How to mount and install the iWave-R to improve Indoor Air Quality, this product is used to treat the air in any brand of residential duct air conditioning systems up to 6 tons (2400 CFM) in size with no maintenance and no replacement parts. We recommend this product as a better alternative to a UV light as it has no replacement parts that are needed. It can be wired from 24 Volts to 260 Volts. It has a plasma output of approximately 160,000 ions per second. The unit is mounted with a 3" cut through which is positioned to the center of the blower wheel. It is important to understand how this product works and is wired in, we recommend this installation be done by an HVAC professional.

​Compressor failure caused by a bad condenser fan motor, in this case the compressor was replaced and during a return service call the condenser fan motor was not kicking on causing the unit to go into thermal overload. Some of the symptoms include a buzzing sound, high head pressure, compressor overheating, causing the compressor to possibly burn out. Its important to spend time properly diagnosing the condenser fan motor and capacitors, a weak capacitor can cause damage and failures to the equipment. It is important to always check wiring on a compressor, this can be done by checking the schematics usually found on the condenser panel, this can avoid shorting the compressor or other components, always remember to check both high and low voltage.

<![CDATA[iWave-F Air Purifier]]>Sat, 15 Jul 2017 15:13:40 GMThttp://jonesairconditioning.com/ac-blog/iwave-f-air-purifier
iWave-F is a flexible ion-generating bar that can treat IAQ in nearly any HVAC application. The air purifier provides the highest level of ionization energy in the most compact size available in the market. The highly versatile iWave-F is low maintenance with no replacement parts. As the air flows past the iWave-F, the device emits positive and negative ions, creating a plasma region that purifies the air, killing mold, bacteria and viruses in the coil and living space. The ionization process also reduces allergens, smoke and static electricity, as well as controlling odors (cooking, pet, VOCs) and other particles (no more sunbeams) in the air without creating ozone or any harmful byproducts.

iWave-F’s revolutionary circuit bar with special integrated ion-generating needles fits any HVAC cooling coil up to 48" wide. The circuit bar is chemical resistant and highly durable for long service life. Plus, it can be folded to length in the field to any size and uses engineered double-sided adhesive for the flexible bar and power pack for easy installation. It is perfect for ductless HVAC systems – specifically mini-splits, commercial VRF coils, PTAC systems – plus residential and commercial duct systems, packaged systems, transport cooling coils or even in ice machines. iWave-F can also be used to reduce outside air for commercial applications per ASHRAE 62.1 IAQP. The iWave-F is the most versatile and novel product on the market to address air quality for any HVAC system, in particular to solve mold issues common in hard-to-clean ductless systems.
<![CDATA[iWave-V Installation Instructions]]>Sat, 15 Jul 2017 15:04:47 GMThttp://jonesairconditioning.com/ac-blog/iwave-v-installation-instructions​1. Disconnect air handler power before installing.
2. Mount unit to fan inlet, internal wall duct or external duct.
3. Connect only 24 VAC nominal power. A dedicated power supply may be necessary.
4. Unit may be powered 24/7 or may be interlocked with fan – unit only purifies when air is flowing. 5. Red wire goes to 24 VAC; black wire goes to neutral or ground.
6. Green LED will illuminate when powered and there are no faults.
7. Do not touch carbon fiber brushes while powered!
8. NOTE: Make sure air flows across both brushes at the same time, like a football through a field goal post.
9. CRITICAL: Ensure all 24 VAC wiring stays away from carbon fiber brushes and is per NEC/local codes. Secure wires if necessary with wire/tape so they never move and touch brushes.
10. CRITICAL: Make sure the carbon fiber brushes are at least 2 inches away from anything metal and other wiring!
11. The best location to mount the device is after the particle filter and before the cooling coil. This ensures pathogens, mold and odors are controlled throughout the entire depth of the coil.
12. Leaving the fan in the “on” position will provide the best air purification results.
​13. Unit has a 250 VAC/1A in-line fuse. If 24 VAC is confirmed and LED is off, then check the fuse.]]>
