How UV Lights Work Within Your HVAC System

How UV Lights Work Within Your HVAC SystemOver the years, ultraviolet (UV) technology has been used in hospitals to help battle against germs, viruses and mold spores. Now, this same technology can be used alongside your HVAC system to clean up the air in your home.

UV lights work in much the same way as sunshine does outdoors, UV waves penetrate the thin membrane cells of microorganisms, such as germs, viruses and mold spores. While this doesn’t kill the microorganisms, the effect renders these cells unable to gather protein and reproduce.

A qualified HVAC professional can install UV lights into a sealed area of your system. This will ensure that microorganisms passing through your system are exposed for the proper duration, and it will keep your family from being exposed directly to the UV light. As the air circulates through your system, it will pass through the UV light chamber and be pushed out through your vents into your home.

Ask your HVAC professional about the use of media filters that are thicker, and more efficient than flat fiberglass filters. Media filters will not only ensure cleaner air, but will actually catch the treated cell particles that remain even after UV treatment.

There is no substitute for fresh, clean air. But having UV technology installed in your HVAC system will noticeably affect the indoor air quality of your home or office. It should be noted that keeping your home clean makes combating these germs and viruses a much easier task for your system.
