HVAC REBATE UPDATE – Message from A. Cam Fentriss, FRACCA Lobbyist

Thursday, November 18th, 2010


FP&L (Florida Power & Light) Residential A/C Rebate Schedule link: Rebate Schedule.


Updated 04/26/12: The House Ways and Means Committee is scheduled to hear testimony today on various bills to extend the tax incentives that expired at the end of 2011 or will expire at the end of this year.


According to the Joint Tax Committee, there are approximately 70 tax incentives eligible for extension by Congress, many of them are targeted to help small business owners make capital investments in their businesses.


Members of the Congress will have the opportunity to testify in support of legislation to extend expiring tax provisions they have introduced or co-sponsored legislation this year. There is expected to be discussion of extending the tax credit for the installing higher efficiency HVAC equipment (Section 25C), construction of energy efficient homes (Section 45L), the 15 year straight line depreciation for qualified improvements to leasehold, restaurants, and retail buildings (Section 168), bonus depreciation for small businesses (Section 168), and increased expensing allowance to $500,000/$2,000,000 and expansion of Section 179.


As a member of the Residential Energy Efficient Tax Credit Industry Coalition, ACCA submitted testimony urging for the extension and expansion of the residential energy tax credit. The coalition is seeking a robust energy efficiency tax credit for qualified products, including furnaces, central air conditioners, and heat pumps, of 10 percent of the purchase price up to $1,000. The coalition believes that a $1,000 tax credit is generally the minimum incentive needed to motivate consumers to improve their homes by purchasing these higher-performing products, and to do so in sizable enough numbers to positively influence residential energy consumption.

Mr. Gordan wrote: Rodrick Phillips services are AC units today and I agreed to have my picture taken and provide a statement for your web site.  Link this statement with my picture and thank Rodrick and your team. Within the last year I switched to Aloha AC for service and we recently installed a new American Standard, 5 ton, Allegiance 16 AC unit in our home.  I am very pleased with the service by the technicians and the management team of Aloha, but more important is the 22% saving in my FPL bill by converting to a much more efficient AC unit.  In addition, we received a $300 tax credit.  My only regret is that I didn’t replace the old unit sooner with Aloha. 

Updated 5/3/12: We have had the pleasure of Mr. Gary A from Lighthouse Point being our customer since 2005. We were surprised and are grateful to be able to share this letter

On 4/12/12 we met Janet B. she had performed a Google search for “rheem repair 33433” and chose Aloha because she has a Hawaiian back ground and the name Aloha Air caught her eye.

She was a pleasure to speak with and we tried to help her self diagnose her trouble shoot and get her back up and running. After a short time we decided it would be best to sent a technician over. She was more then happy to pose and write a comment about how we made her and her dogie feel.

This is what she wrote, “OMG COLD Thank you! Derek! Oh my Goodness, Derek was the best ever! He gets 200% above the best. He is true ALOHA man. Mahala the rocks totally! I am in love (only I am 30 years to old + he has a family) Most polite kind helpful wonderful man!! AND IT’S COLD!” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves and you can’t make stuff like this up as you can see in the picture below.

Our 144 Residents were grateful for the fast and reliable workmanship that we came to expect from Aloha. From day one, it was a pleasure working with Jim, Tim, Sherri, and Joey. This is one great team that had my utmost respect when I made a service call. They were always only too willing to work overtime to handle any situation for our Residents and the complex in General. Attached is a photo of the two large Evapco towers that Aloha installed a few years back, in place of the older Marley Towers. Aloha has kept them in excellent condition, as we had preventive maintenance plans in place. Besides these large units, Aloha serviced and replaced the smaller reverse cycled ones in each of the units. Joey and all Aloha Techs had a great rapport with the residents. They were always courteous and always put the customer first. It was a real pleasure working with Aloha all of those years and please feel free to contact me if you are considering a new unit (of any type) or for excellent service.”

Blue-Tube UV is the simple and complete choice in UV light for all residential applications.

Saturday, November 13th, 2010

A lot of people ask, “Does the UV light produce smells”. Well the answer is yes, some brands do for a short period of time after being newly installed. However, the brand we offer does not produce any noticeable smell after install.

Fresh-Aire Blue-Tube UV

The Original Low-Voltage UV Light Kit

Blue-Tube UV is the simple and complete choice in UV light for all residential applications. Everything you need is in the tube! Just make the electrical connections and install the UV light where needed.

 High and Low Voltage Options

Blue-Tube UV is now you available with a high or low-voltage power supply. Low-Voltage models feature exclusive Extended Range (ER) technology which eliminates low voltage problems associated with variable speed air handlers and fluctuating or over voltage issues.


• Innovative magnetic mounting bracket makes installation safe & easy

• Lifetime extended range power supply mounts inside control panel

• Weather resistant remote mountable UV lamps

• 4 lamp models to choose from


• Provides a healthier living environment for your family

• Kills mold, bacteria, and viruses where they lurk

• Reduces system maintenance

• Reduces household odors

Blue-Tube UV should be installed by an HVAC professional.

Mold and other microbes can thrive in the moist interior of the air handler  

Moldy cooling coils waste enegy and spread germs through the air system

With a UV light installed cleaned coils stay clean

Why does UV light kill germs?

UV-C light (the frequency used in germicidal UV lights) kills germs by disrupting their DNA which prevents them from reproducing, effectively killing them. In nature this frequency of light is filtered out by the Earth’s atmosphere so microbes have no defense against it.

 1. Is UV light safe for children and pets?

When a UV light system is installed in a central air system the germ killing effect takes place inside the air system and is limited to that area. There is no danger to any living thing in the home except microbes that are carried by the air into the central air system.

 2. Is it OK to look at the UV light?

Never look at the UV light when it is lit. UV-C light can give your eyes painful “sunburn”. Unplug or disconnect the unit to work on it.

 3. Our air system isn’t running so why is the UV light still on?

Mold and other biological contaminants will grow inside the air handler whether or not it’s running. Constant exposure to UV-C light keeps the air system clean.

 4. Can I upgrade my Blue-Tube UV with a different lamp?

Yes! All Blue-Tube and Fresh-Aire UV AHU lamps are interchangeable. When it’s time to replace your UV lamp you have 4 options to select from: 1 Year, 2 Year, 1 Year Odor Control, and 2 Year Odor Control.

 5. My ‘1 Year’ UV light still glows after 2 years –

Do I need to replace it?

Yes, over time the UV effectiveness of the lamps decreases even though the lamp may still be putting out visible light. ‘1 Year’ and ‘2 Year’ lamp designations refer to effective UV output not when the lamp will burn out.

 6. Will a UV light system kill mold in the walls?

No. UV-C germicidal irradiation can only kill microbes on surfaces that the light shines on directly (surface kills) or that pass by in the air stream (airborne kill).

The Fresh-Aire UV Light reduces odors, toxic chemical vapors, germs and mold in your home.

Friday, November 12th, 2010

A lot of people ask, “Does the UV light produce smells”. Well the answer is yes, some brands do for a short period of time after being newly installed. However, the brand we offer does not produce any noticeable smell after install.

The FRESH-AIRE UV light is installed in the duct-work of your central air system and is designed to help reduce odors, toxic chemical vapors, germs and mold in your home.

Detox the air in your home and protect you and your loved ones from:

  • Alternaria
  • Dust Mites
  • Aspergillus
  • E Coli
  • Pollen
  • Mold

How does the UV Light work?

By removing airborne contaminants as the air is circulated by the central HVAC system. Using a proprietary absorption media to capture VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) then reduces the captured constituents through an innovative photo-cytaltic oxidation process (PCO) which breaks them down into elemental carbon dioxide and water vapor.

Toxic airborne compounds are captured in the photo-catalytic carbon matrix

As odors and chemical contaminants circulate through your air handling system, the ultraviolet light unit utilizes a highly absorptive carbon media which captures these contaminants, removing them from the air stream, much like a sponge absorbs water.

The toxic molecules are broken down into simple water vapor and CO2

During the off cycles of the air handler the UV Light self-regenerating photo-catalytic oxidation process breaks down the captured contaminants and frees up the carbon cell to be able to capture additional airborne VOC’s and odors.

UV Light limits the spead of bio-contaminants like mold and viruses

In addition to the units system’s ability to absorb airborne VOCs, the UV light helps to maintain the cleanliness of your central ac system by shining on the duct-work, cooling coils, heat strips and blowers that are prone to biological growth that can contaminate and clog the system.

UV-C Light Kills Germs

For over a century scientists have known that certain frequencies of light have a devastating effect on microbial life. We now know that exposure to ultraviolet light in the range of 254 NM (UV-C band) disrupts the DNA of micro-organisms, thus preventing them from reproducing, thereby effectively killing them.

The Science of Clean Air

Over time mold can build up on cooling coils. this is a health risk that robs the air system of efficiency and requires cleaning with chemicals. The germicidal UV light inside kills mold and keeps the coil and air system interior clean.

Recent studies have shown that the level of invisible airborne organic chemical and odor contaminates in our indoor air is generally two to five times higher then the levels found outdoors. while some of these substances merely smell bad, others can be extremely harmful.

these contaminates, known as Volatile Organic Compounds are carbon-based chemicals that easily evaporate at room temperature. The unique technology inside the Fresh-Arie UV helps to eliminate VOCs, making your home a safer and more pleasant place to live.

Common Sources of VOCs Include:

  • Buildings materials
  • Carpets and adhesives
  • Upholstery fabrics
  • Vinyl floors
  • Composite wood products
  • Paints and varnishes
  • Sealing caulks and glues
  • Carpet cleaning solvent
  • Home and personal care products
  • Air cleaners that produce ozone
  • Cleaning and disinfecting chemicals
  • Cosmetics
  • Smoking and fireplaces
  • Fuel oil and gasoline
  • Moth balls
  • Vehicle exhaust from an attached garage

We look forward to discussing your home air quality with you.
