Services That Can Improve Commercial Indoor Air Quality

Monday, September 15th, 2014

The heavy insulation on commercial buildings today forms a superb heat seal that helps boost energy savings. But this seal also traps dust, dirt, and other contaminants inside buildings, where they continue to circulate and accumulate, leading to a decline in the air quality in business structures.

With low indoor air quality developing into a major problem in the U.S. today, you have probably wondered what methods you can use to improve the air inside your workplace for the comfort and health of your employees, customer, and/or clients. Justice Air Conditioning & Heating offers a number of useful services that will help you improve the quality of your building’s air, as well as assist you with receiving superior efficiency from the HVAC system, resulting in lower bills.

Some of our services for commercial indoor air quality

  • Duct cleaning: The ventilation system in a building will eventually become a major repository of debris that circulates through the building. Over the space of two years, enough dust and dirt can accrue inside the ductwork to have a significant negative impact on the building’s air. Professional duct cleaners equipped with high-pressure industrial vacuums and agitation tools can thoroughly clean out this source of contamination and raise the air quality.
  • Air purifiers: A number of different installations fall under the general heading of “air purifiers.” There are mechanical filters, such as HEPA filters, that trap airborne pollutants and keep them from entering the working spaces. Electronic air purifiers use ionization of contaminating particles to draw them down to plates. Mechanical filters are a less expensive option, but they are not as thorough and do not affect all particles. Consult with an indoor air quality specialist to find out what type of filter or purifier will benefit your business the most.
  • Dehumidifiers: Humidity is one of the principal enemies of comfort inside a building. But high humidity will not only make a workplace feel stuffier and hotter; it will also contribute to water damage and the growth of molds that can have a major impact on the healthiness of the air. Commercial dehumidifiers are an excellent way to balance humidity for comfort and for better indoor air quality.

It is often difficult to know exactly what type of pollutant you need to deal with inside a building; that is why you should call on professionals experienced with indoor air quality in Alice, TX.

Justice Air Conditioning & Heating has specialists who will pinpoint where you need help for better air in your commercial building, and then provide the solutions.

The Benefits of Ductless Cooling

Monday, August 18th, 2014

We are in the dog days of summer here in Alice, TX, and if it’s almost time to replace your air conditioner, you have some choices available to you. One of these choices is a ductless AC system. The word “ductless” can give the impression that ductless cooling in Alice isn’t whole-home air conditioning, but it is, and it has certain benefits that you may want to consider. As with any new air conditioning installation, it’s always best to hire trained professionals for your installation and repair needs, like the ones at Justice Air Conditioning & Heating.

How Does a Ductless System Work?

A ductless air conditioner uses an outdoor unit very similar to a traditional split-system AC, but instead of delivering the cool air via ductwork, a ductless system uses individual indoor blowers. Blowers are mounted in the rooms or areas in which you’d like cooling, and connected to the outdoor unit via a conduit that contains a power line, drainage line and refrigerant tube. The indoor blower contains a fan and coils, and provides cooling by blowing cool air directly. An outdoor unit can support up to 4 indoor blowers.

What Are the Benefits of Ductless Cooling?

The first, and most obvious, benefit is that ductless cooling does not require ductwork to deliver cool air, which allows non-ducted homes to have whole-home cooling. Other benefits include:

  • Better energy efficiency – with individual blowers, you cool only the spaces you need to, and not your entire home. Reducing cooling demands means using less energy, which can save you money in your monthly utility bills.
  • Customized comfort – each blower operates independently, allowing you to set the cooling you want for each particular space.
  • Easy installation – indoor blowers mount easily against walls, and the hole for the conduit is around 3” in diameter. Once the blower is mounted, it just needs to be connected to the outdoor unit via the conduit.

Ductless cooling in Alice can be a good choice for your home, but the best way to determine this is by working with an expert. Call us today and schedule an appointment.

Justice Air Conditioning & Heating specializes in the installation of air conditioners, and we can help you with the installation of your ductless AC from start to finish.

3 Benefits of Air Conditioning Maintenance

Monday, July 7th, 2014

Your air conditioning is working well, so you don’t need a technician to take a look at it anytime soon, right? Not quite! Even if your system is running smoothly, a sudden breakdown in the middle of the Texas summer is always a possibility. You can reduce the chances of this with regular maintenance. Still not convinced? We’ve put together a list of 3 benefits of air conditioning maintenance.

1. Better Performance

If you schedule maintenance for your air conditioning unit once a year, it’s likely to perform better than it did before. During maintenance, a professional technician will inspect your system for damages, clean any dirty components, and perform any necessary adjustments. Dirty parts often cause your system to run less efficiently than you would like. It may take your system longer than necessary to cool your home, or you may feel like your home doesn’t quite reach the expected temperature at all. Cleaning the indoor and outdoor coils helps to regulate this so that you’ll feel cooler for the rest of the summer.

2. Higher Energy Efficiency

Problems with your system means your AC has to work hard to keep you cool. With one cleaning and refrigerant adjustment by a technician, your air conditioner will work as it should, resulting in increased efficiency. In fact, the cost of maintenance can certainly be worth the savings on your energy bill. The technician can also tell you if anything is inhibiting energy efficiency or if your system should be replaced with a more efficient one, so you can rest assured that you’re not paying more every month than you should be.

3. Peace of Mind

Finally, scheduling once-a-year maintenance gives you peace of mind. In Alice, you can’t afford a sudden costly AC breakdown. Maintaining your system helps to prevent further damage to your system caused by loose or dirty components. A technician can tell you about any parts of your system that need repair, so they won’t fail when you need your AC the most.
