If you see ice formation of bigger pipe which is also known as suction pipe, then you may have dirty filter, dirty fan coil, or the blower of your indoor unit is not rotating at all while it still getting power supply properly.

If you would clean it at least once in a year then you can have assurance of better air circulation without any blockage in your aircon. If you would have blockage in the condensing unit, then it reduces the cooling performance as well as it would reduce the life of your compressor as well. Also, it would increase the electricity bill as well for you.

Other than this, improper room shape and size or blockage of the airoutlet by anything can also cause this issue.

Precaution to use it wisely 

- Make sure you never block air intake or outlet vents by any means.
If you would do this, then it will reduce the performance and you may face complications in its working as well. Also, it is advised that you never insert any kind of object such as stick or pen inside these vents. Doing that could be dangerous for you as it may touch electrical components and fan.

- Never use any kind of heating equipment at close distance from aircon.
If you would expose the aircon with excessive heat, then its plastic parts may get deformation due to heat. It is advised that you use air conditioner only for cooling of room and you do not use it for any kind of other requirements that are not allowed by the manufacturer.

Make sure you are not using Air conditioner for any other requirement such as preserving your food, keeping animals, drying clothes or cultivating any kind of vegetables with it. If you would do that, then it might damage your aircon and it might have various other complications in it.

- For better comfort choose the most suitable temperature according to you age, situation and surroundings.
In a room if you have young kids or elder people, then you should maintain the proper temperature for their comfort. You can easily do that by adjusting the temperature that gives comfort to them.

It is a good idea that you avoid the exposer of your body in the direct contact of air flow for a very long time. This is advised because of various health reasons and you should follow this suggestion for your own health benefits.

Is Aircon Harmful for Health?

How could you escape the sweltering outdoor conditions during hot seasons without the revolutionary invention of an air-conditioner? Air-conditioner are so useful and handy everywhere today. However, air-conditioner even as a modern luxury often freaks people out.

The most common concern folks have about air conditioning is that it is bad for the human health. Well, while the concerns are absolutely valid because an air conditioner can greatly impact your health and wellbeing, it also depends on a variety of other things. For example, it depends on the kind of air conditioning system you have in place, if it is suitable for your building, and if it is clean and regularly maintained.

There are a host of health problems that are directly linked to air conditioning systems. However, it should be understood that air conditioning systems in and of themselves do not cause the said health problems. The health complications arise when the air conditioning units are not well maintained, thus, allowing mold and other harmful microorganisms to thrive.

Generally, the following are the health concerns reported as arising from the regular use of or exposure to air conditioners:

--Illness and Constant Fatigue- Research reveals that individuals who work in environments that are air-conditioned in excess sometimes develop serious headaches and fatigue. Individuals that work in buildings with air conditioners often develop mucous membrane irritation and sometimes a difficulty in breathing. This, then, leaves the individuals prone to contract colds, flus and a host of other illnesses.

--Dry Skin- if you spend long hours in air conditioned environments, your skin may lose moisture, and if you aren't going to aid your skin with a regular supply of moisturizers, you may develop a dry skin.

--Exacerbates Symptoms of Chronic Illness- Air conditioning systems can worsen symptoms of chronic illnesses. It is especially known to exacerbate the symptoms of arthritis, low blood pressure, neuritis, and making the management of pain difficult for those suffering the chronic sicknesses.

--Intolerance of Heat- it is not surprising that there is an increase in heat related deaths in summer during heat waves. Those people who spend a long time in air-conditioned environments become intolerant of very hot temperatures. This is primarily due to the transition from cool environment indoors to the hot outdoor environment.

--Breathing Problems- Air conditioning systems have been found to be the worst offenders responsible for circulating microorganisms and germs that trigger breathing problems. A research conducted by the Louisiana State Medical Center discovered that there were eight types of molds residing inside 22 air conditioners out of 25 air conditioners examined. Air conditioners are now widely regarded as agents aiding the circulation of airborne ailments such as Legionnaire’s Disease- which is a potentially fatal contagious disease whose symptoms include pneumonia and high fever.

--Sick Building Syndrome- Some of the ailments due to air conditioners aptly fall into the category of sick building syndrome. Air conditioning is mostly blamed for causing sick building syndrome. However, there is inconclusive evidence to link the syndrome to air conditioning. The problem is very prevalent in modern air-conditioned offices. However, the problem can also arise from poor workplace ergonomics. The symptoms of the problem include fatigue, difficulty in concentrating, headaches, nausea, and irritation of the ears, nose and throat.

These problems can be avoided. It is recommended that employers survey employees to find out whether any of them is suffering from an issue related to air-conditioning. They should also check and ensure general office cleanliness. Importantly, employers should monitor the operation of air conditioning systems. Further, they should check the condition and cleanliness of air conditioner filters as well as adhering to planned maintenance schedules.

Often, when people vilify air conditioning systems, they forget about the immense benefits that aircons have brought. It is easy to overlook the convenience of having a regular supply of cool clean air when you go on the offensive against air-conditioning systems. Undoubtedly, air-conditioning systems have a positive impact on any person’s health. The air conditioning systems improve comfort levels and activity, etc.

While it is perfectly okay to argue that fresh air the best, it is worth remembering that with the proliferation of industries and the environmental pollution going on, the air you breathe outdoors is today not as good as it used to be a century ago. The outdoor air could contain pollutants and dust as well as pollen and airborne spores which may equally have a negative impact on your health. Therefore, opening the office windows invites all these things to your office, which is not a very good thing especially for people suffering from allergies.

Air conditioners can obviate all these risks because they come fitted with a variety of filters; filters that range from those that just catch dust to those which filter bacteria, odors, smoke, and pollen. Whichever type of filter in your air conditioning system, it will greatly improve the air quality by a significant degree. In case the filters in your air conditioning system do not meet the requirements, then you can upgrade to improved filters.

That air conditioners can improve air quality is not in doubt. Even acclaimed experts in the area concur that air conditioners can prevent a host of health problems. Dr. Michelle Bell of Yale University, environmental health department, avers that exposure to some airborne particles significantly increases one’s risk for hospital admission and can cause a premature death due to cardiovascular ailments. According to Dr. Bell, a well maintained air conditioner system significantly lowers a person’s risk to suffer from health complications that arise from exposure to the said particles.

Various researchers also unanimously agree that during intense heat waves, air conditioners save lives. It is clear from the foregoing that a well-maintained air conditioning system poses no health risks to anybody. Instead, it improves the quality of air and, thus, staves off a variety of complications. What, however, AC systems are charged and guilty of is their very real and destructive impact on the planet earth. Indoor heating is one of the biggest contributor to accumulation of harmful greenhouse gasses.

All in all, if you think that your air conditioner makes you, or any of the people you know, sick, then there is definitely something wrong with your air-conditioning system. Let it get checked. In and by itself, an air conditioner is not harmful to human health.

Mitsubishi Starmex MLZ Ceilling Cassette Type Review

The temperatures in Singapore can be rather extreme and people are always on the lookout for a new way to control the air flow inside of their homes and businesses offices. Though, as many will find after residing in Singapore for awhile, the prompt realization will come that there are numerous people that have some form of air conditioning unit.

The tropical temperatures in the Asian country can bring a day for heat and humidity. However, the people are also on the watch for ways to conserve energy and the planet for the future.

Looking for a way to enjoy the comforts of an aircon unit as well as contributing to the planet's greater good, people often do extensive research into how such an endeavor could be achieved.

With the various brands that are available to the public, the search for the right aircon to conduct one's business with can be an exhausting task.

The Mitsubishi Starmex MLZ Cassette Type is one type of product that Mitsubishi offers a solution to become environmentally friendly by using as low of an amount of energy consumption as possible. The product is manufactured in Singapore which is a huge advantage for those who wish to continue their support of the products Singapore brings to the world.

The small size of the MLZ Starmex Ceilling Cassette Type holds the dimensions of 840 x 840 x 258 mm. The design and creation of the unit is meant to be compatible with the look and interior dimensions of the needs of the consumer who require this specific device.

A ceilling cassette should be installed in the center of the room, overhead, and is used to ensure that the air is evenly distributed. It is important to note that the cassette should never be installed near walls or corners as it will affect the airflow.

The only exception in this case is if it was meant to be that way per the designer's specifications.

In regards to the Mitsubishi Ceilling Cassette, the creators developed the new Ceilling Cassette for some very specific reasons. The main objective was to ensure that the small size didn't sacrifice the quality.

The three central goals of the designers were to achieve the following points below.

1. Maintain Optimal Performance

2. Ensuring Proper Heat Is Produced

3. Sustaining Quality Air

1. Maintain Optimal Performance
As individuals install the MLZ Starmex Ceilling Cassette, certain problems could occur if not handled properly. With that said, if you are unsure as to how the cassette should be installed, it is perfectly fine and advisable to seek assistance.

As the creators worked diligently to create the best possible aircon cassette, they knew that the device should be designed in such a way as to provide the opportunity for easy installation.

The small design had a slight chance of not being able to perform at its best. However, the problem was remedied as the new models, like the MLZ Starmex Ceilling Cassette, were equipped with a DC fan motor.

A DC fan motor is a device that allows a reduction in the amount of electricity that is consumed by the aircon unit. After much testing, the MLZ Starmex Ceilling Cassette is able to run, even with its small size, at an optimal level of efficiency.

2. Ensuring Proper Heat Is Produced
With the unit being installed overhead, the heat circulation was needed to be taken into consideration. Proper creation of the device was desirable to make sure that the warm air was able to reach the foot, or floor, level.

With these modifications taken into consideration, the warm air will be able to balance the cooler air which will cause a higher level of comfort.

3. Sustaining Air Quality
One of the issues that were needed to be remedied while creating the MLZ Starmex Ceilling Cassette was the amount of dust being collected throughout the air. For hygiene and quality of life standards, the designers strived to ensure that there were very little dust particles in the air.

In this way, the consumer can be at ease knowing that the air they're breathing is clean and not affected by their aircon.

As with most models that Mitsubishi created, the transparent window with the MLZ Starmex Ceilling Cassette enables a person to be able to look through the window to see how much dust has been accumulated.

For best results, of course, the consumer would need to ensure that this is well maintained.

Were The Creators Successful?

It is quite obvious that the designers with Mitsubishi are quite dedicated to their work in ensuring that the products are of high quality while, at the same time, taking heed not to put the global environment at risk.

With the creation of the MLZ Starmex Ceilling, the features that are brought to the consumers of Singapore are quite appealing.

· Hot-Start

· Dehumidification

· Vane Control

· Condensate Removal

The purpose of the features associated with the cassette is to ensure that optimal air flow is achieved as well as simplifying the installation process that is required with the cassette.

Overall Review and Final Thoughts

The Mitsubishi Starmex MLZ Ceilling Cassette Type focuses on bringing quality air to the homes and businesses of Singapore. Furthermore, Mitsubishi does recognize the importance of proper air flow, clean air circulation, and always stand behind their products.

As with most of Mitsubishi's products, the Starmex MLZ Ceilling Cassette comes with a 5 year warranty. The inclusion of the warranty shows that they are willing to work in a conscientious approach to bring the best possible product to the public in Singapore.

How To Install Aircon For Schools

An environment with perfect temperature regulation enhances comfort. When it is neither too hot nor too cold, you will feel relaxed and more comfortable. It can be difficult and somewhat challenging to depend on the weather to regulate the temperature naturally. That is why you can rely on the aircon systems to control the temperature around. A school needs a stable air conditioning system that will ensure the temperature is well regulated. So how do you find the right aircon system for a school? This is almost similar to the air conditioning system you will need for a business unit.

Finding The Right Aircon System For A School

You must ensure that you get the most ideal air conditioning system that will stabilize the temperature control of the school. A school entails a lot of students and staff members. Different rooms are included in a school, and you only need to find the right A/C unit for each room, office or hall. Some factors to consider include the following;

• The number of classes or rooms in the school

Some systems are installed to work from one control center. Here, you will need to choose a specific system that has been designed to operate under the central system. Some of these systems will be controlled by a computer. Here, the computer can shut down the entire system and also restart it whenever. If you have many rooms that are within one building, then the centralized systems are the most reliable units to choose. This will make it easier to control the system whenever there is a need.

• The size of the rooms

The classrooms will range in size, depending on the level. Some schools have classes with the exact same measurements. That means that the classes will be the same in size. That will not be such a big challenge when you need to install an AC unit in the classrooms since they are all similar. Other than the classrooms, there are also other rooms in the school. Some schools will have a dining hall, an entertainment room or a sports hall for the indoor sports. All these rooms and halls need the right type of AC units to regulate the temperature.
For the staff rooms and offices, they will need specific aircon units that will deliver the right services. Whatever the size of room, hall or office of the school, you must choose a system that is suitable.

• Where will it be installed?

There are some aircon systems that have been designed and developed to be installed outside. With this you can have a room being served by an AC unit that is installed outside. Such units can endure through the tough weather conditions. Even when it is raining, the systems will not be tampered with. If you need an indoor AC system, choose one that will offer the right temperature control in the room.

• How about the brand?

There are different types of aircon brands in Singapore, including Daikin and Samsung. These are some of the leading AC brands in Singapore. As you are choosing the aircon unit for your school, ensure that you choose one that is stable and able to serve the entire school. You must check and confirm the pros and cons of the brand that you choose.

Installing The Aircon Unit

Once you have the right AC unit for the school, you will need to ensure that it is perfectly installed. There are some steps that you can follow as you are installing the AC unit.

• Planning for the aircon unit.

Before you step out to purchase the unit, you will need to make plans. Check that you have set the budget for the AC unit that you want for the school. Too many people end up getting out of budget while they proceed to buy the aircon unit. You must also know the brand that you need to buy. When you are ready with the list, you can purchase the AC unit to install in the school.

• Ensure the unit is correctly installed

You need to ensure that the AC unit is installed accordingly. It must be level to allow the drainage system in the unit to work effectively. Also, some units might not function properly if they are not level when installed. Ideally, you should install the AC unit in an area with enough shade and where it will not receive too much rain. Even though some units are designed to be installed outside, direct sunlight can decrease the efficiency of the heat exchange. To solve this, you can have plants and shrubs around the unit to block the direct sunlight. Also, ensure that the airflow is not blocked by the shrubs or plant trees.

• Ensure that every AC unit is well-connected

You will also need to check that the AC unit you want to install is correctly installed and connected to the power supply and the filter unit. Also, you should ensure that the centralized systems are all connected to be easier to control using the computer.

• Make the right settings

You should also set the thermostat of your aircon unit as high as possible. Set it to be suitable according to your comfort. Also, you should avoid placing TVs or lamps near the AC thermostat. This is because the thermostat will sense heat from the appliances, and this can make the AC unit to operate for longer. As a result, the AC unit can overheat.

Ensure that all the settings have been carefully adjusted to allow the unit to operate efficiently. The fan speed should be set on high, but not on the humid days. If the humidity is high, you will need to set the speed of the fan low enough to enhance the comfort. When the speed is low on a humid day, it will help to cool the rooms better. Also, it will get rid of the moisture from the room.

For a perfect installation of the aircon unit in the school, it is advised to hire a professional aircon dealer. The dealer will help you get the right aircon system for the school. Also, you will save the effort of installing the unit on your own.
