During regular use, your HVAC system tends to accumulate dust, mold, and dander, creating an environment where microbes, fungi, and mildew can thrive. These harmful particles are distributed throughout your home by circulating air and can cause significant discomfort and health problems such as sneezing, allergies, illness, and asthma attacks. Installing ultraviolet lights can remove these particles from your home to create a cleaner, purer environment.
How Do Ultraviolet Lights Work?
Ultraviolet (UV) lights destroy harmful microorganisms that are too small to be trapped by air filters, thus cleaning your indoor air. This technology has been used in the healthcare setting for decades to reduce infection and sickness, and the recent development of a small, self-contained unit offers the same benefits for your home or business. Professional installation is straightforward and doesn’t require any alterations to your HVAC system or electrical wiring. Once installed, you can rest assured that your indoor air and HVAC system are constantly being disinfected without any extra effort on your part.
Ultraviolet lights are a low maintenance option for significant indoor air quality improvements. Depending on the type of equipment you choose, the only maintenance you’ll have to perform is changing the bulbs every one or three years. Or, this can be done by your heating and air conditioning technician during your seasonal preventative maintenance visits. Ultraviolet lights consume very little electricity, and you likely won’t notice an impact on your monthly electricity bills.
Benefits of Ultraviolet Lights
Installing ultraviolet lights within your heating and air conditioning system offers many benefits. By reducing the buildup in your duct system and improving air flow through the system, ultraviolet lights will lower your system energy use. They will also keep your air conditioner coils cleaner, improving performance. They help keep your indoor air cleaner, which can reduce your allergy flare-ups and other symptoms caused by poor quality indoor air.
