Alpha Air put a split system into my older style 2nd level apartment in Elwood. A more complicated process than many other properties. They were prompt , thorough & flexible about the upfront deposit. The tradies who installed the unit were respectful, friendly & did a great job. They even sent someone back to the property (at my request) free of charge, to help me set up the WiFi control system. I’d definitely recommend Alpha Air Heating & Cooling.

We have just had AlphaAir helping us with a new ducted reverse cycle system for our home- they were such a brilliant team, starting with Matt, Darren, Locky and also Daniel & the other person that helped installing the unit onsite. They were very accommodating despite their busy schedules, had been prompt and professional with answering all questions we have asked in the process. We do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking to install/update their heating & cooling systems. Thanks guys :)

Couldn’t speak more highly of the team- Matt who organised a last minute install after another company mishap, full explanation and application for for gov rebates which others didn’t, so saving me hundreds. Daniel, Dylan, Matt, amazing service and craftsmanship start to finish. Every step of the install Daniel took the time to show and explain where he would be placing units and made sure I was satisfied. Was professional and cleaned up the site after checking multiple times. Walk through at the conclusion for any questions and showed me his work. I absolutely recommend to anyone looking for heating and cooling. 10 stars.

Alpha Air installed our electric reverse cycle ducted air conditioning and heating system. Alpha is a family run business and provided personal and professional service throughout all stages of the process. Also, their price was competitive and the installation was completed on schedule. I would highly recommend Alpha Air for their expertise, customer service and their friendly and extremely competent staff. Daryl Gilbert

I requested a quote from Alpha a little while back and was told that the installation would be straightforward and a 'good deal'. When i received the quote, i was shocked that the pricing was 60-70%+ or more higher than market value of the units plus a reasonable install fee, so of course I let it go. I was continually contacted to take up the offer, but I ignored. When i initially submitted this review, i was immediately harassed, phone called repeatedly about this feedback, basically telling me / threatening me to remove the feedback. The owner is a charlatan looking to take people for a ride and is also dishonest. Be wary.

We had a great experience working with Alpha Air. The team were fast to respond to my enquiry, especially in the middle of summer. They provided competitive quotes/prices both for the installation and our preferred product (Split System Air conditioning unit). Installation was quick and easy to organise.

What To Do When Your Heating System Is Blowing Out Cold Air (One Easy Fix)

An HVAC system is made up of many parts that work together to give your home warm, comfortable air. Just one slight error in any of the dozens of delicate components will cause your entire heating unit to malfunction.

However, there is ONE simple way to fix 80% of all heater problems – and you can do it yourself!

What to do when your heating system is blowing out cold air

Most of the time, your heater releases cold air because the air filter is dirty. Every heating system has at least one air filter between the inlet and outlet ducts.

When left unchecked, the filter will accumulate dust, fur, and other pollutants. The furnace will have insufficient ventilation to produce heat, but the fan will continue to blow and circulate cold air into your rooms.

The blockage will also cause the heat exchanger (the part responsible for transferring heat indoors) to overheat.

This will drive the limit switch to trip, effectively shutting off the entire heating unit, causing it to release cold air instead.

How to clean your heater’s air filter

  1. Switch off the thermostat and your heating system.
  2. Locate the air filter.
  3. Take a photo of the parts with your phone. This will be helpful later on when reinserting the filter in the right direction.

Tip: You can also mark the airflow’s direction with a Sharpie for future reference.

  1. Remove the air filter. Some models have the filter behind a service panel that you must take out first.
  2. If the filter is reusable (plastic frame), rinse it with water and let it dry completely. A disposable filter (cardboard frame) must be replaced with a new one.
  3. Reinstall everything back the same way you removed them.

How often should I clean the air filter?

You should clean your home air filters once every month, though it depends on your specific filter’s shelf life. More expensive ones can last up to 3 months, so be sure to check the filter’s label.

You should never forget to clean the air filter if your home has pets. Dust, fur, and bacteria can grow on a blocked filter, which can be especially harmful to people with allergies.

Other possible reasons why your heater is blowing cold air

If you’re still feeling cold air even after cleaning the air filter, there is likely a serious, underlying issue with your HVAC unit. Among those are:

  • Component failure (thermostat, circuit board, igniter, limit switch, etc.)
  • Heat pump issues
  • Insufficient gas supply or leaking ducts
  • Blocked vents
  • Clogged coils

You should call a professional for an inspection because if these issues are left unchecked, they could cost you hundreds in repair costs.

Avoid costly mistakes, call a trained professional

The inner components of a heating system are highly sensitive; even the slightest bump can result in system malfunction.

Should you break any vital components, you may have to replace the entire unit, which can cost thousands of dollars.

Leave the issues with your heater in trained professionals’ hands.
