Product Highlight: PuriFi Responsive Air and Surface Purification System

PuriFi Air Purification System

For our customers who require an environment with very high air quality, the PuriFi Responsive Air and Surface Purification System is our most effective option. There are several good air purification systems available but the real time monitoring is what really sets the PuriFi system apart. The system includes an air purification device that is installed in your existing HVAC system and the PuriFi Air Quality Sensor that operates 24×7. The sensor detects particulate levels every 90 seconds. If particulate levels exceed your desired level, the system is activated until particulate levels are again below your preferred threshold. You can control the entire system and view from your smartphone or the included Smart Hub.

Unlike systems that work with UV light, the PuriFi’s Airborne Molecular Purification (AMP) technology a covers every room with natural, long-life, high-energy, molecular ions attacking the contaminants at the source. Every vent in your home or business becomes its own air purification system.

How well does it clean?

In addition to reducing odors, bacteria, and household particulates such as pet dander, pollen and dust, the PuriFi Air Purification System has demonstrated a 95% total airborne reduction of the COVID Delta Variant in 29 minutes and nearly complete removal within one hour.

The PuriFi Generator creates high energy oxygen ions which clean the air and surfaces, including those that can’t be reached with regular surface cleaning.

Maintenance is simple, you just need to replace the PuriFi 02 catalyst every two years. The system notifies you when it’s time to replace it. You will also need to replace your regular HVAC filter a bit more often as the oxygen ionization will make it work much more efficiently at trapping particulates.

Watch a video to see more details about how the PuriFi purification system works.

We’d be happy to provide a quote to install this system in your home or business.

Are You Ready For The Fall HVAC Season?

Dirty Furnace Filter

Fall is approaching quicker than ever and now is the perfect time to make sure your heating system is running better than ever before winter hits. No need to make winter even colder than it already is! With the proper HVAC maintenance it will ensure that you are getting the best possible value and performance from your heating and cooling systems all year-round.

Below are some helpful tips to get your HVAC system ready for the upcoming season!

Change your filters

It’s been quite the summer and your filters probably took a beating. Now is a great time to change them out for some new ones! Dirty and clogged filters can actually do more harm to your system than you think. Take the time to change them now to prevent higher costs in the future.

Dirty Furnace Filter

Check your Registers

The heat registers in your home serve a very important role since they are the endpoint of the air duct system and are responsible for distributing warm air into your home. If they have dirt or dust inside of them, both the efficiency and air quality can be impacted. Cleaning them will keep your HVAC system running efficiently.

Test your System in Advance

Turning your furnace on a couple times prior to the colder months can help determine if all the parts are running properly. You don’t want to discover any problems during the coldest times of the year and then get caught without heat.

Schedule Professional Maintenance

As always, we encourage you to have a regular/seasonal maintenance schedule. This can ensure that your system is working to its fullest potential while also running efficiently to cut down on your bill. Our service technicians are more than happy to help you get the most out of your HVAC unit.

Need more information in regards to the upcoming season? Reach out to us today at 541-926-8950. We are here and ready to help!

Providing HVAC Service While Social Distancing

At Greg’s Heating and Air Conditioning, we realize the importance of a working heating and cooling system and we continue to provide service during the stay at home period. Before entering your home, for your safety and ours, we put on fresh shoe covers, fresh disposable gloves, and on request a face mask. We make a point to touch as little as possible and maintain a responsible distance.

While most of our services are still available during this time, we would like to discuss the increased importance of indoor air quality in this new world. A modern air cleaning and purification system can not only continuously clean the air around you but the surfaces too.

Indoor Air Quality

As we all get used to the new normal of extra hand washing, social distancing, and wearing face masks, cleaning the indoor air has become even more important. Changing the air filter in your central air system is one of the most important things to remember. We have a wide variety of air filters in stock that are available with free delivery. If we don’t have your size in stock, we can get most in just a few days. Changing them on a regular basis is important to maintain the health of your system as well as the efficiency of the filtration.

Surface Sanitation from an Air Cleaning Product

We want you to be aware of an additional tool that can vastly improve the indoor air in your home or workspace. This can be added to your existing central heating or air system. It not only cleans the air very efficiently but also the surfaces in your home, office or place of business. This is not a new technology, it’s been in use for many years in places that rely on very clean air such as medical facilities, labs, and food processing. What is new are the added benefits of air and surface sanitation in our homes and indoor public spaces in the fight against COVID-19.

Miniature cleaning crew
Imagine if you could have little workers come out at night and thoroughly clean every surface in your home or office.

Surfaces are sanitized by oxidation which is accomplished by producing ozone in the form of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Adding this to the interior air is like adding a crew of tiny workers that clean anywhere the air comes into contact – automatically, every day and night. Many models also include a UV light that continuously sterilizes the air passing through. While this has not yet been tested for Coronavirus – COVID-19, it has been tested for many other viruses such as H1N1 (Swine Flu), Avian Flu, Norwalk Virus, and many more. Test results show a dramatic reduction in both airborne and surface pathogens. Learn more about the numerous benefits of these air cleaning products and how they work. Read the laboratory test results here.

This can be a key tool in fighting the spread of the virus in indoor public spaces. Business owners can provide an additional layer of defense to protect workers and customers.

“AJ from Greg’s came out to service an AC and Heat pump today. I had him install a Reme Halo. It has completely removed all the dirt and dust floating in the air in my home. This is the air purification system used in health care. It’s the best investment I have made in my home.

I can’t recommend the Reme Halo and Greg’s Heating and Air enough.”

3 Bad HVAC Habits that are potentially increasing your utility bill

We all have bad habits we would like to break, but what about breaking the bad habits that are costing you the most money first. An HVAC system can be one of the largest investments in your home and with that in mind, we are wanting you to get the most out of your system. The best way to extend the longevity of your HVAC system is by properly taking care of it. Below are three bad HVAC habits that could be costing you a pretty penny.

Forgetting to change your filter

A dirty filter that is left for too long starts to get clogged, which could lead to your system overworking and bringing up costly repairs in the future. Not only can a dirty filter block the airflow, it also can significantly lower the quality of your indoor air. We recommend changing your filter once a month or at the very least, once per season.

Constantly adjusting the thermostat

An HVAC system uses most of its energy during the start-up process. Your thermostat can be the key to either high or low utility bills. Since your thermostat determines how and when your system runs, it can affect your energy consumption. Adjusting your thermostat up and down too many times throughout the day can cause stress on your system, which can affect the long-term efficiency of the equipment, therefore costing you even more money. Using a programmable thermostat or upgrading to a programmable thermostat is highly recommended.

DIY repairs to “save on costs”

If you think that hiring a professional to come fix your HVAC equipment is expensive, just try doing it yourself. Your HVAC systems are very complex and attempting to “fix” something and making a mistake can lead to costing you more money. Don’t work backwards, call an HVAC professional to inspect your system and repair it properly, in turn saving you time and money.

At Greg’s Heating and Air Conditioning, we can help you with all your HVAC maintenance, installation and repair needs. Give us a call at 541-926-8950 to schedule a service appointment or see how you can qualify for financing today!
