Eco Breeze EB-2228 ceiling mount air circulator with LED lights and ionizer

I have recently installed an Eco Breeze EB-2228 ceiling mount air circulator with LED lights and ionizer.

It is basically a small fan with energy saving motor (claimed to be able to save up to 30% electricity) function to improve air circulation and regulate the room temperature, best working together with a nearby air-cond. It will boost the cooling effectiveness and efficiency of the air-cond, and claimed to be able to save up to 20% electricity consumption cost of air-cond too.

Under the fan is a 360 degree air jet rotation grill, which can let us manually direct the air blowing direction by stopping the grill rotation at a fixed position, or to let the air circulate 360 degree by keeping the jet rotating.

Surrounding the grill are several blue and white colour LED lights (the black dots in the photo above. They are off when the photo was taken), which will produce a soft, dim, aesthetic lighting.

There is a built in ionizer, which can be manually turned on or off.

At the outer part are 4 E27 lamp bulb base, which can put in LED bulbs. The light bulbs do not come together with the air circulator package, and need to purchase separately. In the photo above, I use the 5 watts warm white (yellowish) LED bulbs, which are pretty bright when all 4 of them are turned on.

This Eco Breeze air circulator comes with an all-in-one remote control, which can control separately for:
  • Fan on/off
  • Fan speed (slow, medium, high)
  • Louver vent oscillation on/off
  • Ionizer on/off
  • On/off timer (2, 4, 6 hours)
  • Light on/off
  • Circulation among 5 lighting modes
The 5 lighting modes are:
  • Single LED blue light
  • 4 LED white light
  • Air circulator internal blue light
  • 2 diagonal light bulbs
  • 4 light bulbs
After installation, this Eco Breeze EB-2228 air circulator is flat with the ceiling. It needs a 6 inches space above the ceiling to fit in completely.

The fan blades is pretty short though. Therefore, do not expect the wind produced will be as powerful as normal ceiling fan or wall fan, which has longer blades than this air circulator. After all, it is meant to circulate the air and best working together with nearby air-cond or ceiling fan, rather than blowing air like normal fan by itself.

Yale YKB/200/CB2 20 hooks security key cabinet box with combination lock

I have just purchased a Yale YKB/200/CB2 20 hooks security key cabinet box with combination lock to secure and organize my apartment keys.

This key box with powder coated black surface can be wall mounted. It can be secured with its 3-dial resettable combination lock. This keyless access design is the main attraction for me to buy it, as most other similar products are using normal key lock, causing the user to still need to carry the key to unlock the box.

This key box is pretty small. Its dimension is 20cm x 16cm x 8cm. It contains 20 key hooks inside, able to store many keys. You can lock your car's remote control and apartment door/lift access RFID cards in it too.

JetBox air-cond cleaning service by Dustbox Solutions

Dustbox Solutions has just performed an impressive cleaning service for the 4 units of air conditioners at my home today.

Engaging a good air-cond cleaning service provider is not easy. The price to clean one unit of split wall-mounted air-cond (for both indoor and outdoor unit) in Klang Valley can range from around RM75 to around RM200.

The price tag might or might not be related to the following factors:

  • Type of cleaning (e.g. chemical clean, water clean, ...)
  • Type of air-cond (e.g. inverter type normally cost more, higher HP normally cost more, ...)
  • Technology use
  • Comprehensiveness of the scope of service
  • Workmanship
  • After service warranty period
The Jetbox air-cond cleaning service by Dustbox Solutions cost me RM120 per unit, regardless of the HP of the air-cond, which I find is value for money. All my air-conds are normal type (not inverter type), and the one with the highest power is 2 HP.

The payment can be made using credit card on their website while booking for their service online. There will be surcharge if you opt to pay by cash when the actual service commenced on site.

The company sent 2 workers to my house, and they used about 45 minutes to clean one unit of air-cond with their JetBox power cleaning technology. They carry a blue JetBox with them to perform the cleaning, which I was told the machine is R&D from their own company.

They have even put up the video below in YouTube to explain about the JetBox indoor unit service.

The scope of service covers:
  • Outdoor unit checking for compressor fan, running capacitor, refrigerant gas pressure, and copper pipe liquid.
  • Indoor unit checking for swinging flap function, water leaking observation, visual check, air temperature check, and air flow check.
  • Refill of R22a gas.
  • Outdoor unit cleaning with chemical, rinse the condenser coil and compressor cover, check fan bearing and lubricate.
  • Indoor unit cleaning with chemical covering coil unit, barrel fan, covers, filters, louver & drain pan, treat condensate drain with anti-algae, disinfect and wipe cover.
I was given a detail service report for each unit of the air-conds (the scope of service listed above is copied from the checklist in the report), and 3 months of workmanship warranty.

If there is any faulty in terminal wire, supply wire, relay/fan capacitor, compressor, motor, gas leakage, run capacitor, etc., their worker can perform a repair for you with additional repair charges.

I am satisfied with their service and will engage them again for air-cond cleaning service in the future.
