UV Germicidal Lights, a Bright Idea in Air Quality

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 10% of all colds are caught outdoors, 90% are caught indoors! We’ve all watched helplessly as a cold virus passed from one member of the family to another.

You may suffer from asthma or allergies and despite desperate attempts to dust more, keep the windows closed, clean your bedding, clothing, carpeting and furniture more frequently, your symptoms still persist.

The EPA also states that indoor air can be up to 70 times more polluted than the outdoor environment. One cause is that the HVAC duct work is full of airborne germs, their particles and by products. These microbes are alive and thriving inside the furnace or air conditioning systems. The airborne germs adversely affect the air quality as they are blown past the furnace or air conditioning filter and circulated throughout the buildings.

An ultraviolet (UV) light can be used to improve the indoor air quality and to introduce a healthier living environment. A UV light with a wavelength shorter than 300 nanometers is extremely effective in killing microorganisms. The most effective sterilizing range of UV is within the C bandwidth (UVC - 253.7nm). This range is called the germicidal bandwidth. When properly installed near the air conditioning coil, the UV germicidal light kills harmful growths and eliminates the odors associated with this growth.

When your air conditioning evaporator coil is “clean,” it’s easier on the compressor which results in greater efficiency and lower utility costs. The UV light eliminates biological growth so there’s much less wear and tear on your cooling compressor, extending the life of your air conditioning equipment. It’s a great solution for well being throughout your home.
