Air Cleaner w/ Germicidal UVC Light

How Uv Germicidal Lights Clean The Air 1

Organic growth, mildew and other tiny particles aren’t the only things that can reduce the quality of your household air. There are also millions of microbes, some of which can cause illnesses. Our Air Cleaner with Germicidal UVC lamp harnesses the energy of the sun’s UVC rays to destroy the DNA of living viruses and bacteria so that they can no longer reproduce and over time, disappear.

UV light systems that are built into your ductwork can kill, not just trap, airborne particulates. Any germs that make it past the air filter are then exposed to UV light in your ductwork, killing even the most stubborn of organisms.

In addition to improving your short and long-term health and comfort, the UV light will also be installed near your indoor HVAC unit, shining light and killing bacteria, mold, and fungi on your indoor coils, condensate drain pan, and other core components of your system. This will help keep you A/C or heat pump running cleanly and efficiently all year, reducing your need for maintenance, repairs, and replacements.

Additional Tips for Allergy Sufferers

  1. Microorganisms love humid, dark and warm environments. Keep humidity lower than 55%. If you don’t have a dehumidifier, get one.
  2. Since your HVAC system has an air filter built in, running your air conditioner can help you feel better. It also helps naturally dehumidify the air.
  3. Frequently clean the linens and fabric in your home with hot water.
  4. Keep pets outside, but we understand that sometimes that’s just not possible. If you can, however, keep them out of your bedroom and sleeping spaces. These areas of the home have the most fabric and where you spend the majority of your time.
  5. Consider covers for your mattresses and pillow.
  6. Keep bugs and insects out of the home by sealing all entry points. Sealing leaks in your home will also help lower your energy bills. Go around your home with an incense stick or single-ply toilet paper and hold it up to areas where you suspect a draft. If there is indeed air flow, use weatherproof caulk or expandable foam spray to seal the cracks and gaps in and around your home.
  7. Fabric drapes, carpet, and rugs may not be the best choice. Consider different flooring options like hardwood, tile, and vinyl.
