If you switch on your heating or air conditioning and discover there is a very unpleasant smell, your HVAC system is probably suffering from what is known as ‘Dirty Sock Syndrome” (DSS).
Only a decade ago there were just a few documented cases of this syndrome, mostly throughout the Southern United States. However DSS is something millions of people have to contend with once the temperature drops and they seek some warmth in their homes.
DSS is caused by bacteria that collects and grows on the coils of heat pumps and ACs. Odors are created when heat pumps go into defrost or when systems operate in heating for a limited period of time and are then put back into cooling mode. The bacteria accumulate and grow on the coil during this heating time and odors are released when the indoor coil gets cool and damp. Heat pumps and air conditioners experience the problem when they are reactivated after heating has been used.
By design, Phenomenal Aire CPG units destroy bacteria and mold. In a recent residential application in Charleston, South Carolina Phenomenal Aire was installed to address DSS. The odor was eliminated from the home and Phenomenal Aire continues to ensure a clean, odor free, ion rich living environment for the home owner..
The Morris Jenkins Company recently installed a Phenomenal Aire Series R CPG unit in the home of Tom Barnette. Mr. Barnette had been using UV technology in his home’s HVAC system. He was unsatisfied with the performance and ongoing costs of maintaining the technology. Mr. Barnette chose to install Phenomenal Aire and was so satisfied with its performance he sent TPI a personal testimonial.
“I had been using a UV-C Light, but didn't like it for several reasons. (1) My HVAC system emitted an odor and (2) it was costing too much to replace every year. I was kind of skeptical about the Phenomenal Aire product when it was presented to me by my HVAC service company, Morris Jenkins. I had never heard of Phenomenal Aire before, so while Michael performed a routine system service, I read over the brochure he handed me and then I checked out your website. I was impressed and considering if it would do what it says it would do, it would beat the price of replacing a UV-C light every year and comparatively would pay for itself in four years. So I told my HVAC tech Michael to install Phenomenal Aire unit and I would try it for 30 days. If I wasn't satisfied with it he could remove it and refund my money, but I would not buy another UV-C light. I never asked for a refund and I am extremely satisfied with the performance of the Phenomenal Aire product. My wife never complains about any odors in the house and when people ask me what the air smells like, I tell them it smells like nothing".
By design, Phenomenal Aire CPG units destroy bacteria, mold, airborne pathogens and removes odor from the air we breathe.
Phenomenal Aire is easy to install in residential HVAC systems, requires no maintenance & requires no scheduled replacement of parts.
"My daughter had been coughing for three months and the day it (Phenomenal Aire) was installed the coughing stopped! "

"I recently had Phenomenal Aire installed in my new heating & air conditioning unit. I was experiencing "dirty sock syndrome” and did not know what to do. Jeff Jones, owner of Jeff Jones Heating & Air of Summerville, installed the Phenomenal Aire unit. Since the installation I have not experienced any more smells coming from my heating and air conditioning unit. Thank you Phenomenal Aire and Jeff Jones Heating & Air!"
