Microscopic mold and other microbial contamination will colonize in the moisture on HVAC interior surfaces, reducing energy efficiency and can be a major source of household allergens. Germicidal UV light systems get rid of HVAC microbial contamination.

Odors and airborne germs accumulate in today's tighter homes. These organics, including allergens, become suspended in the air in increasingly greater concentrations. PCO air purifiers specifically address this indoor air quality (IAQ) problem.

UVC-Advantage is an amazingly versatile way to create an IAQ system in HVAC equipment. Starting with UV light for component disinfection, the UVC-Advantage Powered UV lamp module is a remarkable feat in compact design! It is sized so small that the lamp and power supply are integrated to form one unit. Installation could hardly be easier, but this is just the beginning. . .UVC AdvantageUVC-Advantage™ a revolutionary way to keep HVAC components clear of mold and other bio-growth!

Compact, one-piece UV Light for a new level of convenience and versatility in HVAC disinfection!

Intelligent design for unmatched versatility

Beyond the simplicity of a one-piece UV light, at 3-1/2" x 4-1/8" x 1-5/8", it will fit just about anywhere. UVC-Advantage’s size allows mounting outside or inside the air conditioner using the inner or outer mounting tabs. Or, you can use the magnet mount. Or, if needed use the included mounting plate for secure installation on duct board.


Ultravation® advanced photocatalytic oxidation (PCO) products work at the molecular level to break up common household odors as well as other organics including airborne viruses, bacteria and allergens. PCO purifiers are able to remove air contamination far smaller than can be filtered, so they are perfect to round out a complete indoor air quality system.

Find and Fix Leaks

One of the easiest things you can do to save water is to check for leaks and fix the simple ones. 

Toilets: Many times, toilets begin leaking when the toilet flapper or valve seal becomes old or worn out. To check to see if this is the cause, put some food coloring in the toilet tank and wait 10-15 minutes to see whether color shows up in the toilet bowl. If it does, you can order a replacement flapper or valve seal at one of our 12 BR Supply stores to fix the leak.

ITEM ID:  TEF 0383520GFaucets: Old and worn washers and gaskets are frequently the cause of faucet leaks. This is a simple fix but before you get started, turn the water off under the sink. Faucet washers are inexpensive. If you’re not sure what to do, contact your nearest BR Supply store.

Showerheads: Make sure there is a tight connection between the showerhead and the pipe stem, which is often where leaks occur. To make a tighter connection, you can wrap Teflon tape around the showerhead pipe and then screw it into the pipe stem. You may also need to replace the washer.

Outdoor faucets: Check your garden hose for leaks at the connection to the spigot. If it leaks, try replacing the washer to ensure a tight connection to the spigot.

Save Water Around the House

If you're normally out of the house most of the day, you're likely using more water just in your daily routine now. Try making the following small adjustments to conserve water.

Showers: While you could probably use a long, relaxing bath every night during these stressful times, showers use much less water. Limit them to 6-8 minutes if possible, and turn off the shower when lathering up or shampooing.ITEM ID:  KOR 50BP

Faucets: At the sink, turn the faucet off when you’re brushing your teeth or shaving instead of leaving it running.

Toilets: Don't use your toilet as a garbage can for tissues or dental floss, etc. You waste water flushing them down (plus things like wipes can clog your pipes).

Dishes: Skip prerinsing dishes. You can use up to 7 gallons of water a minute when you run your kitchen faucet on full blast. But a dishwasher uses just 5 gallons or less for a full cycle. Most dishwashers come equipped with a soil sensor that adjusts the cycle according to how dirty the dishes are. So you don’t have to worry that your dishes won't be clean if you don’t prerinse.

Start your dishwasher only when you have a full load of dishes. And be sure to place dishes and utensils according to the instructions in your owner’s manual so everything comes out clean in one wash. If you have a small household and don’t have enough dishes to run a full load after one or two meals, use the rinse and hold cycle, which uses only one to two gallons of water, to prevent food from getting caked on. Then run a full cycle when you're ready.

For pots and pans with stuck on food, soak them instead of scrubbing them under running water.

Washing machines: While you may have to do more smaller loads of laundry if family members are coming and going from the house or if someone is sick, try to run full loads whenever possible. If your washing machine does not have a sensor that adjusts the wash based on load size, remember to pick the appropriate water level setting—small, medium, large—for each load of laundry.

ITEM ID: BAR 2051002Additionally, pick the right soil setting for the load. For instance, choosing the heavy-duty setting can use more water and extend wash time. The normal setting works for most loads.

Only use the amount of laundry detergent needed for the size of your load and be sure to use HE detergents for HE machines. Regular detergents are too sudsy, and using too much can cause HE washers to use more water by extending the rinse cycle.

What Temperature Should a Water Heater Be Set?

Your water heater accounts for approximately 18% of your home’s energy bill. If your water heater is set too high, your energy bill will be unnecessarily high each month. On the reverse side, if your water heater is set too low your water may not get hot enough causing short showers, or worse, being at risk of growing bacteria.  If you have a water heater with a tank, you are paying to keep the water in the tank hot around the clock. Even at 3 a.m., when everyone in the house is fast asleep, your water heater is warming the water for your use. You can save a little energy and money by decreasing the water heater’s burden. 

Don’t set your water heater to anything below 120 degrees, as diseases, particularly Legionnaires' Disease, can develop in the stagnant water inside the water heater, which is quite dangerous.

What is the best temperature range for your water heater? The EPA recommends 120 degrees for several reasonsITEM ID:  AME E6N-40R

1)  It’s hot enough to keep diseases at bay

2)  It’s not too hot to cause scalding burns

3)  It will supply enough hot water for most small families and is relatively energy-efficient.

    • ITEM ID: AME G6240T40However, the best setting for you could vary based on a few factors.

Factors That Affect Hot Water Temperature Setting

These factors are not affected by the kind of plumbing you have (PEX, PVC or copper), how the water is heated (gas or electric) or even if you a tankless water heater.

  • Homeowners with a dishwasher that does not pre-heat the water may want to set their water heater to 140 degrees.ITEM ID: AME GT-140-NIH
  • Elderly homeowners or those with small children may want to keep the temperature at 120 degrees. Elevated water temperatures can quickly burn children.
  • Homes with occupants who have a suppressed immune system or respiratory disease should keep the hot water set to 140 degrees.
  • In general, for those who live alone, aim for a lower temperature in the acceptable range since the demand for hot water is less and it saves money.
  • For those who live in a large household, aim for a higher temperature to accommodate the increased demand for hot water.
  • If you want to save money, for every 10 degrees you turn down the water tank thermometer, you can save 3 to 5 percent on your energy bill.

Still undecided? Set it at 120 degrees and increase the temperature in small increments until you find the perfect shower temperature.
