Kill Germs and Eliminate Odors With an Ultraviolet Air Treatment System
There may be bacteria and contaminants growing within your ductwork and HVAC system that you can’t even see. HVAC UV lights kill those microorganisms to improve indoor air quality. Their technology stems from the natural powers of sunlight. It is no surprise that today it is effectively used in our HVAC systems to sterilize the air.
Some measures you can take to improve the quality of your indoor air include:
- Open a window – Most of our homes are sealed up tight to prevent valuable temperature controlled air from escaping. Unfortunately, that also means you could be sealing up the harmful pollutants within. Ventilating the air inside helps clean it out of things like fumes from paint, harmful chemicals from cleaning supplies and other indoor pollutants.
- Limit VOCs – VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, are in cleaning supplies and other household items. When these substances are emitted into the air, especially in a spray form, they can linger and lower the air quality. Limiting these products can limit the pollutants in your home air.
- Keep it clean – Regularly vacuuming, dusting and cleaning can help control the dust and allergen levels in your home. Try to wash textiles, like bedding and curtains, frequently, and keep surfaces free of clutter so dust accumulation is minimized.
Air purification – You may want to consider investing in an air purification system. At Garner Heating & Air Conditioning, we offer a variety of products to help clean the air in your home. Contact us online today for more information.
A UV (ultraviolet) light in an air conditioner works to kill bacteria in conjunction with the cooling system. As the system pulls air into circulation, the air is forced to pass through the UV light. The waves of the light destroy the molecular bonds that hold together the DNA of viruses, mold and bacteria, killing them in the process. The air is then passed through the system and back into the living space, cool, clean and free of contaminants.
UV germicidal lights in an AC are a great way to purify the air in your home. UV lights kill microbes, mold spores and viruses, leaving you less prone to colds and allergies. They also can be beneficial for those with respiratory issues since the light neutralizes VOCs.
UV lights are not effective against pet dander and will not kill dust mites. For optimal indoor air quality, UV lights should be used in conjunction with completely sealed ductwork and air filters that have a high MERV rating.
