air” Flow!

One of the most common problems associated with dirty coils.

When the HVAC System coils are dirty, you can expect your air flow to affected. Because of the build up on the coils, it will take longer for your system to heat/cool your office, home, etc.

In the case that it takes longer to heat/cool the area, it will then cause your power usage to go up and undoubtedly a higher power bill. With all of the increases that has already taken place, we all could try and save as much as possible. No one wants to waste money, and you don’t have to.

Sickness is also a risk, if the mold and mildew gets into the air stream. This made me think of a story of when the President of our company, was visiting a hotel and became sick, due to mold being in the airstream. Just the thought of the story told, makes me cringe.

Simple things like keeping your HVAC system coils clean, are easy steps to prevent these from occurring.

Featuring: Fincoil Energy Solutions – V4138 and T84

Many buildings have specifications for coatings used in the HVAC system to be NFPA 90A Fire and Smoke Rated. Thankfully, products do exist to meet these specifications as well as meet VOC specs.

If you don’t believe me, read this recommendation letter from a very well known company- Fincoil Energy Solutions. They used both V4138 and T84 to meet regulations for fire and smoke in a hospital building and were more than pleased with the results.

You can also check out more information for these two products on our website at www.cleanac.com.

Be Inspired: “Be the Positive Effect”

“The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising everytime we fall.”Nelson Mandela

On Friday, July 18th, we will celebrate the Remembrance of Nelson Mandela. Like the quote above, Nelson spoke many great words, inspiring and motivating others to believe in their dreams and to grasp them in their reach.

Nelson Mandela was well known for offering peace through addressing racial issues, resolving conflicts, and standing for human rights. These offerings resulted in Nelson being jailed in 1964 for the liberation movement against apartheid and standing ground on human rights. Nelson, however, pushed on and continued to stand for those around him after being released – which ultimately resulted in him being elected President of South Africa in 1994.

Like, Nelson, we should strive to motivate and inspire those around us – allow them to see their greatness!It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela

Below I have attached a Mini Biography of Nelson Mandela – take a look and leave your comments in the section below.

Product Unleashed: Replacing HVAC vs. Refurbishing HVAC – Drain Pan

How much does it cost to replace an entire system when the drain pan is the only problem?

With my experience of conversations with Contractors and several clients, the cost for replacement is several thousand dollars or more depending on the size of the system.

Why would you want to replace an entire system when you can just refurbish the drain pan at a much lower cost and it outlast the life of that unit.

We have 2 products that can solve all of this for you: V570 and Pancrete (also available in V4138 and T84 which are the NFPA-90A fire rated versions).

A Few Benefits of V570 and Pancrete

-V570 and Pancrete will outlasts the life of the unit
-V570 and Pancrete will renew your condensate pan
-V570 and Pancrete is a one time application
-V570 and Pancrete are a “Do It Yourself” application
-V570 will protect your Vertical Surfaces from further rust and corrosion.
-Pancrete eliminates dead spots in the pan
-Pancrete has a hydrophobic surface that helps keep pan clean
-Pancrete is Self-leveling (will go across entire surface, even under coil without having to remove)
-V570 and Pancrete are aesthetically pleasing
-V570 and Pancrete are cost efficient

As a side note, we also have other products that match up to V570 and Pancrete to help refurbish your system such as Clean Bond, Fast Attack, and PanHole Filler.

Please follow this link to watch a short video of a drain pan that we refurbished in house.

Please call us for more info on how these products will be a benefit to you or your client.

Recently, Flanagan Mechanical services purchased our Dirty Sox Kit to take care of a clients’ horrible odor problem, I have posted John Flanagan’s (owner of Flanagan Mechanical Services) story of utilizing our Dirty Sox Kit and the benefits they received. You can read John’s story below –

If you have any questions, post them in the comment section – I am glad to answer any questions you may have.

Dear Chasity,

I am writing this letter to serve as both, a hearty thank you and a testimonial to the value of your product. I will provide some generic background on our situation, in hopes of helping others understand the true value of the Dirty Sox Kit.

In the winter of 2010, we were offered to bid on the installation of a new HVAC system for an operating suite at a local hospital. Upon reviewing the engineered drawings, I noticed some issues with the design, and contacted both the general contractor and the engineer to discuss descoping the project, and helping them fix a few flaws before construction. Both parties declined, citing both schedule and budget.

My issues centered on the use of a standard, packaged HVAC unit for the job. With the high rate of ventilation air required, the room pressurization scheme, and the lack of communication available to connect to the Building Automation System, I felt they were under designed, possibly due to inexperience of the team in this type of institutional environment. Since there was unwillingness on their part to discuss these issues, I did not submit pricing, even though this is a major client for us.

Once the space was built out and testing started, the issues became evident. Room pressure control wasn’t working correctly, there was no ability to adjust or monitor space conditions, and shortly after opening he room, organic odors started, causing the room to be closed in fear of infection control issues.

The installing contractor made a list of determinations, and each one was addressed. First up was the roof. They claimed the odor was coming from the rubber roof membrane under the roof curb. The unit was opened and cameras were sent inside the curb, while air samples were taken. No indication of problems were found.

They next blamed the odor on approximately 100 feet of ductwork running across the roof. It was claimed wet insulation on the duct was causing the odor. All insulation was removed and replaced. The odor remained.

The final claim was organic growth in the walls due to poor construction. Walls were opened and tested. The wall cavities were found to be clean and odor free.

During all of this, I remained in contact with the facilities director. We had told him confidentially from the first sign of odor that it was likely organic growth in the evaporator coil which couldn’t be seen, and which only smelled as the mechanical cooling ran and created condensate to wet the growth. This theory was presented to the installer several times, and they swiftly rejected the idea.

Two years after all of the money was spent for roofing, duct insulation, labor and anything else they could think of, there was desperation to get this resolved. They still couldn’t reliably keep the operating suite open on a daily basis.

With that, I offered to let them try a product I had found online called Dirty Sox Kit. In fact, due to the volume of business we do with them, the length of time the problems had been occurring, and my inexperience with Dirty Sox Kit, I offered to purchase it for them with no charge to them whatsoever. After a review of the MSDS, it was deemed to be safe to use. Upon using the Dirty Sox Kit product as per the manufacturers’ instructions, the odor was gone immediately, and the room has been in continuous use for several months now with no return of the odor.

I am convinced that this is a valuable addition to our product offering, and recommend it anywhere that we run across stubborn evaporator coil odors commonly referred to as “dirty sock”. Had the installing contractor known about this product, they likely would have saved over a hundred thousand dollars on unnecessary other repairs outside of their original scope of work.

Chasity, please feel free to use this letter to help others understand the value of your products. You may also have any contractor or end user contact me via email for verification of my story.

Respectfully,

John Flanagan
President
