UV Lights and Air Quality

UV (ultraviolet) lights have been used for decades to clean food, water, and air in food-processing plants, hospitals, water treatment facilities, schools, and also in commercial buildings.

To improve air quality in homes, UV technology is also available.

A UV light idea emits low levels of ultraviolet radiation to kill germs, mold, bacteria, and viruses. Microorganisms can no longer reproduce as a result of UV systems altering their cell structure. Indoor air is often sealed up to save energy and becomes a breeding ground for harmful contaminants, whereas outdoor air is cleaned by the sunshine and vegetation. Keeping your home’s indoor air clean is essential if you want to breathe healthy air. Air ducts are fitted with one to more than seven UV light bulbs, and UV lights should be located near the evaporator coil as a large amount of condensate is produced by the evaporator. Mold, bacteria, and other various microorganisms thrive in the moisture and darkness. Install one or two UV lights inside the A-frame style evaporator and two bulbs on its exterior tubing for best results. The lights wash the airflow as it flows through the tubing. UV light systems also prevent aromas and recontamination of living spaces by protecting supply ducts from contamination. It only takes a few hours to install, then since the lights are completely concealed inside the air ducts, people and pets will not be harmed by them. The bulbs can be changed every two or more years while getting heating, ventilation, and A/C preventive repair.
