APCO Whole-House Air Purifier

Introducing Advanced Photocatalytic OxidationAPCO in Furnace

The award-winning APCO system (Advanced Photocatalytic Oxidation) represents an entirely new type of air purifier. APCO is installed in the ductwork of the central air system

where it scrubs the air as is passes by. APCO’s unique combination of UV-C light and activated carbon achieves  unmatched germ and odor reduction without producing any harmful ozone. APCO is particularly effective at reducing odor-causing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which include toxic chemical vapors like formaldehyde and toluene.

APCO is a winner of the prestigious AHR Innovation Award, the highest honor in the HVAC industry! There are several APCO models, designed to fit all types of air systems, which all use the the same award-winning technology. Peck Heating & Air will help you select the right one for your home or business.

What exactly does APCO do?

Let’s face it, no one wants visiting friends or family to smell the cat box or last night’s garlic sauce. You could use a spray or a candle but those things just perfume the air. APCO actually removes odors by transforming odor-causing VOC molecules into harmless water vapor and CO2. So keep the cat, and fry that fish!

The UV-C light in APCO works just as well at keeping AC coils clean as our non-PCO products. Moldy coils shorten the life of the air system and waste energy by reducing efficiency. UV-C light kills the mold and reduces the need for system maintenance.

According to the EPA indoor air pollution is often five times worse than outdoor and represents a significant health risk. An APCO whole-house air purifier improves indoor air quality by destroying odor-causing and potentially toxic VOCs, while sterilizing mold, bacteria, viruses, and allergens from the air stream.

How Furnaces Emit Toxic Gases

Are there toxic gases in my home?

The reality is that furnaces do produce toxic fumes while they operate. However, our systems have been created in such a way that the gases are safely vented out of the house. Also, there are certain safety measures in place such as the automatic heater shut off mechanism if something should go wrong with the unit. With these safety features in place, homeowners are spared the worry that they may be inhaling poisonous fumes without knowing it. How Furnaces Emit Toxic Gases - Roseville

In Roseville, Peck Heating & Air offers heating installation solutions if the heating system stops functioning properly due to age or lack or maintenance. In fact,  they provide assessment and intervention. They can restore the heater to its normal function after checking all the other components as well.

It is important for homeowners to know how furnaces vent and produce toxic fumes:

When the burners light up, heat is generated—a lot of it. The natural gas burns and then releases toxic chemicals. This can be dangerous if passed into the home where people can inhale them. This is where the heat exchanger comes in. This metal tube which is open at each end accommodates the gas. When the burning gas increases the temperature of the long metal tube, the air around it is heated. This air is free of gases, and with the help of the blower fan the duct system brings this air into the home. The  fumes remain contained within the length of the tube. They are then let out through the venting pipe and into the atmosphere.

The system has a very simple set-up. This simplicity keeps people safe in their homes. However, problems can arise and when they do, the issues can be major. For example, if there is structural damage to the heat exchanger, the toxic gases can enter the home. If there is a clog along the venting pipe, the gases will backflow and a similar issue arises. However, if regular maintenance is conducted, these problems may be prevented. Heating installation services in Roseville such as Peck Heating and Air can do a great job at making sure that everything is working accordingly.

Heater Repair vs. Replacement

When is Time to Repair or Replace Your Heater?

Heater Repair vs. Replacement in Roseville/Granite BayIf you need to replace your entire heating system the overhead cost could be very high indeed. Homeowners must have the requisite knowledge to know when a repair can do the job and when a replacement is the only existing option. The decision to go for the installation of a new heater depends on many factors. The homeowner makes the final decision after the options are weighed.

Make an Informed Decision

These are the signs that something is awry with your heating system and it might be best to replace it.

  • Heating bills have increased significantly in the past few months, yet you did not increase usage of the heating system. Just like other pieces of equipment, heating systems can eventually wear down with time. The parts are not as efficient as they once were. This leads to increased usage of energy due to lowered efficiency. If you opt for a new system it will be more economical in the long run.

  • If you are making too many repairs in a given period of time, it might be more cost effective to get a new heating system. However, if you don’t mind paying for repair services every week then you can hold on to your heating system. But if the repair bills are way over budget, consider getting a replacement.

  • A ten year old furnace is old, and a heating system that has been in your home for more than a decade has an even higher chance of failing. With good maintenance, and old system can continue to function very efficiently. However, consider all the other factors discussed above when deciding whether to just go for repairs or buy a new one.

If you decide on replacing your furnace instead of having repairs done, call (916) 864-3483 for Peck Heating and Air. We will help you find the best replacement. Our company is based in the Roseville area and can assist in all matters pertaining to residential heating systems. Aside from installing new heating systems you may call us for repairs on the old one as well.

 

Things That can go Wrong with Your Home Furnace

The repair of heating equipment is mostly a concern during winter months in Roseville, California. The weather in California is mild, but the valley can be quite cool, even during the daytime. To keep one’s home warm & comfortable, a furnace that functions reliably is absolutely necessary. When things are not going well with your furnace, the problem has to be identified early on so that the repairs can be done before bigger problems crop up. Hence, before choosing a repair service, make sure that it is reliable so your family’s comfort level is not compromised.

Below is a list of common furnace problems and a few tips for determining such issues:

  • Clogged burners– The tips of the burners can get clogged with dust and dirt particles. If this happens they need to work harder, and this results when heat levels are lower than expected. Moreover, the furnace ends up wasting energy. When there is too much dirt clogging the burners it will not work and this manifests as low heat production from the machine. Unfortunately, this equates to high energy bills. However, a trained technician can solve this problem by cleaning the burner heads.
  • Broken fan– If there is a problem with the fan, the air does not blow and air flow is reduced. This means that heating time is slower than normal. If the motor gets burnt then the fan might break, bend, or lose proper alignment. Also, if there is an electrical disruption, the fan’s power supply can be totally cut off.
  • Thermocouple or igniter problems– The thermocouple controls gas flow while the igniter lights the gas. If there is a broken igniter or thermocouple, the system will eventually shut down and it will not run.

There are many other things that can go wrong with a furnace. For more information, you can contact Peck Heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. We have experienced technicians who are ready to take your inquiries as well as schedule repairs. If you are facing any issues with your heating equipment, just give us a call and our friendly technicians we will be at your service.

Characteristics of a Professional Heating Installer

Track record: Do not be too quick to trust an installer that just popped up overnight. Make sure to hire a company which has a license to operate as well as insurance. It takes many years of experience before the company’s valued employees can consider themselves experts at the job. Field experience counts and it will be good to know that the company has the trust of the community as well.

Look for guarantees: Contractors who are confident with the work that they do will surely offer guarantees. They are confident the job is done right and know the customers will be satisfied. Thus, they back it up with guarantee.

Certified technicians: North American Technical Excellence certification (NATE-certification) is the one and only industry-wide certification granted to HVAC technicians. Confirm that the installers you are hiring have this certification and can safely handle the details of the job.

Service awards from the industry: Service awards are presented by the HVAC industry every year to their most reliable and reputable members. It is better to find a company which has been recognized by the industry.

Customer referrals: Customer referrals are useful references as well. A business that thrives on positive feedback must be doing things right.
